Kelly Sue DeConnick

Kelly Sue DeConnick began her comics career writing the English adaptations of Japanese manga for Tokyopop and VIZ. After five 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 at IDW and OSBORN: EVIL INCARCERATED at Marvel. Today, DeConnick is well-known in the mainstream market as the force behind Carol Danvers’ reinvention as Captain Marvel (the book that gave rise to the Carol Corps and influenced the 2019 film, for which she worked as a consultant) and as the first female writer of an ongoing Avengers title in AVENGERS ASSEMBLE. In 2013, DeConnick debuted on the independent scene in a big way with PRETTY DEADLY, a brutal mythological Western co-created with Spanish artist Emma Ríos. Hot on the heels of that critical and commercial success, DeConnick and co-creator Valentine De Landro masterminded the sci-fi kidney-punch called BITCH PLANET. This (also Eisner Award-nominated) ongoing series has been met with rave reviews since its debut in December 2014. She made her appearance writing for DC Comics with the ongoing series AQUAMAN in 2018. She currently develops television with her husband and partner, Matt Fraction, as Milkfed Criminal Masterminds. DeConnick co-founded and co-owns GOOD TROUBLE PRODUCTIONS with Andrew Aydin, Valentine De Landro, Matt Fraction, and Vaughn Shinall. Their first major project, RUN, produced with Congressman John Lewis and Abrams Comicarts, is in stores now.
