Quince is a 15-issue digital comic book series that follows a year in the life of Lupe, a 15-year-old girl who discovers that her quinceañera brings with it a super cool party . . . and superpowers. Her quince powers only last as long as she’s fifteen, so over the course of this rollercoaster year, we follow the adventures of Lupe as she figures out what it really means to be a hero. In Issue #3, Lupe discovers the secret of her superpowers from a most unlikely source: her abuela – who has a secret of her own…
Emphasizing diversity, family, and female empowerment, Quince’s creative team includes sisters Kit Steinkellner (writer – Z: The Beginning of Everything) and Emma Steinkellner (artist – Pow Slam Sparkle) and creator Sebastian Kadlecik (Penguins vs. Possums).
The comic book series is being released digitally through ComiXology on the 15th
of every month. Each issue will be released digitally in English and Spanish
, courtesy of translator Valeria Tranier (The Maze Runner, Friday Night Lights, Doctor Who
). In addition, the English-language series will be collected into a printed trade paperback that will be released on Monday, October 23, 2017
