Darkmoon Comics Founder
Brandon Calloway

Writer & Creator of Black Spartans, Knights of Olympus, Michael, Detroit Red , and many more series for Darkmoon Comics and Darkmoon Manga.

I have always been a huge fan of manga and anime. I have a deep love and a lot of appreciation for titles like One Piece, Yu Yu Hakusho, Attack On Titan, and many others.

One day, my friend and I were talking about how cool it would be if we created our own and I couldn't let the idea go. I dove in and began to build the world and story of Black Spartans. After two years of research and building a solid foundation, I was able to launch chapter one of Black Spartans in March of 2021, and I am excited to keep this series running until it's conclusion over the next few years. 

It was born out of pure love and enjoyment for the Shonen genre and I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoy writing it. 

The traditional western comics side of Darkmoon Comics just came from me not being able to contain my creativity. I had so many stories inside of me that I wanted to get out. I have been lucky enough to come across some great writers and creators since launching Black Spartans, so I reached out to a few of them and together, we started writing the Darkmoon Comics Universe
