Orlando, FL, February 07, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- This February, the comic world's “Black Panther” won't be the only comic book hero making black history when award-winning writer, Shequeta L. Smith, releases the third installment of her female empowered graphic novel series, Rayven Choi, on February 7, 2018.
The graphic novel series is centered on the story of Rayven Choi, a young African-American woman who witnesses the murder of her parents by a hitman. Choi finds herself growing up in Seoul, Korea where she’s adopted and is influenced by the local culture. As an adult, Choi returns to America to uncover the truth behind her parents’ murders with the intention of finding the hitman who destroyed her family.
The first two books—published under the "Shero Comics" indie imprint— have quickly gained popularity amongst seasoned comic book fans. The books have been highlighted in several popular blogs, podcasts, and newspapers and were most notably featured in Publisher’s Weekly under the evocative headline: “The World Needs More Sheroes.”
Shortly after the release of Rayven Choi Chapter #3, Smith will be kicking off her International “Shero Universe” book tour in Orlando, Florida at female-owned comic book shop, Gods & Monsters. Smith is scheduled to meet and greet fans and will be autographing copies of the first three books of her groundbreaking series from 5pm to 8pm on February 12, 2018. Gods & Monsters is located at 5421 International Drive in the Orlando Crossings plaza.
Although Smith and Shero Comics are based in Los Angeles, Orlando was an ideal place for Smith to kick off her book tour.
"I created Rayven Choi with the idea that I could present a black female character who would appeal to an international audience. Kicking off the Shero Universe tour in one of the most multi-cultural places in America gives me an opportunity to fulfill this goal," said Smith.
Rayven Choi Chapter #3 will be available as an eBook on Amazon Kindle, Comixology, Barnes & Noble Nook, Kobo, and iTunes. Physical copies will be on sale on the Shero Comics webstore and at several brick and mortar stores in Los Angeles, North Carolina, Chicago, and Florida.
