About This Project


Cherise Fortella


Taking from myth and legend stories as many modern tales do, I extracted the tale told in this series from the old story of Molly Whuppie. The story is of a courageous young woman; one who is strong and can take care of herself and her sisters. Turning it into a comic book tale, the focus was to show Molly as a tomboy character different from the way female characters are general portrayed in comics.

Women in comics are often over-sexualized and expected to be very feminine even if they are strong. This series poses a different way of showing these characters.

A cover captures attention and this is the reason why I chose to focus on the art of the covers of comic books, which in many cases determines if the reader is going to pick up the comic book and read it.
