CHRIS SIDES is a UK-based writer/creator of comics, among other things.

He is the writer of the self-published DARK MATTER anthologies and supernatural one-shot WHISPERING SANDS, sci-fi graphic novel IMPOSSIBLE for Markosia Enterprises and ongoing serialised crime thriller CLOSE for Comichaus, as well as a spattering of short stories for such titles as FutureQuake100% BiodegradableSliced QuarterlyMarkosia’s BRITISH SHOWCASE ANTHOLOGY 1 & 2, Dude, What? Comics’ UNLAWFUL GOOD and Alterna Comics2017 IF anthology.


He is currently the spinner of many plates, with the forthcoming sci-fi action thriller THE GUNRUNNER launching in 2018 from Markosia Enterprises, as well as INTERSECTION, a one-shot crime thriller with artist Chris Travell. He also has a handful of pitches up his sleeve for 2018, working with some tremendously talented artists such as Adam JakesJim Lavery and Daniel Franco
