I'm a cartoonist living in Minneapolis. Co-Author and artist of A Quick And Easy Guide To They/Them Pronouns. Author of Grease Bats, coming out Fall 2019 with Boom! Studios! If I'm not working I'm socializing. If I'm not out with friends I'm drawing. If I'm not doing any of those things I'm probably depressed. Support me using Patreon.

Archie has written 117 articles for us.


  1. This is very timely. I went to an event last Sunday(at Cuties coffee) that was called Queer Enough(there another one in two weeks). It was for those who are newly out or are out and didn’t feel queer enough. Very good event and I felt queer enough there. As always love your work Archie.

  2. sometimes I check Autostraddle on a Saturday morning like, “oooh it’s a Grease Bats weekend,” and sometimes the thumbnail panels climb through my window into my bedroom to call me the fuck out, and, sometimes, the comic reads ME

  3. Imposter syndrome for everybody! It’s like an Oprah give-away.

    Real talk tho most of my young queer stories are of me being a LITERAL child angsting over my bisexuality making me a fake or straight up traitor and I wish I could time travel give little me this comic ’cause I can’t pack the whole AS experience into the pocket of my wranglers.
