"Project Wildfire means a lot to me," said McGowan. "The lead character is named after my grandfather, who had me watching his favorite wrestler Tommy Rich every weekend. Faze, the main heroine in the book, is patterned after my wife. There's a lot of Orange Mound and the city Hannibal and I call home as a character in the book."
Hannibal was the winner of the 2012 Top Cow Talent Hunt, writer of New Money for Canon Comics, Waso: Will To Power for Stranger Comics, four issues of Project: Wildfire for Legends Press, three issues of Menthu for Hometown Studios and co-writer of an issue of Watson & Holmes (alongside 2 Guns writer Steven Grant) for New Paradigm Studios. In 2015, he wrote the Aspen Source books for the makers of Fathom, Soulfire and Executive Assistant Iris.
