“Who inspires you? That’s the question we asked the creators involved with FEMME MAGNIFIQUE,” explains Brian Miller, co-owner of Hi-Fi Colour Design and a co-curator of the Kickstarter graphic novel anthology that launches today. “Their answers may surprise and even shock you,” Miller continues, “but I guarantee when you read these stories, you will be inspired, too.”

FEMME MAGNIFIQUE is a graphic novel anthology that celebrates thirty female trailblazers. From astronauts and abolitionists to computer coders and gender activists, these fearless women from our history have paved the way for equal rights in science, politics and the arts.

A star-studded team of New York Times best-selling writers and artists, Eisner Award winners, and TED speakers deliver powerful, personal stories that are rich and relevant. “These are the stories you haven’t heard,” editor and co-curator Shelly Bond explains. “We couldn’t think of a better way to honor both this group of triumphant women and the forward-thinking, inclusive creators from the comic book industry.

Anthropologist Kristy Miller, co-owner of HiFi Colour Design and co-curator of FEMME MAGNIFIQUE, adds, “Women have been ruling the world for centuries but are often overlooked or forgotten. FEMME MAGNIFIQUE delivers an important message, one we hope will be discovered by like-minded men and women. Help us to recognize the contributions made by women in all walks of life so they are not overlooked by future generations.”

The 30-day Kickstarter Campaign begins today.

COMIC BOOK PROS UNITE TO SALUTE AND INSPIRE IN FEMME MAGNIFIQUE!

30 short stories celebrate women who crack ceilings, take names, and change the game.

Crafted by writers and artists who have been inspired by 30 trailblazers of yesterday and today, FEMME MAGNIFIQUE features stories about women from the worlds of pop music, politics, art, and science. From astronauts and archaeologists to muckrakers and mathematicians, FEMME MAGNIFIQUE will stimulate and educate.

Originally conceived by Shelly Bond, former Executive Editor of Vertigo Comics, Bond explains that “the idea came about immediately after the election. It was the perfect time to take a missed opportunity for women and channel our collective energy into something insightful, full of positivity, that we can pass on to future generations. FEMME MAGNIFIQUE is a graphic novel anthology designed to salute not only the fearless women who toppled the status quo, but also the outstanding writers and artists who infuse their personal stories of ambition and discovery onto the comic book page.”

Along with Shelly Bond, FEMME MAGNIFIQUE’s stories are being curated by Hi-Fi Colour Design founders Kristy Miller and Brian Miller. The husband-and-wife team are no strangers to working with top-tier talent in the comic book industry. Kristy tells us, “We have been lucky enough to work with amazing creators for years, and now we have this opportunity to come together and showcase women in a variety of ways. It takes the support of both men and women to help move women to the forefront, their rightful, equal place.”
