John Garavaglia - Writer
John Garavaglia is the artist and writer of the Subject Zero graphic novel, which is based on the Glass Cage Productions film of the same name where he also served as the creative consultant, co-writer, and producer. Garavaglia will be also involved in another Glass Cage film with his original screenplay called “Hard Knox.”
Garavaglia worked as a sports and feature writer, and also as a photographer for the Montmorency Tribune in Atlanta, Michigan. His memorable interviews include former Detroit Red Wing Darren McCarty, rock musician and hunting enthusiast Ted Nugent, extreme sports star Travis Pastrana, and Motown legend and the original writer of the immortal song "Stand by Me" Spyder Turner.
He is a recurring storyteller and guest author for Alpena Community College’s annual Evening of the Macabre, and was the first recipient of ACC’s “Writer of the Year” award in 2008.
One of his well-known stories, Lovers’ Flame, gained critical acclaim and was published in the pages of Hamtramck Idea Men’s IF-X: The Infinity Flux Experiment anthology series that had sold out in three printings. His other stories--Jammed, and Sweet and Good to Eat--have also been featured in the magazine.
Garavaglia’s first novel Sinbad: Rogue of Mars—based on the graphic novel series from Blue Water Productions—will be released this fall. The movie adaptation is currently in pre-production and will be released next summer.
