We were only talking about the work of Magdalene Visaggio the other day. She drew the ashcan of her sci-fi LGBTQ comic book Kim + Kim, released in NYCC, as Brian Visaggio.
But she will be published through Black Press as Magdalene Visaggio. The comic book itself is a journey of transition.
By Magdalene Visaggio, Eva Cabrera, Claudia Aguirre and covers by Tess Fowler and Devaki Neogi, Kim + Kim will be published in July by Black Press.
Another one from an all-new creative team, Kim & Kim is a Tank Girl-esque buddy adventure about a trans woman and her best girlfriend.
Kim & Kim is a day-glo action adventure that's bursting with energy and enthusiasm and puts queer women and trans women front and center. Badass besties Kim and Kim are out to make a name for themselves in the wild world of interdimensional cowboy law enforcement – and they very quickly end up in way over their heads.
Blending the punk exuberance of Tank Girl with the buddy adventure wackiness of Superbad (if Michael Cera was a trans woman and Jonah Hill a queer girl partner in crime), Kim & Kim focuses on the power and meaning of female friendships as engines of validation. A bright, happy, punk rock sci fi adventure that is queer as shit.
