Power & Magic vol. 1, edited by Joamette Gil collects fifteen comics about queer witches ranging in style, mood, and message. Each comic is by a queer cartoonist of color, exploring ideas of love from intoxicating passionate romances, to finding best friends, to the love of parents and children.
Each magical tale is a true gem exploring strong feelings and other-worldly experiences! Standouts include Nivedita Sekar’s use of old fairy tales to tell a story of modern dating; Arianne Hokoki’s exploration of depression and companionship; Ann Xu’s love letter to ancestors; and Naomi Franquiz’s story of chosen family.
This publication includes a list of content warnings in the table of contents for trauma survivors to navigate reading the book.
