Born in Queens, New York, Bob Fingerman, while still a toddler, picked up a drawing implement and there ended all notions of ever holding down a "real job." Isn't that adorable? For most of the past two decades he's toiled as a freelance illustrator, cartoonist and writer for a wide variety of publications and publishers, from The Village Voice, Heavy Metal, Marvel, DC and Dark Horse Comics, as well as some of the filthiest porn rags produced this side of the equator (see client list). He could bore you with a lot of detail, but why bother?
With the notable exception of the truly fabulous Beg the Question, Fingerman has recently devoted his time almost exclusively to writing, and hopes very much that you will procure his next book, whether it's got pictures or not. In fact, buy all his books.
He currently lives in New York City with his wife, Michele, where he divides his time between feeling good and feeling not so good.
