Lockett Down Productions is a small press, independant company that specializes in creating cutting edge Sci-Fi comics with the female reader in mind, (men are more than welcome to read as well!).
We are one of a kind in our goal to not only get more women and girls to read comics to but to show a more realistic portrayal of them in our books. Our new project, "Ice Witch" does just that! The series is about a young woman named Chenoa, who was the leader of an intergalactic assassination squad, then left them to become a wife and mother only to have them murder her husband and hunt her baby.
I have have been promoting this story for quite sometime and the response I get when I tell people the story is overwelming. For women, particularly from those of color, have not seen a character like Ice Witch. She is in complete control of her sexuality, takes pride in her skills as a warrior and mother, and is brutal yet loving all at the same time. Ice Witch speaks to our basic instinct to protect those we love from whatever harm that might come to them. Young women need to see more positive images in the media. This story evokes that; its whole premise is based on 'following the beat of your own drum', no one elses.
What We Need & What You Get!
In order to publish the series, LDP will need a total of $3000. The money will go to printing costs, promotional materials and paying all the artists envolved with the production of the series. Every single cent that is donated will go straight into the project and the fruit of all our, (that includes you too!!) will be seeing this cherished project come into reality.
