Yehudi Mercado is a self-proclaimed Pizza Laureate, cartoonist, writer, and animator from Austin, TX, who currently lives in Los Angeles. Yehudi spent many an afternoon in detention during his formative years and credits that “thinking about what you’ve done time” for his unstoppable imagination. As a latchkey kid, Yehudi would choreograph elaborate kung-fu fight scenes set to his RUN DMC and Beastie Boys records, thus providing the foundation for Sci-Fu (Oni Press). His projects as writer-illustrator include Buffalo Speedway (Devastator Press), Pantalones, TX (BOOM!/ Archaia), Rocket Salvage (BOOM!/ Archaia), Hero Hotel (Fanbase Press), as well as the mobile game Guardians of the Galaxy: The Universal Weapon (Marvel/ Disney).
