About me

Mad Rupert is less than 5 feet tall and lives in Somerville, Massachusetts. She got her start in online comics over ten years ago, and authors two ongoing webcomics: Sakana, a slice-of-life workplace comedy, and Robber-Robert, a sci-fi romance for mature readers. She has also worked extensively on comic adaptations of Cartoon Network properties like Adventure Time, Regular Show, and Steven Universe. When not making comics, Mad enjoys spending time with her partner and their very old dog, going to the gym, and playing Minecraft. ‘Mad’ is short for Madeline, she’s not actually angry. 

Sakana has been self-published online since 2010 with three successful Kickstarters to print volumes 1-3 in 2016, 2017, and 2020.

You can read Sakana for free at:

The first chapter of Robber/Robert was successfully Kickstarted in 2022. 

An unannounced graphic novel written by Ngozi Ukazu (Check, Please!) and drawn by Mad is forthcoming in 2024 through First Second. 

You can find stickers, pins and keychains in her personal store:
