Tony Gray is the creator, artist, and writer of Tales of the Incredible Conduit, a comic book published by his indie publishing house GlassMonkey Studios that sold 21,000 copies of its first issue.
Tony is also the creative force behind syndicated strip Saturday Afternoon, a daily comic strip that was first published in 2000 and appears in newspapers across North America.
But that’s just the beginning of the story.
In 2011, Tony started GlassMonkey Studios Inc., along with colleague David Finch. David eventually chose a different path and now does creative work exclusively for DC Comics.
Along with Tales of the Incredible Conduit, GlassMonkey publishes GlassMonkey Business, a series for children, and mystery/horror anthology series improbabilia. Coming soon is Lou & Blue, written by Kenny Hotz and illustrated by Tony Gray, plus a book that’s so new it doesn’t yet have a title or an artist assigned to it.
It might sound like it was an easy road, but of course, as with any business venture, there have been a lot of roadblocks along the way. It’s been hard work forging a publishing business, and a lot of mistakes have been made. The rough patches were good for one thing though; they provided a lot of good learning opportunities, which we’re going to share with you here at Comic Book Creative Hub.
