Erika Peterman

E.’s love affair with the spinner rack dates back to the Carter Administration, as in Jimmy and Lynda. Raised on Archie, pre-Crisis DC and the Star Wars trilogy, E. holds comics partly to blame for her decision to pursue a journalism career. She is proud of the fact that her kids can identify each Robin, though her non-geek spouse has yet to learn. Whether on deadline or the treadmill, she has been known to say, “Do. Or do not. There is no try.”
