Emily Horne


Emily Horne has lived in all the oceanfront provincial capitals except St John's Newfoundland. She grew up near Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, went to University in Halifax, Nova Scotia and fled for five years to Victoria, British Columbia. Now she's joined Joey in Toronto, where she takes the photos, designs the comic, and wonders when things will get better.

A Softer World.

A Softer World is a comic that was created by Emily Horne and Joey Comeau so that people would recognize them as important artistic geniuses. Sometimes the "comic" is sad or harsh. It should be noted that this is in the tradition of George Simenon's 'romans durs' (or 'hard novels') and not in the lesser traditions of comics like Peanuts or anything else not French. Comeau is a French name. (Pronounced kuh-moe, by the way. Joey is very important, please say his name correctly. Emily is also very important but her name is easier to pronounce.)

Joey Comeau


Joey is a firm believer in the idea that if you can't be a good example, you have an obligation to be a horrible warning. He writes the comic. He has a degree in linguistics which really only comes in handy when smart-asses try to correct his grammar at parties. He really, really likes candy. Like, sour candies mostly. Fuzzy peaches. Sour grapes. But man, yeah. Candy.
