Why support FEMME MAGNIFIQUE?

If you're frustrated by what's happening in the world right now, from the sudden jeopardy of women's rights to the overall global negativity, join us in creating FEMME MAGNIFIQUE, a book that dares to turn the tables. Let's remind everyone how far we've come and exactly where we're going by saluting 30 female trailblazers of yesterday and today.

From astronauts and abolitionists to computer coders and crack journalists, these fearless women have paved the way for equal rights in science, politics and the arts. What better way to celebrate their achievements than in FEMME MAGNIFIQUE, a book that can live on in teenage bedrooms, corporate boardrooms and libraries around the world?

We've reached out to an A-list of writers and artists who have been published by major comics and book publishers including Random House, Marvel, DC Comics, Image and IDW. From New York Times best-selling authors and Literature Prize Winners, to Eisner award-winners and TED speakers, this diverse group of women and men hail from the U.S. and Canada, England, Singapore, Greece, and India to name just a few unique locales.  We're united by a deep love and appreciation for the comics medium and its peerless power of graphic storytelling and we couldn't think of a better time or format in which to bring FEMME MAGNIFIQUE to life.

FEMME MAGNIFIQUE is a graphic novel anthology that delivers inspirational comic-book stories about powerful women in science, politics, and the arts. 
  • 30 short stories staring female trailblazers of today and yesterday
  • Over 50 diverse writers and artists
  • Printed in full-color
  • Perfect-bound cardstock cover
  • Free US Shipping
  • Digital Edition delivered via comiXology
This is just the starting point. See the stretch goals below and learn how FEMME MAGNIFIQUE can expand to a hardcover edition with over 50 stories!

How can you get involved? Help us tell these stories about real women, celebrate their achievements, and ensure that history never forgets.  We have funding levels for every bank account from $5.00 to $5000.00.  And we offer incredible, exclusive rewards such as original artwork, limited-edition bookplates signed by the 100+ creators, VIP cocktail parties and more!

Most important, if you can't back us today and you're wondering what you can do to make a difference, use your voice.  Please share this campaign through word-of-mouth and social media to help others discover FEMME MAGNIFIQUE.  

Help us to create this book of female empowerment that's audacious, insightful and visually dynamic.  Support FEMME MAGNIFIQUE, a graphic novel anthology of comic-book short stories that salutes the accomplishments of powerful women throughout history and in the here and now.
