check out the amandla stenberg co-written fantasy comic setting kickstarter on fire!

May 24, 2017

Amandla Stenberg is everywhere these days. Having just recently starred in the film Everything, Everything, the Hunger Games star is now working on a graphic novel project, and has already raised more than $25,000 for its completion on Kickstarter!

The fantasy comic is called NIOBE, and the description from the Kickstarter is below:

“Between two warring nations, in the heart of Western Ujoa, there is a haven to those who have lost their way. Some say you can rebuild your mind and spirit upon the mountains of Ugoma. For a Half-Elven (Sin-Galemren) girl with off-colored eyes, it is a chance to flee a dark past, and rest safely within the secret monatery of her ancestors. But you cannot run from destiny, or hide from the Devil.

Set within the original fantasy world of Asunda, Niobe: She is Life is a coming of age Beauty and the Beast love story threaded with murder and mystery that leads to all out war.”

So dope! Click here to support and learn more about the project, and check out some images from NIOBE below!:
