Who is Jon Macy?

Jon Macy is a gay American comics writer and artist. He began his career in 1990 with the series Tropo published September 1990 - April 1992 by Blackbird Comics. Since then, he has contributed to various LGBT comics anthologies and gay pornographic magazines, but he is best known for his graphic novel Teleny and Camille, which won a 2010 Lambda Literary Award for Gay Erotica.

Macy's first series Tropo was part of the early 1990s black and white alternative comics boom. It was followed by the erotic horror series Nefarismo published October 1994 - October 1995 by Fantagraphics, Eros Comix. These stories contained dark and surreal motifs, mixing eroticism with hallucination and death/rebirth, which remain a signature within nearly all Macy's personal works.

Throughout the 1990s, Macy contributed to queer comics anthologies, Meatmen and Gay Comics, and gay skin magazines, like Steam by Scott O'Hara, Bunkhouse and International Leatherman. His work on Meatmen included a short story entitled "Tail".
