Kelly Sue DeConnick will be at Emerald City ComiconKelly Sue DeConnick

Bitch Planet

Kelly Sue DeConnick (writer): BITCH PLANET (Image), PRETTY DEADLY (Image), CAPTAIN MARVEL (Marvel), OSBORN (Marvel) got her start in the comic industry adapting Japanese and Korean comics into English. Five years and more than ten thousand pages of adaptation later, she transitioned to American comics with 30 DAYS OF NIGHT: EBEN AND STELLA, for Steve Niles and IDW. Work for Image, Boom, Oni, Humanoids, Dark Horse, DC, Vertigo and Marvel soon followed. Today, DeConnick is best known for surprise hits like Carol Danvers' rebranding as Captain Marvel and the Eisner-nominated mythological western, PRETTY DEADLY; the latter was co-created with artist Emma Ríos. DeConnick's most recent venture, the sci-fi kidney-punch called BITCH PLANET, co-created with Valentine De Landro, launched to rave reviews in December 2014. DeConnick lives in Portland, Oregon with her husband, Matt Fraction, and their two children.

Sex Criminals

Matt Fraction (writer): SEX CRIMINALS (Image), ODY-C (Image), CASANOVA (Image), SATELLITE SAM (Image), HAWKEYE (Marvel) writes comic books out in the woods and lives with his wife, the writer Kelly Sue DeConnick, his two children, two dogs, a cat, a bearded dragon, and a yard full of coyotes and stags. Surely there is a metaphor there. He won the first-ever PEN USA Literary Award for Graphic Novels; he, or comics he's a part of, have won Eisners, Harveys, and Eagles, which are like the Oscars, Emmys, and Golden Globes of comic books and all seem about as likely. He's a New York Times best-selling donkus of comics like SEX CRIMINALS (winner of the 2014 Will Eisner Award for Best New Series, the 2014 Harvey Award for Best New Series, and named TIME Magazine’s Best Comic of 2013), SATELLITE SAM, ODY-C, HAWKEYE (winner of the 2014 Will Eisner Award for Best Single Issue), and, oh, lordy, so many more.
