Amy Reeder (born August 25, 1980), formerly known as Amy Reeder Hadley, is an American comic artist, known for her work on titles such as Fool's Gold, Madame Xanadu, and Batwoman.

Early life[edit]

Amy Reeder was born August 25, 1980. She is originally from Denver, Colorado and obtained a Bachelor of Science in Social Science Teaching.[1]

Career[edit]

Amy Reeder was first discovered through the fourth of Tokyopop's Rising Stars of Manga competitions[2] and went on to write and illustrate the OEL manga Fool's Gold.[3]

Reeder became the lead artist on the Madame Xanadu series from DC Comics' Vertigo imprint, with writer Matt Wagner.[4] In a 2007 interview, she credited editor Brandon Montclare with helping her break into the comics industry.[5] In Spring 2010 DC announced that she would take over alternate art duties for the Batwoman series with J. H. Williams III,[6] in addition to providing variant covers to that title and Supergirl.[7] She then left the Batwoman book due to "creative differences" in the middle of the next story arc.[8][9]

Technique and materials[edit]

In addition to pencils and an electric eraser, Reeder employs a drawing tablet for her work. For her hand-colored work, she uses Copic Multiliners, Copic Markers. Computer programs that she uses for her artwork include Adobe Photoshop, Corel Painter, and ComicWorks.[1]

Personal life[edit]

In addition to creating comics, Reeder also enjoys writing music, singing and sewing.[1]
