Michael Poe is a webcomic artist known for creating the webcomics Babylon Jones, Exploitation Now, Errant Story and Does Not Play Well with Others.[1] He majored in art at the Savannah College of Art and Design.[citation needed]


Poe's webcomic Exploitation Now ran from 2000 to 2002 and evolved from a gag-a-day to a more dramatic story. The character Jordan Kennedy from Exploitation Now received two Web Cartoonists' Choice Awards in the categories "Best Supporting Character" and "Best Female Character". A single volume of Exploitation Now was published in print by Keenspot, under the title Exploitation Now: Selling Out for Fun and Profit.[2]

Poe's longrunning fantasy webcomic Errant Story began after the conclusion of Exploitation Now and follows the character Meji Hinadori, a 17 year-old half-elf finishing her education as a mage, who is on a quest to become "an all powerful, insane demigod." Errant Story is both available in black-and-white and color.[3] Poe published one volume of this webcomic through Keenspot, and two volumes independently.


Poe's webcomic won two Web Cartoonists' Choice Awards in 2003, in the categories "Best Fantasy Comic" and "Best Newcomer Comic".[4]
