Bio:ERICA SCHULTZ is a Ringo Award nominated comic book writer, letterer, and editor best known for 2018’s Daredevil (Marvel Comics) annual starring Misty Knight and the five time Ringo Award nominated series Forgotten Home (comiXology Originals). She started in the industry as a digital artist and animator on the Astonishing X-Men motion comic “Gifted” from Marvel Comics. She worked on comics production, background art, and ink and color assists for Neal Adams’ Continuity Studios on numerous titles and miniseries like Batman: Odyssey, the re-release of Superman vs. Muhammad Ali, and The Coming of the Supermen for DC Comics, The New Avengers and The First X-Men for Marvel Comics, and Neal Adams’ Blood for Dark Horse Comics. While working at Continuity, Erica met and teamed up with artist Vicente Alcázar to create the award-winning, creator-owned series M3, published by Vices Press. In 2015, she was one of Gail Simone’s hand-picked writers to contribute to the Swords of Sorrow crossover series with Dynamite Entertainment, co-writing a series tie in with G. Willow Wilson as well lettering the entire 21-issue crossover series. In 2016, she was chosen by DC Comics to participate in their pilot program for what became their Talent Development Workshop, collaborating with artist Sonny Liew on a well-received Hawkgirl story. She has written for Marvel, DC, Image, Dynamite, King Features, Capstone Publishing, A Wave Blue World, and Action Lab, as well as contributing to multiple anthologies including Image Comics’ Where We Live anthology for the victims of the Las Vegas shooting (nominated for a 2019 Eisner Award), and The 27 Club: A Comics Anthology published by Red Stylo Media and Action Lab Danger Zone (nominated for a 2016 Harvey Award). Her creator-owned book, Forgotten Home, was nominated for 5 Ringo Awards in 2020 including Best Writer, Best Inker (Marika Cresta), Best Cover Artist (Natasha Alterici), Best Letterer (Cardinal Rae), and Best Series. Erica is a writing instructor at The Kubert School and a former lettering teacher with ComicsExperience.com.

Review: I am currently working with Erica on a five issue comic book series, THE RESURRECTED. I connected with Erica in 2016 because of this website (thanks!). Erica has been an amazing editor; both for my plot outlines and for my scripts (three completed so far). Not only this, but she has helped me, a first time comic writer, understand how the industry works and has also connected me with other collaborators for my project. The ratings I gave her below are not exaggerated...
