Hal Jay Greene is a writer, artist, graphic designer, lousy standup comic, inventor, entrepreneur, and failed musician. His current project is the series of sci-fi comic graphic novels, “Across Space,” with artists Nelson Daniél (“Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,” “Pacific Rim,” “Detective Pikachu”) and Joel Ojeda Lopez. His graphic short story, “Backup,” was published in the May 2021 issue of “Heavy Metal” magazine.
In the 90’s, Hal built one of the first national video store chains in the US, “Super Video of NJ,” which grew to 14 stores and over $10M in sales before being bought out by West Coast Video in 2000. He holds several music-related patents (The Jewelsleeve, The Sheetminder) and is the inventor of the “Headz” line of collectible dice figurines, which was recently licensed by AMC for the “Walking Dead” franchise and distributed by Geek Fuel and WhatNot.
