Eisner-winning Roman Dirge created the black comedy comic character Lenore in 1992 for the San Diego alternative magazine Xenophobe, and the character of Lenore has since become a publishing phenomenon with comic books and graphic novels, and even animation, with Sony creating 26 flash-animated shorts of Lenore for their website, ScreenBlast. Inspired by the poem “Lenore” by Edgar Allan Poe, Dirge’s Lenore comics books has garnered a passionate fanbase over the years as well as celebrity fans including Neil Gaiman (American Gods) and Rosario Dawson (Sin City).
