San Diego Comic Fest 2016 guest Maritza Campos
Maritza Campos is a Mexican cartoonist and writer residing in Yucatan, Mexico. She started making her first webcomic in 1999, when the webcomic medium was still in its infancy, which makes her a veteran of the medium and one of the first female webcomic authors.

Having acquired popularity with her webcomic College Roomies from Hell, she joined Keenspot, one of the first professional webcomic networks.

In 2009 she launched another webcomic, called Doomies, which lasted two years.

In 2011 she launched yet another webcomic, this time focusing on writing duties, along with artist extraordinaire Sebastian Carrillo “Bachan”. The webcomic is called Power Nap and it received instant critical and reader approval.
