Comfort and Adam are the six-time Harvey Award nominated husband-and-wife Action Faction responsible for the critically acclaimed series The Uniques, Rainbow in the Dark, and The Complete Guide to Self-Publishing Comics (Random House). They are a 100% symbiotic duo sharing the writing, pencilling, and coloring duties equally. Their long awaited return to their first series, The Uniques, has begun with the release of Vol. 1, with Vol. 2 soon on its heels. Not only that, but in 2016,  they released their first weekly webcomic, Kitty Game, with artist Corinne Roberts.

Before becoming full time self-published comic creators in 2008 they worked in the world of RPG artwork for companies such as Palladium and Green Ronin. Comfort and Adam have also done work for Image’s Mice Templar, and IDW’s The Dreamer. The duo live in Grand Rapids, Michigan, with their two assistants and six cats. Comfort and Adam can frequently be seen walking up and down the road talking about stories before sequestering themselves away to draw for their customary twelve hours a day. They also do regular drawing demonstrations on Twitch which you can find here.
