Yuko Ota is a freelance cartoonist and illustrator who has worked with publishers like Oni Press, Lerner Publishing and Dark Horse, Inc.
She works in a cozy home office somewhere in Brooklyn, NY. Her assistant is a little black cat, who diligently steals her seat and picks up the slack on her sleep schedule. Yuko is powered by coffee, usually with a dash of milk and a dollop of molasses.
In addition to her normal workload, Yuko volunteers. She spends most of her community service hours in the U.S. dealing with domestic crises, except for a brief stint overseas assisting Excalibur.
