Stephanie McMillan decided at age ten that she would become a cartoonist, and spent much of grade school reading Peanuts and copying the characters. She created a short animated film during the summer after high school at the film studio near Bonn, Germany that had been founded by her grandfather, animator Hans Fischerkoesen (Das Loch im Westen and Die Vervitterte Melodie). Awakening in high school to the dangers of nuclear war, she went on to work for many years as an activist against imperialism and for social justice issues. Currently her daily comic strip Minimum Security is syndicated online at Universal Uclick’s http://gocomics.com. She also draws and self-syndicates a weekly editorial cartoon, Code Green.
