Search for 'Valerie D'Orazio' on Amazon

At Acclaim Comics she helped edit Shadowman and Magnus Robot Fighter and at DC Comics she assisted on such titles as Justice League of America and Identity Crisis.

After her 2 1/2 year stint with Acclaim Entertainment under the direction of editors such as, Madeleine Robins, Evan Skolnick, and Fabian Nicieza , D'Orazio joined the DC Comics staff in 2000 as Coordinator in their Creative Services department. In March of 2002, she was promoted to assistant editor for Editorial Art Director Mark Chiarello.

After leaving DC Comics, Valerie began a career as a writer and blogger with a regular feature at Silver Bullet Comics, entitled Kamikaze Girl. Shortly there after, she began her own blog, Occasional Superheroine.

In November of 2006, Valerie erased the former contents of her blog on comics and began posting a frank biographical story of her experiences as a female fan of the superhero genre and her work in the industry entitled Goodbye to Comics. Her story includes many references to sexism in the American comic book industry as well as tales of struggles with her own health.

D'Orazio's blog was widely commented on and discussed in publicaitons and forums related to comic book criticism. Following her internet disclosure and the controversy around her blog, D'Orazio has been asked to speak at various events about the role and position of women in the business of publishing comics. Valerie continues to remark on events relating to comic book marketing and women's issues in her blog.

She is also developing a creator owned title called Vamptopia, an "Anne Rice meets Quentin Tarantino meets Kurt Vonnegut Jr." story which she is looking to adapt into various multi-media. D'Orazio is also involved in film and has had her piece Fathom displayed at the Invisible Film Series hosted by New Vision Cinema and the Millennium Film Workshop.
