Heroes And Coffee: Interview w/ Jeremy Whitley (Writer for Marvel NOW's Unstoppable Wasp #1)
Listen to Phoenix Da Nerdette's one-on-one interview with the writer behind this amazing, new heroine, Jeremy Whitley.
The Unstoppable Wasp #1 is a BRAND NEW COMICS series featuring a Happy-Go-Lucky Girl in a BIG WORLD!
After 16 years of isolation in the infamous Red Room, the young and ambitious Nadia Pym escapes her imprisonment, and sets her sights to exploring the world, leading her to Adventures in the U.S. In spite of her past, the young genius and scientist (who like her famous Father, Hank Pym), aspires to become a Hero. Relentless, Nadia is determined to set her mark on the world, while becoming the true meaning of "UNSTOPPABLE".
“I have to credit our amazing artist Elsa Charretier with the original idea,” says Whitley of the profiles. “I had been kicking around that I wanted to do some outreach to STEM and women in science and she came up with an idea. She would draw headshots and we’d do a little profile on female scientists. Her original plan was to post these on Twitter or Tumblr, but ever since I started working on UNSTOPPABLE WASP I’d wanted to do a letters page. I love letters pages and as engaging as Nadia is as a character, I thought it would be perfect. Elsa’s idea of profiling female scientists from our audience was exactly what I was looking for.” (via Marvel.com)
