    Coming in 2014: Mrs. Pankhurst's Amazons, a three-part graphic novel series to be set in the Foreworld universe.

    Taking place in the year 1913, the trilogy will chronicle the adventures of Persephone Wright, who leads a secret society of radical Suffragettes known as the Amazons. As highly-trained saboteurs, insurgents and bodyguards, skilled in the martial art of Bartitsu, they fight for women's rights in King Edward's London. When the stakes dramatically escalate, the Amazons are thrust into a deadly game of cat and mouse against an aristocratic, utopian cult ...

    Featuring a dynamic cast of both historical and fictional characters, Mrs. Pankhurst's Amazons will be written by Tony Wolf and published by 47North, the science fiction, horror and fantasy imprint of Amazon Publishing.

    That's one step closer to its inevitable release as a terrible movie starring whatever tween idols exist in a couple of years.

    I parry your cynicism as effortlessly as a radical Suffragette Bartitsu-ing old-time London cops over a fence:

    Gadzooks, I've been parried, Perceval!

    We'll see who's laughing when Justin Beiber is starring as the leader of a musical martial artsish revolution staffed by Selena Gomez and Miley Cyrus, thwarting the machinations of the the evil but also musical leader of an anti-dancing league (Steven Seagal).

    Tony Wolf? I hear he's a cool guy.
    Any plans for an audiobook?
    The fool thinks himself immortal,
    If he hold back from battle;
    But old age will grant him no truce,
    Even if spears spare him.

    He's not that cool.

    Some of the Foreworld text novels have been released as audiobooks; does that ever happen with graphic novels?
