Erik Klaus aka Interstateninja is an indie-comics creator living in NC.

Erik played bass in a punk band, made short films, and drew comics before being completely consumed by a regular 40hr work-week kind of life. After 10 years of serving the machine he was still fighting to keep the dream alive by drawing creator owned comics on nights and weekends. So, in 2013 his wife pushed him to go to art school. They picked the Kubert School, took out a bunch of loans, and moved Erik to New Jersey for 3 years. Erik Graduated from the Joe Kubert School of Cartoon and Graphic Art in 2016 and began to create his own D.I.Y. Comic Book Career. 3 years, 2 successful Kickstarters, 7 self-published books, and 30+ Comic Book Conventions later, he is still making comics and art.

Erik is the creator of NINJAS AND ROBOTS™ and WONAR™(World of Ninjas and Robots).

He is currently working on NINJAS AND ROBOTS 2, his second super awesome Graphic Novel, which is scheduled to drop December 2019.
