POWER & MAGIC is a comics anthology about queer witches of colour. The book is over 160 pages long, black and white, and contains 15 original stories blending fantasy, drama, humor, and romance.
The witch is an icon of power. She represents transcendence, healing, insight, defiance, feminine monstrosity, and a sacred relationship to the self, the community, and the universe. From the euphoria of holding the stars in your grasp, to the sacrifices we make to reach them, POWER & MAGIC explores what it means to be a person of power in all its complexity.
POWER & MAGIC is edited by Joamette Gil, a queer Afro-Cuban cartoonist and founder of P&M Press.
