I am fortunate enough to have too many talented friends to give them all adequate airtime. Here’s a start:

Jed Collins, my housemate and right-hand cartoonist.

Zack Lipez, the singer for Freshkills, reliable thorn-in-my-side.

Ben Bertocci, incredibly talented painter who never returns my phone calls. Total jerk.

Mariko Suzuki, Ben’s lovely wife who is even more talented than her husband who never calls me back.

Tim Krieder, writer, columnist, cartoonist, evil genius.

Doug Stanhope, my moral compass.

Brendon Walsh, professional funnyman.

Rasha Proctor, who designed and built this site for me. Thanks, Rasha!

Adil Dara Kim, who has designed all my Kindle Single covers.

The Press

"The Kindle Singles bestseller list has anointed new stars like Mishka Shubaly..." -
The New York Times"

"the gruff and rough-voiced Shubaly is a chronicler of mankind's darkest impulses and failures, a guy with a ticket to hell and back"
Time Out New York

"a beaming ray of jet-black sunshine"
The Village Voice

"Shubaly is earnestly obstinate, yet capable of change; a nihilist, and yet he seeks meaning; a walking contradiction and a joy to spend time with on paper."

“Don’t miss the track from singer/songwriter Mishka Shubaly..”
USA Today
