Nilah Magruder is an award-winning writer, illustrator, and storyboard artist. She has received the inaugural Dwayne McDuffie Award for diversity, in recognition for her web comic M.F.K. In addition to comics, she has illustrated for children's books, film, and commercial television as well as Disney and DreamWorks.
Magruder's protagonist displays an emotional range that matches the beats of the quest, from excitement and determination to anger, boredom, and dismay, and young children will feel them in tandem.
