This year at C2E2, I had the honor of interviewing Robbie Thompson, Stacey Lee, and Ian Herring about their work and creative process on Marvel’s SILK.

SILK follows Cindy Moon, Marvel’s first Korean-American (you heard it here first, a ComicsVerse exclusive!) female superhero, who was introduced to readers in THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN VOL. 3 (2014) #1. Bitten by the same radioactive spider as Peter Parker as a teenager, she was trained in her powers by Ezekiel Sims before being locked away in a bunker for nearly a decade. SILK #1 follows Cindy as she begins to rediscover a world she hardly recognizes anymore and adjust to her newfound freedom – and responsibilities. Determined to rejoin society as the superhero she never had the chance to be, she is joined by Black Cat and fellow arachnids Spider-man and Spider-woman.

SILK is written by Robbie Thompson, famed writer and co-executive producer of the hit television show SUPERNATURAL with art and colors by Stacey Lee and Ian Herring.

The team was gracious enough to take time out of their wildly busy schedules – panels, interviews, and signings – to talk to me about who Cindy Moon is, what inspired her as a character, their collaborative process as a team, and what is in store for SILK. Along the way, we talked about anime (Stacey Lee is, in fact, a big Kill la Kill fan!), art nouveau, Asian erasure and homogenization in the media, and who we would each cast as Cindy Moon in a television or film adaptation of SILK!

This was a wildly fun and dynamic interview (filmed in front of a live audience, that’s how popular their table in Artist Alley was) , and one of my favorites of the entire convention! We cannot thank Robbie Thompson, Stacey Lee, and Ian Herring enough for giving ComicsVerse the exclusive scoop!
