Q&A: Who was your biggest influence when getting into the comic industry?

When I was starting in the industry, Kelly Sue DeConnick was one of the first people stepping up for women (that I saw) and taking the time to really encourage them to tell the stories that they wanted to see in the world.

She would frequently give out her personal email and information to any woman who wanted her to look at their stories and scripts, and not only encourage them but to also help them along their way.

Kelly Sue not only spoke a big game about wanting to see more women in the industry but actively worked to make it happen alongside everything else she was doing at the time.

If that isn’t a true goddamn comic book hero, then I don’t know who is. I will never forget the kindness and time she gave to anyone that wanted or needed it.
