Dave Lapham - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: "Dave Lapham (born June 24, 1952 in Melrose, Massachusetts), is a former professional football offensive lineman for the National Football League's Cincinnati Bengals from 1974 to 1983 and the United States Football League's New Jersey Generals (1984). During his career, he played all five line positions and was a key player on the 1981 Bengals squad that won the AFC championship, but ultimately lost Super Bowl XVI to the San Francisco 49ers. He wore uniform #62.
His nephew, Richard Lapham, also an offensive lineman, earned first-team accolades as a high schooler at Souhegan High School in Amherst, New Hampshire in 2005 and played with Boston College."
He started his career in 1990 as a penciller at Valiant Comics where he was discovered by editor Jim Shooter. He went on to join Shooter at Defiant Comics where they co-created Warriors of Plasm in 1993.
In 1995 he set up his own publisher El Capitan Books to publish Stray Bullets which he wrote, drew and lettered himself. By the end of that year Miramax had hired Lapham to write and direct a feature film. It is unclear what came of this contract as no movie has yet been produced.
