Thankful for Andy “Shaggy” Korty!

ECL’s thankfulness for our creators continues with an individual so central to everything we do that we would fall apart without him: Andy “Shaggy” Korty!

What DOESN’T Andy do?  Andy was here before nearly all of us, recruited for his knowledge of indy comics.  For years now, Andy has self-published The Manor, a kooky, creepy, hilarious comic that makes horror fun!  He’s inked so many of our stories that we’ve lost count, he was the penciler and inker for the entirety of Cemetery Plots #1.5, he has drawn more strips in Josh Gillam’s Cynical Stew than any other artist, AND he lays out every ECL comic to prepare for the printer!

He does it ALL!

Not only is Andy one of our most hard-working creators behind the scenes, but he maintains an outrageous convention schedule every year, spreading the ECL word to comic fans far and wide!

We would be nowhere without Andy.  A simple “thank you” doesn’t nearly convey our gratitude.

Here are some links to Andy’s work:
