Indie Edge Creator of the Month: Tini Howard
Oct 01, 2018
Please tell us a bit about yourself!
My name is Tini Howard, I'm a comic writer who likes to focus on horror, comedy, and tangled relationships. I take most of my inspiration turning interesting non-fiction into fiction, and when I'm not writing I like to grow weird plants and watch documentaries.
What are your favorite projects you’ve contributed to over the past decade?
Euthanauts (Issue #1 / MAY180733) and Assassinistas (MAY180729), my two creator-owned Black Crown books, are a really special thing to me. Working with Shelly Bond is a dream come true. I'm also the first woman credited as writer on a Captain America book, which is pretty exciting. I also write Rick and Morty comics, and that's a crazy ride!
What are you currently working on?
I’m currently scripting Euthanauts for Black Mask, and I’m also doing some more work for Marvel...
What fun titles are you reading?
Currently I'm loving Christopher Sebela's work, as always — House Amok (Vol. 1 / JUL188592) from Black Crown and Crowded from Image are both killer books. I just finished My Favorite Thing is Monsters (DEC161677) and Katie Skelly's My Pretty Vampire (SEP181790), so I'm digging a lot of Fantagraphics stuff right now, too!
