Carol Monahan

Carol Monahan is a long time friend of the Professors Fogios. In 2013 she was hired by Studio Foglio as a part-time business manager with part of the proceeds of the successful 'print everything' Kickstarter[1]. Hiring her was the $300,000 stretch goal for this Kickstarter project.

She appeared behind the Comic-Con booth in 2015 .

Studio News for 2019-05-06 (Monday) includes a birthday greeting and congratulations on a successful Cheapass Games book Kickstarter.

Carol was Director of Sales & Logistics at Wizards of the Coast during the early days of Magic: The Gathering, (1993-2000), and is the current Vice President of Cheapass Games, publisher of The Works card game.[2]

Carol is the original Radio play voice of Ferretina.

Rat-stretcher Monahan in 1993

And going even further back.. the 1993 Kaja Foglio/Phil Foglio wedding program credits Carol (a bridesmaid) with publishing Rat: The Magazine for Spontaneous Generation.

She is likely the inspiration for the Girl Genius character Francisia Monahan.
