Kim + Kim By Magdalene Visaggio, Eva Cabrera And Claudia Aguirre Moves To Black Mask's Class Of 2016

unnamed (15)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 VisaggioEva 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.
