Jim Munroe (b. 1972) is a “pop culture provocateur” according to the Austin Chronicle, and an “independent press icon” to Time Out Chicago. After leaving HarperCollins for political reasons, he founded No Media Kings and published five books, the most recent one a post-Rapture graphic novel called Therefore Repent! He also started The Perpetual Motion Roadshow, an indie touring circuit that sent 100 artists on the road between 2003-2007, and currently, he is running the Artsy Games Incubator, a writer’s-circle style group helping creators without programming skills make video games. He lives in Toronto with a crafty ladyscientist and their bafflingly attractive baby.
