Amanda Meadows

Comic Book Editor

Third-person time, baby! Amanda Meadows is an Eisner-nominated Editor acquiring adult graphic novels, humor, illustrated books, and general trade at Andrews McMeel Publishing.Previously, she was Senior Editor at Oni-Lion Forge Publishing Group and Limerence Press, its imprint dedicated to sexual wellness, gender studies, and romance in fiction and non-fiction. She and her partner Geoffrey Golden were co-publishers of critically acclaimed indie humor press The Devastator, for which she earned a Publishers Weekly "Rising Star" Honor. She's also co-author of We Don’t Think You’re Racist, and author of The Best American Emails. A perennial "friend of" many podcasts, she can also be heard on Dirt Cheap from Sony and Neon Hum Media.OK it’s me, I'm back! First off, I'm a Black Maghrebi American and pan/bisexual babygirl from Santa Ana, CA. Folks tend to clock my goofy sense of humor, bottomless curiosity, and deep love for weirdos. During a chaotic and alienating ‘90s kidhood, comic books reconnected me to my imagination. Coming of age in the nightmare neocon ‘00s, zines helped me find my voice. These days, I get excited to make OGNs and books with people on the margins of pop culture, folks who endure transformative experiences, and those who question our beliefs about pleasure and power.Me and my partner live on unceded Tongva land (Los Angeles, CD10).
