My name is Gabriel Valentin and when it comes to comics, music and video games, I am a hopeless romantic. I’m talking rose petals on the bed, champagne in the ice bucket and of course a little bit of mood lighting before I stock up on potions and head into the next dungeon. My deepest passions have forever been music and storytelling. I’ve spent over a decade touring, working with writers and assisting music producers in their recording sessions. In 2014 I decided to unite my loves of music and storytelling together, to create the live art show known as Digital Lizards Of Doom. It has and always will be a love letter to the sci-fi/fantasy genre. At every D.L.O.D. performance we feature silly songs that build upon the world of the two main characters, a heroic lizard named Dizzy Doom and an evil robot named Commander E.K.O. Within the first year of D.L.O.D.’s conception, I had completed three national tours, was showcased on six different cable networks, secured a record deal with Noize Cartel Records and was asked to create a pop culture YouTube series for Meltdown Comics and Collectibles, a noted Hollywood comic store. Having the chance to work with Meltdown only added fuel to my passion for the arts and gave me the ingredients needed to feed my hunger for all things nerdy. I have helped develop entertainment for channels like Nerdist, SYFY, SPIKE TV, Warner Bros and Nintendo. With all of the relationships that I had made in the entertainment industry, I knew it was time to bring the story of Dizzy Doom and Commander E.K.O. in a permanent, physical form and add another chapter to this incredibly sappy love letter that goes by the name of Digital Lizards Of Doom. I developed my D.L.O.D. saga into an eight book graphic novel series and shortly after, it was picked up and signed to Clover Press. The new publishing company by Ted Adams and Robbie Robbins, the founders of IDW Publishing. Volume one of the series which is titled, Digital Lizards of Doom, Level One: Dizzy Doom, is now avaible in comic book stores everywhere and managed to reach 2,000 pre-orders in a single month. I am available for live acoustic performances, public speaking, on the matters of comic books, pop-culture and music.
