Tony Breed is a Chicago-based cartoonist and illustrator. He grew up obsessed with Peanuts, Bloom County, and Doonesbury, and made his own comics as a kid. In college he wrote a lot of short stories, but didn’t return to comics until much later, when he created Finn and Charlie Are Hitched.

He volunteers with CHIRP Radio where he’s a DJ and member of the board of directors. During the day he manages web sites, and on the weekend he goes to the farmer’s market with his husband. He makes good pie.

His latest comic, Muddlers Beat, is a continuation of Finn and Charlie Are Hitched and can be found online at muddlersbeat.com.
