Project Description

Amy Chu

Appearing: Friday, Saturday, and Sunday

Amy Chu is a comic book author who runs the comic imprint Alpha Girl Comics as well as writes comics for other publishers. She wrote the six-issue miniseries Poison Ivy: Cycle of Life and Death and a few Wonder Woman issues for DC.

In 2010, she started Alpha Girl Comics when she and her friend, Georgia Lee, discussed the lack of female voices in comics. Chu took a course in creative writing and developed her interest in comics writing from there. She has continued to focus on the lack of representation of women in the comics industry speaking on panels at comic events.

She published three collections of short stories under Alpha Girl Comics titled Girls Night Out from 2012 to 2014. Several were funded through Kickstarter, as well as in 2017, a remaster and collection of all three volumes into paperback format.

Chu has been writing Red Sonja for Dynamite Entertainment since late 2016. She also started working on Dynamite’s KISS in 2016. Chu took over writing duties for Dynamite’s Green Hornet beginning with the 2018 run.

Chu was recognized as a cultural leader of the year, for 2018, by the Corea Image Communications Institute and said she had plans to write a comic in Seoul.
