Francesco Marciuliano is the writer of Sally Forth, a widely syndicated comic strip (the current illustrator is Craig MacIntosh). Marciuliano writes and draws the satiric web comic Medium Large. The strip originally ran from April 2004 to January 2007. After a long hiatus, the site was revamped and new strips began appearing each weekday on May 27, 2008. He also writes the blog/performance series Conversations with Dad and the blog Francesco Explains It All. He writes for the PBS television series Seemore's Playhouse, for which he won two 2007 Regional Daytime Emmy Awards.
Marciuliano was hired to work on Sally Forth after strip creator Greg Howard retired from his writing duties. His work on the syndicated strip is in keeping with the strip's family-friendly and relatively traditional history. His other work is much more irreverent, edgy, and occasionally foul-mouthed, something that often comes as a surprise to those familiar with Sally Forth. He is also an enthusiastic and well-received participant in online community discussions on Sally Forth in particular and comics in general, including Gene Weingarten's online chats at the Washington Post Web site, and in the comments section of the Comics Curmudgeon blog.
He was a featured panelist at Comicon New York 2007-2009 at the Jacob Javits Center in Manhattan.
He is a contributing writer to The Onion News Network.
He lives in New York City.
