Devin Trudell is a cartoonist who grew up in MAD-Town reading MAD Magazine, and has lived in Milwaukee since 2005 with stops in Austin TX, and Seattle, WA along the way. He has published two books: 3 Stories, which contains illustrated versions of his father Dennis Trudell’s short stories, and the graphic novel, The Man Who Lived With Roaches. His work appears in various local papers, including those of the ACLU, Voces De La Frontera, an immigrants’ rights organization in Milwaukee, and the website Black Agenda Report.
