User Bio

Emmy award winning artist, Dean Haspiel, created the Eisner Award nominated BILLY DOGMA, the semi-autobiographical digital comic, STREET CODE, helped pioneer personal webcomics with the invention of ACT-I-VATE, and co-created/co-curates, TRIP CITY.net, a Brooklyn-filtered, multimedia salon.

Dean has drawn many great superhero and semi-autobiographical comic books published by Marvel, DC/Vertigo, Dark Horse, IDW, Image, Scholastic Graphix, Toon Books, Top Shelf, Playboy, The New York Times, and Tor.com, including critically acclaimed collaborations with Harvey Pekar (American Splendor, The Quitter), Jonathan Ames (The Alcoholic), Jonathan Lethem (Cousin Corinne’s REMINDER), Tim Hall (The Last Mortician), and with Inverna Lockpez on the Harvey Award winning, CUBA: My Revolution. Dean illustrated the Super Ray comics art for HBO’s “Bored To Death,” for which he won an Emmy award for his work on the opening title sequence.

TRIP CITY is the current vista where Dean Haspiel’s cosmic bruiser, Billy Dogma, excavates unexpurgated romance and adventure with his knock ‘em dead dame, Jane Legit, while flexing two-fisted aggro-moxie and purple staccato for the 21st Century.
