Comic Book Artist, Writer, Film and TV Critic

Hello everyone.  My name is Gerry Kissell.  I am a humble (struggling) artist, writer, and film/TV reviewer.

I have been drawing professionally for 25+ years. I was 22 when I got my first serious art job, as artist for Selling Power Magazine, the country's #1 Sales and Marketing magazine.

I have been doing film and TV reviews as the Couch Potato Critic since 1995, published originally by The Octopus Magazine and E-Magazine, and now a featured reviewer on FilmDumpster.com.
More than being an artist, I am a proud single dad, having raised my daughter all by myself, from her infancy to her teens (she's 17 now). I am also a proud U.S. Army Combat Medic Veteran, having enlisted in 1990 and getting out of the reserves in 1998.

Since 2013, I have been working on Vindicated Inc.It proved to be a far more difficult project than I'd expected. Though it is an action thriller with military themes, at its heart, the book depicts dealing with PTSD, and disabilities, something I and a few involved with the project know something about.

I'm not looking for sympathy, but a leg up on getting these original books finished. I stay so busy trying to keep the lights on, doing portraits and other private commissions, that there's never any time left to create these amazing books in my head.

My goal is to have at least 2 books on bookshelves before Christmas, 2019.  With support, I can and will make it happen.
