OEM/Dark Horse Comics

The person in charge of keeping Oregon informed of earthquake hazards has a side job writing comic books. 

Check that; writing comic books is PART of her job. 

Althea Rizzo is the author of a comic story on how Oregonians can prepare for, and survive, a tsunami. 

This is the second comic book collaboration between Oregon's emergency management agency and Dark Horse Comics, based in Milwaukie.  Althea Rizzo, whose actual title is Geologic Hazards Coordinator, visits to talk about the project with Shantel LaRocque, an Assistant Editor with Dark Horse Comics.
