Amanda Conner started out in comics working on small projects for Marvel and Archie. She had been working as an illustrator for New York ad agencies Kornhauser and Calene and Kidvertisers. She worked on a number of launches and campaigns such as Arm & Hammer, PlaySchool and Nickelodeon, to name a few.
However, loving comic books and cartooning the most, Amanda found herself working for Marvel on their Barbie line (many of her covers were made into designs for the line of Barbie toys) and Disney line (which inlcuded the Gargoyles books). At the same time she was illustrating Soul Searchers & Co. for Claypool Comics and worked on other Marvel projects, such as Excalibur and Suburban Jersey Ninja She-Devils.
She spent several years as penciler on Vampirella, illustrated the bestselling Event Comic Painkiller Jane vs the Darkness and went on to work on Painkiller Jane #0 (the origin book). She also wrote and illustrated a story for Kid Death and Fluffy.
Since then, Conner has worked on many major comic properties, including the DC titles Superman: Lois Lane (1998), Birds of Prey (2002), JSA Classified (2005), Wednesday Comics (2009), Power Girl (2009-2010) and multiple volumes of Harley Quinn.
Conner, Palmiotti, and writer Justin Gray work together via their multimedia entertainment company PaperFilms. The three have collaborated on multiple DC projects.
