For more information regarding these fantastic projects:
Quince is a 15-issue digital comic book series that follows a year in the life of Lupe, a 15-year-old girl who discovers that her quinceañera brings with it a super cool party . . . and superpowers. Her quince powers only last as long as she’s fifteen, so over the course of this rollercoaster year, we follow the adventures of Lupe as she figures out what it really means to be a hero. Emphasizing diversity, family, and female empowerment, Quince’s creative team includes sisters Kit Steinkellner (writer - Z: The Beginning of Everything) and Emma Steinkellner (artist - Pow Slam Sparkle), creator Sebastian Kadlecik (Penguins vs. Possums), and translator Valeria Tranier (The Maze Runner, Friday Night Lights, Doctor Who). The comic book series is being released digitally through ComiXology on the 15th of every month in English and Spanish. In addition, the English-language series will be collected into a printed trade paperback that will be released on Monday, October 23, 2017.
Since early 2014, Dr. Andrea Letamendi and Brian Ward have revisited Batman: The Animated Series through the analytical eyes of a clinical psychologist. Heralded as one of the greatest storytelling vehicles of all time, the television show’s tone, subject matter, and depth in storytelling and character development are exemplary and undergo the psychological analysis it deserves in The Arkham Sessions. Each week, the co-hosts watch the series, in production order, with a keen eye toward revealing the very real psychology behind its characters and then put Batman and his “Rogues Gallery” on the couch for a fun, insightful weekly session.
