Our Team


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. 

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.

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.

Diane Rockell | Flatter | She/Her

Diane Rockell is a bisexual queer lady originally hailing from Ipswich, England, but now resides in the beautiful city of Portland, Oregon. She likes to create stories that speak from the heart. When not holed up in her local coffee shop writing and inhaling chai lattes, Diane spends most of her time helping her friends table at conventions, devouring tasty bagels, and sipping whiskey on the patio.
