Bio: Comics are a lifelong love, but a side profession for Rachel Pollack, who has authored 22 books. A recent novel, Godmother Night, won the World Fantasy Award. A contemporary story based on Grimm's Fairy Tales, it featured two generations of lesbians, and Death, who is pictured in the story as a short middle-aged woman attended by five young women on motorcycles.
Rachel has also written extensively on Tarot cards, including the book for The Vertigo Tarot. Among her favorite projects in her career, her run on DC/Vertigo's Doom Patrol stands out very strongly. "I tried to explore people's anxieties about their bodies, their sexuality, and their identity," she said.

And every year the booth is packed with even more great stuff; a particularly fun addition this year is an assortment of t-shirts, including Glen Hanson's homage to the Golden Girls.
