I'm Nick Marino. I write comics.

Godzilla author Nick Marino

While I'm currently toiling away on a top secret crossover as a writer, my next work hitting shops is as a colorist on Godzilla: Monster Island Summer Camp. Out in August 2024 from IDW Publishing and Toho, it features an incredible script by my wife Rosie Knight and lush art by Oliver Ono. Handling detailed flats and more as a color assistant, I collaborated with Oliver on unique palettes and other color design for the book.

My previous work includes writing Godzilla Rivals: Biollante vs. Destoroyah for IDW, collected in Godzilla Rivals: Round Two. Before that I worked on the Transformers: Beast Wars Annual, 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.

Nick Marino and Rosie Knight

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.
