Octopus Pie is an ongoing comic series, started in 2007, about two women living in Brooklyn, NY – their jobs, social circles, and some problems. Start reading from the beginning here.

The comic is written and drawn by Meredith Gran (the person writing this, hi).

The colors are done by Valerie Halla, who also draws a great webcomic called Portside Stories. The colors in “What’s Different” and “The Witch Lives” were done by Sloane Leong.

B-B-BIOGRAPHY: I was born on Long Island and live and work in Brooklyn as a freelance comic artist & occasional animator. I teach the undergrad webcomics course at the School of Visual Arts. I wrote and drew the Eisner-nominated Adventure Time comic book spin-off Marceline & the Scream Queens, and wrote Marceline Gone Adrift, illustrated by Carey Pietsch.

My dog’s name is Heidi and everyone loves her. She’s 7 years old and is some kind of terrier, I think.

In addition to drawing I enjoy lifting weights. My current highest bench press is 62.5 kg. The rest of my life tends to be overshared on Twitter.
