Brad Guigar

Brad Guigar will celebrate 15 years of creating daily comic strips this year.

“Evil Inc” (http://www.evil-inc.com) runs Monday-through-Saturday on the Web, and it also appears in front of nearly 100,000 newspaper readers every weekday. Evil Inc is a corporation that is run by super-villains by super-villains. The CEO (Chief Evil Operator) is Evil Atom, a Silver-Age bad guy who discovered that he could do more evil if he did it “legally.”

Guigar is considered by many to be a webcomics pioneer, having self-published his daily strips and other comics on the Web since February 2000. He has been nominated for the highest honor in comics — the Eisner award — for “Phables,” a year-and-a-half-long weekly series of comics about life in Philadelphia, and he does a weekly single-panel comic, “Courting Disaster,” about sex, love and relationships.

He is the author of “The Everything Cartooning Book,” and the co-author of “How To Make Webcomics.” His newest book, “The Webcomics Handbook” was released in 2014, and is one of the top Arts Business books on Amazon.com.

He is the editor-in-chief of the daily tutorial-and-advice site, Webcomics.com, and he co-hosts a regularly posted podcast about comics on the Web called Webcomics Weekly, which is available at http://ww.libsyn.com/.

He is a gifted speaker, having given rousing presentations on topics ranging from comics-on-the-Web to general creativity. He has been a featured panelist at comic conventions and trade shows, and he offered his thoughts on independent Web publishing at Harvard University. And earlier this summer, he premiered his stand-up comedy at Philadelphia’s Helium Comedy Club. Guigar.com offers samples from these appearances.

Brad lives in Philadelphia with his wife, Caroline, and two boys.
