Mike Barry is a writer, illustrator, colorist, letterer, designer, and creator of Action Tank. He lives in North Balgowlah, Australia, with his two sons, both under the age of ten. His children inspired him to create his comic series. Mike said,"I wanted to make a comic I could hand to my kids, and others their age, that would respect their intelligence, tap into their sense of humor, feed their love of adventure, and help them discover some of the endless possibilities of comic-book storytelling." Contrary to popular rumors, he does not ride about on a kangaroo. He rides a bike.
