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. “I enter most social situations with the calmness of a hunted gazelle” is the realest thing I’ve ever read.

  2. I’m seriously starting to suspect that you actually base Scout on my life.

  3. Wow! yup! So definitely been telling myself “you just gotta be cool, calm and confident” a lot lately, and then reacting to that like Scout does! What is confidence anyway?

  4. Last week I thought, for a moment, that I had seen my ex pass me by on a bike. I was mistaken.
    Still, derailed for an entire day.
