I light up when I talk about comics.

Hi, my name is Matt Haberbusch (he/him), and I’m a cartoonist and full-time engineer located in Cleveland, Ohio.

My focus is in short story comics. I aim to make lighthearted and humanist short-form fiction. I love the versatility of the short story comic and the flexibility of the self-published minicomic! I also love leading group comics making activities. I co-organize an comics making group for adults in Cleveland called Comics in the Circle.

For any comics related inquiries, please email me at haberfish (at) gmail.com!
