Ken Bailey, 60,is a self-published cartoon artist, caricaturist,and comic book creator/artist/writer whose earliest books date back to the mid-1960’s (having “published” an issue from ongoing series Supercat while yet in Junior High School).
Since 2004, Ken’s current flagship character has been a supercharged middle-aged school teacher named THE MIGHTY ENERGYGIRL. A human woman born in the 50’s with a fluke in her DNA, EnergyGirl (Ellen Anne Peabody) grew up with every cell in her body developed to a perfection far beyond usual. She can run at 70 mph, bench press 250 tons,and exercise for hours without tiring; Ken loves telling both sides of her story (Supervillains fear her muscles;school kids fear her homework)! EnergyGirl’s mortal husband Stan Peabody is her unlikely mate; he is there to listen and serve her hot chocolate at the end of the day when the super-workday is over and she wants to lay the hero mantle down and just be a normal human again.
There have been to date thirty-plus feature-length EnergyGirl comic books produced, a like number of shorter vignettes,and several thousand stand-alone full color panels. The “Super Schoolmarm” has appeared on DeviantArt and currently has two Facebook pages in her honor.
Ken also creates caricatures and other types of cartoons as well.
