Writer Elsa Sjunneson: “I was so delighted when [Editor Sarah Brunstad] said yes to my pitch of writing Peggy in the 1940s as Captain America! Peggy Carter represents strength and competence, to me and to a lot of other women who love a good spy story. Of course I leapt at the opportunity to add to her story -- and to write a badass disabled spy as her collaborator -- in WOMEN OF MARVEL #1.”

Writer Anne Toole: “I've been working on writing for Marvel for years, so I was so glad for this opportunity -- and that I got to choose whoever I wanted! I went with Misty [Knight] because she's a smart, unique, underserved character who is ripe for her own detective series (hint, hint). I was all set to do a normal detective story, but... I couldn't resist a few super heroics.”

Writer Zoraida Cordova: "I feel like when we think of Gamora we think of the deadliest woman in the galaxy, right? She is fierce and skilled. But she’s also full of heart. I thought it would be fun to see the juxtaposition between her types of strengths."

(Psssst: You can hear more from Cordova next month when WOMEN OF MARVEL #1 goes on sale!)
