Arkas is a Greek comics artist that started his work in middle 80s. He seldom appears at conventions, and generally avoids publicity and appearances on television shows or interviews, as he has been quoted as believing that the artist should be known through his work, not through personal promotion. His real name is unknown, although the Greek newspaper Kathimerini has also mentioned it as Antonis Evdemon.

Arkas in Greek means Arcadian or someone from the province of Arcadia. However, the CamelCase style in which his name is written suggests that Arkas may be only his initials. In 1997, Arkas was asked to design the logo of Thessaloniki when the city became the European City of Culture for that year. Arkas has been translated into other languages and has become known outside Greece. Translations of his books can be found in English, French, German, Romanian, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, Bulgarian, Polish and Serbian.

and aesthetically satisfying games. By being unknowable, by resulting from events which, at the sub-atomic level, cannot be fully predicted, the future remains malleable, and retains the possibility of change, the hope of coming to prevail; victory.
