Bio




Grant Snider began drawing and writing before he knew what he was doing. Soon it was too late to stop.

His work has appeared in The New Yorker, The New York Times Book Review, The Kansas City Star, The Best American Comics 2013, and all across the internet. A collection of his comics, The Shape of Ideas, will be published by Abrams in 2017.

Grant lives in Wichita, Kansas with his wife, daughter, and two sons, where he also practices orthodontics. You can often find him carrying a sketchbook, lost in his own thoughts.

  2. I grew up on newspaper comics as well, but now have a list of online comic links that I go browse on a daily basis since I don't subscribe to a paper any longer. I now have another link that will start in the top ten favorites. And from the great square state as well...

  22. It's really depressing that someone who is this good at comics can't earn a living from it. Back when people actually bought newspapers, he probably could have done. As someone above said "I now have a list of online comics that I go browse...since I don't subscribe to a paper any longer". Yep, and that's why in ten years' time we'll all be consuming content written by imbeciles.
