Greg Cook is part of the new wave of "underground" cartoonists pushing the boundaries of contemporary comic books by experimenting with styles and subject matter that go beyond traditional newspaper gag strips and superhero pamphlets. His subjects range from history to comedy to fictional dramas about day-to-day life. He has published his comics in Nickelodeon Magazine, Tower Records' Pulse magazine, The Believer, New Art Examiner, Arthur, Non, L'Association's Comix 2000 and numerous other publications. His darkly funny comic book, Catch As Catch Can, was published by Highwater Books in 2001 and helped him win the "Promising New Talent" award at the Small Press (Comics) Expo in Bethesda, Md., the following year. His art has been exhibited in venues near Gloucester, Mass., where he resided for a decade, as well as such far away places as Chicago, Cleveland, Napoli, Italy, and Angouleme, France. His work toured the United States as part of the exhibit "Comic Release: Negotiating Identity for a New Generation" in 2003 and 2004. A newspaper reporter for more than a decade, Mr. Cook is now writing and illustrating a graphic novel documentary about American veterans of the war in Iraq that is to be published by a division of Henry Holt Books. He is also the editor of The New England Journal of Aesthetic Research, commodore of The Society for the Preservation of Fitz Hugh Lane, and founder of The Invisible Museum. He resides in Boston.
