Joamette Gil is a queer Afro-Cuban cartoonist who, earlier this year, put out the call to other women of color to see if anyone was interested in making comics about queer witches. It turns out that quite a few were, and that was the origin of Power & Magic: The Queer Witch Comics Anthology. The black and white book features 15 original stories about witchcraft and the queer women of color who practice it, stretching across genres and featuring a wide variety of art styles. Now Gil has launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund publication and pay the artists.
