Who is Rafael Nieves?

Rafael Nieves is an American comic book writer, with over twenty years experience in the field. He began his career with the publication of Tales from the Heart, first published by Entropy Enterprises before moving, with issue #3, to Slave Labor Graphics.

The series, co-written with Cindy Goff, and based on her experiences, told the story of Cathy Grant, a Peace Corps volunteer stationed in Central Africa in the 1980s, chronicling her trials and tribulations as a "stranger in a strange land." It was illustrated by artist William "Seitu" Hayden.

Tales from the Heart spawned two full-color one-shots published by Epic Comics, Marvel Comics' creator-owner label, and the latter, Bloodlines, was nominated for two Eisner Awards in 1993.

Since then, Nieves has worked for a number of publishers, including Marvel Comics, Caliber Comics, Comico Comics/Northstar, and Moonstone Books.

Currently, Nieves is working on The Apocalypse Plan, a graphic novel drawn by Dan Dougherty, to be published by Transfuzion Publishing, a company he co-founded with former Caliber Comics publisher Gary Reed; as well as projects for Moonstone Books.
