Stephen Platt was born on April Fool's day in Manchester, England. His family traveled between Canada and England extensively until the age of seven when his parents divorced. His mother, along with he, and his older sister immigrated to Canada, making their permanent home in Toronto. Instead of attending a regular high school, Stephen was accepted into The Etobicoke School of the Arts, the first of its kind in the country. While enrolled at E.S.A. Stephen studied acting, musical theatre and set design as well as completing projects for his visual arts major. Upon graduating, he attended Ontario college of Art and Design, as a illustration and graphic design major. After 2 1/2 years of study, he found work with Marvel Comics drawing a Moon Knight short story that has never seen print. He then moved on to the Moon Knight regular series where his debut received a tremendous reaction from fans and retailers alike.
In the midst of his sudden burst of popularity, Stephen was contacted By Extreme Studios where he subsequently worked on such titles as Prophet, Chapel, and other various projects. Later, Stephen joined forces with Awesome Entertainment, Jeph Loeb, and Jim Starlin to re-invigorate Jack Kirby's Fighting American. However, with Awesome having suffered a massive financial setback, Stephen was released from his contract, along with several other artists. Regrettably, due to this situation The Fighting American was not completed.
After some time away from comics Stephen found himself reunited with Marvel, collaborating with super- star writer Joe Casey on what eventually came to be known as Wolverine/Cable: Guts and Glory. During his brief tenure at Marvel, Stephen began working with longtime friend and former studio-mate, Christian Lichtner on a "secret project". After a lengthy development process, Soul Saga materialized. Ultimately, Soul Saga found it's home with image founder Marc Silvestri's Top Cow Productions, publishers of such mega - hits as Darkness, Witchblade, and Fathom. Soul Saga is Stephen Platt's first creator-owned title.
