Bio: In nearly fourteen years at DC Comics, Patty rose from the position of Representative – Marketing Publications to that of Director – Marketing Communications. While there, she played an integral role in modernizing and broadening DC's external communications.
Currently Patty serves on Prism's Board as Talent and Industry Relations Chair. She also has a few professional projects in development both as a marketing and public relations consultant and as a creative writer.
Seemingly another lifetime ago, she edited much of the work of cult cartoonist Matt Howarth, including Those Annoying Post Bros and Savage Henry, even serving as inspiration for the character Hiroshima. So don't let the smile fool ya'; there's brimstone in that belly.
