Troy-Jeffrey Allen
Fanboys are like @$$holes. Er...that means they go well with opinions. And the Menagerie of Kick-Assery podcast/blogcast is no different.
Hosted by That_Urban_Punk (Android Massacre), Derek Scarzilla (Action A Go Go), Troy-Jeffrey Allen (Bamn, District Comics), and producer Gene Green,  "The Menagerie" invites internet personalities, the contemporary denizens of geek, indie comic creators, ne'erdowells, and soandsos to dissect our beloved geek culture...with a dash of saltiness.
We are M.O.K.A...and now so are you

Dan Anderson
All for a Punchline is the web comic, company, and passion of
young artist Dan Anderson. He produces it by going to improv shows and taking
pictures. He then sorts through the photos, picks one or two that he likes and
then puts them into Adobe Illustrator to hand trace them with a pen and tablet
adding any props and costumes that he sees fit.

Leslie and Jarod Anderson
Leslie and Jarod Anderson (no relation) live in Ohio. Leslie has a MA in poetry, an obsession with ponies, and a deep love of pretty hats. Jarod has a MA in literature, a steadily worsening tattoo addiction, and a comprehensive knowledge of snake care (not a euphemism).

Shawn Atkins
Shawn Atkins was born and raised in Ohio. Moved to Pittsburgh, where he draws
comics and goes on adventures with his lovely wife and daughter, Amelia. Some of the comics includes Gello
Apocalypse and Explorers of the Unknown and Memory.

Jono Balliett
I make minicomics & webcomics. I've exhibited at KRC, SPX, & a few
other small shows. Minicomics are great & I enjoy making them!

Suzanne Baumann
Suzanne  likes to make things. She’s been publishing
minicomics under the name Fridge Magnet Concoctions since 1995. Before that, when she was a kid, she made her comics public by sticking them on the refrigerator with a magnet. Hence the name.
She lives in Hamtramck, Michigan, which is located in Detroit and is a city apart. She is partially responsible for the awesomeness that is
Hatch: A Hamtramck Art Collective.
She also works at a full-time job which is unrelated to anything about comics.

 Heidi Black and Becca Hillburn
Heidi Black and Becca Hillburn are part of the comic collective
Rascals, Rogues and Dames. They believe in comics by women, and for everyone.

Pam Bliss
Pam Bliss has been making minicomics since 1989 and she hasn't
stopped yet. Most of her comics are set in Kekionga, the small town in Indiana
where anything can happen, and feature an eclectic cross section of its
residents. Hijinks occur, and the comics sometimes get philosophical as well.
Learn more about minicomics and how to make them, and read some Kekionga stories
on line, at
When she isn't drawing and making up stories, Pam enjoys photography, reading
other people's stories, learning weird facts, and playing with her Welsh corgi dogs.

Lee Bradford
Cannibal Coalition is a small collection of friends, hailing from
different states, who all do something creative. We bounce ideas off of each other
and one of us will eventually get those things down on paper. In addition to comic
books, the Cannibal Coalition also does short stories, jewelry, and one of them
even went the extra mile and made her own Tarot deck. Lee will be offering tarot
readings as well as selling art. Keep a look-out for us!
