Writer, Captain Marvel, Pretty Deadly, Bitch Planet

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 2012, DeConnick became the spiritual mother of the Carol Corps with her reinvention of Carol Danvers as Captain Marvel (Marvel). DeConnick debuted on the creator-owned scene in a big way with the Eisner Award–nominated western Pretty Deadly (Image) and follows that up this year with a women-in-prison exploitation riff, provocatively titled Bitch Planet (Image).
