Magdalene Visaggio is the Eisner and GLAAD Media Award-nominated writer of Eternity Girl, Morning in America, and Kim & Kim. Growing up in Richmond, Virginia, she moved to NYC after college and abandoned plans to join the clergy to write comic books where people hit each other with guitars. Visaggio came to wider prominence in the comic book industry with the limited series Kim & Kim from Black Mask Studios. The series was nominated for the 2017 Eisner Award for Best Limited Series and GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding Comic Book. The success led to Visaggio signing a three-book deal with Black Mask Studios for her next three projects: Quantum Teens Are Go, Kim & Kim: Love is a Battlefield and Sex Death Revolution. In 2017, she was chosen to take part in DC Comics’ Writer Workshop program following her Eisner nomination for Kim & Kim. Her first book with DC, Eternity Girl, was released in 2018 to critical acclaim/confusion. It’s a weird book. In 2018 her graphic novel The Ojja-Wojja: A Teenage Nightmare was bought by HarperCollins imprint Balzer + Bray. Her first graphic novel with HarperCollins is expected in Fall 2022. A transgender woman, Visaggio transitioned in 2016.
