Mirror Comics Studios is a Canadian graphic novel making project presenting the work of Ottawa based principal Dominic Bercier, writer-artist-creator of Treadwell, Ghost King [A Book of Changes] and the 24 Hour graphic novella Like Never Before & Like Never Again.

Bercier is also artist-collaborator on The Bird Caller, Mission Arizona and Hold My Hand [A Father and Son Book], the pre-production comic for the Sony Pictures film Defendor and the prequel comic to the film Eddie [The Sleepwalking Cannibal].

A good student, a competitive hockey player, an Eagle Scout patrol leader and a precocious artist, the young Dominic was recognised early on for his ability to draw, and to lead, being published in grade school and winning many awards including his high school’s highest distinction for the visual arts as well the De La Salle Artistic Excellence Award upon graduating, the school’s highest honour.

In college, he was a finalist in the YTV Achievement Awards, received an honourable mention in the OCAD Entry Scholarships and worked as an assistant penciller to three different comic book artists on projects for Image, Dark Horse, Top Cow, Awesome, CHAOS! and more…

After art school, Bercier worked as an illustrator-designer and developed comics and graphic novels on his own time. His first published professional solo work was Ghost King [A Book of Changes] through his own imprint, Mirror Comics, where he was president and publisher from 2010 to 2015.

His last book at Mirror Comics was Treadwell, which garnered him two prize nominations. First a nomination in the 2O15 Aurora Awards for Best Graphic Novel. Treadwell was ALSO nominated in the 2O15 Joe Shuster Awards presented Gene Day Award for Best Self-Published Comic Book or Graphic Novel.

Mirror Comics the publisher was shut down in March 2015 in order to allow Bercier the time to develop a space opera he originally imagined over 25 years ago. Mirror Comics Studios, founded by Bercier in June 2015, gives him the framework to do just that.

Landing somewhere between artistic indie comics and the superhero mainstream, Dominic Bercier’s works are recognised for their detail, depth and richness, his stories celebrating an ability to share complex ideas in a simple manner, often tipping his hat to shamanism and the unconscious.
