Guest Strip: Lars Martinson

Categories:  Guest Strip

larstzLars Martinson grew up in a little suburb of Minneapolis on beautiful Walnut Street.  His childhood was idyllic and he grew up strong and happy.  Then, he got into comic books…

In college, he studied design, which may account for his lovely self-published books Tonoharu and Young Men of a Certain Mind.

Martinson taught English through the JET Program and returned to Japan a few years later on a Monbusho Scholarship to study East Asian Calligraphy.

In 2007, he won an enormous sum from the Xeric Foundation which he used to self-publish Tonoharu: Part 1Tonoharu: Part 2 came out in 2010 and the story will continue in parts 3-4 sometime in the future.  Look forward to it!
