The Curie Society

An action-adventure original graphic novel, The Curie Society follows a team of young women recruited by an elite secret society--originally founded by Marie Curie--with the mission of supporting the most brilliant female scientists in the world. The heroines of the Curie Society use their smarts, gumption, and cutting-edge technology to protect the world from rogue scientists with nefarious plans. Readers will follow recruits Simone, Taj, and Maya as they decipher secret codes, clone extinct animals, develop autonomous robots, and go on high-stakes missions.

After many years as an executive in the entertainment industry, Heather Einhorn (Co-Creator) made the leap to co-found Einhorn’s Epic Productions so she could create stories showcasing heroic women characters, including the popular scripted podcasts Daughters of DC and Lethal Lit: A Tig Torres Mystery. Adam Staffaroni (Co-Creator) is a storyteller at home in a variety of different media, including comics, audio drama, and more. He co-created the scripted podcasts Daughters of DC and Lethal Lit: A Tig Torres Mystery, has edited award-winning comics series, and holds degrees from Dartmouth College and The Center for Cartoon Studies.

Moderator Ryan North is the New York Times-bestselling and Eisner-winning writer whose recent work includes the non-fiction How To Invent Everything: A Survival Guide for the Stranded Time Traveller, the semi-fictional graphic novel adaptation of Kurt Vonnegut's Slaughterhouse-Five, and the so-far-fictional Unbeatable Squirrel Girl series for Marvel. He's also twice collaborated with William Shakespeare on choose-your-own-path versions of his plays. He lives in Toronto, where he writes for video games, television, and his long-running webcomic Dinosaur Comics, and he once messed up walking his dog so badly it made the news. (We remember this.)
