Amandla Stenberg’s New Project is the Perfect Dose of #BlackGirlMagic

By Posted on 0 1 m read

Amandla Stenberg is no stranger to serving as a voice for those that are often overlooked and ignored. This time she’s taking her efforts a step further and putting them in comic book form.

In her latest project Stenberg, 16, has partnered with LA’s Stranger Comics, to produce a new comic book series titled NIOBE:She Is Life. The series will focus on Niobe Ayutami, an “…orphaned wild elf teenager and would-be savior of the vast and volatile fantasy world of Asunda.” She is on a path of self-discovery exploring all the powers she possesses and how she can use them pave the way for her bright future ahead.

“She is on a path to a destiny that will test her faith and her will, something we can all relate to.  But there’s never been a character quite like her — one who shatters the traditional ideal of what a hero is. We need more badass girls!” Stenberg said in a recent statement for Huffington Post.

If we’re talking badass girls, we can’t think of a better person for the role. NIOBE: She Is Life will be available November 4 and can be pre-ordered and purchased here.
