Written by Stephanie Williams and Valerie Complex, graphic novel Braxton: Rengenesis is the second chapter in a 7 book volume by media company Mayke. Life rarely offers us second chances to find out who we are and what our purpose is, but when it does whole new worlds are opened. With a bounty on her head, Braxton Sinclaire Turner goes on the run to save not only her life but also that of her son Malachi. With Echis, a highly trained league of female assassins chasing her, Braxton must make the choice to with give in or turn to John Henry, a man most know only through the tall tales of legend.
Braxton: Regenesis is an original story about second chances, motherhood, love, belief, and a Black queer mother fighting to protect her son’s future. There aren’t many stories like this that show the complexities of Black womanhood, and all we’re capable of once given the chance, and they are sorely needed. To get Braxton’s story published the creators Williams, Complex and the founder of Mayke, Ed Williams, need your help with funding for production costs. To do so they have started a KickStarter campaign to help with this endeavor. You can click here for more details and to donate.
