Kickstarter Alert: THE INVENTION OF E.J. WHITAKER (Steampunk!)

This Kickstarter comic book project looks super exciting and I’m crossing my fingers hard for its success:

THE INVENTION OF E.J. WHITAKER

Conceived by indie comic book and animation sister-team, Shawnee´and Shawnelle Gibbs, “The Invention of E.J. Whitaker” is a 24-page comic book tale mixing elements of Adventure, Romance, Historical Fiction and Steampunk to tell the story of one heroine’s epic journey through the cultural and gender land mines of the early 20th century to become a bonafide inventor.

Imagine a time in which your week might include being assaulted by patent-jackers, a surprise run-in with Nikola Tesla and catching up on “the tea” through actual tea time with Madame CJ Walker….with no Instagram to capture it all…

Welcome to the world of Ada Turner and her secret life as EJ Whitaker.

The Kickstarter campaign starts February 25, 2016. Click here for more information.
