Roxane Gay First Black Woman Writer for Marvel
The recruitment of Gay is part of Marvel’s drive to diversify its offering, both in terms of creators and characters. “So. I am writing a comic book series for Marvel,” Gay tweeted, announcing the news. “Black women are also doing the covers and art … And no. It doesn’t make sense that I am the first, in 2016. But I won’t be the last.” She also tweeted that it was likely to come out in November.
Congrats Roxane! The world looks forward to your perspective on a character and an aspect of said character that has yet to be explored. Here’s hoping its a success!
