Author and Illustrator

HI I'M ZULES. Real name: Julia Swan Wroble. I got addicted to coffee in order to bring you this comic.

Exvulnerum has existed in my mind since 2007, but it became a webcomic on May 1, 2010 when I was 17!! I LOVE being a webcomic artist because one of my favorite things to do is to craft and tell absurdly long stories! This is my PASSION :D

I am a Christian and give all credit for any good I've done to God... Also, I wouldn't be where I am today without my best friend, Ariel, and my husband, Avidro!!

Some interesting things about me:

- I wrote a 369,000-words-long novel instead of going to college

- I met my husband on a dating website, and we lived in different states up until we got married (and a few months after that)!

- Truly INFJ, super homebody

- I used to be very afraid of criticism and very anxious around people... now I welcome helpful criticism and am only slightly anxious around people! :P

- I type on a Dvorak, TypeMatrix keyboard

- When I was a kid, literally my favorite toys were drinking straws which I would bend and shape and pretend were action figures

Things I like or have been inspired by:

Japanese, Homestuck, Star Trek, Fullmetal Alchemist, Steven Universe, C.S. Lewis, Pokemon, TwoKinds, Slightly Damned, WWE, baseball, vocaloid, Babylon 5, Avatar: The Last Airbender & Korra, Gintama, Animal Crossing, Guild Wars 2, The Endless Forest, MBTI, Jane Eyre, NaNoWriMo, Fruits Basket, and Interstella 5555

Exultation is the going
Of an inland soul to sea,
Past the houses—past the headlands—
Into deep Eternity—

Bred as we, among the mountains,
Can the sailor understand
The divine intoxication
Of the first league out from land?

-Emily Dickinson
