They also wrote a massive how-to book for Random House called The Complete Guide to Self-Publishing Comics and the comic miniseries Kitty Game (with artist Corinne Roberts). Their work can be found on the site, where they’ve been read by millions.When they’re not working on their comics, you can find the couple as guests of comic and anime conventions from coast to coast. They are also educational and motivational speakers, educators, and still find the occasional moment for a side-gig in writing and illustration here and there.Comfort and Adam believe in the philosophy that great stories and art can be both fun and challenging, and you don’t have to choose between entertaining an audience and making them think. In their work, they always seek to do both.They live in Grand Rapids, MI with their five cats. When they’re not drawing, writing, or answering messages they can frequently be seen walking up and down the trail behind their house talking about stories. They also do regular drawing demonstrations on Twitch which you can find here.

Let’s Make a Hero
