Leanne & Rod Hannah

Leanne Hannah is an illustrator who has worked on projects for Marvel Comics, Hasbro, Scholastic and Mattel, amongst others. Over the past several years, she has worked on various children’s properties such as Transformers, Casper, He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, Duel Masters, Weebles, and My Little Pony. Her most recent published work includes Casper and the Spectrals for Ardden Entertainment (written by Todd Dezago!), Whatever Happened to Baron Von Shock? for Rob Zombie and Image Comics, her self-published children’s picture book Hickory Hippo and the Snow Mystery, and color work on Transformers toy packaging.

In her spare time she and her husband Rod collaborate on a Star Wars webcomic called Blue Milk Special, where they have been lovingly parodying the original trilogy of films since 2009.

Leanne currently lives in Maryland with her husband Rod and crazy cat Biggs, loves studying history, is fiercely devoted to the Baltimore Ravens and Orioles, takes pride in her left-handedness and has more Beatles knowledge in her head than is probably healthy.

Rod Hannah writes for the two-time Harvey Award winning Mice Templar (published by Image Comics) and the retro animation magazine Ceral:Geek. He has written and self-published a children’s picture book called Hickory Hippo and the Snow Mystery, the all-ages comic book Once Upon a Caper, and popular ongoing webcomic series Blue Milk Special (now translated into five languages!). Rod has edited and lettered indie comics, including Kevin Conn’s Lava-Roid and Jim McCarter’s Pulverized, and recently provided coloring on Todd Dezago and Craig Rousseau’s Perhapanauts: Into Hollow Earth graphic novel. Rod is currently dividing time between various coloring and writing projects, including his first full-length children’s novel.

Born in England, Rod moved to New Zealand when he was five years old. Love brought him to the east coast of America where he now works with his comic book illustrator wife Leanne and rambunctious cat Biggs.
