Interview: Kelly Thompson – Powerpuff Girls art by Paulina Ganucheau (out July 2024), Scarlett with art by Marco Ferrari (out June 5th)

  1. Kelly it’s such a pleasure to have you on the AIPT comics podcast for the second time! Congratulations on the Eisner nominations, what a year you’ve had. We’ve loved your work on Cull, Birds of Prey, and It’s Jeff, and now you’ve set your sites on Powerpuff Girls! Can you tell us how long you’ve been working on the project, and how it came to be?
  2. Based on Paulina’s work, I have to say she’s an inspired pick for a series like this. Have you had a chance to check out any art yet?
  3. Powerpuff Girls has such an eclectic rogues gallery, any favorite villains in the bunch? 
  4. Any favorite villains you thought were underutilized? Maskara?
  5. Last time you were on the podcast you mentioned you keep a notebook to jot down dialogue for characters, have you been adding to a Powerpuff Girl section and is there a specific character that you’ve grown to love writing the most?
  6. If your first story arc of Powerpuff Girls was a song, what would it be and why?
    1. Best Coast – I love it Icona Pop, Call me Maybe, Cruel Summer
  7. By the time this airs, Scarlet is out, but we haven’t had the pleasure of digging in yet, can you talk a little bit about how it fits within the Energon universe?
  8. If the Powerpuff Girls are made of “sugar, spice, and everything nice,” what is Scarlet made of?
  9. In press materials, you’ve mentioned Scarlett and Powerpuff as important to you when you were younger, what’s left for you to tackle in the comics realm?
  10. Birds of Prey #12 reunites you with Sophie Campbell! What can we expect from this issue and how’d it feel getting the band back together?
  11. I’m a huge Marvel Snap fanatic and I know you play…Kelly what deck are you running these days?
  12. What else do you have to plug today? The Cull and Black Cloak are both coming back, yes?
