Marian Runk

Marian is a Texan born, Chicago-based cartoonist who loves birds, cats, and country music. The Magic Hedge, her autobiographical comics series about birdwatching, family, reality t.v., HIV/AIDS, queer stuff, and the awkwardness of childhood, was nominated for an Ignatz Award in 2011. When she’s not at her day job (peddling birth control and promoting safer sex to the Chicagoland area), she’s probably drawing comics, playing guitar, singing in a choir, or watching birds along the shore of Lake Michigan.
