Rob Worley is an American writer and editor. He is the creator of the Eisner Award-nominated comic Scratch9.

Biography[edit]

Worley founded Comics2Film in 1997, the first website dedicated to tracking news about comic book movies.[citation needed]

Worley was picked up as one of the first writers for Marvel Comics' Epic imprint when it launched in 2003. His project, Young Ancient One (a Doctor Strange prequel) was published as one third of the single-issue Epic Anthology Presents in February 2004.

Worley continued to work with former Marvel President and 360ep founding partner Bill Jemas. In 2005, they collaborated on Advent Rising: Rock the Planet alongside Arthur Dela Cruz, Cliff Richards, Dennis Crisotomo, Cris Delara and Simon Bowland, supervised by Advent creator Donald Mustard. The comic was published as a five-issue series which ran from October 2005 to November 2006.

From 2005 to early 2006 he contributed short comics stories to various anthologies published by Italy's Narwain publishing. From October 2005 to April 2006 Worley served as an English language translator on several titles, including Free Fall, Tales from a Forgotten Planet and Bluff.

After writing two novels for their young readers imprint, Actionopolis, Worley joined Komikwerks as the Director of Web Development in January 2006. He was instrumental in helping them ramp up the web presence for the new book line as well as enhancing the existing web comics site. In September 2006 the first of those novels, Heir to Fire was published, his first published novel.

Worley sold Comics2Film to Demand Media in February 2008. In September of that year the site's content was absorbed into Mania.com where Worley continued on as a contributor.

October 22, 2008 saw the publication of his new graphic novel The Revenant.[1]

Worley's creator-owned, all-ages comic book Scratch9 was published as a four-issue mini-series from September 2010 to January 2011. Jason T Kruse was the primary artist with Mike Kunkel providing the cover art for the first two issues.[2] The book was nominated for several awards including a 2011 Eisner Award in the Best Publication for Kids category.

The comic returned in 2013 with new publisher Hermes Press
