Zach Lehner spent most of his childhood and early adulthood with his nose in his sketchbook and ink on his fingers. He attended the Savannah College of Art and Design to study comics, graduating in 2008 with a B.A. in Sequential Art and again with a Masters in 2010. His first graphic novel, Junior Braves of the Apocalypse, is illustrated by him and written by Michael Tanner and Greg Smith. He lives in northern Chicago, where he reads a lot of books.
