This is a character design by Carl Yonder for the book we’re working on.
She is a superhero and she goes by the name “Black Knight”. Well, at the moment she does. She kinda changes her superhero name a lot. The book is tentatively titled “Fury Sisters”.
Let me know what you think!
If there’s anything we love here at BNP, it’s good writing and representation in our comic books. As you can imagine, we’re big fans of Jeremy Whitley. The Eisner Award nominee has had his writing …
Hey Everybody! I was invited over to BlackNerdProblems.Com to talk about my work on Princeless etc with the amazing Carrie McClain! Go check out the interview and the site. I think this site is going to be something to watch!
ComicsAllianc’s Chris Sims reacts to Comic-Con’s problematic response to a petition asking the convention to strengthen its policy against forms of harassment.
So, here’s the thing #SDCC or San Diego Comic Con or Comic Con International as it tries to make people call it with minimal success is refusing to amend their harassment policy and provide any real and visible support to cosplayer/women/humans who don’t enjoy having people treat them like meat, because then people may think they have a harassment problem.
I understand their concern. Outside of the comics community people don’t really know that Comic Con can be a dangerous and sometimes deadly place for people. This is especially true if you’re a woman or cosplayer in a crowded place with tons of people and no help easily visible or available. To them, protecting their brand is more important than protecting their attendees, supporters, and creators.
So, it seems to me there is only one way to solve this: Everybody needs to start sharing their SDCC harassment stories in as public a forum as possible. Contact comics news sites, normal news sites, feminist news sites. Hashtag blogs, tweets, and facebook posts with #SDCCHarassment. Dig up and share some of those old classics I’ve seen passed around that just don’t seem to have gotten deep enough into the media to really affect these fine folks.
They had a choice to make of whether to protect people or the brand. Let’s make the choice easier.
READING LIST: A Field Guide to Fifteen Feminist Comics - Casey Gilly’s got 99 problems, but finding fifteen comics with awesome female representation ain’t one.
I like Princeless being on these types of lists. I like it even more when we’re in such amazing company. If you haven’t read these books, you’re missing out!

"In the future, the government will track your every move with a microchip implanted beneath your skin…and you’ll do anything to get one."
Illegal follows the story if Gianna Delrey, an undocumented immigrant living in the shadows of an enormous city. All citizens received a microchip that tracks their movements and stores the history of their lives. Anybody without a chip is an illegal. They can’t be tracked, but if they’re caught, they wind up in the deport camps - where the wait to be deported has become so long that most people die just trying to survive.
Gianna has done her best to stay invisible, but things are about to change and Gianna will have to choose whether to fight or to keep running.

Here it is, lilylilymine and my special five page preview of our upcoming project “Snow”.
Snow follows the adventures of Adira, a girl who wakes up to find that her whole world has changed, her sister is kidnapped by a terrifying evil force, and only she can save her.
Currently Snow does not have publisher, though Jessi and I have shared our pitch with a few publishers we are waiting to hear from now. Fingers crossed! If you’re interested in seeing more of this story, please like it, share it, and support it in any other way you see fit! Thanks!
