Born in 1974 in Toms River, New Jersey, Ryan Foley's obsession with comic books began during his childhood with trips to the grocery store with his mother where he was first introduced to characters such as Spider-Man and Batman. In 2004, Ryan achieved a lifelong goal when his first comic book was published. When not writing comics, Ryan enjoys all kinds of movies, especially fantasy and sci-fi films such as Star Wars and The Lord of the Rings.
"Ryan's well crafted words convey the saga of divine succession
powerfully and effectively. His selection and use of source
material is brilliant and his own creative spin greatly adds to the
enjoyment of the account. The unique personalities and motivations
of Ouranos, Gaea, Cronus and Zeus move the story forward and
greatly invest you in the outcome. Although the ending isn't
exactly a surprise, if you're familiar enough with ancient
Near-Eastern variants of the tale, it nonetheless took me totally
by surprise when I finally arrived there. Very well done Ryan!
