Alex Robinson

Alex Robinson (born August 8, 1969) is an American comic book writer and artist.

He grew up in Yorktown Heights, New York, and graduated from Yorktown High School in 1987. After a year spent at SUNY Brockport, he went to art school in New York City, and graduated with a BFA in cartooning in 2000. He is outspoken about what a waste of time and money art school was. Among his teachers in college were Will Eisner, Sal Amendola, Gahan Wilson, and Carmine Infantino.

In 2001 he won an Eisner Award for "Talent Deserving of Wider Recognition" for his graphic novel "Box Office Poison" which was published by Top Shelf Productions. The French translation of this book called, "De Mal En Pis", won the Prix Du Premier Album at Angoulême International Comics Festival in 2005.

Alex's second graphic novel, "Tricked", also published by Top Shelf, was released in August 2005, and was nominated for an Eisner Award and won both the 2006 Harvey Award for Best Original Graphic Novel and the 2006 Ignatz Award for Outstanding Graphic Novel. Alex was also nominated in the Best Writer category for the Harvey Award.

These books are tranlasted into French, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese and German.

In October 2007 "Alex Robinson's Lower Regions" was released, a 56-page comic about "a sexy barbarian fighting monsters." Two sequels are planned for the coming years.

His next graphic novel, "Too Cool to Be Forgotten", was published in July 2008.

Robinson is part of a loosely associated comics collective called "The Ink Panthers", along with Mike Dawson, Tony Consiglio and a few others.

Robinson lives in New York City with his wife and cat, Krimpet.
