Michael Dalton Allred is an American comic book artist and writer most famous for his independent comics creation, Madman. His style is often compared to pop art, as well as commercial and comic art of the 1950s and 1960s.
Allred was raised as a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Upon his parents' divorce, he was raised with his father in Oregon, while his brothers and mother moved to Utah. He considers himself to be a "Mormon", though a liberal-minded one, and has stated that he still identifies with the beliefs, and considers The Book of Mormon to be a phenomenal and fascinating account.
