Bio: Paige Braddock knew at the age of 7 that she wanted to be a cartoonist. Early in her career she worked as an illustrator for several newspapers, including The Chicago Tribune and The Atlanta Constitution. In 1991, she began crafting her long-standing comic, "Jane's World," the first gay-themed work to receive online distribution by a national media syndicate. She launched her own publishing company, Girl Twirl Comics, in 2001 to make the strip available in comic shops and bookstores. In 2006, "Jane's World" received an Eisner Award nomination for best humor book. Now distributed by Universal Press Syndicate, daily installments of "Jane's World" appear on GoComics.com. There are currently 10 volumes of "Jane's World" in print.

Paige also co-created the graphic novel series The Martian Confederacy with writer Jason McNamara. Paige's other comic features include "Stinky Cecil" and "Rabbit Stew."

By day she is the Creative Director at Charles M. Schulz Creative Associates. She has illustrated several Peanuts-themed children's books, including a pop-up book released by Simon and Schuster, and several books featuring the Peanuts characters published by Running Press.

QUEER NERD WRAP-UP OF SD COMIC-CON 2012! ANDY GETS INKPOT! PRISM PRESENTS NORTHSTAR PANEL! AND MORE!
[News, Posted 7/16/12]
Another Comic-Con comes to an end! It goes by in a rush, with me feeling like a salmon swimming upstream. Sometimes I’m able to stand still long enough to Twitter and other times I'm sweating, desperately running from one side of the convention center to another. This time, so much was going on that I couldn't catch it all, so apologies if I don't have any pictures of your appearance/signing/panel/party. It's a testament to the increasing visibility and interest in LGBTQI comics and…

[News, Posted 7/12/12]
Back at Comic-Con! And gayer than ever. With Alan Scott, Northstar, Tom Cruise, I mean, it’s been a really queer year. Got here on Wednesday, before the Con was open. Had heard that a fan had died the day before. It was a Twilight fan, but that does not matter and I don't care what some bitchy people have said. It was very sad. Inside the hall, it was lots of hydraulics and forklifts and sweaty nerdfolk setting up their booths. Here's a behind the scenes pic--very rare and CON…
