If you are not familiar with comics writer extraordinaire Amy Chu, you should be. If you are, then we will endeavor to share with you some great tidbits about her writing, current projects, and other passions.
We were able to catch up with Amy at Awesome-Con in Washington, DC back at the end of April. In the past five years, she has exploded into comics and has worked for DC, Marvel, Dynamite, Lion Forge, and more. Her titles include Girls Night Out, Poison Ivy, Red Sonja, Dejah Thoris, The Green Hornet, Summit, KISS, and more. Recently, Sea Sirens, her original graphic novel with Janet Lee was published by Viking Books.
Amy has also just been announced as part of the faculty for the Kubert School starting this fall. You can see the press release here.
Besides comics, Amy Chu has led an amazing life that included suing her school under Title IX to be allowed to play on the boys’ soccer team in high school. She holds degrees from both MIT and Harvard. She is also the mother to two wonderful boys. [I’ve met them. They are good kids.]
Amy is regular on the comic convention scene. We often wonder how she has time to do all she does, and yet she manages to do it all. If you see her at a Con, she will most likely appreciate coffee and donuts, as her Twitter motto these days includes “#DonutKiller”
Here is just some fantastic cosplay that we saw at Awesome-Con this year.
It was diverse and ubiquitous. There were some really unique an intricate designs that we saw on the floor this year in Washington. We hope you enjoy these and appreciate the effort put into making these costumes.
