Riley Katz is your average millennial – living in her mom’s basement and working as a part time yoga-instructor, while her bachelor’s degree in English makes a nice coaster for the water on her nightstand.
Feeling helpless and adrift, Riley’s life is about to spin even further out of control when a former classmate sends her a friend request on Facebook, asking to hang out at her hotel bar and catch up on old times.
What seemed like a simple meet up for drinks turns into a reverse-intervention.
Peri Edwards has gathered the old crew of friends together dredging up memories of shrieking ambulance sirens, near-death experiences, and life-altering injuries.
After years of research, Peri’s finally come up with the answer to what happened that fateful night, and she has gathered everyone together to reveal the truth—
They have superpowers.
And she’s going to prove it to them.
Why should You Help In The Element?
Queer Lady Superheroes.
No, but really. I set out to create an origin story for a group of superheroes that was trans-inclusive, not afraid of the word “bisexual” and acknowledged asexuality, featured more than just token characters of color, addressed disability and neurodiversity, and tried to create a character driven story.
Each Issue of In The Element focuses a different character –
Kendra - trans woman, martial artist, complete control freak Alegra - former child prodigy, over-achieving disabled lipstick lesbian Teagan - 100% aro, 100% ace, 100% done with your shit Peri - pansexual problem-child turned problem adult
–and her perspective on the night in question before culminating in issue 6
