  • The Watch is a fantasy setting where clans have united against the Shadow—an unknown force that can corrupt the minds of men, so women and non-binary femme people have been recruited to form a military order to fight the threat.
  • Femme Magnifique is a collection of comic-book stories celebrating women who crack ceilings, take names, and change the game.
  • The SELFLY Camera is a phone case and flying drone all in one.
