Quince is a 15-issue comic book series that follows a year in the life of Lupe, a 15-year-old girl who discovers that her quinceañera brings with it a super cool party . . . and superpowers. Her quince powers only last as long as she’s fifteen, so over the course of this rollercoaster year, we follow the adventures of Lupe as she figures out what it really means to be a hero.
Emphasizing diversity, family, and female empowerment, every single issue of Quince is currently available on ComiXology in both English and Spanish. Now, Fanbase Press is thrilled to provide the English-language collected trade paperback in one edition!
Printed copies of the Quince trade paperback are also available for sale in the Fanbase Press Online Store and on Amazon.
The Quince series has been named among the top progressive and female-created comics of 2017 by The Mary Sue and Comicon.com, highlighting the series' themes, values, and incredibly talented creative team. Comicon’s list of the 8 Most Progressive Comics of 2017 included such popular comic titles as Dark Horse Comics’ Once and Future Queen, and DC’s Mister Miracle and noted that Quince “captures every unglamorous emotion of being in high school without falling back on clichés, and the book’s therapeutic positive message about asking for help is handled with honesty and warmth.” The Mary Sue’s Favorite Female-Created Comics of 2017 included Quince among some of the top talent in the comic book industry, including Bitch Planet’s Kelly Sue DeConnick, and Animosity’s Marguerite Bennett and stated, “The world doesn’t have nearly enough Latina superheroes, and while Marvel has got one with more of a big name, Lupe is a superhero that I think a lot more of us can relate to.”
