New Sci-Fi Comic from She Makes Comics Producer Julian Darius


Thank you for your support of She Makes Comics! It was a real labor of love for all involved, and it only became a reality due to your help!

We're excited to tell you about a new comic book being produced by Dr. Julian Darius, who founded Sequart Organization and was a producer on She Makes Comics.

Martian Comics is a trippy, retro sci-fi comic that harkens back to early Vertigo in its blend of genre fiction and literary intelligence. Julian has already mostly funded the issue and is looking for finishing costs for a 52-page special featuring seven stories by different artists.

Julian is mostly known as a comics scholar. In fact, he recently published Classics on Infinite Earths: The Justice League and DC Crossover Canon through us. In addition to She Makes Comics, he's had a hand in everything Sequart's done over the years. So while Martian Comics isn't a Sequart endeavor, we hope you'll take a chance to check out his Kickstarter as he ventures into making comics!

Jackie Ormes Doc


Thanks to going over our goal, we were able to produce this short bonus documentary about Jackie Ormes, a pioneering African American female cartoonist from the early days of comics. Learn some more about this awesome woman.

And, if you haven't received your reward from the campaign, let us know. Everything has shipped out, so if you don't have it yet, we'll need to resend it. Thanks again for your support, hope you enjoy this extra bonus.

Update on Jackie Ormes documentary


One other update for today!

Some of you have asked about the Jackie Ormes mini-documentary, which you may notice is not on the DVD. Due to some issues with the DVD manufacturing, we will be releasing the Jackie Ormes documentary separately, early next year. We appreciate your understanding.

Look for another update on that front shortly!
