Russ Busse


Russ Busse (he/him) is a freelance editor and writer. He has worked primarily on entertainment titles and licensed programs, as well as graphic novels and picture books. He has edited licensed books for Marvel, Lucasfilm, Warner Bros., Hasbro, and more, working with bestselling authors such as Barry Lyga and Gina McIntyre, and with warm and funny picture books, behind-the-scenes nonfiction for movie fans, and original middle-grade fiction to come. He gravitates towards anything with a lot of heart and humor (an off-the-wall premise is a major plus), and he generally looks for genre-bending stories that bring readers in immediately, with strong characters and unique twists. His Netflix queue is always in shambles.
