COMIC INDIE FEATURES
Joseph Graham (aka Joey) & Nathan Introligator (aka Mike)
Joseph Graham (aka Joey) and Nathan Introligator (aka Mike) are long time friends and almost equally long time creative collaborators from Houston, TX, who despite having very *very* different ideas and tastes, somehow maintain real zeal for that which makes them different. In 2015 they decided to use this disparity to create the absurdist-super-hero-eco-conservationist-satire MONOMANIA. Now working on their fourth issue with artist Geoff Sebesta, Mike and Joey discuss their process and hopefully don’t just argue whether or not Thanos was right.
Joey and Mike will be delivering the topic, “Develop a Process That Works For You” @ 11:30 am
