Leeanne M. Krecic, known to her fans as “Mongie,” is the creator behind the Eisner-nominated and Amazon bestselling webcomic phenomenon, Let’s Play. With a staggering global subscriber count of over 5 million, Let’s Play is available in English, French, Spanish, and German via the webcomic platform WEBTOON. Moreover, Let’s Play’s graphic novel collections have made their mark as two of the top 30 all-time Kickstarters in the Comics category, published by Rocketship Entertainment.
In 2021, Allnighter (known for Final Fantasy and Luther Strode) announced Let’s Play’s upcoming live-action adaptation, signaling yet another milestone in Leeanne’s remarkable career. Her prowess in the industry was recognized with multiple Ringo Award nominations, including Best Cartoonist in 2021 and Best Webcomic for Let’s Play in 2022. Let’s Play was also nominated for an Eisner Award for Best Webcomic in 2019.
Expanding her creativity further, Leeanne is currently working on a dating simulator game for Let’s Play titled “EVERDATE.” This new venture was successfully crowdfunded on Kickstarter, underscoring the considerable support from her fans and the gaming community.
Leeanne is a self-taught artist who has been working as a commissioned freelance artist for over eight years, crafting concept art for tabletop games and book covers. She holds a degree in computer science and previously worked as the head of IT for an internet-based company for eleven years, pivotal in turning it into a multi-million dollar enterprise. Despite her prior successes, Leeanne eventually pursued her true passion and devoted her life to creating comics.
