Shelly Bond is a comic book editor and the creator of the project called Femme Magnifique. Her name appears in over 900 comics and graphic novels from Neil Gaiman's beloved Sandman series to masterworks by Grant Morrison, Bill Willingham, Darwyn Cooke and Gilbert Hernandez.
Her latest project is FEMME MAGNIFIQUE, a Kickstarter book that she's editing and co-curating with Kristy and Brian Miller of HiFi Colour Design. This graphic novel anthology salutes 50 powerful women in pop, politics, art and science who take names and change the game.
Here is the kickstarter link. I encourage you to kick in and support this cool project. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/hificolourdesign/femme-magnifique
Shelly lives in Los Angeles with her favorite comic book artist/husband, Philip Bond, and their favorite teal-haired son, Spencer. Rumors that she wears five-inch platforms are completely unfounded.
We talked about the world of comics, the role of the editor, a true love story, and of course, tap dancing.
