About the Author


Maris Wicks lives in Somerville, Massachusetts. She has harnessed the power of her various biological systems to draw comics for Adhouse Books, Tugboat Press, and Spongebob Comics, and has written stories for Image and DC Comics. Wicks is the author of Human Body Theater and the illustrator of New York Times bestselling Primates, with Jim Ottaviani. When Maris is not drawing comics, she can be found prepping slides for her collection of vintage microscopes. She's especially proud of her pulmonary system.
