Comics Fetish: Volume 79

Staff Writer

Leah can't remember a time when she wasn't a huge nerd, mostly because she was indoctrinated very early. She was raised in a small New Jersey town near NYC by two immigrant parents and an older brother who mostly just tried to keep her occupied with books and screens. Leah has since moved to the DC metro area and is a Valkyrie at Fantom Comics. When she isn't beneath an avalanche of books, she can be found cooking/baking or hanging out with pets and local woodland creatures. Silver Surfer said she was cute once, and her life has never been the same. Blog: An Extraordinary Gift for Hope Twitter: @ohleahdarling

As a Valkyrie, I couldn’t leave out my favorite tote bag designed by our Valkyrie Prime, Kate Leth. Ladies, use this bag to hold your heaping piles of not-comic-books that you spent all your money on and now must carry home and not read because clearly our tiny little lady hands are not built to hold sequential art.
