“As the builders of Krakoa began discussing the gala within the pages of MARAUDERS and beyond, the writers and editors began noodling on what the evening could be,” said Hellfire Gala writer Gerry Duggan. “At our X-Retreat just over a year ago in Chicago we had some very large story ideas and production plans that were ratified to give our artists the time they needed to collaborate on the designs.”
“Russell has been an important part of the MARAUDERS team from the beginning, and it only made sense to ask that he lead the way.” Duggan added. “The writers jammed on very simple prompts for a few of the looks, but by and large each character was a blank slate for Russell and our other artists. Our regular series artists were also asked to contribute around a half dozen high fashions, so if you don’t see your favorite character on a cover, you’ll likely see them at the party.”
“We haven’t sent any of these books to press yet, but I know we’ve already left a giant mark on the line with this party. The White Queen and House Carnation set out to create a special evening like no other, and it’s going to make any other galas you might hear about look like a county fair. Not that it’s a contest, but…Krakoa wins. The whole world’s watching us now, so we must be nothing less than fabulous,” Duggan concluded.
The Hellfire Gala kicks off on June 2.
