I've been a fan of Valerie D'Orazio's writing since the days of her Occasional Superheroine blog. It wasn't that it was just a vicious attack on the underbelly of comic books, calling out extreme sexism and sexual harassment long before such a thing was de rigeur. It was that the articles were just so well written, combining tragedy and comedy.
Since then, there have been less prominent work. Her MTV Geek work, while very professional, didn't use her unique voice. We got a Punisher book and few short X-Men stories, but her Cloak And Dagger series, announced by Marvel, never saw publication. But now, things seem to be going her way a little more.
There's the free release of Occasional Superheroine.
From Bluewater, there's Beyond: Edward Snowden
There's another on the curse of the Joker, and clown history in Beyond: The Joker, Man Who Laughs .
Which handily comes out a week before the Batman: Death of the Family Book and Joker Mask Set.
There's the new webseries drawn by Bobby Timony, The Horror Lovers. asking what if the Marx Brothers ran the Roger Corman film studio…
And there's this still to come.
