Marvel Entertainment is excited to announce that writer Kelly Thompson has joined the House of Ideas in an exclusive agreement!

Thompson’s stellar work on the HAWKEYE ongoing series, last year’s epic JOURNEY TO STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI – CAPTAIN PHASMA, and the current fan-favorite ROGUE & GAMBIT limited series has captivated readers everywhere—and now she’s set to introduce her one-of-a-kind voice to new corners of the Marvel Universe.

“Marvel was truly my first love. So to be here today, not only writing for Marvel but ‘going exclusive’ with them, is the definition of a dream come true,” says Thompson. “I remember visiting Disney World as a teen and being so consumed by an issue of X-Men that was due to come out that I was checking newsstands like a girl possessed until I located it. So yeah, this is everything I always wanted.”

Marvel Editor-in-Chief C.B. Cebulski agrees, “From the moment she turned in her first script, Kelly has continually brought big ideas, incredible energy, and endless enthusiasm to the Marvel Universe and every comic she’s had a hand in creating for us. We’re honored to now have her as part of the family here and could not be more excited for the fans to read the amazing adventures she’ll be taking our characters on next year—and beyond!”

In the coming months and at San Diego Comic Con this summer, Marvel will reveal more of Thompson’s exciting work. Until then, stay up-to-date with all of Kelly’s books on Marvel Unlimited and Marvel.com!
