Marie Javins is a writer, comic book creator, traveler, and blogger who alternates between roaming the planet by public bus, overseeing the output of a Kuwait-based superhero comic book company as editor in chief, and writing books entirely unrelated to her day job. In 2001, she circumnavigated the world by surface transport live on MariesWorldTour.com. Ten years later, she did it in reverse, alone and this time allowing the use of airplanes.
Marie has written a travel narrative (Stalking the Wild Dik-Dik, Seal Press, 2006), a prose novel about Iron Man, and two camping guidebooks.
Known for her work as an editor and colorist at Marvel Comics during the nineties, Marie has also edited and colored for smaller publishing companies. She’s been involved in several independent publishing ventures and teaches digital coloring at New York’s School of Visual Arts.
Originally from Northern Virginia, Marie once considered herself a New Yorker but has lived in Australia, Barcelona, Uganda, Namibia, New Jersey, Kuwait, and Cairo since the last time she called Manhattan home. She’s no longer sure if anywhere or everywhere is home. She can say "hello," "thank you," and "how much" in seven languages.
