Taken during interview for Comic Interview Magazine 39.

A Sheridan College Graduate this Toronto based cartoonist developed a school concept into the story “Avalone in 1984. In 1987 he worked as illustrator on Alpha Flight for Marvel Comics and has become a regular artist for both DC and Marvel comics.

According to Dave Darrigo Aliens Xenogenesis was Dave’s best work done in U.S. comics while Powerline was his worst. (Darrigo thought Ross would agree.) For Aliens, Dave got to pick his own inker and he liked the colouring job. He was very critical of colouring.
