Kelly Sue DeConnick got her start in the comic industry adapting Japanese and Korean comics into English. Five years and more than 10,000 pages of adaptation later, she transitioned to American comics with 30 Days of Night: Eben and Stella, for Steve Niles and IDW. Work for Image, Boom!, Oni, Humanoids, Dark Horse, DC, Vertigo, and Marvel soon followed. Today, DeConnick is best known for surprise hits like Carol Danvers' rebranding as Captain Marvel and the Eisner-nominated mythological western Pretty Deadly; the latter was cocreated with her friend and "story soulmate," artist Emma Ríos. DeConnick's most recent venture, the sci-fi kidney-punch called Bitch Planet, cocreated with Valentine De Landro, launched to rave reviews in December 2014. DeConnick lives in Portland, Oregon, with her husband, Matt Fraction, and their two children.
