ABOUT “CORINNE MORGAN, CORBIE”
Corinne Morgan has always gone out of her way to stay out of trouble. All she wants is to graduate from the notoriously brutal Anna Dale Academy in one piece. Unfortunately, her headmistress seems out to get her – and a vicious trio of students known as The I.C. are too!
All this would be enough for anyone to handle, but things get a million times crazier when Corinne acquires a crystal ball that revives her ancestor, an Irish war goddess with her own plans for revenge and in need of a new body.
Forced to co-exist with a second persona in her own head, Corinne draws upon her own resourcefulness and her father’s business connections. She secretly builds a suit of impenetrable high-tech armor that provides her with the strength of sixteen 16 year-old girls. Coupled with the supernatural abilities now bestowed upon her – most notably a set of spectral wings and the power of flight – she assumes the alias Corbie, and plans to strike back against the I.C. In doing so, she sets off a chain reaction of events that leads to her battling a wild array of super-powered villains, from rival gods to swamp ogres.
Whether it’s on her home turf of Beverly Hills, in the darkest depths of the Irish countryside, or in other dimensions, Corbie goes toe-to-toe with the forces of darkness while, as Corinne, she continues to face the daily challenges of a highly sensitive teenager in an often overwhelming world.
About the Author
John Porter (INFJ / enneagram 4) is the Xennial writer and artist behind “Corinne Morgan, Corbie”. His childhood was spent watching commercialized eighties kidvid and reading a plethora of licensed comics, which at six led him to want to pick up a pencil and begin making sequential stories of his own.
In the early 2010s, John was further inspired by the earliest Stan Lee issues of The Amazing Spider-Man (pencilled by Steve Ditko and later John Romita), as well as Lee’s work on Daredevil with Gene Colan, to create a new superhero title for introverts and highly sensitive people (HSPs). After years of stop-start development, this project was eventually refined into what would become Corinne Morgan, Corbie, and the first issue was made available for download in October 2018.
John currently resides in a tiny village in the North East of Scotland, in a house ready to buckle under the weight of an army of vintage Transformers toys and the occasional Ninja Turtle. When he’s not drawing, he can be found on his personal Twitter account (@JohnPorterCMC) talking about old TV commercials and communicating almost entirely via Simpsons references.
