Dave Cooper was born in Eastern Canada in 1967. 18 years later he began his professional career, making what were then called "alternative comics". Gradually Dave made a name for himself and honed his craft. After about a decade his comics had gained a solid cult following, and praise from such luminaries as Robert Crumb, art spiegelman, and David Cronenberg. In fact, Mr. Cronenberg penned an introduction to Dave's last substantial work in the medium, the graphic novel, "Ripple". In recent years Dave has won a slew of awards, been translated into French and Spanish, and has exhibited his comicbook artwork all over North America and Europe, most recently with a large retrospective last February in Paris.
