She recently edited a book about Poetry Comics with artist Tom Humberstone, called Over the Line: An Introduction to Poetry Comics and has run various workshops for poets and artists to work together.
Alan Moore said about the book:
“This is that spine-tingling moment when two attractive and sophisticated forms, both admired for their rhythm and sense of timing, eye each other across the cultural dance floor… I really can’t recommend this venture highly enough.”
Chrissy is currently the editor of various comics, including the New York Times bestselling series The Wicked + The Divine.
She has also published various poetry pamphlets and criticism, including
Flying into the Bear (HappenStance Press, 2013),
