Angry Gnome Comics is a horror publisher headed up by husband/wife team Shawn and Stephanie Gabborin. With Shawn writing and Steph whipping around a mean pencil, they have published such horror titles as “Palm Reader” and “Victor Season”. Shawn (still writing) has been joined by a horde of other artists for their horror anthology “Short Stack”.
Shawn also spearheaded the Greenbrook Project, challenging five indie publishers to take the same basic plot and character list and create their own unique story out of it. And that they did! Check out the Angry Gnome Comics entry “Greenbrook: Our House, His Home” (more writing by Shawn) for a taste of what the Greenbrook Project is all about.
Shawn (with artist Mario Cau) has had stories published in Heavy Metal Magazine and an upcoming horror anthology tentatively titled “2012: Final Prayer”.
Stephanie is honing her skills on Sketch Cards and Pin Ups… so hit her up for one!
Basically, Angry Gnome Comics just wants to be your friend, scare you… and eat the soft parts of your face when you fall asleep. Is that too much to ask?
