As the current writer of one of Marvel’s flagship titles, Captain Marvel, Kelly Sue DeConnick continues to wow fans and critics alike, with her bold and sincere take on fan-favorite, Carol Danvers. Working alongside some of the industry’s most exciting artists, including Dexter Soy, Emma Rios, and Filipe Andrade, Kelly Sue has helped catapult Captain Marvel (née Ms. Marvel) from one of the most criminally underused characters in the MU, to one of its most unique and celebrated heroes.
In addition to discussing her work on Captain Marvel, Avengers Assemble, Supergirl, and 30 Days of Night, Kelly Sue offers up plenty of general insight into her creative and collaborative process. We talk about the inspiration behind the characters she writes, (Carol Danvers is a young Kathleen Turner) and why she would love to pen a Modesty Blaise book. We also chat about Kelly Sue’s work adapting Japanese and Korean manga for English-speaking audiences, and why she has had largely positive experiences with editorial staff.
Finally, we talk Pretty Deadly, Kelly Sue’s first creator owned collaboration with Emma Rios, to be released later this year, via Image Comics.
Big thanks to all of our listeners, who took time submit questions for Kelly Sue. We are looking forward to picking your brains for future interviews. Keep it pickable, yall!
