Carlo loved to put lines together as a kid. He discovered that this was called "drawing." He drew and drew and drew, making comics in old notebooks.
He later realized that he had some writing skill as well, which he put to good use by penning high school book reports of novels that don't exist. His only claim to serious writing fame was winning a university literary award for poetry.
After an attempt to create a comics series after college, he took to the corporate world doing public relations work, and at the same time tried his hand in theater acting. But he wanted to make comics so much. So in 2001, he self-published One Night In Purgatory, a short, slightly melodramatic tale about… well… two guys in love.
The following year, he turned to superhero comedy with The Spectacular Adventures of Zsazsa Zaturnnah, (title translated from Filipino). It's about a gay beautician who becomes a superhero. That graphic novel won a National Book Award from the Manila Critics [More...]

Yves Navant is a writer and artist based in Denver, Colorado.
Born and raised in the United States, Yves is the 13th and youngest of a European family.
Coming of age in the night time, pop culture warzone of late 20th Century America, Yves honed his craft while falling in love, destroying things, breaking hearts and drawing beautiful women, handsome men, gods and monsters.
Against all odds, Yves survived a dangerous and cinematic adolescence before embracing academics.
Leaving behind a fledgling music career with his band Divine Reich (material available on iTunes and Amazon.com), well-intended promiscuity and a fondness for extreme behavior, Yves enrolled in a private art college, and as testimony to his characteristic intensity and ambition, completed an entire Bachelors of Fine Art program in just over two years, graduating Magna Cum Laude.
Yves' advertising and editorial illustration work has appeared regularly in various periodicals, including Out Front Magazine.

I am a 28 year old MTF transsexual at the beginning of my transition and have a BA in English from Humboldt State University. Though I am looking to be a teacher, my passion is in writing. Why didn't I just get a degree in Creative Writing? I thought the teacher track would be more realistic. The fact that I am without a credential and working part-tme at a family-owned business makes me wonder about the logic of that thought.
Why am I posting my bio on here, amongst distinguished comics creators? Well, a while ago I created a webcomic called Comfortably Numb, inspired by Venus Envy. Sure, it's a debacle and I know conclusively from it that I should not draw, but I still have a desire to return. Since that comic, I have focused on writing superhero comics.
My superheroes are something I've labored over for years, developing the characters since at least fifth grade. They've definitely evolved since, many changing their names and attributes, and I have a vested interest in them. [More...]
