Kerry Callen is the cartoonist behind the whimsical comic book Halo and Sprocket.
By day, Callen works in the licensing department at Hallmark Cards, adapting the drawings of Americaâ€™s most popular cartoonists into greeting cards. By night, he creates Halo and Sprocket, one of the most charming and funny comic books youâ€™ll find.
Halo and Sprocket is about a young woman (Katie) who lives with an angel (Halo) and a robot (Sprocket). The series is an outlet for Callenâ€™s fascination with things that simply donâ€™t make sense when you think about them for too long. No topic is too trivial to be turned into a mind bending farce: burping; why thereâ€™s a cursive version letters, but not numbers; and the fact that the proverbial glass is neither half full nor half empty no matter what Katie says.
