Octopus Pie is a comic series that ran from 2007-2017, about two women living in Brooklyn, NY – their jobs, social circles, and some problems. Start reading from the beginning here. It is currently being updated daily in reruns, with author commentary.

The comic is written and drawn by Meredith Gran (the person writing this, hi).

Most of the colors were done by Valerie Halla, who also draws a great webcomic called Goodbye to Halos. The colors in “What’s Different” and “The Witch Lives” were done by Sloane Leong.

B-B-BIOGRAPHY: I was born on Long Island and lived in Brooklyn as a freelance comic artist & occasional animator for most of the series run. I currently live in Philadelphia. I teach the undergrad webcomics course at the School of Visual Arts. I wrote and drew the Eisner-nominated Adventure Time comic book spin-off Marceline & the Scream Queens, and wrote Marceline Gone Adrift, illustrated by Carey Pietsch. I’m currently working on a video game called Perfect Tides, an adventure about being a teen.

My dog’s name is Heidi and everyone loves her. She’s 9 years old and is a mix of a few kinds of terrier.

For a long time I lifted weights. My highest bench press is 62.5 kg. Now I mostly eat plants and my muscles are smaller. I swim a lot, which makes me hungry all the time. Other life stuff is sorta-shared on Twitter.
