William O. Tyler
William O. Tyler debuted his first comic, The Goth Queen Needs a Mate, in 2004. In it, he began exploring the themes of love and death that would become recurring in his work. His other comics include Ratboy, based on the late David Paul Brown, and Cinephilia, a deep dive into his love of film and how the artform moves in tandem with society. His work has appeared in projects from Patrick Fillion's Class Comics, Tim Sale's Young Bottoms in Love, Tommy Roddy's Pride High and more. He has also been the editor of various comic projects including Queerbait, alongside Justin Hall on Theater of Terror: Revenge of the Queers from Northwest Press and alongside Sonya Saturday on Yellow is the Warmest Color from Trash Panda Fun Zone.
In 2018, Cinephilia was picked up by Perception Studio to become a live-streamed, interaction movie talk show on Twitch and Youtube. As a critic, William has also shared his perspective on film through various panel discussions, podcasts and in documentaries. He has also served on the screening comitte for NewFest, as a judge at the North Bend Film Festival, as well as a literary judge for Prism Comics and Lambda Literary.
He is currently working on Anxious Ax, a comic exploring the horrors of anxiety from a Black and queer perspective.
