Over the last several years, Vertigo has revived several forgotten anthology titles with good results: Strange Adventures, Mystery in Space, The Witching Hour and Time Warp.

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.”
Today we're speaking with writer and self-publisher Amy Chu. Chu has written a few short stories in collaboration with creators like Larry Hama, CP Wilson III, Steve McNiven, and Janet K. Lee, as well as self-published her own comics under the name Alpha Girl Comics.
