Slice Of Life – A Queer Romance Story

Slice of Life – A Queer WEBTOON With an Anime Twist Launches on Kickstarter October 18th 

New York, New York (October 4th) Following Bi Visibility: A Bisexual Anthology that reached over $30K and 1300 backers on Kickstarter, Kat Calamia and Phil Falco are set to launch a new queer project for the platform on Monday, October 18thWEBTOON’S Slice of Life #1. 

When gritty anime protagonist, Lady Vengeance, is brought to the real world by a super fan, she’ll learn there’s more to life than darkness and revenge…and she’ll find love with the super fan’s twin sister – a kind-hearted cheerleader.

Slice of Life is a queer romance that deconstructs the “Slice of Life” genre, unpacking the importance of everyday narratives to tell a larger story about the meaning of life from the point of view of a fictional character.

Slice of Life #1 will be collecting the first four chapters from WEBTOON in a new sequential format. It’s a 44-page comic book that includes a 4-page EXCLUSIVE story told in the future where Yuriko and Lucy are a COUPLE!
