Creative Team

(Founder and Senior Writer)
Newton Lilavois

Haitian-American horror comic book writer and publisher, Newton Lilavois started reading comic books when he was eleven. He fell in love with the medium and he started drawing his own comics and sold them to classmates. 

Decades later, Newton decided to pick up where he left off as an eleven year old child. He wanted to create comic books again. 

In March of 2017, Newton teamed up with artist Gian Carlo Bernal to create the Crescent City Monsters web comic. As his fan base grew Newton launched his first Kickstarter campaign in 2018 to print the first issue. The Kickstarter campaign more than doubled its goal. Since then, it's been an incredible ride up. Newton is the winner of the 2020 Glyph Comic Book Best Writer Award. Newton continues to write black horror comic books with his new title Kisha Demon Eater.

Newton currently resides in the Bronx with his wife, two daughters, and their chocolate lab. Newton also works full time as a senior consultant for an IT consulting firm.

He's been quoted as saying "And now I am happy to be working on Crescent City Monsters. I will draw until I die, my body rots, and I will come back as a zombie and draw comics again."
