|Born||Antonino Gilligan Consiglio
May 28, 1970
Consiglio was born in Brooklyn and grew up in Queens, where he spent the first thirty-one years of his life. As a child, he never read superhero comics, but was a huge fan of Mad magazine. At Franklin K. Lane High School, Consiglio took a number of cartooning classes, where he created comics, strips, and illustrated humor pieces. Consiglio attended the School of Visual Arts, where his classmates included his long-time friend Alex Robinson.
Consiglio made a name for himself with the acclaimed mini-comic Double Cross!, of which he finished thirty-nine issues.
Consiglio is currently working on a new graphic novel, tentatively entitled Titanius, about a titanium-encrusted man searching for his long-lost son. A short story featuring Titanius can be read in AdHouse Books' Project: Superior (2005).
