Who are you?



I’m Kate, that’s who!


I live in Halifax, Nova Scotia. I am a comic writer and artist who occasionally works for what’s been voted several times as the best comic shop in the world, Strange Adventures.


What I do: I am the series writer of the Bravest Warriors comic, as well as the NYT Bestselling Adventure Time: Seeing Red and the upcoming Adventure Time: Bitter Sweets (Nov 5, 2014). I wrote a Fraggle Rock miniseries and am currently writing Edward Scissorhands. I collaborate with the podcast Welcome to Night Vale. I run a group online for girls who work in comic shops. I do a biweekly podcast called Less Than Live with Kate or Die, which I think is pretty fun, and is all about comics. I travel excessively, which is part of why this comic rarely updates. I contribute Kate or Die strips to ComicsAlliance every other Monday, though!


I am self-taught in comics and have been making them since late 2010. I use Micron and Faber-Castell pens as well as a Pentel brush pen and Touch markers. I’m a fan of Canson Bristol paper and cheap, cheap watercolours. I colour digitally with a Monoprice 9x12 tablet, and I recommend it to everyone. I like to make lip-synch videos and edit things together to music. I dropped out of art school and look at me now, mom!
