About the Author
John Porcellino was born in Chicago, in 1968, and has been writing, drawing, and publishing minicomics, comics, and graphic novels for over twenty-five years. His celebrated self-published series King-Cat Comics, begun in 1989, has inspired a generation of cartoonists. Diary of a Mosquito Abatement Man, a collection of King-Cat stories about Porcellino's experiences as a pest control worker, won an Ignatz Award in 2005, and Perfect Example, first published in 2000, chronicles his struggles with depression as a teenager. King-Cat Classix, published in 2007, is a comprehensive overview of the zine's first fifty issues, and his most recent book, Thoreau at Walden, is a poetic expression of the great philosopher's experience and ideals. According to cartoonist Chris Ware, John Porcellino's comics distill, in just a few lines and words, the feeling of simply being alive. Porcellino's work has been translated into French, German, Spanish, Swedish, Italian, and Korean. He currently lives in Denver with his wife Misun, and two Skweezil-Cats named Liz and Charlie.
