We are really avid readers, and wanted to see more stories about girls who are heroes and face challenges we faced in life. Superhero stories can be kinda alienating (when’s Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow getting her own movie, Marvel? Or Wonder Woman!!!) and there’s a lot of black and white, good vs. bad, when the world is much more complex. We wanted to write a world with a lot of gray. (via Meet Alex Flynn, the Newest YA Novelist to Celebrate Female Underdogs)
Celebrate The Misshapes at Are Superheroes Necessary? The Misshapes Present Superhero Stories TOMORROW, April 30 with Stu Sherman, Elisabeth Donnelly, Jon Ronson, Owen King, Sean Howe, Rachel Cantor, Lisa Lucas, and Rachel Syme.
