portrait of Jon Macy

Jon Macy began his comics career with the series Tropo and Nefarismo, both part of the black-and-white alternative comics boom of the 1990s. He contributed to queer comics anthologies Meatmen, Gay Comics, Qu33r and No Straight Lines, as well as gay erotic magazines such as Steam, Bunkhouse, and International Leatherman. His book Teleny and Camille, a graphic novel adaptation of the classic anonymous erotic novel attributed to Oscar Wilde and his circle of friends, won the 2010 Lambda Literary Award for Gay Erotica. His most recent work is Fearful Hunter, an erotic fantasy created as an act of protest against California’s Proposition 8, which won the 2010 Prism Comics Queer Press Grant. He lives in the San Francisco Bay Area.
