Author and artist Laura Moidel Acevedo has just released:
Transmute: Integration which is the culmination of her Transmute project. This fantasy themed graphic novel integrates the Transmute: The Aspects series which tells the story of a transgender persona who is fragmented by a spiritual force into 7 aspects so that they can find themselves and become whole. The story and artwork is essentially the same, the difference between Integration and The Aspects is that Integration is 169 pages long and has the text imbedded in the images as narration and dialogue bubbles as is typical in comics and graphic novels. The Aspects is a series of 6 books, each of which are 26 to 33 pages long and are large-type illustrated books with unobstructed art. The Transmute concept is to take the reader on the author’s emotional and spiritual journey of her transgender identity formation. The fantasy characters go on a quest guided by magical amulets for the purpose of learning about themselves and finding one another.
The books are appropriate for readers ages 12 and up who are interested in or are going through the process of transgender identity formation.
