About the Artist
Emma Ríos is a comic book creator based in A Coruña, Spain.

An architect major, her love to comics made her combine her work and studies with small press and self–publishing in Spain since her early teens. Her wish to dedicate professionally to comics allowed her to leave her work as an architect and work on comics full–time for almost six years already, having started at Boom!Studios, then Marvel and now Image Comics.

Her last book is called Pretty Deadly, a supernatural western in which she collaborates with Kelly Sue DeConnick.
