Tarol Hunt

Tarol Hunt.jpg

Creator, writer and illustrator of the Goblins web comic.

Tarol Hunt first tried to place his comics on the internet as a child in the 80’s. Discovering that this would be an almost impossible task until the internet was invented, he tried again in 2005 with much greater success. As a child, Tarol drew scores of comics, mostly involving Dungeons & Dragons. He was inspired by other comics like Elfquest, Heavy Metal Magazine and Dragon Magazine (well you know, the back of Dragon Magazine… where the comics were).

Danielle Stephens

Without Danielle Stephens, there would be no Goblins. Behind the scenes, Danielle has edited and managed the comic and its tendrils since 2005. When not juggling goblin-related paperwork, she writes the Hyper Halfling line of role-playing game & story-building supplements. She's also a rather good french horn player.
