The Event will Spotlight Chu's Work in Celebration of "Women in Comics Month"

March 15, 2017, Mt. Laurel, NJ: Dynamite Entertainment, home to some of the hottest series and titles in the comic industry, has arranged for the critically-acclaimed writer and creator Amy Chu to participate in her first Reddit IAmA! The event, which will highlight the role of women in the comic book industry in celebration of Women in Comic's Month, will take place on Thursday, March 16th between 12 and 1:30 p.m. EST. Fans of Amy Chu, or comics in general, are invited during this time to ask their most pressing questions regarding her work and the industry!

"I'm really excited to discuss my work with the Reddit community, especially during Women in Comics Month," offered Chu. "I hope the work I do encourages more people to explore a career in comics, but also helps open a door for young women who many not have thought a career in comics possible!"

"Amy Chu is simply amazing. She's incredibly creative, so driven, and such a joy to work with," says Nick Barrucci, CEO and Publisher of Dynamite Entertainment. "Our team has been elated with the energy she brings to her scripts, both on our two rockin' KISS series and Red Sonja, one of Dynamite's cornerstone brands. Fans love her, too - we're thrilled that she'll be reaching out to them through computer screens, providing insight into her work. It should be an eye-opening experience for the comic book community!"
