Baltimore Comic-Con is thrilled to welcome writer Shea Fontana as a guest on Saturday of our 2019 event at the Baltimore Convention Center in the Inner Harbor on October 18-20th.
Shea Fontana is a writer for film, television, and graphic novels. Her credits include DC Super Hero Girls animated shorts, TV specials, movies, and graphic novels; Polly Pocket, Doc McStuffins, The 7D, Whisker Haven Tales with the Palace Pets, Dorothy and the Wizard of Oz, the Muppet Babies series; two Disney on Ice shows; and the feature film, Crowning Jules. She has also written for top comic titles, including Justice League, Wonder Woman, and Batman: Overdrive (coming soon).
Her DC Super Hero Girls graphic novels have been New York Times Best Sellers. Her debut graphic novel, Finals Crisis, was honored with Diamond’s 2016 Gem Award for Best All-Ages Graphic Novel, and DC Super Hero Girls: Past Times at Super Hero High won the 2017 Gem Award for Best All-Ages Graphic Novel as well as the Comixology Reader’s Pick award for Best All-Ages Graphic Novel of 2017. DC Super Hero Girls was also the winner of the Best Kids Comic or Graphic Novel at the 2018 Ringo Awards, garnering votes against the largest number of competitors from any category on the 2018 ballot.
“It is an absolute honor to have Shea joining us this year,” said Marc Nathan, show promoter for the Baltimore Comic-Con. “Her work is such a huge hit with the kids, both in comics and television, and her work is amazingly well-received in general. We couldn’t be happier!”
