Lea Hernandez, a pioneering cartoonist in the American manga hybrid style of storytelling, is back with a Kickstarter campaign:

THE GARLICKS is a webcomic/graphic novel about a vampire girl, for girls. (But so far, guys have dug it a lot–I call this the My Little Pony Effect: if it’s good, it’s for everyone!) It’s my first all-ages book, and my first graphic novel in color. I’ll be serializing THE GARLICKS, three color pages a week, over the next year as a webcomic at http://thegarlicks.net.

When Pandora’s first story is complete and still piping hot, it’ll be collected into a full-color print trade of 148 pages, with an introduction by Jill Thompson, incredible creator of SCARY GODMOTHER! (Who better, right?)



  1. Great to see Lea finally has a venue to get this book out into the world. I’ll buy in for sure! Good luck Lea!

  2. Thanks for giving THE GARLICKS a signal boost, Heidi!
    It’s almost at 10% funded, but REALLY needs to pick up in the next 3 weeks, so anyone reading this, please pledge and share like crazy!
