My name is Dr. Barron Bell and I am a professor of Art and graphic design and a published comic book artist.

Most importantly, I am a comic book fan with a passion for the art form.  It is my goal to build a network of creatives in the comics industry from amateur to professional. 

I have been teaching for over 15 years and I have a Ph.D. in Post Secondary and Adult Education.  I also hold a Master's Degree in Film and Animation.  Currently, I am Professor of Art and Graphic Design at Liberty University.


I have published two books in the past 10 years.  Radio Free Amerika ( is the story of a pirate hip hop radio station in a post-apocalyptic refugee camp on the Canadian border. 

My upcoming book is a graphic novelization of the life and times of Frederick Douglass called "The North Star: The Emancipation of Frederick Douglass" ( coming soon.
