Guest post: Aneke says farewell to Damsels

With the final issue of Damsels out today, we thought it would be good to give the last word to the amazingly talented artist Aneke who it has been a genuine pleasure to work with on the series.


Rapa by Aneke

When I first read the script of Damsels I was surprised by the freshness of the story. The main characters were all beautiful women, each distinct from the other but all trying to rise above their personal difficulties, struggling to recover their lives and finding their own paths. I was captivated by the appearance of each one, Rapa, a red dreadlocks-hair full of tattoos (absolutely loved that), the little mermaid, small, not very shining and shy, the magnificent Talia, beautifully plump and sexy, Red, the  astonishing fearless wolf-hunter…..  I also won´t forget the lovely malevolent witches, as we all know, light shines stronger when in darkness, and the evil is there to confront the good, so, yeah, it´s part of life, too! But this girls, they all have this natural attractive essence that really got me going.

This was what made me love them all, that they were real women, different shapes, different measures, different beauty. Same bad-ass attitude 😉

And something I cannot omit is the fact that everything John and Leah wrote were so wonderfully included in this fantasy world I am totally in love with. Every time they got me references on films, books, Illustrations, artists and stories that have defined my entire view of Art. We share a special love for many, many works and tales and I think it´s something that can be noticed.

 Something, I gotta say, that has smoothed the entire route of drawing a whole series, which, at first seemed quite a long and difficult journey, due to the fact that it was my first one. But I gotta say I’m simply happy with the results, and I hope it can be perceived in the tale of these marvellous Damsels.

It´s been fantastic having been part of this gorgeous project and worked with this lovely couple of talented writers.

Thank you, Leah and John.  I truly enjoyed the party, and the fairies!

Hope you fellas love this precious story, as I do.
Just keep dreaming!

Damsels #12 out today (with preview pages)

The penultimate issue of Damsels is out today.

As her sister witch-queens squabble, the loathsome Carabosse’s quest for beauty sets her on the trail of the fairest damsel in the land. Meanwhile, deep beneath the ocean, the ancient and heartless Sea-Witch’s conceit renders her blind to the threat she has welcomed into her midst. And in the lush green foothills nearby, Rapa and her noble band suffer the bitter taste of heroism.
