My name is Marie Javins.

I am a comic book editor, wandering explorer, and writer. I live in Jersey City, New Jersey, USA. You can also find me here. I’ve told 6 stories. I joined Cowbird on March 28, 2012.

Marie Javins is a writer, comic book creator, traveler, and blogger who alternates between roaming the planet by public bus, overseeing the output of a Kuwait-based superhero comic book company as editor in chief, and writing books entirely unrelated to her day job. She is the author of "Stalking the Wild Dik-Dik: One Woman's Misadventures Across Africa" (Seal Press, 2006).

In 2001, she circumnavigated the world by surface transport live on In 2011, she did it again, but in reverse, this time allowing herself the use of airplanes.

She considers herself a New Yorker but has lived in Australia, Barcelona, Uganda, Namibia, New Jersey, Kuwait, and Cairo since the last time she called Manhattan home, and anyway, she's in Jersey City now which is so much more livable than Avenue B ever was.

She can say "hello," "thank you," and "how much" in seven languages.
