Since then, she has worked on a number of high profile projects spanning a variety of genres. Her works include Vampirella, Painkiller Jane, as well as creator-owned projects such as Gatecrasher (with co-creators Jimmy Palmiotti and Mark Waid) and The Pro (with co-creators Jimmy Palmiotti and Garth Ennis). Her work for DC Comics includes CODENAME- KNOCKOUT, BIRDS OF PREY, TERRA, a well-regarded run on POWER GIRL, and BEFORE WATCHMEN- SILK SPECTRE. Amanda, along with her artist/writer/husband, Jimmy Palmiotti, and writer Justin Gray currently work together via PaperFilms, a multimedia entertainment studio engaged in screenwriting, art production and development.
