Bio: From creating his own comic strips in third grade to running one of the largest retail comic book and science fiction retail operations in the country (at the time...) Tony Shenton has a proven long-term interest in the success of the industry. Now working for nearly three dozen small presses and self-publishers, he tries to communicate his love of creator-controlled comics to retailers, thereby persuading them to carry the publications and authors he reps.
He has worked for gay creators and gay-themed comics, and publishers of gay/lesbian/trans/bi comics including Palliard Press (Tim Barela), A Fine Line (Donna Barr's Desert Peach), NBM (Fairy Tales of Oscar Wilde by P. Craig Russell), and others. By the time you read this, he may also rep many others.
In private life, the ursine-feline cub likes cigars, firearms, choral music singing and composition, leather, uniforms, and fireworks (the louder, the better.)
