BOOM! Studios has hired Samantha Knapp as a Production Design Assistant. Knapp joins the Los Angeles-based company after working recently at an area comic book store chain, Earth-2 Comics.
"I'm thrilled to join BOOM! Studios! It's something I've wanted to do for a long time, and I've been so excited to watch the way BOOM! has grown and changed over the years," Knapp told Newsarama. "Their dedication to giving a voice to people who haven't had a chance up until now, is something I greatly respect and identify with."
As a writer, Knapp wrote a story in BOOM!'s Over the Garden Wall 2017 Special and co-wrote Z2 Comics' Welcome to Showside. She graduated with a Bachelor's in Fine Arts for Sequential art from the Savannah College of Art & Design.
"The staff at BOOM! Studios is compiled of some truly wonderful and talented people; Kara Leopard (Production Design) and Whitney Leopard (Editor) are comics power houses, and Spencer Simpson (Sales Manager) is an unstoppable force, just to name a few," Knapp continued. "I'm honored to be a part of Ross & the team's vision. I'm looking forward to all of the fantastic properties I’ll be helping bring to the masses!"
