Erica Schultz is an American comic book writer, letterer and editor best known for her writing on the Swords of Sorrow series (Dynamite Entertainment) and for her self published creator-owned crime series, M3 (Vice Press).

In 2012, Schultz and M3 co-creator Vicente Alcázar won the Best Comic Book award at the Burbank International Film Festival. Schultz scripted Marvel’s original graphic novel, Revenge: The Secret Origin of Emily Thorne. She also served as a founding co-editor on RISE: Comics Against Bullying published by Northwest Press, contributing a story of her own titled “Brothers In Arms.” Schultz self-published a quirky, time-travel story titled The Unauthorized Biography of Winston Churchill: A Documentary, with artist Claire Connelly.

In 2015, Schultz was chosen by Gail Simone as one of the many female writers to be involved with the Swords of Sorrow crossover series. Schultz wrote the Swords of Sorrow: Black Sparrow & Lady Zorro one-shot and co-wrote the Swords of Sorrow: Masquerade & Kato one-shot with G. Willow Wilson. Also in 2015, Schultz wrote a story titled “Pop Goes the World” for the Vertigo Comics anthology Vertigo Quarterly: SFX #1, and she wrote “A Seminal Vintage” for Red Stylo Media/Action Lab’s The 27 Club: A Comic Anthology. Schultz teamed up again with artist Connelly to self-publish the farmyard dark comedy/romance Cheese: A Love Story.
