Amandla Stenberg is making a comic book

From the Huffington Post:

Amandla Stenberg says we need more badass girls — and she’s helping to make that happen.

The 16-year-old actress, who is widely-recognized for her activism around social and cultural issues — is, yet again, speaking up and speaking out for women of color who often go under- and misrepresented. This time, Stenberg is using her talent to create an exciting new comic centered around the experiences of a young black warrior woman named Niobe Ayutami.

The comic, titled “NIOBE: She is Life,” follows the protagonist on her adventures to help save the world. Along the way, Niobe, who is half elf and half human warrior, is also on a journey of self-discovery to find out exactly who she is and all the powerful things she can do.

The comic looks AMAZING:

Congratulations to Amandla and Stranger Comics for bringing this unique character to life!
