We celebrate a lot of birthdays around here. And look, we get that some of the ones we mention are, at best, a little nuts.

That said …

On this day in 1970, Kelly Sue Deconnick was born.

Some of you MAY not be entirely sure you know Kelly Sue, but you do. She's the writer who made Carol Danvers into Captain Marvel, she's the co-creator of Bitch Planet, she does English-language interpretations of manga (swoon!) and she created the incredible Pretty Deadly.

And wow, so many more things. All in all, it's going great for her.


She also runs a pretty bad-ass Instagram feed and you can find her at a lot of cons. So, when you see her, wish her a happy birthday from all of us at SYFY WIRE.
