Corpse Flower Press is a small woman-owned independent comic and graphic novel publisher. We focus on retelling the ghostlore and urban legends of the Cincinnati region and beyond with the talents of local artists and writers. In addition, we strive to foster a community for the arts by leading weekly comic drawing/writing prompts online plus leading panels and talks at libraries and schools teaching kids how to write and create comics. 

We produce supernatural-themed comics, graphic novels, and zines for kids, early readers, and young adults. Our current publications are the Cincinnati Cabinet of Curiosities comic anthology series that successfully funded two issues via Kickstarter; with our third issue planned to Kickstart in October 2024. We also publish the paranormal-themed SHAM comics by Tim Fuller, the first one is titled Frogman Funnies, as well as children’s sci-fi story Zombio: A Space Adventure and the fantasy graphic novel series Witches and Sorcerers

–Editor Credits–

Beginning in 2020 with my work on the Cincinnati Cabinet of Curiosities comics anthology project, I have dipped my toes into the world of comics editing and discovered that it is a fantastic fit with my particular skill set. I enjoy working with various authors and artists to polish up their work and help them develop their artistic voices. My goal as an editor is to strengthen and guide the creators’ writing and illustrations to best convey their stories to their audiences.

My background is in linguistics and interpretation with my BA in Japanese Linguistics and Culture Studies from Indiana University Bloomington which requires a standard proficiency in both writing and speaking English and Japanese.
