There are a lot of things I got wrong on Project Bombshell but using the comic book format for 42 was not one of those wrong decisions. While the story that we needed to tell for Rise of the Cat People was just too filled with lore and not enough action, 42 lends herself to have classic comic book moments.
42's still active in the world and let's be honest, she's a lot like Barbarella, except her goals aren't as closely tied to sexual revolution. She's unknowingly funny, bad ass and full of science and magic mysteries. I'm more than pleased to embark on an adventure with 42 that doesn't have to tell her whole story but gives a glimpse into what makes Ilaria turn into 42.
