“Suffrajitsu: Mrs. Pankhurst’s Amazons”: a thrilling tale of Suffragette super-heroines

Mrs Pankhurst's Amazons

Coming in early 2015: Suffrajitsu: Mrs. Pankhurst’s Amazons, a three-part graphic novel series to be set in the Foreworld universe.

Taking place in the year 1914, the trilogy will chronicle the adventures of Persephone Wright, who leads a secret society of radical Suffragettes known as the Amazons.  As highly-trained saboteurs, insurgents and bodyguards, skilled in the martial art of Bartitsu, they’re fighting for women’s rights in a deeply male-dominated society.

When the stakes dramatically escalate, the Amazons are thrust into a deadly game of cat and mouse against an aristocratic, utopian cult …

Featuring a dynamic cast of both historical and fictional characters, Suffrajitsu: Mrs. Pankhurst’s Amazons will be written by Tony Wolf and published by 47North, the science fiction, horror and fantasy imprint of Amazon Publishing.
