Comic book fans are in for a real treat with Popova.
Written and created by Dre Torres and Alex Valdes, a New York / Miami based filmmaking duo best known for their feature-length documentary THE LAST TAINO. The book features stylish black & white artwork by Yasmin Liang (STAR TREK, STEED AND MRS. PEEL), and variant cover art by Amancay Nahuelpan (CLANDESTINO, YOUNG TERRORISTS).
Popova grips you within the first few pages with an unexpected assassination and dives right into things soon after. As a comic book fan I’m impressed with not only the protagonist, the art, but the flow of the story. It’s an independent comic and Issue #1 is a gem in your collection or vault. I’m looking forward to seeing where the the story is at by issue 100.
Order your copy of Popova now and you might get a pin and a trading card… you just might.
You can also get a copy of the original cover and the variant cover and a poster.
Can’t wait for the next issue!
The new comic book POPOVA, a revenge fantasy in the vein of Inglorious Basterds, explores the idea of reversing society’s gender stereotypes by depicting women in the role of the aggressor. According to co-creator Dre Torres, “Historically, men have used violence to oppress women. The characters in our book simply decided to fight fire with fire. They don’t protest, they don’t campaign. They kill.”
