“At some point this year I remember sitting in my apartment thinking “Working on a comic and working towards an anime is a must-happen for me. In this lifetime. It will be a lot of hard work, but it will be worth it” and then @strangercomics happened. Those who know, know that this is a HUUUUUUGE deal for me.” she wrote.

“When we started brainstorming for the She-Tribe comic, Thuso breathed new life into Niobe and the vulnerable character relationships with such thought and care. Thuso is a rare spirit who speaks of many lives lived, here and before, and I couldn’t be more excited to share with our fans what we’ve got in store for Niobe and Asunda,” he added.
