The Nerds of Color recently caught up with dear friend and comic book writer Stephanie Williams to talk about the work that went into bringing Nubia & the Amazons to life. Williams, a former guest to The NOC, spoke about the journey she’s been on and the importance of finally seeing Nubia fully realized as her own heroine.
Williams and legendary author Vita Ayala (The Wilds, Static: Season One) served as writers on the first issue that was released October 19, with the iconic Alitha Martinez on board as the illustrator.
The issue follows the events of Infinite Frontier, with Nubia ascending to the throne of Themyscira. Williams made it clear that Nubia’s transformation from Diana Prince analogue to full-fledged queen of the Amazons took considerable care.
