David Tischman is the latest to join the LINE Webtoon lineup with his first digital comic, Heroine Chic, out today that merges fashion with superheroics, drawn by Audrey Mok and coloured by Tanya Horie.
They describe it as “the first-ever mash-up of superheroes and the fashion industry” which it really isn’t, indeed certain aspects seem pulled straight from Edna Mode in The Incredibles.
Set in a New York City full of superheroes, Heroine Chic centers around main character, 23 year-old Zoe Porter, who just graduated from Parsons and dreams of launching her own line at Fashion Week. Until then, she’s working as stylist/assistant to Dyna Cuff, the biggest designer of superhero costumes in New York. Dyna is a cutting edge fashion genius but a difficult boss, and her super-powered clients are vain and insecure.
Or as a certain Edna used to say…
