I'm Nick Marino. I write comics.
My latest comic book is Godzilla Rivals: Biollante vs. Destoroyah from IDW and it's out now at your comic shop. Before that I worked on the Transformers: Beast Wars Annual 2022, writing a Beast Machines campfire story called The Morphlings.
I've been honored to have my work featured on sites including Women Write About Comics, Comic Book Resources, ComicBook.com, Graphic Policy, Multiversity, Comics Alliance, A Place to Hang Your Cape, Critiquing Comics, and many more.
My ongoing webcomic with artist Nils-Petter Norlin is called KUTE Crew and it's about some koalas underwater fighting squids. Before that I was a writer on The Evil Life, a webcomic with Nils about a scruffy squad of supervillains.
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.
Over the past decade and a half, I've produced webcomics and minicomics including Stick Cats, Time Log, Get Stuffed, and lots more. 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 San Pedro, California. Before that it was Long Beach and before that it 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, even Google gets us confused. I'm the author who makes comics. If that's the one you want, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
