  Tyler Ellis  |  @tyler_grayson_ellis   Author and Illustrator of Chimera  Chimera is a sci-fi, but it's also about family, regret, and the abuse of power, and it's also got a gay lead, which was important not only to me but also to my publisher ( @ComickerLLC ). The goal at Comicker is to push for a diverse body of work (lead characters who are ethnic, sexual, or gender minorities) in a field whose protagonists are traditionally straight white males.
