Femme Magnifique! A Kickstarter for an anthology about amazing women!

The fabulous Shelly Bond, former DC Vertigo editor and head honcho, just launched a kickstarter for an anthology called Femme Magnifique that she’s doing in conjunction with Kristy and Brian Miller at HiFi Color.



“If you're frustrated by what's happening in the world right now, from the sudden jeopardy of women's rights to the overall global negativity, join us in creating FEMME MAGNIFIQUE, a book that dares to turn the tables. Let's remind everyone how far we've come and exactly where we're going by saluting 30 female trailblazers of yesterday and today.

From astronauts and abolitionists to computer coders and crack journalists, these fearless women have paved the way for equal rights in science, politics and the arts. What better way to celebrate their achievements than in FEMME MAGNIFIQUE, a book that can live on in teenage bedrooms, corporate boardrooms and libraries around the world?”

The project lists a slew of incredible comics talent (including me!) who are writing about a vast and diverse range of fantastically inspiring women. Here are the teams and stories announced so far.
