Amy Reeder hails from the superhero/action world of comics, working with characters including Madame Xanadu, Supergirl, Wonder Woman, Batwoman, and Moon Girl. You’ll also find her creating independent series like Image’s Rocket Girl…and if you look far back enough, you may even spot a Tokyopop credit in there. She also co-created the new Moon Girl for Marvel, who will soon be starring in her own cartoon series on Disney+. Amy draws interiors and covers, she writes, she colors, and she letters. To her, every part of the process is inextricably linked to relaying her ideas to an audience.
