Brother Gabriel María Martin, csj, is a member of the Brothers of Saint John, a Roman Catholic religious order. His community’s focus on theological and philosophical formation led Brother Gabriel to found Mysterius Monk Press and Mysterius Monk Comics, with the goal of bringing a higher quality of art and intellectual reflection to Catholic children’s books and comics. To this end, Brother Gabriel draws on his pre-religious experience as a writer and cartoonist for The San Diego Union-Tribune.
