About

Officially founded in 2016, Arledge Comics started as an umbrella imprint to house Jenn’s numerous titles – ALEX PRIEST, BLACK GOLD, THE MARTYRS, and more. Since it’s inception, Arledge Comics has become the home of a number of anthologies, – including TRIAL RUN and MY KINGDOM FOR A PANEL – co-produced titles (FUTURE GIRL) and submitted works (THE GREAT WITCH ARTEMIS). Our mission is to create queer friendly comics for the whole family to enjoy – like Play-Doh, we’re fun for ages 2 – 99.

Jenn Arledge | Founder | They/Them

Jenn Arledge is a comic writer and founder of Arledge Comics. Jenn’s credits span from the award-winning ALEX PRIEST series to all-ages titles like FUTURE GIRL (Pixabits) and historical adventures like BLACK GOLD.  They graduated from Central Washington University with degrees in English – focusing in British literature – and in philosophy – specializing in religious studies and focusing in pre-Christian literature. When they’re not reading or creating comic books, Jenn can be found at your local comic book convention talking about indie press and queer representation in comics.

Natalie Cooper | Editor-in-Chief | She/Her

Natalie “Nat” Cooper – editor of the award-winning series, ALEX PRIEST. (And BLACK GOLD and AVIE’S STORIES – and all Jenn’s bad ideas, too.) Editor only because people don’t recognize ‘Herculean Muse’ as an actual job title. When she’s not reading scripts – both comic and television – Nat spends her days catching them all as a real-life Pokemon master.

Sharron Arledge | Chief Administrative Officer | She/Her

Sharron Arledge attended the University of Washington studying social work. Now, she is a mental health advocate by day and a comic slinger by night. Sharron’s been working behind the scenes at Arledge Comics and was officially hired on as Jenn’s executive assistant Summer of 2018. When she’s not attending conventions or working, she enjoys heeding her call of duty and slaying zombies.

Zach Sherwood | Director of Operations | He/Him

Sometimes known as the assistant to the assistant: This distant descendant of Robin Hood has brought some much needed organization to the Arledge Comics chaos. Fulfilling Kickstarters is hard work, but Zach handles the mess with ease. 

Scott Malin | Principle Artist | He/Him

Scott Malin – artist of the award winning ALEX PRIEST series – may be fresh on the scene, but he’s been drawing since he first gripped a pencil. His style is a unique and flavorful take on manga, that he’s spent years honing, putting in countless hours to get to where he is today.

Kayla Moore | Content Writer | She/Her

Kayla Moore, otherwise known on the internet as, Kayla (big plot twist right there) hails from the hottest depths of the United States known to man as Arizona. She has spent over half her life writing novels and contributing to various blogs from AbsolutePunk, Oh No They Didn’t, to founding her own (now defunct) music journal, WeDon’tBuyYourMerch. When she isn’t lurking the internet, Moore can be found plotting and scripting her comic and novel, developing characters, or hoarding all the sweets in existence.

Chase LeFors | Graphic Designer | He/Him

Chase LeFors has pushed the boundaries of artistry and design since he was a small child. Having few influences as a child, LeFors challenged himself to design bigger and better things than were featured on the LEGO boxes he’d receive from family and friends. That passion stayed with him into adulthood, leading LeFors to pursue a career in graphic design. His work is eye catching and imaginative. In the future, LeFors dreams of opening a studio – showcasing his passions through his original work. An active community member, LeFors spends his free time working on local creative projects and training for community soccer games.
