Sarah Allen Reed

Born with a decidedly different name and assigned gender near Saint Louis, Missouri, Sarah picked up a pen at the age of eight and drew her first comic book, and despite the world’s valiant attempts to stop her that’s more or less what she’s been doing since. Her work deals with loss, trans and queer issues, her own battle with mental illness, and the psychology of trauma.

She has put out multiple books and records, been featured in several anthologies, and worked on many comix series in her career, and is the editor of the underground small press collective The Blackwork Organization. Her work can be found in multiple public and private collections, most of which are still standing.

When she’s not busy hanging out in the back of her Econoline van, drawing away at a coffee shop, messing with one of her pet Linux servers, playing her acoustic bass guitar in the moonlight, or wandering throughout the United States, she can often be found arranging flowers, cooking, working out, painting, or floating above the coast at midnight, waiting for the tide to wrap her in its loving embrace and take her away.

She currently resides in Brunswick, Maine; although, as with everything else in life, this is subject to change.
