Kara Bodegón is an author-cartoonist + music journalist
She would've been a musician if it hadn't been for her inability to focus on one instrument at a time, so she just ended up writing about people who could.
She's been writing for local and international publications (PULP Magazine, Juice PH, Yellow Pages, Billboard, Bandwagon Asia) and working behind the scenes at concerts since 2011. She did okay studying Multimedia Arts at De La Salle-College of St. Benilde but then graduated Valedictorian from her MFA in Creative Writing at Full Sail University.
When she isn't writing or drawing, Kara enjoys playing video games, chowing down on pizza, worshipping heavy metal and Disney soundtracks, and wishing she could one day be a great white shark.
Kara's debut graphic novel SQUALO & MAGE is coming at you through HarperCollins in 2023.
