I'm a writer, of comic books mostly. I live in Portland, OR, with my husband, writer Matt Fraction and our kids, Henry Leo and Tallulah Louise.
I'm working on a book called Pretty Deadly with artist Emma Rios. It'll be out October 23, 2013 from Image comics.
I also write Captain Marvel and Avengers Assemble for Marvel and Ghost for Dark Horse Comics.
For a more extensive and detailed CV, see books.
I don't sell my books directly, I'm afraid. Try your local comic book shop, or my Amazon Author Page.
Digital comics? Find me on Comixology. Ghost isn't available on Comixology, but you can get it straight from Dark Horse Digital here.

Anonymous said:hello! gosh i feel so dumb for asking this, but if it's not too much trouble, do you mind explaining the "these are not the droids you're looking for" joke in captain marvel? several months later and i still can't wrap my mind around it. i think i have a vague idea of what it is though. anyway, thank you for your time!
Oh! It’s a joke based on a well known scene from Star Wars. If you aren’t familiar with the Star...

Ever since I told her Kelly Sue liked what she’d said about Captain Marvel Aeris has wanted to meet her — “the writer of Captain Marvel! The REAL one!!!” We got in line for the panel an hour early to make sure we got in. We got to be a part of a community — Aeris stood on her chair when Kelly Sue asked the Carol Corps to stand up. And when we got to the stage afterwards the crowd parted and Kelly Sue snatched her up into a hug and I don’t know which was more happy in that moment. Janet Lee and Emily Shaw also came over to talk to Aeris about being the real live Kit; when asked what her favourite part of school is Aeris answered “Math” and both encouraged this and told her Carol must be good at math to be a pilot. As the mother of two daughters who are interested in science and math, THANK YOU. No one encouraged my interests in science when I was a teen girl so I never pursued them.
During the panel, preview art of Captain Marvel #17 featuring Kit came on screen and Aeris said (loud enough for the surrounding row to smile about it) “I’m in those pictures up there!” This is what we mean when we talk about wanting representation in our stories. We want a full and complete spectrum so every child can look up on the screen and say I’m in those pictures up there.
Thank you, all of you, for giving Aeris the very best afternoon.
