With WHATZIT, his first graphic novel, Gideon is returning to his roots. Growing up he was a huge fan of Marvel Comics, Mad Magazine, Heavy Metal (the magazine) and Zap Comix. WHATZIT is in many ways a tribute to these influences.
Gideon lives in Brooklyn with his wife Julie Peppito and their son Milo.
