Around ten years ago, Valerie D’Orazio was at the centre of controversy, after her essay Goodbye To Comics, in which she analysed an industry and culture that seemed to be on the brink of killing her, as well as alleging serious sexual assault by a senior editor at DC comics! where she worked.
Over the last few years, she has headed up the editorial team at MTV Geek, until that blog was recently shut down.
Now, I understand, she is to write a biographical comic book for Bluewater, detailing the life and recent scandal of Edward Snowden, the national security freelancer who pointed out what we probably knew all along, that the NSA has access to all our personal digital information.
Look for more details coming out at NYCC?
