This collection is curated by Kelly Sue DeConnick, the writer behind today's Captain Marvel and Avengers Assemble series for Marvel Comics.
In honor of Carol Danvers, Helen Cobb, Jessica Drew and all the amazing women of CAPTAIN MARVEL, Kelly Sue DeConnick will donate her curation commission to the Girls' Leadership Institute, to help foster and give voice to the heroines of tomorrow.
Folks want to blame someone for gals like us. “Her daddy was unkind” or “some fella broke her heart”…
Hogwash. You and me’ve always been like this. Always a little removed. Always… Dreaming.
Of higher, further, faster…More. Always more.
We came into this world spittin’ mad, running full bore… To or from what, I ain’t never been able to tell.
Over the years, I’ve come to think of these traits as the shared attributes of a chosen people. The lord put us here to punch holes in the sky.
And when a soul is born with that kind of purpose, it’ll damn sure find a way.
We’re gonna get where we’re going, you and me. Death and indignity be damned. We’ll get there, and we will be the stars we were always meant to be.
— Helen Cobb's letter to Captain Marvel
