Well known in American comics fandom since the 1960’s for his vast comic book collection and fanzine writing & cartooning, Rosa became internationally famous starting in 1987 when he began writing and drawing “Uncle $crooge” and “Donald Duck” comics for various licensed publishers in Europe.  Just as they once were in America, Donald Duck comics (based on Carl Barks’ work) continue to be the best selling comic books in Europe and South America where the *weekly* Duck comics have been read by hundreds of millions of fans for over 60 years. This makes Rosa one of the world’s best known and most popular cartoonists, but still very easy to visit with at American shows where he can relax in “relative obscurity”. American comics fans are mostly familiar with his most famous and oft-reprinted work, the Eisner Award winning “Life and Times of $crooge McDuck” series.

Ted McKeever is an adult male human, who for the last three decades, created unconventionally dark and demented comic books geared towards a very discerning audience. His first published work, Transit, appeared in 1986, establishing his trademark style. In the years that followed, he produced such critically acclaimed creator-owned titles such as Eddy Current, Plastic Forks, METROPoL, Industrial Gothic, META 4, Miniature Jesus, The Superannuated Man, and his autobiographical series Pencil Head. The latter of which details his thirty years of ups and downs in the comics industry, including working for Marvel and DC Comics, where he infected their mainstream sensibilities with his twisted interpretations of some of their most popular titles and characters.


He now runs his online store (http://tedmckeever.storenvy.com), where he sells an eclectic mix of personal merchandise, including his comics, graphic novels, and original art from past titles. He also paints weird little 5" x 5" portraits whenever the creative process agrees with him, and is even known to resurface, from time to time, on Instagram.
