Man of Action Entertainment is the bi-coastal writers’ collective behind comic’s largest franchise characters as well as original characters published by their Man of Action imprint at Image Comics. The four met while working on Marvel and DC most prized franchises from Superman to X-Men and realized that they were stronger together. Their original creations include Ben 10, the $4.5 billion boys’ action franchise for which they’re also executive producing the new iteration, and Generator Rex, both for Cartoon Network. Dentsu handpicked them to create/write/executive produce the all new Mega Man series that debuts on Cartoon Network next year. Man of Action launched Disney XD’s Marvel’s Ultimate Spider-Man and Marvel’s Avengers Assemble as EXP/writers. Man of Action also created the characters and team Big Hero 6, featured in Disney/Marvel’s Academy Award®-winning feature and the only comic book IP to win that award.
Rouleau’s work has won him both professional and critical acclaim as a writer and as an artist. His first graphic novel, The Nightmarist, was described as “… the best original graphic novel released in years. Miss this piece of seminal fiction, and you’ll be missing out on a true classic of the field.” — Dave Baxter, BrokenFrontier.com. Of his follow up work The Great Unknown, Zak Edwards of Comics Bastards wrote, “The Great Unknown #1 has probably my most favorite opening to a comic book in my recent memory, and from there an amazing protagonist. Confrontational, egotistical, wearing a freaking ‘Who is John Galt’ t-shirt, I am in love with Duncan Rouleau’s Zach Fled.” The Great Unknown is presently in development as a feature film with New Line Cinema, Rouleau and Man of Action Entertainment producing and they also served as producers on Joe Casey’s Officer Downe and Joe Kelly’s upcoming feature film, I Kill Giants.
