    Jody Houser Talks Faith with Graphic Policy Radio

    in Pop Culture

    Faith is the first comic to star a plus-sized superhero! Graphic Policy Radio welcomes special guest, writer Jody Houser who is part of the team at Valiant Comics bringing Faith to life in one of the year's most anticipated comics.


    Jody Houser earned her MFA in Creative Writing at Emerson College in Boston, where she completed her master's thesis in screenwriting and was a winner of the Rod Parker Fellowship for Playwriting.


    She began experimenting with webcomics in 2006 and is the creator behind the webcomic Cupcake POW!, which has updated weekly since 2010 and is currently available on comiXology Submit.


    Jody has been a contributing writer to numerous comic anthologies including Womanthology: Heroic and Womanthology: Space from IDW, CMYK: Magenta from Vertigo, and Avengers: No More Bullying from Marvel, as well as Dead Roots and Rise: Comics Against Bullying. Recently, Jody has written Orphan Black for IDW and Agent May for Marvel.


    Faith was the break out star of Valiant's Harbinger. A psionically gifted “psiot” she has always aspired to greatness. Now this once-ordinary teenager is taking control of her destiny and becoming the hard-hitting hero she’s always known she can be – complete with a mild-mannered secret identity, unsuspecting colleagues, and a day job as a reporter that routinely throws her into harm’s way! Well, at least she thought it would… When she’s not typing up listicles about cat videos, Faith makes a secret transformation to patrol the night as the City of Angels’ own leading superhero – the sky-soaring Zephyr! But flying solo is going to be tougher than she ever thought.

    New York Times bestselling and award-winning writer Marjorie Liu is best known for her fiction and comic books. She teaches comic book writing at MIT, and she leads a class on Popular Fiction at the Voices of Our Nation (VONA) workshop. 


    Ms. Liu is a highly celebrated comic book writer. Her extensive work with Marvel includes the bestselling Dark Wolverine series, NYX: No Way Home, X-23, and Black Widow: The Name of the Rose. She received national media attention for Astonishing X-Men, which featured the gay wedding of X-Man Northstar and was subsequently nominated for a GLAAD Media Award for outstanding media images of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community. Ms. Liu also wrote the story for the animated film, Avengers Confidential: Black Widow and Punisher, which was produced by Marvel, Sony Pictures Entertainment (Japan) Inc., and Madhouse Inc.

The series is set in an alternate, matriarchal 1920’s Asia and follows a girl’s struggle to survive the trauma of war. With a cast of girls and monsters and set against a richly imagined aesthetic of art deco-inflected steampunk, the first issue was an instant hit.

    Jasmine Christine Scott: Author, Graphic Illustrator, Maid, Cook, and More

    in Writing

    Jasmine Christine Scott, a/k/a JCS, the author, was born and raised in Denver, Colorado, where she still resides. As the mother of three, she is also a “maid, cook, playground, encyclopedia, teacher, and lover”, in her own words. With the luxury of being a stay-at-home Mom, she is allowed the liberty to write, illustrate, and promote to her best abilities.


    Her first love is art. In the beginning, her intention was to illustrate for graphic novels, but having character composite sketches works just fine for her. However, Epic Fantasy and Sci Fi will always be a must. It seems, that no matter what genre one reads from, there are lackluster books.


    To insure she didn't make that mistake, she joined what used to be known as Authonomy.com, a British-based website that allowed the opportunity to be published by Harper Collins. It didn't work out because those running things were only interested in Romance and Erotica, but, she soon learned that her writing is truly a gem.


    Her first released series did well, with the exception that she did not release her third book from The Anguished Immortals Trilogy. Then, my first book to my second series did so well, it almost seemed like there was nothing that could be said. For three weeks, Bleeding Stars and Paper Hearts-Adrianna is Mine sat at the number 7 spot for 3 weeks, and briefly, before she pulled the book due to it being published, it stayed at number 1 for a week. According to JCS, “That's an accomplishment for a site like that.”
