E. Ross Ura published and sold his her comic in elementary school. That first 8 page book grew into an ongoing series that lasted over 10 issues, sold at recess and after school for $0.25 each. Thankfully for the literary and art world, it is extremely unlikely that any of these comics still exist. While it would be many years before Ross would pen another comic, her passion for storytelling never dwindled. In addition to collaborating with artists around Michigan on fiction and autobiographical comics, Ross publishes the webcomics 5 x 3(Wednesdays)and Buy/Sell/Exit(Mondays and Fridays)on Tapas.
In September 2014, Ross published the first print edition of 5 x 3, in a volume entitled 5 x 3: All The Wit You Can Fit on the Back of a Note Card, collecting Seasons 1 and 2 of the webcomic in brand new, digitally produced editions, as well as previously unpublished odds and ends. In February 2016, a print run of a new collection of 5 x 3 was successfully funded on Kickstarter.
In November 2017, Ross launched her largest project yet. You & I is a collection of seven vignette comics about the many ways we experience love. The 32 page collection was successfully funded on Kickstarter.
