Alisa Harris is an animator who lives in Queens, New York, and makes comics about the quirks of living in the city, her crazy cats, and vegetarian cooking.
The most important things to know about Alison Wilgus are that she lives in Brooklyn, she makes comics, she has cried while watching NASA TV, and she permanently imprinted on the women of Deep Space Nine as a teenager. Everything else is gravy.
Andrea is an illustrator and cartoonist who likes (in no particular order) history, absurdity, dogs, and monsters. Born and raised in New York, she received an MFA in illustration from the School of Visual Arts. Now living in Queens, she draws and makes books in Brooklyn.
Somehow, “Samantha Peartree, age 5” has managed to remain 5 years old even after starting her own webcomic over four years ago! She’s the main character of her self-titled Samantha Comics, drawn in reality by the 27-year-old Andrew Davis. Is your inner child fascinated by fairy tales, pop culture, obsessive behavior, cruel, untimely death, and puppies? You might get along well with Samantha.
