Some kids want to grow up to be doctors, or movie stars, or political assassins. Me, I wanted to draw comic books. Not Archie comics, either—superhero comic books. Maybe it was all the heavily muscled guys in spandex…

Around the time I was 15, I realized that as much as I enjoyed drawing (note that I’m saying nothing about the quality of those pics), it was a lot of fun putting words in the characters’ mouths. I didn’t know the term “fanfic” back then, but I started writing stories about the X-Men, Alpha Flight, and the Teen Titans. Didn’t do anything with those stories, other than horrify my mother. She asked why I couldn’t write nice stories, you know, about bunnies. Nope—me, I wanted to write about power. About magic. About hot guys in sp

Jackie’s Recent Updates

“And oil's not supposed to mix with water. But then someone invented mayonnaise, and wham - instant mixing.”
Jackie Kessler, Hell's Belles

“Prove it. I'll measure your words against your actions, and from that I will determine your worth.”
Jackie Kessler, Rage

“If Melissa Miller were an artist, she would have painted the world in vicious streaks of red. Nothing like Picasso's rose period, all soft and cheerful and so optimistic that it made you want to puke. Missy's red phase would have been brutal and bright enough to cut your eyes. Missy's art would have been honest.”
Jackie Kessler, Rage

Bless me!! i need more!! well, wasn't I just tickled pink to see that you plan to continue the plot into a new series, Pit and Paradise!! WOOT!!
