About the author:

Cooper Renner's illustrations have been used as cover and/or interior art in four chapbooks from Bannock Street Books, including the chapbook anthologies Flushed, The Mother, the Son and the Holy Ghost and Outlaws, and the story collections St Sebastian and the Ravioli of Love by Sarah Black and Lost and Found by Meg Pokrass.

"The Bicyclist" and "Wither" appeared in July 2010 in the Summer Splash issue of Sleet Magazine. Ravenna Triple #1 (the first in a new series from Ravenna Press) includes poetry by Alek Lindus, fiction by Brandon Hobson, and two sets of Renner's drawings, "The Amores" (a wordless sequence of lined drawings) and "The Sorrows of Young Hemdlos" (a graphic novella inspired by, and in some ways a joust at, pre-Modernist "school fiction" such as Musil's The Confusions of Young Torless.

The Tommy Plans

Authored by Cooper Renner

When the Soviets invade the U.S. in the 1960s, two eight-year-olds spring into action to save themselves and their classmates. The Tommy Plans is a comic and affectionate look at life in Cold War America and a subtle reflection on contemporary life. Renner's pencil illustrations reinforce the childlike innocence of his heroes, free of duplicity and malice.
