Black Widow writer Kelly Thomspon just announced she’s joining Substack and offering new creator-owned comics on the subscription platform.
Kelly Thompson is the latest comic creator to join Substack, as the longtime Marvel writer is making the jump to the subscription platform with two new creator-owned comics. Thompson revealed two upcoming comics in her (new) newsletter, Black Cloak with Meredith McClaren and The Cull with Mattia de Iulis. Thompson joins James Tynion IV, Jeff Lemire, Chip Zdarsky, Saladin Ahmed, and Jonathan Hickman to make the recent jump to Substack.
Thompson has become one of the comic industry’s top talents at Marvel. Her runs on The West Coast Avengers, Deadpool, Captain Marvel, Black Widow, Hawkeye, and Jessica Jones have all received rave reviews from readers and critics. Most recently, Thompson was announced as one of a handful of comic creators who would be tackling the next generation of Spider-Man following the conclusion of Nick Spencer’s most recent run – as she’ll co-write Spider-Man Beyond with a rotating creative team featuring Zeb Wells, Saladin Ahmed and Cody Ziglar, and Patrick Gleason.
