Darlings!!! It is the final few days!!! We’ve come so far and I’m so grateful to everyone who has helped out!!! Let’s give this one last push!!
Valor is a comic anthology of re-imaged fairy tales showcasing the talent of some of the top creators in the field of digital comics. The purpose of this book is to pay homage to the strength, resourcefulness, and cunning of female heroines in fairy tales.
Some of these are recreations of time-honored tales. Others are brand new stories, designed to be passed to future generations.
The anthology will be young adult friendly and in color, each story being 4 to 15 pages long. Due to us meeting stretch goals, we also added amazing book extras : more comics and prose stories! That’s more than 300 pages of new fairy tales!
The kickstarter will end in 4 days.
To see more information about the lovely 24 creators on the team or to back the kickstarter, CLICK HERE!

Hazel Newlevant’s “If This Be Sin”
Winner of the 2013 Prism Comics Queer Press Grant!
Hazel Newlevant’s ‘If This Be Sin’ is a collection of comics about queer women expressing themselves through music. It tells the stories of Gladys Bentley, the Harlem Renaissance blues singer and drag king, and Wendy and Lisa, the lesbian rockstars of Prince and the Revolution.
“Hazel Newlevant draws like a dream and weaves a mesmerizing story. ‘If This Be Sin’ is a stunning achievement.”
—Alison Bechdel, author of ‘Fun Home’
