Dan Mazur grew up in Cambridge, Massachusetts. In 1983, he relocated to Los Angeles to work in the motion picture industry, then in its infancy. After 23 years on the west coast — including 17 in Topanga Canyon, California — he moved back to Cambridge, where he turned his attention to the art of comics. He has since become a household name at his house. For more information on Dan, please read this paragraph again.
…oh, okay. After working for some time as a screenwriter, I returned to my first obsession, comics. i am the co-founder of the Boston Comics Roundtable and MICE. I’ve published comics in various anthologies, including most of the BCR anthologies and Colonial Comics, I Saw You, Wake Up. My one-shot comic Cold Wind, which I wrote and Jesse Lonergan drew, was a “notable” in The Best American Comics of 2013.
I co-wrote (with Alexander Danner) Comics: A Global History, 1968 to the Present (Thames and Hudson), and we also wrote a chapter of The Cambridge Companion to the Graphic Novel. I wrote, Ibrahim Njoya, a Comics Artist in Colonial Era Cameroon which appeared in The Comics Journal, and was awarded the 2019 Article Prize by the Comics Studies Society.
I’ve taught screenwriting at the UCLA Extension school, and comics at The Animation Workshop in Viborg, Denmark, at Lesley University’s Pre-college program, and at the New Hampshire Institute of Art.
