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.

Shirtlifter #1 by: Steve MacIsaac $3.99
Winner of Prism Comics first annual Queer Press Grant, Shirtlifter is a series of queer-themed short fiction comics from STICKY artist Steve MacIsaac.
This first issue features the self-contained story “Unmade Beds.” Set amidst the gay expatriate culture of Tokyo, the comic is a quiet and lyrical examination of cross-cultural adjustment and sexual parity.
This new edition features re-inked, and in some cases redrawn, artwork and 8 pages of bonus material including alternate pages, sketches, and a feature on the evolution of a comics panel from inspiration to completion.
Fearful Hunter #4 by: Jon Macy $4.99
From the author of the Lambda Literary Award winning Teleny and Camille comes the fourth and final installment in a tale about young lovers in a queer Celtic fantasy world. Werewolf Byron races to be reunited with Druid Oisin before malevolent forces control the gods themselves!
Fearful Hunter was the recipient of the 2010 Prism Comics Queer Press Grant.
“Like Teleny and Camille, we once again see his beautiful black-and-white art, but now he has proven his talent as an original writer, as well. It’s a rare gift that a natural storyteller has skill with both words and images, but Macy does.” — Steven Surman, Broken Frontier
