STORM is a multifaceted multimedia production company with the mission of delivering dynamic storytelling in a variety of forms by developing graphic and literary fiction and nonfiction, audio, film, and more.

Publisher Darren G. Davis, “Comic books are an exciting mix of words and pictures,” Davis explained. “Once, I was a reluctant reader, but my attraction to the form was undeniable. I hope that other reluctant readers find the joy I do in reading comic books and graphic novels.”

Writer Michael Frizell, “As a graduate of College of the Ozarks in Point Lookout, Missouri, I found Russell Wilson’s story particularly compelling due to his unshakable faith, one of the tenets of my education. I believe readers can find inspiration in his love of God and family.”

“It’s evident that Wilson’s faith shaped him into the man he is today. Though like all of us, he’s fallible and makes mistakes, he seems to find comfort in his faith and strong ties to his family. In that, he is a role model.”  Frizell added,

STORM Comics has focused  their biographies on faith in the past such as the biography on Jesus.
