Shane McCarthy presently resides in Perth, Western Australia, officially one of the top ten most furtherest away from everywhere places on the planet.

Shane is a freelance writer whose work has been published internationally by DC Comics, Marvel Comics and IDW to name a few.  Over the years he has written BATMAN LEGENDS OF THE DARK KNIGHT, DETECTIVE COMICS (starring Batman), DARK X-MEN, DAREDEVIL, STAR WARS, DEADPOOL TEAM UP and TRANSFORMERS: ALL HAIL MEGATRON.

Shane was born in remote country Victoria (specifically in the middle of nowhere) and found his passion for writing, reading and comic books as a means to distract himself from the day to day of looking at trees.

When not delving into the topsy turvy world of comics, Shane (also a professional dancer) can be found teaching and dancing the Lindy Hop all around the world.
