Princess Witch Boy is a fantasy memoir by STORM, weaving together true tales of one boy’s story with the adventures of three different women from his imagination. The first issue debuted in November of 2009 at the Alternative Press Expo in San Francisco. The second issue debuted at Swankety Swank’s Team Valor event and features the shape-shifting super-spy Replica! Enjoy! Click on images to make them larger in Flickr. Feel free to leave your thoughts and reflections in the comments section!
This past weekend I worked my stuff at the Writers Old Fashioned table, selling Princess Witch Boy comics and candles, and giving Heroic Tarot readings at WonderCon 2011! The awesome science-fiction/pop culture blog io9 named my X-Men Tarot “Best of WonderCon Floor”! That’s me sandwiched in between mainstream movies Green Lantern and Sucker Punch (scroll down for my super cheesy photo) in the title!
Many thanks to everyone who came out to the booth and made a purchase or just said hello! I enjoyed seeing so many familiar faces and met a ton of new ones! Here’s some highlights from my experience!
If you are looking for a Heroic Tarot reading this weekend, you will have to attend WonderCon! I will be at the Writers Old Fashioned table in Artists’ Alley (#AA-088) on Friday from 1-7pm, Saturday from 1-7pm and Sunday from 11-5pm. Princess Witch Boy candles, original artwork, archival prints, and the last remaining copies of issue #2 will be available for purchase! You can read Princess Witch Boy #1 for free here!
After WonderCon, I have openings on Friday the 8th (3, 4, 5, 6pm), Saturday the 9th (2, 3, 4, 5, 6pm) and Monday the 11th (2, 3, 4pm). Call 415.932.6615 or email HeroicTarot(at)gmail(dot)com to make an appointment!
Princess Witch Boy is a fantasy memoir, weaving together true tales of one boy’s story with the adventures of three different women from his imagination. This first issue debuted in November of 2009 at the Alternative Press Expo in San Francisco. As of this writing, both printings of Princess Witch Boy #1 are out of print. To celebrate, I have decided to share it with you! Issue #2, featuring the shape-shifting super-spy Replica is still available and can be purchased here.
“I thought, perhaps from the juxtaposition of princess, witch, and boy that this was probably a cute and breezy, fairy tale like adventure. Well, breezy hardly, though it is a tale touching on the faerie world and as Storm refers to his work, a fantasy memoir.”
“Light is the first of the painters. There is no object so foul, that intense light will not make it beautiful.” ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
Let there be light! STORM presents Sacred Superhero Candles! Pictured above are five candles covered with original artwork from STORM’s independent memoir fantasy comic Princess Witch Boy. The latest issue–and archival prints–are available at Swankety Swank and on etsy!

They celebrate the courage, the tenacity and the visionary spirit that it takes to be your best self!

An Emma Frost Salon
by Ken Kneisel
Welcome to White Queen Wednesday, gentle reader. Today I draw your attention to this sweet Emma Frost sketch by Lovekiller artist Jess K and talk a little bit about my experience at this year’s Alternative Press Expo here in San Francisco.
All of our favorite mutant ladies as rendered by Jess K reflect her own personal sense of style with their dramatically defined eyes and bountiful flowing locks, and Emma is no different. Although Emma has the added effect of her characteristic cold severity and pale platinum blonde tresses. I love that Emma is wearing her New X-Men era Frank Quitely designed daring X-cutout ensemble here, as simply indicated by her high necked pointed collarpiece. The cocked eyebrow really conveys that unmistakable Emma attitude.
The day is dedicated to comics, cartoons, haunted house memories and tarot readings!
Artists will be drawing all 22 cards of the Tarot. The drawings will be scanned on the spot and used for limited edition poster that shows all the cards and will be sold as a fundraiser for the museum.
WATCH: the Tarot Card Comic Art Jam -all day Watch as local artist draw the cards of the Tarot for a special fundraiser art print for the museum.LEARN: Try your hand at drawing creepy creatures at our in-gallery art table.
