Patrick Alexander (Reid) is an Australian cartoonist.

Alexander is known for his creations, Raymondo Person,[1] The Wraith, Pink Chickens, which ran for thirteen issues of the Australian kids magazine, Mania[1][2] from 2001 until 2002 before being replaced by Tobias & Jube [1] which continued in the kids magazine, Krash between 2005 and 2006. Alexander then moved to Sydney and was employed as a deputy editor for Total Gamer.[1]

Alexander then was employed by Eegra, a video gaming website, to produce a weekly web comic.[1]

In 2011 a copy of Alexander's AAAAAAAH[1] received a degree of popularity at the Dark Horse Comics offices, which led the publisher Mike Richardson to engage him to work for them.[3][4][5] Alexander's creations have appeared in Dark Horse Presents #1[6] (April 2011 -AAAAAAAH and Personally Quiz), #2 (June 2011 - The Wraith); #3 (August 2011 - Indecisive Man) and #4 (September 2011 - Teenagers).[7][8] Alexander has described The Wraith as a character "partly based on Othello, although with some changes and additions".[9] More recently his works were included in Dark Horse Presents #22 (March 2012 - Villianman); #26 (July 2013 - Steggy Wilmot and Spimps); #28 (September 2013 - Mrs Plopsworth's Kitchen) which is described as "somehow manages to be adorable and disturbing at the same time, although words like 'surreal', 'endearing', 'hilarious', and 'grotesque' could apply as well.";[10] and #36 (May 2013 - Bunbun and Sadhead and Job Interview).
