Nicki Fix’s Time Mix

Nicki Fix’s name deserves to be up in lights. Her dreams of leaving her small town behind for rock superstardom are pretty huge, but she and her friend Bobbie can’t get any attention online, and even less attention than that at the local roller rink where they play to their one fan, Liam, and an otherwise empty room. It’s not much of a start, but at least it’s theirs – that is, until one fateful night when they learn it’s getting torn down. If only they could go back in time and set things right . . . all of it.

With a story by Head Writer Cecil Castellucci, writer and lyricist Natalia Yanchak and Judy Alice Lee as the voice of Nicki, Nicki Fix’s Time Mix proves that creativity and the power of friendship is cool in every timeline.

The Curie Society

In 1903 Marie Curie broke the glass ceiling for other brilliant scientifically minded women. EEP created The Curie Society in that same mindset. When Maya, Taj, and Simone are faced against a mysterious rogue network intent on misusing future technology, they must use their complementary skills and specialized scientific knowledge to protect The Curie Society and save the world. Whether it’s Simone with her energy and quick thinking, Maya with her razor sharp intellect and strong drive, or Taj with her creative and rebellious innovative solutions, we can all emulate these strong women in our everyday lives. 

The society’s adventures in the ongoing graphic novel series from MIT Press are drawn by the one and only Sonia Liao and colored by Johanna Taylor. And they have much more art just waiting for you to discover! All of the science in the series was informed by the real-life studies of working female scientists, including Britt Wray, Dr. Ritu Raman, and many more!

Daughters of DC

When a global conspiracy threatens to expose DC’s most influential families, best friends Peyton, Natalie, and Celia must use their best judgment to uncover the mysterious figure that is responsible. As they dive further into the conspiracy they begin a long grueling journey to becoming their best selves. Natalie uses her rebelliously bold, impulsive, and outspoken personality to make her voice heard. Peyton questions the traditional expectations surrounding the role of women in her family as she learns that she’s got a mind of her own. And Celia strives to stand on her own two feet and questions if she can truly make it on her own. No matter what challenges we face in our lives it’s important to use our strengths as women to grow, rise through adversity, and become the best versions of ourselves. 

Daughters of DC comes from head writer Sasha Stewart and our tech-savvy main character Jaymes is voiced by the talented Kimberly Woods.

House of Slay

 Five prominent members of the New York fashion world—Phillip Lim, Prabal Gurung, Laura Kim, Tina Leung, and Ezra William—are granted incredible powers by a mysterious Phoenix deity. Together, these friends and heroes use their newfound powers to promote love and hope for humankind. In truly heroic fashion, the members of the House of Slay take on racism, hatred, bullying, and fear of the “other”. House of Slay is a place for everyone—an inclusive space representing not only the AAPI heritage of its founders but underrepresented voices from all walks of life. Reading House of Slay’s adventures inspires us to speak up for women’s issues and other underrepresented voices.

Artist Soo Lee and colorist Kimi Lee showcase their artistic skills to bring color and life to the thrilling, inspiring webcomic.

Stories and the characters in them hold power. When we see ourselves represented, we can tap into the power that lies within. EEP is one of many candles in a sea of darkness illuminating the way to equality, not just for women, but for other marginalized, misrepresented, or underrated groups of people. Beyond Women’s History Month, we will continue to create characters to inspire and motivate because everyone deserves to see the power within themselves through representation.
