  • Arris Quinones

    Arris got struck with a massive passion for comics around 8 years old! Ever since then he has immersed himself in his love for comic books on a daily basis, which basically became his own personal comic book school. The result? He is now a literal walking encyclopedia on all things comics.

    Additionally, Arris has worked behind the scenes with Triune Films for the last 5 years in the roles of producer, writer and the occasional actor.

    On a personal note, we are all pretty sure that his comic book collection (which is the size of a small comic shop) belongs in an episode of Hoarders. Intervention to come!
