Who’s Kate?


I’m Kate, that’s who!

I live in Halifax, Nova Scotia. I am a comic writer and artist who got her start working for what’s been voted several times as the best comic shop in the world, Strange Adventures.

What I do: I am the series writer of the Bravest Warriors comic, as well as the NYT Bestselling Adventure Time: Seeing Red and the regular-selling Adventure Time: Bitter Sweets. I wrote a Fraggle Rock miniseries and am currently writing Edward Scissorhands. I collaborate with the podcast Welcome to Night Vale. I run a group online for girls who work in comic shops. I do a biweekly podcast called Less Than Live with Kate or Die, which I think is pretty fun, and is all about comics. I travel excessively, which is part of why this comic rarely updates. I contribute Kate or Die strips to ComicsAlliance every other Monday, though!

I am self-taught in comics and have been making them since late 2010. I have recently gone digital with a Cintiq 13HD, but when I work traditionally I use Micron and Faber-Castell pens as well as a Pentel brush pen and Touch markers. I’m a fan of Canson Bristol paper and cheap, cheap watercolours.

Here is a list of stats:
