I am Jamie S. Rich. I have been an editor and am currently a freelance writer. May 2014 marks twenty years of earning a living as a comic book professional.
The first official review of my work was given to me by Jo Duffy when she worked at Marvel Comics. I was 14.
My first paying job in the industry came years later when Diana Schutz hired me to be her assistant at Dark Horse. I was 21.
Joëlle Jones drew the first original graphic novel I ever wrote. I was 34.
The best-selling comic book of my career so far was drawn by Megan Levens, who was also the one who initiated the idea. I am 41.
In short, my entire professional career in the comic book industry is because of women.
Hell, Gina Gagliano at First:Second gave me this T-shirt.
I am she as you are he as you are me and we are all comics together. (Goo goo g’joob)

Don’t you forget about me.
You may forget some things about the 1980s, but you will never forget the girl you made that mixtape for.
