Becky Hawkins (co-plotter and artist) spent much of her 20s traveling the world as a cruise ship musician. Now she makes comics in Portland with her tiny cartoon sidekick, Shoulder Angel. She is mostly known for doing watercolor cartoons on postcards. Aside from self-publishing at frenchtoastcomix.com, her work has appeared in Women’s Review of Books and anthologies such as The Strumpet, So Buttons, and Tankadere.
She was planning to stick with autobio and travel stories, but when local cartoonist Barry Deutsch asked her to collaborate on a 1940s lesbian superhero series, how could she say no?
