Brother and sister artists Peter and Maria Hoey live on opposite coasts but work closely together. Trading drawings back and forth from their studios in Northern California and New York. The Hoeys began writing and drawing comics in Blab! Magazine in the late 1990s, then launched their self-published comic book series, Coin-Op, in 2008. Their 2018 Comics Anthology, published by Top Shelf, earned a starred review from Publisher's Weekly. Their self-published comics have been nominated twice for Eisner Awards. Animal Stories, their first full-length graphic novel, will be published by Top Shelf in December 2021, followed by The Bend of Luck in August 2022.
