ComicsAlliance Hire This Woman Rachel Deering

In the overwhelmingly male comic book industry, it has been a challenge for some editors and readers to see the ever growing number of talented women currently trying to make a name for themselves. With that in mind, ComicsAlliance offers Hire This Woman, a recurring feature designed for comics readers as well as editors and other professionals, where we shine the spotlight on a female comics pro on the ascendance. Some of these women will be at the very beginning of their careers, while others will be more experienced but not yet “household names.”

Our subject this week is writer, editor, and letterer Rachel Deering, whose work CA readers have seen in the Kickstarter hit Womanthologyher self-published lesbian werewolf epic Anathema, and Valiant's Shadowman, which she has lettered. Her next writing project is Relic, coming soon from Monkeybrain Comics.

Edison Rex #10

Every month Monkeybrain's Chris Roberson teams with artist Dennis Culver to simultaneously tell original stories and pay homage to some of their favorite comic book concepts in Edison Rex, the ongoing digital-first series that follows the adventures of a genius supercriminal who is vindicated and changes his ways once he proves his world's supposed greatest protector was the bigger bad guy all along. Last month, for example, saw the book's cast shuffled through a multiverse of comic book eras as vividly conveyed by Culver's shifting aesthetics and illustration styles. Today in Edison Rex #10 as Rex furthers his efforts to gain the public's trust as a hero, he faces some backlash from his former peers in the supervillain group known as The Warmongers - each of which are designed to pay homage to some of the most iconic villains in comics and beyond. Monkeybrain and Culver have provided CA with a preview of the issue, plus an extensive first-look at Culver's Warmongers character designs. Click through for all the evil goodness.
