Welcome. My name is Justin M. Knipper. I write comics and teach English in Tokyo, Japan. 

What I've done:

  • I co-founded The Panoptic Press, an independent comics imprint, with Steven Arenius and Bile. We specialize in horror, avant-garde and science-fiction comics, in addition to assorted toys and apparel.
  • I played guitar for Mucopus and Wasteform. I've recorded three full albums and performed on seven international live tours.
  • I have a Bachelors of Science in Music Theory & Composition from SUNY New Paltz in New York. I minored in English.
