Captain Marvel. Jessica Jones. Kate Bishop. Jeff the Landshark. Kelly Thompson has given voice to so many incredible Marvel characters; it’s hard to keep track. Her BLACK WIDOW series with Elena Casagrande and Jordie Bellaire just took home the Eisner Award for Best New Series. It’s so good; and yes, it made me cry. (Pick up BLACK WIDOW #11 on shelves this week!)
She’s not afraid to create her own multiple-choice option. She’s firm on the best super-power. She’s a Woman of Marvel. And we had some questions for her. 
We asked. She answered.
Oh no. This is depressing already! I look at my phone. Actually one of my cats wakes me up way too early and I groggily feed them…then stumble back to bed. When I wake up again a couple hours later, it’s straight to the phone. This was maybe not so bad when I lived on the East Coast, but now, by the time, I wake up I already feel 3 hours behind. 
The Expanse (incredible sci-fi series), Carmen Maria Machado’s Her Body & Other Parties (short fiction), Taskmaster reruns (British Comedy Show), Ernst Lubitsch movies, The Guilty (incredible Danish film), The Nice House On The Lake (comics!)…wait, is there a world outside watching and reading things? I might have missed it. Oh wait, Eggs Benedict and Bloody Marys from Olympia Provisions (Portland). Yeah, that’s the ticket. 
I think I have to say Jessica. My love for Kate is endless and she’s got tons of raw talent, but she’s inexperienced. Jessica is a detective down into her BONES and has the experience to back it up. And I think even Kate would agree with that assessment. 
Honestly? I don’t trust anyone that doesn’t say flight. Unless they say teleportation. 
KT: Compromise. Not getting too locked into your idea of what it should be. Comics is about multiple visions coming together to form a single BEST vision…it doesn’t always work out, but when it does it feels like magic. 
This answer is obviously sandwiches.
What about adorable land shark person? ;D 
Comics, what else is there? ;D 
My cats – Clive and The Monarch. I want to also say my partner, but I suspect he’d side eye that answer pretty hard. 

Depends what I’m fighting. If it’s frat boys or ninjas or government agents, Natasha. If it’s a giant alien squid? Carol please. 
I basically sit at my laptop all day every day…how many pages are actually written vs. emails sent or proofs reviewed or random Internet articles read is a different question. But if you wait for inspiration to strike, you’re in very big trouble. 
We got a Gwenpool once, it was amazing. I definitely gave her extra candy. If a Jeff the Land Shark shows up, I’m just handing them the whole bowl. 
I have definitely played Monopoly many more times than Life…but I did always love the board and pieces in The Game of Life. I think I gotta give it to Life for sheer board creativity. 
Argh. Real Sophie’s Choice here! One of the things I’m most proud of is how we handled the shift between artists Mattia De Iulis and Filipe Andrade in JESSICA JONES: PURPLE DAUGHTER. I really felt we took what could have been a weakness — i.e. needing two artists to complete the arc — and turned it into a great strength.
When Jessica breaks free — with a punch — and we switch from one artist to another as the illusion collapses? Yeah, that’s some good smart comics. 
Autumn. I’m also a sucker for both Halloween time and Christmastime. 
Do more and be less afraid, you’ll be fine. You are a cautious person by nature and you are much more likely to feel an ocean of regret for the things you didn’t do than for those you did. Also, don’t stop swimming. You love it. 
I’m not sure this counts but it’s definitely “By Grabthar’s Hammer…what a savings.” (Galaxy Quest!)
All the incredible characters I’ve gotten to write and the great people I’ve worked with. 
MacKenzie Cadenhead is a children’s book author and an old school (Read: former) Marvel editor — not old-old but let’s just say she knew Gwen Stacy when she was dead. She co-authors the "Marvel Super-Hero Adventures" chapter book series for young readers and is a proud Woman of Marvel. You can see what she’s up to over at Instagram @mackenziecadenhead.
