Indy PopCon is back for year two, and we’re excited — this particular convention includes comic book artists (including an all-female discussion panel called “Men in Comics” — a direct response to Denver Comic Con’s all-male “Women in Comics” panel held this past spring).
We here at NUVO thought we’d pay homage to our LOCAL comic artists — and just like any good superhero, they’ve got origin stories. Four Indiana-based comic artists tell us how they started drawing — in the way only they can tell the story.
Jackie Crofts — well, her bio’s included in the top panel of the strip. Hooray!
Trent Fairbrother is a local (Carmel, IN) artist who aspires to do comic book covers for Marvel and/or DC comics. He enjoys long walks on the beach, comics, and saving the world from boredom one drawing at a time. His comic was written by his kids: Rowan Fairbrother, who’s four years old, and Elise Fairbrother, six years old.
Bri Rudd is the creator of the webcomic Oh No Bri, and a contributor for nerdy websites Geeking in Indiana and Panels. She is trying not to put a weird, meta joke in this bio but it's a struggle.
