Ramon Gil got his first cartooning byline at the age of ten and is still waiting to get paid. Despite that he has been making up stories ever since though sometimes for highly questionable reasons. His favorite genres are science fiction, espionage and conspiracy theories sprinkled with lots of witty dialogue which he plagiarizes from conversations with people who are way smarter and funnier than he is. Ramon is taking credit for work done for Dynamite Comics, Atlas Unleashed, Vortex Comics, Bleeding Cool, The Beat, Comics Creator News, The Nerdist and Comics Experience. He is the creator ofThe Men from DARPA, The Hard Code, Truer Than Trousdale, Senturies and the Scifies and Black Stories Matter anthologies. He enjoys helping creators through coaching, workshops and panel discussions at various comic cons. Currently, he teaches comics making to impressionable young creators at the Comics Arts Workshop and is the founder and organizer of Diversity Comic Con at SUNY | Fashion Institute of Technology where he earned his Master of Fine Art degree in Illustration and sometimes teaches.
"The Hard Code is an exciting sci-fi crime story with a well thought out and developed plot, which pulls you in from the first word balloon. The smart and tense banter between Detectives Drake and Garcia will have you checking in on their tumultuous relationship for issues to come. A refreshing take on the age-old man vs. machine."
