Marvel Entertainment has announced it has signed an exclusive agreement with writer Kelly Thompson.
You are probably most familiar with Thompson’s work from her run on Hawkeye, which wraps this month, but she has also taken on Captain Marvel & the Carol Corps, and the Captain Phasma series. In addition to Hawkeye, Thompson is currently writing the Rogue & Gambit mini-series.
“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,” said 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 has been incredibly supportive of and nurturing of my work as a creator and I really cannot wait for everything that’s to come, but waiting to announce projects is sort of like living in a delicious hell,” shared Thompson. “It’s torture not to be able to share the things you know with the people you know are going to love them, but it’s also insanely cool not only to know those secrets but to be a CREATOR of said secrets. And right at this moment…all I can say is that there are a lot of cool secrets to come, and some of them are even secrets I got to help create.”
