About The Author

Managing Editor, Community Manager and Podcast Co-Host

Stephanie is [obviously] a comic book fan, but she also considers herself an avid gamer, movie watcher, lover of music, board games fan (although she doesn’t find nearly enough time for them…) and being snarky. Oh, and Twitter. Twitter’s a hobby, right? Stephanie is a purveyor of too many projects and outside of Talking Comics she’s done work for, Agents of Geek, Word of the Nerd, C&G Magazine, Dork Shelf, Misfortune Cookie (her personal blog for words and pictures) and more. She wrote a story for the anthology The Secret Loves of Geek Girls (coming in October 2016 from Dark Horse) and she also runs Toronto Geek Trivia in her home city. She can be found helping out at other “geek” community things around there.

    I’ve only heard a bit during my commute, but, the WW writer you’re thinking of is Allen Heinberg. Looking forward to the rest of the show!

    Great show today! I can’t really put my finger on why it was so good, but I did love the small talk in the beginning, the lightening rounds, books of the week, the discussion of Gotham with Courtney, and the listener questions/answers.
