Leonardo Faierman | SnowDaze | SnowDaze Twitter

Works Include: I write the comic Snow Daze, about young people of color building a strange little empire based on snow shoveling in their newly adopted middle-class suburb. It’s a two-fisted noir-ish 90s story, think Goodfellas by way of Brick.

I also co-host #BlackComicsChat, a bi-weekly podcast which airs live on Twitter, along with 3 other people, including the artist and co-creator of the comic (Marcus Anderson). I also write stuff as a freelancer, but my main home base is at www.blackgirlnerds.com. (Check out Leonardo’s articles here

Snow Daze has had one full issue (available as a physical copy or through Comixology), as well as a series of webcomics. There was a new Snow Daze 7-pager published last year in Jerome Walford’s Gwan anthology TPB as well, and issue 2 will (hopefully) be out soon.


There’s a lot of amazing Latinx comic book and webcomic writers out there, so let me know who they are! Fill out the form below and I’ll add them to the list. The only requirements are that you must be Latinx, have or previously worked in the comic industry and be a writer! If you fit both of those criteria fill out the form below and I’ll add you to the list.

If you’re already on the list and would like your mini-profile updated (or removed) just fill out the “Other” comment box below with your request. This will be an every growing list that will change and develop to include more information (and a prettier layout) as time goes on. For now, enjoy!
