The Hypo: The Melancholic Young Lincoln

2012, Noah Van Sciver

Noah Van Sciver (born July 7, 1984) is an independent American cartoonist. He currently resides in Columbia, South Carolina.

Van Sciver grew up in a large family in New Jersey. A self-taught artist, he was influenced by many comics, including Ralph Snart Adventures and comics by Joe Matt and R. Crumb. He and his family were members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church), but he is no longer a member. His brother Ethan is a comic book artist and an internet personality.

Van Sciver began producing his one-person anthology Blammo in 2006, originally selling them for one dollar. His 4 Questions strip in Denver's alternative weekly, Westword, helped publicize his work when he started publishing it in 2007. After four issues of Blammo, Kilgore Books & Comics published subsequent issues.
