Coming From Valerie D'Orazio – Edward Snowden, The Joker And A Marx Sister

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 releasea20791a1459a027f34b051_l of Occasional Superheroine.

From Bluewater, there's Beyond: Edward Snowden
