A Brief History

Writer and artist Kate Leth is widely-recognized as one of the top talents helping to shape a new generation of comics. Canadian-born Leth, who now lives in Los Angeles, gained notoriety for her work focusing on teen and all-age stories – for comics and graphic novels, as well at the screen.

Leth attended Nova Scotia College of Art and Design (NSCAD University) studying photography before dropping out. Afterwards she started working at the Strange Adventures comic shop in Halifax, Nova Scotia, That’s where her interest in comics grew.

She caught the attention of BOOM! Studios with her Adventure Time fan art on her Tumblr page. And that subsequently turned into graphic novel, Adventure Time: Seeing Red, which hit The New York Times Best Seller list.

She is also collaborator on the podcast Less than Live with Kate or Die, and is the organizer of The Valkyries, a group of women who work in comics retail.
