About the Author

Hello, my name is Steven Chen.  By day, I am a marketing professor at a large  business university in the West Coast. By night, I draw comics.

RVO: Return of Visual Orchestra is a passion project that started over 8 years ago. At the time of inception, many of the major bands whose music that I enjoyed went on hiatus. I did not know whether they would ever return to make music. So I posed the questions... What if they were to return? How would they do it? And that is the origination of the RVO concept.

Before academia, all I wanted to do was draw comics. I have collected comics since 1988. Like many comic nerds, I remember my first comic as if it were my first girlfriend. Uncanny X-Men #242, a double sized issue by Chris Claremont and Marc Silvestri. I was hooked. 

To have the opportunity to bring the story of RVO: Return of Visual Orchestra to life is a dream come true.
