Life in the (comic) fashion industry
Fashion and comics don’t really mingle much, but they probably should hang out more often. Case in point: Heroine Chic, a new comic that follows the antics of a Parsons grad, Zoe Porter, as she becomes a fashion assistant for bright-but-zany designer Dyna Cuff. The comic, which bears the tagline “Superheroes Are Always In Fashion,” was written by David Tischman and illustrated by Audrey Mok. The Devil Wears Prada-esque story is being released in 26 chapters; the first three segments are already on the site. Heroine Chic debuted on Monday on Line Webtoon, an online comic-book publishing platform (peruse its other, non-fashion-centric graphic tales here or on the publication’s app).
