For many, Trungles needs no introduction. But for those just learning about Trungles for the first time… Trung Le Nguyen, also known as Trungles, is a Vietnamese-American comic book artist and storyteller from Minnesota. He was born in a refugee camp somewhere in the Philippine province of Palawan. He’s contributed work for Oni Press, Boom! Studios, and Image Comics, largely in the romance genre. He was an artist on the Image Comics romance anthology Twisted Romance, written by Alex de Campi.
Trungles’ first original graphic novel, The Magic Fish about a young Vietnamese gay immigrant and his parents who bond and learn English through fairy tale books, was released in 2020 by Random House Graphic. He’s also published the Star Spinner Tarot Deck as well as the Very Little Tarot Deck, and he offers lots of physical goodies to his Patreon backers.
