Valor is a comic anthology with fairy tales plenty of female heroines. Tales have been re-imagined or scripted from zero. The aim is to re-imagine or create brand new stories that are centered in strong leading female characters.
I found this project thrilling, and I decided to back it up (you have time till August 31, 2014). What got me in was not only the artwork, but the potential and the trend that it shows up. It focuses on female leading figures, it re-imagines fairy tales and creates new ones for nowadays audience.
These are not superhero comics, but fairy tale comics based on fairy tales. We are used to listen to traditional fairy tales with different types of female characters. In many instances, female characters are the ones who need the help of male characters. Here, however, females take the lead.
Independent artists are those who have the torch in portraying social changes. I hope this project shows up what it promises, and more. From pages from comics you can study pop culture. In Valor there will be re-imagined fairy tales with female strong leading characters. How have the authors imagined them? What will they tell us about pop culture? What are the tendencies in independent comics compared to commercial comics?
As I said, you still have time to back this project in Kickstarter. Will tell you more when I get my copy of the comics 🙂
