About me

Gender MALE
Occupation Writer
Location United Kingdom
Introduction I’m a full-time comics creator who has worked for all sorts of different publications all over the world. For the British newsstand kid’s comic ‘Toxic’, I created the strips ‘Rex!’ and ‘Robin Hoodie’. On the internet I wrote for Hunt Emerson's ‘Ardnox High’ strip. I’ve had stories in Fantagraphics and Rip Off Comix anthologies in America. I’ve had strips in ‘Soft Secrets’ and ‘Wasted’. I’ve written for ‘Artx’ and ‘Men Only’. But in comics fandom I’m best known as the self-publisher of the small press titles ‘Octobriana’ (which won the award for Best New British Comic that year), ‘Armageddon Patrol’ and ‘Loxley’. I'm currently writing 'Ms. Fortune' for Britain's 'Mayfair Magazine'. johnashort@hotmail.com
