Nicky Rodriguez (she/her)


Nicky is a queer Puerto Rican comic artist, flatter, and colorist. She is the creator of two ongoing webcomics, The Unlucky Ones and the Edge of Nowhere, and, The Smoke in the Mirror. In 2018, she started out making autobiographical zines exploring mental health, the impermanence of time and memory, her existential ennui, and the meaning of home and homesickness in connection to being of the Puerto Rican diaspora. She continues to explore these subjects in her fiction comics, looking to find ways in which traditional comic narrative form can be deconstructed through depictions of ephemerality as it relates to emotion, memory, and time. She holds a BFA in animation and MFA in comics from California College of the Arts.
