MSCSI, created by Suze Shore, Will Brooker and Sarah Zaidan, launched online in February 2013. Issues 2 and 3, funded entirely by fan donations, followed later that year, with Issue 4 released in June 2014.

During that time, MSCSI has been acclaimed by the comics press and mainstream media, and featured in international publications like Ms Magazine, The Guardian, Times Higher Education, Femina and Stylist. Issues 1 and 2 were reprinted in a special issue of Geeked magazine, and in June 2014 the MSCSI creators joined the British Library's prestigious Comics Unmasked event, with Grant Morrison and Warren Ellis.

After a successful Kickstarter campaign in July 2014, which raised over £10,000, we produced Issue 5 – the final episode of this first volume – and published the complete story in February 2015 as a collected, full colour, high quality print edition.

MSCSI is stocked in a range of good comic stores, and also available through our shop, along with signed copies, exclusive t-shirts and prints.

We've come a long way, with your help. And with your help, we'll keep on going: the next volume of MSCSI is already in development.

As ever, keep in touch with us on Twitter, email and Facebook. Smart is a superpower.

"Boy, is it good!"

Fourth Wave Feminism

"My So-Called Secret Identity features a superhero we all can rally around, an antidote to the brawny chauvinists and busty sex symbols of mainstream comics. Cat certainly has a bright future ahead of her"

Ms. Magazine

"The one we've been waiting for! It's so good I want to weep."

Geeked Magazine

"A comic that gives readers properly characterised, relatable superheroines whose brains are more important than their bodies... MSCSI is catering for a shamefully-overlooked but hungry audience of female fans."

Stylist Magazine


"Splendid... the Lookbook is excellent, like the special features on a DVD."
