AWA Studios, a creative business owned and operated by creators, launched in March 2020 by a 25-year veteran of the comics industry, Axel Alonso. He started his career as an editor at Vertigo/DC Comics and moved onto Marvel in 2000 where he spearheaded Marvel’s efforts to revitalize and diversify their superhero lineup, including driving the creation of Miles Morales/Spider-Man, Kamala Khan/Ms. Marvel, Jane Foster/Thor, and Sam Wilson/Captain America, and brought in celebrated movie director Reginald Hudlin and National Book Award winner and MacArthur genius, Ta-Nehesi Coates, to bring the Black Panther to new creative heights.

Axel is now leading the charge behind an array of all-new original series spanning and blending genres, as well the creation of a new shared universe, from the mind of visionary American screenwriter creator J. Michael Straczynski (Babylon 5).
