Martin E Brandt has created and written several comic book series over the years. He co-created and wrote the comic Kidthulhu: Tales of Madness, a successfully funded project on Kickstarter in 2015 and the second issue in 2016.

Martin has a fondness for mythology, folklore, and horror that inspired his first published work Grim Furry Tales: Seeds. He was among the winners of Small Press Idol for creating and writing Stitchwork. Martin has also created and curated several small press graphic novel anthologies that include Grim Crew Presents: Dead Future, Grim Crew Presents: Winter’s Eye, and Extraordinary.

Outside of writing, you can find Martin raising his daughters with his wife, supporting the technology needs of journalists in DC, and obsessing over Batman, games design, and mechanics. 


Charles C Dowd is a Baltimore-based author, illustrator, and graphic novelist. He specializes in fast-paced, character-driven action-adventure stories that often cross over into the ridiculous. Charles’ biggest influences are 80s horror, pro-wrestling, Saturday morning cartoons, and MTV. Some of his comic works include Lilith Dark, and Kidthulhu: Tales of Madness (co-created by Martin E Brandt).

Charles has also successfully crowdfunded several book projects, including his acclaimed picture book The A to Z Guide to Jobs for Girls. Charles’ semi-autobiographical webcomic Big Fat Charlie entertains over 30,000 social media followers each week.

On his days off, Charles spends time with his wife and two children, their bulldog, chihuahua, and three cats.


And introducing Kidthulhu and his next adventure!

KIDTHULHU AND THE OMNOMNOMICON is a humorous, imaginative, and completely ridiculous middle-grade graphic novel inspired by the works of H. P. Lovecraft. The book is a fast-paced adventure focusing on the strange and the weird around us and features an eccentric cast of characters.

Written and created by Martin E Brandt II and Charles C Dowd, KIDTHULHU AND THE OMNOMNOMICON will appeal to fans of the books AMULET, BONE, and THE LAST KIDS ON EARTH.
