Meet the Author

Mark Tatulli, who was first known for his Heart of the City comic strip, took on Liō as an outlet for his dark and twisted humor.

In addition to his cartooning experience, Tatulli is also an accomplished filmmaker and animator, and is the recipient of three Emmy awards for his television work.

Mark currently resides in New Jersey with his wife, son, and two daughters. His children are the true joy of his life and the inspiration for much of his comic artwork.

    Winged 4

    The other Eraser swung his club-like arm at me. I backed up a few steps and ran again, heading toward Ash. The Erasers were pummeling him, and half the time they didn't miss. With a scream, I threw myself on one of the Eraser's furry backs and wrapped my arms tightly around his veiny neck. The Eraser took a step back, gasping in surprise. I tightened my grip and looked at Ash. He was staring at me like I was insane, and the other Eraser was heading my way. This didn't look good. The Eraser began choking, and I squeezed my eyes shut. His claws sank into my arms, and I made the mistake of loosening my grip. He reached up and tossed me forward, and I felt blood gush from my mouth as I hit the road. I couldn't move and couldn't suck in enough air. Metalic blood continued to ooze from where I had bit my lip. The angry Eraser stood over me, and he raised his boot to crush my ribs. I covered my neck protectively and flinched.

    LIO ROX!

    I got into Lio while deployed to Iraq, I found some comic strips online and fell in love. So, I am currently collecting them, and these books are amazing. It isnt to often anymore I come across comics in the papers that make me laugh, and Lio has restored my faith in newspaper comics to do so.

    more from this reviewer

    "Lio" is the best comic strip since "Calvin and Hobbes"

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. "Lio" is clever, quirky, laugh out loud funny and dark. Anyone with half a brain and a good sense of humor should enjoy it. Adults or kids, it doesn't matter. I personally recommend it, as well as the other "Lio" books.
