Interview: Writer Kelly Sue DeConnick

Apr 26, 2014

Writer, Captain Marvel, Avengers Assemble, Pretty Deadly

During WonderCon 2014, fellow Geek Natalie Atkins and I got a chance to sit down with writer Kelly Sue DeConnick.  We got the chance to discuss past, present and future projects with her, as well as her role in paving the way for women in the comic world.  As the father of three daughters I am grateful that there are strong, intelligent women in the industry, like Kelly, that are paving the way for future generations.

Kelly Sue DeConnick began her comics career writing the English adaptations of Japanese comics for Tokyopop and VIZ. After 7 years and more than 10,000 pages on books like Slam Dunk, Blue Spring and Sexy Voice And Robo, she transitioned to American comics with 30 Days of Night: Eben And Stella (IDW). In addition to helming Avengers Assemble at Marvel, DeConnick also became the spiritual mother of the Carol Corps with her reinvention of Carol Danvers as Captain Marvel. DeConnick recently debuted on the creator-owned scene in a big way with Pretty Deadly, a macabre Western, co-created with artist Emma Ríos.
