Alex Woolfson grew up loving science-fiction and action movies, but never got to see what he really wanted to see -- kick-ass genre stories with real heroes who just happened to be gay. After starting a successful career as a filmmaker in the Bay Area, he soon realized the best way to create the "big-budget" adventure stories he craved would be as full-color comics.

Both of Alex's comics feature gay heroes as the main protagonists (Artifice was a Lambda Literary Award finalist in 2014) and The Young Protectors especially has a strong focus on diversity. Alex also ran two very successful Kickstarters, most recently raising over $133,000 for printing the first volume of The Young Protectors.

Alex is enthusiastic about connecting with LGBT readers through comics and especially enjoys encouraging new creators to follow his path of making a living creating inclusive genre fiction.
