As a comic book journalist, she currently works for Newsarama and has had bylines published from DC Comics, IGN, Fandom, and TV Guide.

And if you’re not familiar with Calamia’s written work then you’ve probably lurked around and engaged with her weekly comic book show on YouTube channel, Comic Uno, which has 15K subscribers.

Kat Calamia has a Bachelor’s degree in Communications and minor in Journalism through Marymount Manhattan and a MFA in Writing and Producing Television from LIU Brooklyn.

A bisexual comic book creator herself, Calamia has previously expressed interest in promoting awareness for Bisexual Creators and Bisexual Comic Book stories.
