Transgender Protagonist Central Character In ˜ALTERS’

New AfterShock series to be the first ever superhero book with a central transgender character.

A new groundbreaking superhero series is on its way. ALTERS, created by Paul Jenkins, is the first-ever superhero comic book created by a mainstream writer to focus on a transgender protagonist.

ALTERS comes from a diverse team of creators composed of differing genders, gender identities, ethnic backgrounds and sexual orientations. The team consisted of writer Paul Jenkins, artist Leyla Leiz, colorist Tamra Bonvillain, and cover artist Brian Stelfreeze.

The story is set in a world that is struggling to accept the emergence of a new kind of mutant species known as alterations, or “Alters.” 

The narrative follows one young woman as she begins her transition from male to female. Soon she realizes she is also transitioning into a powerful Alter.

Threaten with persecution by the multi-powered fascist known only as Matter Man, our protagonist becomes Chalice, a hero for a new age.

As Chalice navigates the path to becoming her true self, she must juggle the complications of her civilian life and the responsibilities of her newfound power.

This marks the beginning of the saga of a young woman who can only really be herself…whenever she is not herself.

ALTERS will go on sale in September for $3.99. Click here for more information on ALTERS including the item code needed to order from physical stores.
