Preface

The Kickstarter sensation that united over 100 comic
book writers and artists from around the globe is now available in paperback
with new content, including a new cover by Tess Fowler (Kid Lobotomy, Rat
Queens). 50 female trailblazers of yesterday and today each get a 4color
sequential tribute in Femme Magnifique. This collection features 3page short
stories about women from the arenas of pop music, politics, art, and science.
From astronauts and archaeologists to muckrakers and mathematicians, Femme
Magnifique will stimulate and educate. Part mini biopic, part personal
inspiration, this collection also features new material including a foreword,
behindthescenes process pages, and more! Creators from South Africa,
India, England, Denmark, the U.S. and other locales converge to share stories of
personal heroines Kate Bush, Octavia Butler, Rumiko Takahashi, Ada Lovelace,
Misty Copeland, Margaret Sanger, Michelle Obama, Sally Ride, Harriet Tubman and
more! Comic book luminairies Gail Simone, Kelly Sue DeConnick, Bill
Sienkiewicz, Kieron Gillen, Sanford Greene, Jill Thompson, Gilbert Hernandez,
Gerard Way and Marguerite Bennett, to name a few, lend their talents to a
celebration of kickass women who are truly magnifique.
