What if a magical 2D fox teleported into your washing machine?

LING (SHORT FILM / COMIC BOOK )

Written by MARIE IIDA & DENNIS LIU, Illustrated by MARIKO YAMASHIN

PREMISE: AN ASIAN-AMERICAN SUPERHERO!! She’s not sexy, she’s not good at math, she’s not submissive, and she skateboards. LING, a Chinese American teen with a birthmark on her face, struggles with cyberbullying and self-image in high school. One day, Kitsy, a magical three legged fox, teleports into her washing machine to tell her that she’s a "which”: she has the ability to transform to be, whichever girl she wants to be. 

(Imagine a Teen ALIAS meets BUFFY, with a “S-witchery” twist. Picture SPACE JAM but with anime! Not to mention a magical fox who teleported into her washing machine!)

Ling is the second diverse superhero we will release and create.

Ling’s not a model minority and she’s not oversexualized. Ling is not a “Mary Su.” In fact, Ling constantly is getting her butt kicked. Yet she gets up. Day after day. And she fights. (With a transformable laser canon turned hover skateboard broomstick - aka the kaboomstick).
