Girlz In The Clubhouse? Kelly Sue DeConnick



Download The MP3 Here

Kelly Sue is here to talk about her recent run of stories happening at Marvel, from her One-Shots featuring Sif and Pepper Potts (Rescue) , plus stories happening in The Heroic Age & Girl Comics. Also, I feel compelled to get into a discussion about a subject that I thought wasn’t relevent anymore.

Is there still a glass ceiling when it comes to women creators in comics? Don’t we laud several accomplished editors writers and artists? Are women being denied the chance to make books, because of gender? Kel isn’t her to speak “for all womankind” , but I did want her POV, and we get it.

Plus the type of random pop culture fun I’d expect from a woman who’s married to Matt Fraction.KS talks about her favorite kind of female heroes and villains from Modesty Blaise to actress Rosiland Russell .

Crazy timing on this talk. Kel was days away from giving birth to their daughter Tallulah . Welcome to theĀ  nut house kid, and good luck.

  1. Good talkin’ John. It felt like an honest and of the moment conversation that presented a clear-headed image of field from Kelly Sue’s perspective.

    Glad that Marvel has taken the initiative in putting a spotlight on creators and characters that deserve a wider audience.

    And, it struck me today how your guests tend to be such likable folk. Hardworking, head on straight, and good taste in stuff – I wish them all the best.

  3. For a good Rosalyn Russell character, check out Jennifer Jason Leigh in the Coen Brothers’ Hudsucker Proxy.

    Love hearing KSD talk about the craft. Congrats to her and Fraction on the new little person.
