I’m Stuart McMillen, and I draw long-form comics about social issues involving science, ecology, sustainability, psychology and economics.

Born in Bundaberg in 1985, I now live in Canberra, Australia. I draw thoughtful comics about issues that are important to me, and self-publish through this website for the world to read.

I use comics as my medium of choice for my thought-provoking non-fiction stories. Many of these comics have ‘gone viral’ on the web, with Rat Park, Supernormal Stimuli and War on Drugs being three of my best-known examples.

I am a crowdfunded cartoonist, with an ongoing crowdfunding campaign hosted at Readers from around the world support my cartooning by pledging a recurring monthly payment via Patreon. Please watch my three-minute pitch video at to see how you can help become a patron of my comics.

New readers: where to begin?

If you are a new reader, see my ‘Top 10‘ list of my personal favourite comics. It is a good “where to begin?” resource for newcomers.

You can also explore my comics archive chronologically, or by topic.
