So pleased to launch the “A Voyage to Panjikant” Kickstarter campaign! The goal of this campaign is to publish “A Voyage to Panjikant” in a single, full-color, 190-page volume.

This work is a historical-fictional graphic novel set in the 7th century and follows the story of sixteen-year-old Upach, a headstrong and spunky teenage girl whose greatest desire is to follow in her father Shafnoshak's footsteps and travel the Silk Road in order to become a successful merchant. The problem, however, is that women were rarely afforded the freedom to leave their hometowns.

This is a comic with feminist underpinnings; it's about living life outside of social expectations.

Please help spread the word to make “A Voyage to Panjikant” a reality!
