Editor Shelly Bond is back with Femme Magnifique

2
Editor Shelly Bond left Vertigo last May, but you knew you knew she wouldn’t stay away for long. Along with Hi-Fi Colour Design founders Kristy Miller and Brian Miller, she’s dipped into her immance rolodex**to help curate Femme Magnifique, a comics anthology of 30 short stories about women trailblazers from the worlds of pop music, politics, art, and science. Inspired by current events, the anthology will be crowdsourced very soon and weight in at more than 100 pages
 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.”
According to Kristy Miller “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.”
