Westfield: What appeals to you about the character?
Williams: The freedom, predominantly. There’s not a big amount of public understanding for this characters, as well as Dynamite were extremely awesome as well as available to letting me do my own handle the story. For those who DO understand her history as well as have checked out other miss Fury comics, this is a different take, a somewhat different Marla Drake. When we open she’s type of immoral as well as lost, a thief. upset at the world for reasons that will ended up being obvious as the story progresses. Along the road she’s got to ask herself what she’s prepared to fight as well as go to war for .I like the arc that Marla undergoes – her journey.

Westfield: What characters will visitors encounter aside from miss Fury?
Williams: None you’d recognize. This is a whole new storyline as well as history for the character. If you’ve never checked out a miss Fury comic you’ll be fine choosing up #1. We bring you as much as speed on her (new) character history as well as origin as well as then we’re into the action. This is a Hollywood action film on the pages.
Westfield: Jack Herbert is doing the art for the book. What can you state about your collaboration?
Williams: Jack’s been wonderful. Dynamite suggested him as well as I’ve been blown away by his work. This is a truly difficult script – there’s great deals of 1940s recommendation together with crazy visuals like jet fighters as well as huge Nazi flying V bombers. as well as the subtle character work’s just as essential as the huge bangs. Jack’s truly sold it throughout. I believe he’s going to be a star.
