Mission Statement

Cross X Comix was originally started in a dorm room at the University of Oregon on October 7th, 2014. The site started as just a simple Facebook page and expanded on Tumblr, Deviantart, and on the site that you see today.

Cross X Comix features 5 different series, each of which address themes relating to diversity, racism, sexism, queer-phobias, poverty, and other systemic issues we encounter in our society. While the worlds featured in the comics may be magical or futuristic, the realities are not that far off from our own.

These comics are geared to a teenage to young adult audience. Please be advised, as there is sexual content, violence, gore, and strong language in these stories.

Philosophy & History

My Approach

I use my comics to address complex themes relating to intersecting systems of oppression. My comics talk about homophobia, racism, sexism, and poverty. But they also put a focus on diversity. As a kid, I always loved seeing powerful female leads in comics, and seeing so many characters from diverse backgrounds. I feel like diversity is ultimately something to be celebrated in comic books, and I want that to be reflected in my work.

 

My Story

I launched Cross X Comix as a small Facebook page when I was a freshman in college. Growing up, I wrote a lot of comics over the years, but I always put them away in a box, never to be seen again. I wanted people to read my comics so that I could hopefully develop my skills as both a writer and artist.
