Pete Abrams

     Artist

LibertyCon 19 Artist Guest of Honor (2006)

Pete Abrams is the creator of the highly addictive niftiness that is Sluggy Freelance, a remarkably twisted daily online comic strip that has been appearing at www.sluggy.com since August 25, 1997. Starting the comic strip as a creative outlet, his world with the switchblade-wielding rabbit quickly expanded into uncharted territory and grew into over a decade of alien vampire missile-launching fun. Since its Satan-spamming beginnings, Sluggy Freelance has attracted a devoted global following and is one of the most popular and well-known comics on the web.

Pete holds the honor of being twice-invited as a speaker at Harvard conventions as well as at a Vassar convention, making him all ivy-league-ish. Pete has gained recognition not only online, but through such high profile appearances as the original comics included in NY Times bestselling author John Ringo's Hell's Faire, and as part of the New York's Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art webcomics exhibition in Fall 2007, as well as appearances on NPR's Weekend Edition with Liane Hansen. Pete is reputed to be the first person to ever make a living by drawing a webcomic. Currently, Pete lives in New Jersey (and doesn't even mind it) with his wife Rachel, and two daughters, Leah and Sarah.
