One of the final panels of the weekend was the Women of Marvel panel, which showcased upcoming female-driven Marvel projects.

Hosted by Angélique Roché, one of the hosts of the Women of Marvel podcast, this panel brought together Senior Editor Lauren Bisom, author Nic Stone, Marvel Entertainment VP of Marketing Jessica Malloy, and writer Rebecca Roanhorse to talk about their current and future projects.

Attendees of this packed-out panel were proud to show off the free gift they received – a variant of the Women of Marvel issue #1 comic by Elena Casagrande and Jordie Bellaire, with the cover showing the full line-up of Marvel women.

Rebecca Roanhorse showcased her latest project, Crypt of Shadows, a Moon Knight story set around Halloween which will feature werewolves. She also teased her involvement in the first season of Echo, which will be appearing on Disney+ next year, but was unable to reveal any details. Of course, we all know what those Disney NDAs are like!

Lauren Bison is at the helm of Moon Girl, and she spoke about Moon Girl teaming up with Mile Morales in order to find Devil Dinosaur.

Another big announcement was the confirmation that the second season of the It’s Jeff Infinity Comic will be available exclusively on the Marvel Unlimited app in September. Everyone’s favourite Land Shark’s second season will be written by Kelly Thompson, with art by Gurihiru.

Nic Stone was excited to talk about her Shuri book trilogy, which features the Wakandan science and tech whizz as a child rather than as a young adult as we see her in the comics. She spoke about how important representation is in pop culture and how exciting it is to write about a young, black female genius in the comic book world, as characters like that didn’t exist for past generations to read about.

Representation was a subject that cropped up more than once, especially in light of recent women’s rights issues, and the panel spoke about how important it is to read about characters and viewpoints that are different from our own in order to improve our understanding of the world and other people.

“It’s up to everyone in this room to create hope,” said Nic Stone, which is an incredibly important message in the current climate, and a wonderfully optimistic note on which to end this year’s SDCC.
