Greg Fox began making comics at 12 years old, publishing his first strip at age 14 and continuing to illustrate and write comic strips through high school and
college. He received a B.A. from Geneseo College in upstate New York. Immediately following college, he played guitar in several New York-based rock bands, but then jumped into doing comics full-force. His illustration work has appeared in comic books for such companies as Revolutionary Comics, Triumphant Comics, and Marvel Comics. He is also the writer/artist for such comic strips as "Manic Music", (based on his experience in the rock music world), and "An Angel's Story".
Fox's most notable comic strip, "Kyle's Bed & Breakfast", premiered in late 1998. The strip is currently running in a variety of publications across North America, as well as on the web. Fox published the first book collection of Kyle's B&B in September, 2004. The book was a Lambda Literary Award Finalist for "Best Humor Book" of the year in 2005. He was the grand-prize winner of the "Life Without Fair Courts" cartoon contest in 2007, sponsored by Lambda Legal.
A second book collection of Kyle's B&B, "Kyle's Bed & Breakfast: A Second Bowl of Serial",
was published in 2012. The third collection, "Hot Off the Griddle", (marking the comic strip's
change to full color), was published in 2013. "Kyle's B&B Presents; Drawings of Drew", a book of classical-style figure drawings of one of the Kyle's B&B characters, was published
in 2014. The 4th Kyle's B&B collection, "Without Reservations", was published in November, 2015. Fox is currently busily producing new episodes of Kyle's B&B, and working on
several other projects for Sugar Maple Press.
Fox currently resides in Northport, Long Island, New York.
