Jason Momoa is poised as one of Hollywood’s upcoming leading male action stars. He will next be seen in David Hayter’s feature Wolves for Eone and Crystal Sky.

Last year, he was seen starring opposite Sylvester Stallone in Bullet to the Head, directed by Walter Hill for Warner Brothers and Joel Silver. Momoa has finished production on Road to Paloma, a road-tale, revenge thriller which he wrote, is acting in, and also directing. He was tenacious in getting this project funded.

Making his big screen debut in the summer of 2011, Jason took on the iconic character of Conan, garnering positive reviews in the Lionsgate/Millennium franchise reboot of Conan the Barbarian. Jason also played an integral role in the success of the critically acclaimed and Emmy-nominated first season of the HBO series Game of Thrones. (There was such an overwhelming response to his role of 'Khal Drogo' that they wrote his character back into the second season.)

He also established a large genre fan base from his portrayal of 'Ronon Dex' in the SyFy series Stargate: Atlantis (2005-2009) and was a Series Regular on North Shore for FBC.

Wolfman was active in fandom before he broke into professional comics at DC in 1968. Wolfman was one of the first to publish Stephen King, with In A Half-World of Terror in Wolfman's horror fanzine Stories of Suspense No. 2.

Wolfman's first published work for DC Comics appeared in Blackhawk No. 242. He and long-time friend Len Wein created the character Jonny Double in Showcase No. 78 scripted by Wolfman. The two co-wrote Eye of the Beholder in Teen Titans No. 18, which would be Wein's first professional comics credit. Neal Adams was called upon to rewrite and redraw a Teen Titans story which had been written by Wein and Wolfman. The story, titled Titans Fit the Battle of Jericho! would have introduced DC's first African American superhero, but was rejected by publisher Carmine Infantino. The revised story appeared in Teen Titans No. 20. Wolfman and Gil Kane created an origin for Wonder Girl in Teen Titans No. 22, which introduced the character's new costume.

In 1974, Wolfman moved to Marvel Comics as protégé of then-editor Roy Thomas. When Thomas stepped down, Wolfman eventually took over as editor, initially in charge of the black and white magazines then finally the color line of comics.

While at Marvel Wolfman wrote lengthy runs of Amazing Spider-Man (where he co-created the Black Cat); Fantastic Four; and Doctor Strange. He created Nova in that character's eponymous first issue. In 1978, Wolfman took over writing the Howard the Duck syndicated newspaper comic strip, which adapted several stories from the original Steve Gerber-written comics.

His best-received work was The Tomb of Dracula, a fledgling horror comic which in his six years as writer Wolfman turned into a rich, complex piece of high gothic, well matched with the moody shade-and-light pencilling of Gene Colan. Taking Bram Stoker's basic story, Wolfman created his own vampire mythology and introduced a set of new characters, including Blade.

In 1980, Wolfman returned to DC and teaming with penciller George Pérez, Wolfman relaunched DC's Teen Titans. The New Teen Titans added the Wolfman-Pérez creations Raven, Starfire and Cyborg to the old team's Robin, Wonder Girl, Kid Flash and Beast Boy (renamed Changeling). The series became DC's first new hit in years, and its first serious competitor to Marvel since the early 1970s.

Other projects by Wolfman for DC during the early 1980s included collaborating with artist Gil Kane on a run on Superman, rejoining Colan (who had also moved to DC) on the short-lived Night Force, a revival of Dial H for Hero with Carmine Infantino, and a nearly two year run on Green Lantern with Joe Staton. During their collaboration on Green Lantern, Wolfman and Staton created the Omega Men.

In 1985, Wolfman and Pérez launched Crisis on Infinite Earths, a 12-issue limited series celebrating DC's 50th anniversary. Featuring a cast of thousands and a timeline that ranged from the beginning of the universe to the end of time, it killed scores of characters, integrated a number of heroes from other companies to DC continuity, and re-wrote 50 years of DC universe history in order to streamline it.

Wolfman was also involved in the DC Comics relaunch of the Superman line, reinventing nemesis Lex Luthor and initially scripting the Adventures of Superman title.
