Publishing History

Yes, self-published (Web or Print)

 

Influences & Inspirations

Underground comics from the 1970's to present times. Mini comics and zines. Comic companies like Fantagraphics Books, Last Gasp, Drawn and Quarterly and Koyama Press.

 

What are you currently working on?

Always working on a new Intruder paper and events surrounding their releases. Our 15th issue in three years will be released in April to debut at a comic fest in Portland Oregon. 

Personally attempting to finish two separate comics about a man figuring out the Hell he is living in and then a collaborative homage to action movies. Meanwhile releasing prints and mini comics.

 

Why should people vote for you?

Intruder comics is an inspiring & important outlet for local talent, upcoming or established. Reaching our audience is important to our co-operation.

Intruder comics newspaper is a free publication that is paid for by the contributors. Each contributor pays a portion of the printing cost and then receive a quantity of papers to do what they like with. The rest of the print run is distributed via subscriptions, comic conventions and through local businesses, comic shops in Seattle as well as other east and west coast outlets. We publish these about 4-5 times a year and we put on release parties and events with local sponsors at galleries, comic shops and other spaces related to our interests. 

Any support we get would go into distributing more copies to more places in the country as well as increasing our marketing with promotional items.
