Jen Vaughn Leaves Fantagraphics For Her Own Comics

photobySoniaHarris.jpgTom Spurgeon interviewed someone who we have seen as the face of Fantagraphics Books at many a show, Jen Vaughn, on her decision to hand in her notice to work on her own comic books full time.

But on what comics? Well she works in a studio with The Walking Dead's Stefano Gaudiano, Star WarsBrian Thies, and Jonah Hex's Moritat, the latter two who are both working on creator owned titles now.

Probably working in the aforementioned studio with Gaudiano, Moritat, and Thies. I'm inking two mainstream books and that news will be out soon. They are rad as hell and I'm working with great creative teams, I adore the pencillers especially. Anyone who follows me on Twitter (@thejenya) can hazard a guess.

Could I suggest Brandon Graham? Or is that too obvious?

Meanwhile, Ryan K. Lindsay is writing a one-shot comic for me about power struggles, teens and more; can't wait to sink my teeth in his script. Kevin Church promised me a space epic. My own ideas have been bubbling up for a bit so I may throw a thing or two out in the world.

Oh oh oh… also, I have the pleasure of working on a menstruation comic with the Menstrupedia people, who helped raise awareness and break the taboo about speaking about menstruation in India. Rajat Mittal hired me and I got to pick my creative team.

So… probably not Spider-Man then…
