About

I'm Nick Marino. I write comics.

My next comic book is the Transformers: Beast Wars Annual 2022. I'm doing a 10-page tale with amazing art by Andrea Bell. It's expected to hit comic shops in mid April and you can pre-order it now.

My ongoing webcomic with artist Nils-Petter Norlin is called KUTE Crew and it's about some koalas underwater fighting squids. In 2020, Nils and I completed The Evil Life, our webcomic 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, 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 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, you'd be surprised. I'm the one who makes comics. If that's the one you want, email me at nickmarino@gmail.com.
