About Gerry Kissell

Comic Book Writer & Artist,  Musician, Filmmaker, and Film and TV Critic

Hello everyone.  My name is Gerry Kissell.  I am a typical (struggling) artist, writer, and film/TV reviewer.

I have been drawing professionally for 25+ years. I was 22 when I got my first serious art job, as artist for Selling Power Magazine, the country's #1 Sales and Marketing magazine.

I have been doing film and TV reviews as the Couch Potato Critic since 1995, published originally by The Octopus Magazine and E-Magazine, and now a featured reviewer on
More than being an artist, I am a proud single dad, having raised my daughter all by myself, from her infancy to her teens (she's 20 now). I am also a proud U.S. Army Combat Medic Veteran, having enlisted in 1990 and getting out of the reserves in 1998.

Currently I work as an artist, creating art for books and movies. But, my goal is to transition to solely creating my own graphic novels and indie films, as I am as much a writer and filmmaker as I am an artist.

  • I am producing and directing a weekly YouTube program about pop culture. Join in and watch us HERE
  • I am trying to update, by writing and drawing an additional 20 pages of story for a special edition of my best selling graphic novel *CODE WORD: GERONIMO.
  • I am trying to write and draw my graphic novel action series VINDICATED INC.
  • I am trying to write and direct my original indie films which include, JUNG, THE FALLING MAN, DRUMMERS DON'T DANCE, SAINT THOMAS, THE DARKER, and UNCANNY VALLEY.

I can only do these things if I am able to free up the time and still pay the bills, transitioning away from doing work for hire all the time.

Those who become my patrons, get an inside look at the work as well as digital copies of the work. And the higher the amount of your patronage, the better the perks, which can include hard copies of books, art prints, and when I get my first film finished, a copy of the film on disc.
