Alice in Leatherland’s Iolanda Zanfardino Returns with Hecate’s Will
Hecate devoted her life to changing the world through art, but she despairs that it’s all for nothing. When she commits to one last try with her most ambitious and heartfelt street-art experiment yet, its impact may change everything.
Written and illustrated by Alice in Leatherland’s Iolanda Zanfardino, Hecate’s Will is a new comic book mini-series launching in November 2021 from Black Mask Studios. Iolanda sets her sights on a street-smart adventure that celebrates outsider-art, diverse found family, and never giving up on your dreams.
In Hecate’s Will, we meet legendary NYC graffiti artist Hecate, who has decided to retire and abandon her mission of changing the world through art–but, before she quits, she’s going to create one final street-art experience: a graffiti scavenger hunt through the streets of Manhattan that will lead her fans to a final message and artistic testament.
As her street-art experiment catches fire with young NYC artists and activists, Hecate’s best friend ropes her into working on a revival of the musical ‘RENT’ by a joyous ensemble of LGBTQIA+ artists who remind her how art brings people together, challenging all of Hecate’s expectations and assumptions. But will it be enough to inspire Hecate to renew her convictions and remain true to her artistic self?
