What do you get when you combine 35+ years of visual storytelling with an entrepreneurial spirit? You get the veteran owned, self publishing, comic book creator known globally as Grunt 1B Comics. Launched in 2013 in a 2'x3' corner of his North Park home, Chad Cavanaugh has created a comic book universe, currently spanning four stories and growing, which has reached readers on four continents. Being a veteran of the United States Army Infantry and former Sentinel at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Arlington National Cemetery inspired the name "Grunt 1B Comics" and in true grunt spirit, Chad handles every single aspect of this publishing company. From story creation to illustration, pre print production to distribution, sales and marketing management as well as customer service. Grunt 1B Comics is a tireless, one man operation on the verge of its 20th publication in three years. Chad is a primarily self taught artist who created his own space in the comic book world without help of anyone within the industry and now mentors others who possess the desire to put out their own creator owned comics.

Chad was honorably discharged from the United States Army Infantry in 1996, having earned three Army Commendation medals, three Army Achievement medals, the Good Conduct medal, National Defense Service medal, the Expert Infantryman badge, air assault badge, the coveted Tomb Guard Identification badge (#408) as well as being combat life saver certified. Chad is a former singer/songwriter with two albums available across most streaming platforms and is happily married, with three daughters and a dog named Poncho.
