Rick Smith is best known for his work with the devilish Shuck (which he produces with his wife, Tania). The 'Shuck Unmasked' trade paperback collects the Ignatz-nominated 'Shuck Comics' plus 48 pages of new material. Last year he created the online travelogue 'Baraka and Black Magic in Morocco' that Alternative Comics published. His work has been favorably compared to that of Seth and James Kochalka. He and Tania live in Denver with their daughter Sage and cat Peco.
