about the artist

Sierra Barnes is a comic creator and history buff who currently lives in Washington, DC making webcomics and print comics based on history and folklore. She graduated in 2014 from the College of William & Mary with a double-major in History and German Studies, and graduated in August of 2019 with a MFA in Comics from California College of the Arts. She is particularly interested in the relationship between history, mythology, and memory, and her comics (including graphic novel HANS VOGEL IS DEAD) reflect this. When she’s not making comics, you can usually find her haunting boba shops and museums like a very nerdy ghost.

She has published comic work through Bad Neighbor Press, Mad Cave Studios, and her debut Graphic Novel Hans Vogel is Dead: Vol 1 was released through Dark Horse Comics in October 2023. As of November 2023 she is a Resident Artist with the Torpedo Factory Art Center in Alexandria, VA.
