Wayward Sisters: An Anthology of Monstrous Women

CA$ 35,646

1,073

From mermaids hunted for their meat to a ghastly beauty pageant, Wayward Sisters celebrates lady and non-binary monsters who are indelicate, impolite, and irrepressible. Inside you’ll find tales of undead motivational speakers, vengeance demons compelled to hunt family, and a gentle T. Rex who just wants to be loved. 

With a cover by Alise Gluškova (Abe Sapien, Letter 44), we’re excited to bring you fresh comics to sink your teeth into. Wayward Sisters: An Anthology of Monstrous Women is 216 full-colour pages printed at 6.75" x 10.25", featuring 25 new stories about non-binary and lady monsters. Our creators have roots all over the world, and they all identify as women or gender-nonconforming.

Miss Monster by Stephanie Cooke and Cara McGee  

Date Night by Allison Bannister and Ronnie Ritchie

Risks and challenges

We've published four volumes of the Toronto Comics Anthology series, and have successfully fulfilled all three of our previous Kickstarters. We have a history of delivering great books on schedule, and Wayward Sisters will be no exception.

Barring accident or injury, the book will be printed for February 1st, and we'll begin fulfilment the moment the book arrives.
