Kelly Thompson signs exclusive contract with Marvel
Marvel announced that critically acclaimed writer of Hawkeye Kelly Thompson has signed an exclusive agreement with them. Kelly has also wrote Journey to Star War:The Last Jedi Captain Phasma and is currently writing Rogue & Gambit for the House of Ideas. Here is what Kelly has said about the agreement:
“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!”
Marvel plans to unveil more of Thompson’s work over the next few months and at San Diego comic con, I for one am excited about this news and can’t wait to see what books she plans to write.
