What They’re Saying:

  • Writer Trina Robbins: “I kept in all the traditional Patsy Walker characters: her girlfriend Nancy, her frenemy Hedy Wolfe, the boy they fight over, Buzz Baxter, and added some new characters. I loved Patsy Walker as a kid, and so did my girlfriends. We weren't the least bit interested in being Super Heroes; we wanted to be Patsy!  So it's a dream come true for me to write her.”
  • Artist Derek Charm: “The fashion and specific references are mostly from Trina, who provided tons of clippings from 50s fashion magazines and old Patsy comics. I was lucky enough to have some extra time to do character designs and find the right looks for each of the main characters based on Trina's references. That really helped get me in the visual mindset of the era. Besides that, my favorite part was adding all of the 50's design elements between panels and in the backgrounds, and really leaning into the iconography of the period. I also love the way Rico Renzi's 50's color palette brought everything to life.”
