Xeric Grant Recipient Gary Scott Beatty read his first comic book, a beat up old Tin Tin hardcover, in his grade school library some time before the '60s Batman craze. The first alternative comic he produced (They were called "underground" then) was on his high school's ditto machine, after hours, without permission. Nearly three decades later the tools and format have changed, but Gary is still producing printed pieces that communicate and entertain.
His current projects include Xeric Grant Winner "Jazz: Cool Birth," "The One" with artist Aaron Warner, "Seductions" with Oz artist Bill Bryan and "Adam Among the Gods" with James Lyle.
His coloring and lettering for 3 Boys Productions' "Students of the Unusual" has appeared since the popular indy comic's first issue – now his logo design graces each cover. The controversial "Wedding of Popeye and Olive" Gary colored for Ocean Comics was discussed on Good Morning America, in "The New York Times," "Time" magazine and "Newsweek." His work with nationally syndicated cartoonist Aaron Warner included coloring "Adventures of Aaron" Sunday strips, producing the "Sparky and Tim" collection cover and typography and coloring for much of Aaron's advertising studio work. His cover coloring for Scott Rosema's "August" are now definitive of the character. His production assistance in Omega7's "America's Forgotten Children" publication helped lead to the recovery of several missing children. He letters for Viper and for Kaso Comics, has written scripts for Nicky Cruz Outreach and, locally, produces a full color, monthly entertainment magazine.

Jazz: Midnight, Indie Comics, and Worlds
Is madness a way to survive the zombie apocalypse? "Wounds" is a father’s attempt to save his family. Or a science fiction story about a family in an orbiting ark. Or one man’s descent into madness accompanied by Death in a tuxedo. Or a fever dream by a Black Death sufferer. Take your pick! Gary Scott Beatty ("Jazz: Midnight," "Worlds," "Number One") drops us into a world where nothing is beyond doubt, except a father's concern for his wife and daughter. If you enjoy that "What th-?" factor in graphic novels, you'll enjoy "Wounds." All will be explained.
