The graphic novel for A Voice In The Dark, a book that my husband, Larime Taylor, writes, draws, and letters with his mouth; and whose covers (and interiors starting next arc in September) I paint, is out now at your local comic shop or on amazon.com, and is also going on sale for $6.99 at Comixology (as well as $0.99 for individual issues) the 29th through the 31st.
A lot of folks have complained that there are very few comics out there with women protagonists; strong women protagonists; strong women supporting characters; strong women of color as protagonists and supporting characters, strong LGBTQ women as protagonists and supporting characters, and all of these doing and talking about more than just their boyfriends. That is this kind of book. The art is not T&A. The characters are not exploited for funsies.
It has gotten many good reviews and critical acclaim. But we are still trying to get the word out to the communities who want these kinds of books, and so I’m meeping Tumblr to let whoever know. We are still trying to break even on the sales of the trade, so if you guys WANT more of these books to be created, PLEASE show publishers that you will support them.
We can’t afford to keep making it for no profit: Larime and I live under the poverty line. He is a quadriplegic and I am a paraplegic. We have medical expenses, rent, grocery bills. If this book doesn’t sell, or the arc after it, we will have to work on something that will, and that’s usually whitewashed stories about bros or women with big titties.
We love this book and we want to keep making it.
You can get issue 1 for free here if you want to read before you buy.
