The Author

James Hohenstein makes comics. Lots of comics, hence the existence of this very site. He’s been doing it for quite a good while; as far back as he can remember should suffice to explain how long.

In the winter of 2012, he graduated from Bethany Lutheran College with BFA in Studio Art. While there, he also studied Literature, Media Arts, and Theater. He dreams of being a storyboard artist for an animation studio, but will be making graphic novels as long as he draws breath.

He hopes you enjoy his comics.
