Bio: Andy Hartzell makes comics and other assorted art-related thingies in Oakland, California.
His debut graphic novel, Fox Bunny Funny, is a wordless fable of the forbidden desires, shocking violence and psychological disintegration that bubble beneath the civilized veneer of foxes and bunnies. It was published by Top Shelf Productions in Summer '07.
Andy's comics have appeared in numerous publications, including Boy Trouble and The Book of Boy Trouble, co-edited by Robert Kirby and David Kelly.
He is also a co-founder of Global Hobo Distro, a minicomics collective and distribution company. Several of his self-published works are available through the Hobo site, including his ongoing Monday, an alternative take on the Eden story.
