Introducing our new contributors!

Girls Read Comics is a labor of love, and part of what has made it grow so much and keeps it fun for me is including my friends in all our shenanigans. Today, I’d like to introduce our three new contributors to the site: Leshia, Scott, and Sarah.

Meet the team under the jump!

leshiabioLeshia | @leshiaaimee

My name is Leshia, and I’m a 25-year-old media junkie holed way up in the wilds of Northern Alberta, though I try to escape to civilization as often as I can. Being gifted a box of battered ’80s X-Men comics as a child started a lifetime love affair with all things Marvel, and we haven’t looked back since, no we haven’t. More recently, I’ve developed an inexplicable obsession with Archie Comics that continues to baffle all those around me. Current favourites are Afterlife with Archie, All-New X-Factor, Rat Queens, Sex Criminals, and everything to do with the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

I do have a Tumblr, though I remain hard-pressed to figure out why anyone follows it.

I’m Scott, a 31 year old fake geek guy living way down in New Zealand who was enabled into this whole comics thing by the women in my life. I work in television and consequently watch entirely too much of it, in between which I indulge my various obsessions with Marvel’s Ultimate Universe — Ultimate Jessica Drew, the bromance of Thor and Antonio-yes-his-name-is-Antonio-in-1610 Stark — and also the cinematic one because, obviously. And 616. So all of it, really. Other faves include Rucka’s Batwoman run, Saga, Rat Queens, Wolverine writers who don’t use the word “canucklehead,” and Afterlife With Archie despite never having read an Archie comic in my life, like, does it say Jughead on his birth certificate? In love with the art of Fiona Staples, Sara Pichelli, and David Marquez, among others. I have never played a dude Shepard past the first Citadel section, Jennifer Hale 5eva.

sarahbioSarah | @contrastcomics

Howdy! My name is Sarah, and I’m a mid-twenties media geek currently based in Eastern Canada. A lifelong fan of superheroes thanks to various cartoon incarnations of Spider-Man (not to mention the DCAU), I’ve been a voracious reader of comics for over ten years. While I’m mostly inclined to Make Mine Marvel, I have a real fondness for DC’s own Damian Wayne, and have recently been dipping my toes back into Vertigo and Image Comics after some time away. I went through a two year period of reading almost everything Marvel Comics published, but have since cut down due to time and budget constraints. Current favourites include: Waid & Samnee’s Daredevil, Aaron’s Thor: God of Thunder, Soule’s She-Hulk, Tomasi’s Batman and Robin, and Fraction’s Hawkeye. 

I have a seldom used Tumblr, if you are so inclined.
