About

20 FISTS is a queer Romeo & Juliet during a break-up meets The Warriors.  It's a tale as old as time. Two women, who met on the battleground, find themselves sorting through the rubble of their relationship in the illegal and unlicensed fight league that runs rampant throughout their city. Issue #1 features two chapters: Round One is the first part of the fight between The No Names & The Big Jackets. Following Round One is a flashback that sets up the growing friction between Chel, Billie, and their crews.

This is ultimately a story about doing what you love and not allowing yourself to be controlled by the people in your life. It's something I think we can all relate to and strive for even if you've never been in an underground city-wide fight league.

This Kickstarter is exclusively to fund printing of Issue #1, 35 pages of black and white comic with a color cover. Everything has already been paid for out of pocket and now we want to bring our little story directly to YOU. See below for the cover and some sample pages!
