On Fresh is the Word, we like to deliver wisdom through great stories from the minds of bright creatives of pop culture. Through those stories, we like to dissect the journey of our guests and present actionable lessons and advice for our listeners no matter what career or avenue of artistry they pursue.

This week’s guests is no stranger to the comic book world and her name is Heather Antos. She was just named Editor at Valiant Comics, but before that, she was Editor-In-Chief much of last year at the esports site Unikrn along with her time as Associate Editor at Marvel where she helped launched the Star Wars series and she was co-creator of Gwenpool. During our interview, we talked about her time at Marvel and Unikrn, along with a ton of knowledge about being an editor and what goes into making good comics. Please note that this interview was done in December when she was still at Unikrn and before she was announced as the Editor at Valiant.

Now at Valiant, it looks like Antos’ first project will be to work with The Wilds and Submerged writer Vita Ayala on Valiant’s new Livewire series. Antos is said to have some project of her own in the works also.

Each episode, the guest is asked to suggest someone from their life/career that should be on Fresh is the Word that would have good stories to tell. Antos chose Fabian Nicieza, the creator of Deadpool.
