Previously On Comics: Rising Stars

Good morning! I don’t know about you but it’s been another of those weekends that just aren’t long enough for me.

For our most important news item, last week had some great news on the Former-WWACers-moving-up front:

  • Kelly Kanayama has joined the Scottish BAME Writer’s Network as their Admin and Media Support! Joining alongside her are Mae Diansangu and Titilayo Farukuoye as Programme Managers. The SBWN is about to know so much about the Punisher, y’all. So much!
  • Also, a big congratulations to Jazmine Joyner for her new position as Associate Editor for IDW Publishing!

Kelly and Jaz both have done some amazing work with us here at WWAC, and it’s pretty cool to see their names in lights. Congratulations to the both of you!
