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 was 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 the first volume – and published the complete story in February 2015 as a collected, full colour, high quality print edition. We followed that success in June 2015 with a second, even more ambitious Kickstarter, which smashed our target at £13,000 – enough for us to produce Volume 2, including new stories from previously-unpublished writers.

The print versions of MSCSI Volumes 1 and 2 are now sold directly through Rape Crisis, with all profit going directly to this important charity and its services.

Meanwhile, the entire comic, complete with its guest art and extra stories, is now available in full, for free, on the website – just like we always said it would be.

We've come a long way, with your help. And with your help, we'll keep on going.

If you like MSCSI, share it. Boost the signal. Spread the message. Smart is a superpower.

As ever, keep in touch with us on Twitter, email and Facebook.

"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."

"Great characters, beautifully drawn. I wish there'd been a comic like this when I was a girl."

Mary Talbot, co-creator of Dotter of Her Father’s Eyes and Sally Heathcote, Suffragette

"I LOVE IT. Genuinely, hugely, madly."

"My So-Called Secret Identity will change your view on women in comics."

"Smart... a great comic."
