About

I'm Nick Marino. I create comics.

I primarily write them, but I also letter my own comics and I've drawn a few of them too. I'm married to Rosie Knight, an incredible storyteller and journalist. We met in a comic shop, it was pretty rad.

Rosie and I shared writing duties on Cougar and Cub, a 2017 miniseries we created with artist Daniel Arruda Massa. Before that, Daniel and I made a couple of outrageous comics called Holy F*ck and Holy F*cked.

The new stories I'm working on include a graphic novel about underwater koalas made with Nils-Petter Norlin, a webcomic about unintentional supervillains also made with Nils, and a solo comic about a lazer bird for the upcoming BUN&TEA anthology.

Over the past decade, I've produced webcomics and minicomics including Stick Cats, Super Haters, Time Log, and Get Stuffed. Most of those stories are available for free here on my site as PDFs, along with many of my other comics and zines.

I live in Long Beach, California. Before that it was Pittsburgh, and before that it was a ton of other American cities. I've been around.

If you want to contact me, I need to ask... are you sure you've got the right Nick Marino? There are lots of us out there, you'd be surprised. I'm the one who makes comics. If that's the one you want, email me at nickmarino@gmail.com.
