Christopher Sequeira is an Australian writer.
Christopher Sequeira is a Sydney-based Australian editor, writer (and occasional artist) who works predominantly in the speculative fiction (horror, fantasy, science fiction, super-hero) and mystery realms. His published work includes song lyrics, poetry, prose (especially short fiction), and comic-book scripts, and in the editing space he has especial experience on anthologies of fiction and comic-books. He works on original material / concepts / characters, as well as on public domain or licensed franchise concepts.
He is particularly regarded as a subject matter expert on all things involving Sherlock Holmes and Victoriana, having scribed many articles and fictional pieces around this area of interest over the years. His paper on Holmes and Jack the Ripper garnered the praise of Leslie S. Klinger, one of the world's foremost Sherlockians, who cited it as 'brilliant' in his Sherlock Holmes Reference Library series.
Sequeira's creator-owned work includes "Sherlock Holmes: Dark Detective" (with co-creators Dave Elsey and Philip Cornell), "Pulse of Darkness", "Rattlebone: The Pulp-Faced Detective" and "The Borderlander".
For Frew Publications he has leveraged his detailed knowledge of the late 1800's as he has written the on-going serial "Phantom By Gaslight" featuring a host of literary and historical figures and geographical landmarks.
He completely re-thought the core concepts and also came up with some artistic design notes for a revival of Frew's 1950's space-hero "Planetman", and the first adventure of the revival of that series has been released in issue #5 of "Giantsize Phantom" in May 2018. Massimo Gamberi is Sequeira's collaborator on this piece.
