First up: Weirdest by Heather Nuhfer, who’s written Wonder Woman, Scooby-Doo and My Little Pony comics. Her Universe founder Ashley Eckstein, best known for voicing Ahsoka in Star Wars: Clone Wars, reads every single submission and talks to fans at conventions to find out what they’re interested in reading. Eckstein’s fan base, as well as her passion for promoting these books, is a huge selling point, according to Nuhfer. [New York Times]
