Jay Allen Sanford
Jay Allen Sanford co-created the comic book line Rock 'N' Roll Comics, and his publishing company Re-Visionary Press is known for its line of Carnal Comics; together, the two titles were among the top-selling independent comic books of the '90s. He also created the comic strip "Rock Tales," which began in Rip Magazine and now runs in Spin. Since selling off his publishing interests in 2000, he likes to scribble and type stuff every day, and rumor has it that people actually pay him to do this.
For the Reader, he writes cover stories and musician interviews, as well as contributing to the Blurt music column for over a decade. He draws two comic strips created specifically for the Reader: Overheard in San Diego (debuted 1996) and Famous Former Neighbors (since 2004). He is also the author of the blog Rock Around the Town, and contributes to Jam Session, Big Screen, and Out & About.
