Sam Soto is a latino comic artist heavily influenced by his lifelong love of manga and anime. It’s been his dream to be a published creator of Manga in the west. In 2019 he graduated with an MFA in Comics from the California College of the Arts in San Francisco. Sam is also a big fan of fantasy books, and likes stories with dark elements and intriguing mysteries. Some of his favorite stories are Monster by Naoki Urasawa, The Monstrumologist by Rick Yancy, and The Witcher series by Andrzej Sapkowski. Apparently he’s just really drawn to monsters.
When he’s not working, Sam likes to watch British panel shows, play video games, and read comics and books. Usually he has a cup of coffee while he does each of these things. Originally from the pacific northwest, he currently lives with his girlfriend and their black cat Nyx in Illinois.
He works on all his comics with his brother Lucas Soto, who does all the writing and lettering.
