‘Suffrajitsu: Mrs. Pankhurst’s Amazons’, A Graphic Novel Trilogy Featuring Edwardian Martial Artist Suffragettes

Suffrajitsu: Mrs. Pankhurst’s Amazons is a graphic novel trilogy telling an alternative history of the women’s suffrage movement in London in 1914. The story, published by Jet City Comics, features radical suffragette martial artists trained in Bartitsu as they fight for women’s rights. The fast-paced writing by Tony Wolf and bold, energetic art by João Vieira complement each other—and the subject matter—perfectly to move the story along and express the urgency the characters feel.

London, 1914: with Europe on the brink of war, the leaders of the radical women’s rights movement are fugitives from the law. Their last line of defence is the elite secret society of Amazons; women trained in the martial art of Bartitsu and sworn to protect their leaders from arrest and assault.
The stakes dramatically rise when the Amazons are forced into a deadly game of cat-and-mouse with an aristocratic, Utopian cult

The first issue is available for purchase for Kindle on Amazon and on comiXology. While the book is currently only available digitally, the publisher has plans to issue a printed collector’s edition.
