Getting To Know Katie Cook
“I’m working on things that I love right now, which is the thing that keeps me going.”
Katie Cook is a comic artist and writer that has been in the industry for a while. She’d list just how long here but isn’t that a faux pas of admitting that she’s old? I mean you can always wikipedia her birthday if you want to get stuck on this topic. Why are we still talking about this?
She is the creator of the comic Nothing Special on LineWebtoon, an all-ages adventure about a girl, a boy with fairy wings and a dead Radish. It’s her favorite thing and you should read it. Katie also wrote and drew the webcomic Gronk: A Monster’s Story, which lost several awards but is still delightful.
Katie spend several years as one of the primary writers on IDW’s My Little Pony Friendship is Magic and has also done projects with Marvel, Boom! and more (sorry for referring to some of you publishers as “and more”). She’s also illustrated several Star Wars children’s books for Disney LucasFilm Press and created artwork for the Disney Wonderground Gallery. Artist and writer! Double threat!

I love making my comic and I’m thrilled to share it with everyone. Your pledge amount is up to you… I won’t go crazy on tiers and access, etc. You’ll have access to anything I post even with $1… but if you hit $40+ I will send you a small watercolor painting every month as a thank you …
