This comic anthology is a full color 120+ page perfect bound comic by comic creators from all around the world. Creators contribute all new original stories to the book to go with our theme of "nobodies." We want to create art because we love it. We aren't scared of the bumps and bruises (that comes with the territory). We're here to make the work we want to read. There are no restrictions and anything goes.

This anthology is used to be a platform for relatively unknown comic creators to come together and show everyone else in the industry that we aren't meant to be taken lightly and we're here to stay.

Steve Orlando has written strange comics for Poseur Ink, Image Comics, and recently a short story for Vertigo/DC Comics. His recent Octobriana was published in the Samizdat (underground Soviet-era publishing) format, and has been acquired for the NYU Russian Studies Library. He also translates Russian and recommends in-continuity wine selections for comics. He lives in Albany, with an enormous collection of folklore and linguistics books which his guests do not read. thesteveorlando.com 

Artyom Trakhanov was born in Novosibirsk, and still lives there, with his beloved wife and cat. Yes, Novosibirsk is in Russia, and in case you were wondering the Russian comics industry is messed up pretty bad—basically, it doesn’t exist. He does however run a weekly webcomic called MAD BLADE, which sadly for the time being can be read only if you know Russian. Artyom’s art in NOBODIES, Volume 2 is the first work from Artyom to be printed in the USA. blayde.org | oxothuk.deviantart.com

Sam Sharpe was born and raised in Madison, Wisconsin. He attended the Rhode Island School of Design. He loves comics entirely too much. He loves them so much that sometimes when he sees comics he wants to say something funny and charming to them, but instead his hands get all sweaty and ends up talking too loudly not being able to breath properly. He lives in Chicago. viewotron.blogspot.com

Rex Ogle is a born and raised Texan who likes to live hard, drink wine, and eat hobos. Ur... I mean, kittens. Yes, that's better. (Isn't it?) Rex has been devouring books, comic books, and sci-fi/fantasy movies since he could walk, and enjoys nothing more than creating his own stories. Rex lives and breathes in New York City these days where he edits books at Scholastic, listens to his iPod relentlessly, and talks to trees whenever he can.

Erin Kavanaugh is an anonymous dog walker in New York City, which gives her lots of time to spy on people and think about drawing them. Her night job is her real passion though--writing and drawing comics when she isn't vegging out with the love of her life or snuggling with her cats. erinkavngh.deviantart.com
