Discover the True Stories of Marginalized Trailblazers in New Graphic Novel Series Seen
BOOM! Studios has announced Seen: True Stories of Marginalized Trailblazers, an all-new original graphic novel series debuting in September 2020 from a group of acclaimed comics creators, including Jasmine Walls, Bex Glendining, Birdie Willis, Rii Abrego, Anthony Oliveira, and Killian Ng. This brand new graphic novel series illuminates the triumphs and struggles of important historical figures who aren’t found in traditional textbooks, but deserve to be remembered for their contributions to humanity and their inarguable strength and courage in the face of impossible odds.
Seen: True Stories of Marginalized Trailblazers will be published through the company’s award-winning BOOM! Box imprint, with each original graphic novel spotlighting a different trailblazer who changed the course of history. In this new series, you’ll find the stories of the real groundbreakers who impacted our world for the better. They’re the heroes— the inventors, the artists, the activists, and more—whose stories you won’t want to miss.
In the first graphic novel of the series, Seen: Edmonia Lewis, writer Jasmine Walls and artist Bex Glendining present the true story of Edmonia Lewis, the woman who changed America during the Civil War by becoming the first sculptor of African-American and Native American heritage to earn international acclaim.
