Jesse Baggs, Warrior Poet and Cat Lover

A mild-mannered teacher by day, Jesse Baggs draws silly pictures and posts them on the Internet at night. His strip Children Who Toil won the CWA Newsletter Contest for Best Original Comic, and Nude Magazine said his work is “well-crafted and imaginative […] Jesse Baggs is a sensitive soul.” His comic Is Punk Dead? was excerpted in rock-critic Ian Shirley’s Can Rock and Roll Save the World? and reviewed by an Australian teenager for a school project.

Jesse Baggs currently lives in Sacramento, CA with his wife, their cat, a fish, two dogs and whatever other strays they've taken in or animals they happen to be pet-sitting at the moment. He recently self-published the first issue of his anthology comic, HardPressed, and is now hard at work on the second issue.
