Constant Hustle Comics
We ponder the world's guidelines. We innovate ways to engage our audience. We construct stories that push the limits. We amaze. We're an independent, creative comic book studio that looks beyond the confines of the three-act storytelling walls and considers the overall design of the world and those in it. Applying many combined years of experience, our team researches and challenges the need for deeply constructed stories that others shy away from.
Every story is unique. Every act is its own. Every setting deserves to be considered for its independence but devotion to the overall story.
Not writing or creating beautiful pieces of art just for the sake of it. But testing the limits of all of our abilities while also challenging you to come along.
Whether it's Charles Simpson (left) our Art Director, Elijah Manning (right) our Branding & Marketing Director or Lawrence J. King (middle) our founder and CEO our only drive is to provide all our fans with the diversity we see in our lives every day. We want to change the face of heroes and the way their stories are told. Join us on this journey.
Hailing from Long Island, NY, Malachi Bailey has always been unabashedly a lover of books! He fell in love with the Sunday comic strips then quickly moved onto Marvel and DC Comics. Early on, he became a huge fan of the X-Men, particularly Storm! His passion for superhero stories paved the way to online superhero roleplaying where he developed his craft as a writer. The rise of superhero movies only heightened his desire to write and play in the proverbial sandbox of the two comic book titans. This would be the start of his need to write daily.
Over the course of the decade, Malachi has written short stories solo and with fellow writers on science fiction and fantasy. For nearly ten years he wrote every day. But for every day he wrote, he also read book after book. The written word was never far from his hands. He always dreamed of being an author and that day would come.
In October 2019, Malachi re-released his debut novel, HER!
