Women of Color in the Big Two

I was just wondering, before September 2009, will there have ever been a women of color writing a title for either of the Big Two? Felicia Henderson, a writer for "Gossip Girl", "Soul Food", "Moesha", and "Family Matters" as well as executive producer for "Fringe", "Gossip Girl" and "Everybody Hates Chris" will be taking over as ongoing writer for Teen Titans, but I've been racking my brain and Google trying to see if any non-white women have been writers for a series for the Big Two before. Do you guys know?

Hm...I don't believe so. I'm trying to think about Marvel, but it's not coming to me.

I'd be a lot more excited about this if it didn't feel like Henderson was keeping time on a title that's completely doomed, especially with this roster.

One of Bendis' rumoured "ghost writers"?

Probably not one of Ennis 14 year old boy ghost writers that I imagined into being.

I don't think ANY writer can raise sales with that book

Really? Hm. Now this is an interesting development.

IIRC, Marjorie M. Liu, writer of NYX: No Way Home and cowriter of the current Dark Wolverine series, is of partly East Asian ancestry. Ms. Marvel artist Sana Takeda is Japanese. And, depending also on one's definition of "white" (an odd concept in itself), penciler Adriana Melo, of Ms. Marvel, Birds of Prey, X-Men: Legacy, etc. and inker Mariah Benes, who's worked on Ms. Marvel, Justice League, and other series, are both Brazilian. I'm sure there are others.
