Mike Perkins’ Designs For Marjorie Liu’s All Women Superhero Comic That Never Was

At San Diego Comic Con, Bleeding Cool intern Louis Falcetti reported that Marjorie Liu talked about a comic book that… wasn’t.

That she pitched an all female superhero team starring X-23, The Black Widow, Elektra and Mystique. Mike Perkins was on board to draw it, it would have been a secret team in the Marvel Universe and it was pitched over a year ago.

Marvel said no. Because they said it simply wouldn’t sell.

Today we lucked upon the visuals for the pitch. Titled Liberators, it has a very sixties super-spy feel to it. There also seem to be two versions, one with X-23 and one with Cecilia Reyes.

So… would you have bought this?
