In the years they’ve been together, they’ve spent almost eight years exhibiting at comic conventions (including San Diego and WonderCon) promoting Tabloia, Monstrosis, Doris Danger, Dr. Debunko and a slew of other projects that keeps them busy. If that wasn’t enough, their plate is overflowing taking care of two young boys. For Elizabeth, surviving the comic circuit is all about balance and support.
Onezumi Hartstein and her husband of 13 years, James Harknell, both founded Intervention—

Audra and Scott of nemu*nemu, an all ages web comic updated three times a week, hail from the lovely state of Hawaii.

It’s quite a production for these two to pack up their exhibit and travel to the mainland to promote nemu*nemu — a challenge they’ve taken on for the last five years.
