Dr. Bruce Kessler, author of Operation Comics, is a mathematics professor at Western Kentucky University, with 24 years experience in the classroom with students of all ages, and is Head of the Department of Mathematics in the WKU Ogden College of Science & Engineering. During Spring 2006 he wrote and hosted a series of television shows, "Math Matters: Why Do I Need To Know This?", that appeared on internal WKU cable. In April 2013, he was granted his first patent, on some of the mathematics at-work behind the software package Peaklet Analysis.
“As a child, I was a fan of comic books,” Kessler said, “so the Operation Comics series has been a labor of love.”
