New York City Comic Con may have happened more than a month ago but Multiversity Comics’s coverage of the East Coast’s largest comics and pop culture event is just getting going. Multiversity sent 14 of our staff to the event this year for interviews, panel reports, and more so expect lots more to come over the next few weeks. This way, even if you couldn’t make it yourself, you can still see the con through our eyes.

Cecil Castellucci first came to many folks’ attention with “Shade, the Changing Girl,” one of the launch books for Gerard Way’s ‘Young Animal’ imprint. Earlier this year, she penned “Female Furies,” a story set on Apokolips that tells the story of Big Barda’s time as a Fury, and how and why she, eventually, left. Cecil is now writing “Batgirl,” where Barbara Gordon is wrestling with her past as Oracle in unexpected ways.

Thanks for Cecil for making some time for us at NYCC. You can follow Cecil on Twitter (@misscecil), and make sure to pick up the collected editions of “Shade, the Changing Girl,” “Shade, the Changing Woman,” and “Female Furies,” as well as the ongoing adventures of Babs in “Batgirl.”
