Biography Edit

Seagle has written numerous comics, plays, screenplays, animation and a number of original graphic novels. Seagle has a varied resume in contemporary comics ranging from super-hero franchises Superman and Uncanny X-Men (Wizard Award for Best Series of the Year) to cult favorite DC/Vertigo Comics genre books like Sandman Mystery Theatre (multiple Eisner Award nominations), House of Secrets, It’s a Bird (with Teddy Kristiansen) and Solstice (CBR’s 2007 graphic novel of the year). Seagle and Rouleau also created the Marvel Comics super-hero team Big Hero 6.

Steve’s original comic book series House of Secrets was sold as a feature to Marc Canton/Warner Brothers, and Steve wrote the screenplay (unproduced). The same week Steve also sold the genre action pilot Carnival (not Carnivale) to FOX in association with Spelling Entertainment (unproduced). In that same week he sold the girls action/comedy Dot’s Bots to Mainframe Animation completing an amazing week and an “unproduced” trifecta.

Most recently Steve co-wrote, co-directed and produced two live stage comedies. N*GGER WETB*CK CH*NK (www.NWClive.com) has played to packed houses coast-to-coast for over three years generating explosive laughs, a massive fan base, and impressive reviews including full-page features in both The LA Times and the New York Times. ArmeniaMania! (www.armeniamania.com) staged two preview performances as part of the Los Angeles Grand Performances series and will open in LA early next year.

Man of Action Studios recently launched its own comic book imprint published through Image Comics. Seagle is contributing original comic book and graphic novel properties to the line starting in 2009 with the limited series Soul Kiss.

Awards and nominations Edit

Seagle's work has received numerous Eisner Award nominations, including twice for best writer - in 1995 for his work on Sandman Mystery Theatre (DC/Vertigo) and in 1999 for the same title and his story "Drive By" in Oni Double Feature #10 (Oni Press). Seagle's work on American Virgin has been nominated twice for the GLAAD Meida Award for Best Comic Book. Seagle's run on Uncanny X-Men was awarded the Wizard Fan Award for Favorite Ongoing Series.
