NYCC 2015 - Interview with Alex de Campi
Alex de Campi is well known for her 2005 mini-series Smoke (published by IDW Publishing, art by Igor Kordey), which was nominated for the Eisner Award for Best Limited Series, and her 2006 manga series Kat & Mouse (published by Tokyopop, art by Federica Manfredi). Some of De Campi's work falls outside the superhero genre, with Smoke being a political thriller, and Kat & Mouse detailing the adventures of two mystery-solving high school students (a "CSI for tweens"); she has published work for children (e.g. Agent Boo) and for the European market (e.g. her French language sci-noir series Messiah Complex).
Her other works includes the Valentine mobile comic, which was the main focus of her column "Uncanny Valleygirl" at the comics industry website Bleeding Cool. and Grindhouse comics for Dark Horse.
In April 2015, she launched an ongoing thriller at Image Comics titled No Mercy with Carla Speed McNeil.
She's also written a two-issue Wonder Woman story, among other comics.
The British Science Fiction Association's journal Vector praised DeCampi's work Grindhouse as one of six groundbreaking science fiction works in the comics medium, and declared "...If science fiction was ever a male genre, and comics ever a male medium, de Campi is the saboteur extraordinaire."
De Campi is a filmmaker, directing a number of music videos, including the video for Amanda Palmer's "Leeds United", the animated video for Flipron's "Raindrops Keep Falling On The Dead" (which was featured at the 2008 Marfa Film Festival, and SXSW in 2007), The Real Tuesday Weld feat The Puppini Sisters' "Apart of Me" (shown at Soho Shorts in 2008) and for The Schema's "Those Rules You Made", which made it to number 1 music video worldwide in YouTube in August 2007. She has given a "BBC Two Masterclass" on shooting videos, for Blast (a BBC initiative to encourage creativity in young people), focusing on her October 2007 video for The Real Tuesday Weld versus the Puppini Sisters.
