Orion Ussner Kidder was born on Vancouver Island, and the memory of being surrounded by wet trees has never left him. He grew up in Vancouver where he attended Simon Fraser University, obtained a Masters in Ontario from Queen’s at Kingston, and a Doctorate from the University of Alberta. He currently teaches at Columbia College and SFU in composition, drama/Shakespeare, and comics. He has published several articles on comics and writes reviews for the “American Comics” section of The Year’s Work in English Studies. He now lives in North Vancouver with his wife, their two children, and a very fluffy cat.
