Jet Girl

From the unhinged, yet lucid mind of Justin lee Fox and the cunning,
contemporary art style of Jacob Crippen comes the action adventure
Graphic Novel, “JET GIRL”!

This February, brace yourself for a
new espionage/sci-fi extravaganza. JUSTIN FOX’S JET GIRL, holds true to
the 30’s silver screen serial with a modern feel and pop culture
attitude. Dive head first into this full colored 80-page experience.

The project of JUSTIN FOX’S JET GIRL was originally written as 3
one-shots that correlated with one another but were separate adventures
in themselves. The first chapter follows Audey/Jet Girl, as she is sent
to destroy the Lunar Socialist’s moon base. There, she confronts Junior
Hitler, who is a failed clone of the Tyrant Dictator, and his nursemaid
Ilsa, who was suppose to be the clone’s queen, but since the experiment
failed she is now his caretaker. In this first story we are introduced
to Jet Girl herself and the mysterious English covert agent Magistrate
Mod, along with her most feared enemies. Who may or may not have
ulterior motives behind controlling the Lunar Nazi movement. Through,
skill, luck and puberty Jet Girl saves the moon and the day while
learning that Mod might know more than he lets on. The 2nd chapter takes
us 2 months from the Moon incident where Isla and J.H. have hired the
great great grandsons of the Red Barron; two bi wing pilots obsessed
with David Bowie and Jet Girl. It’s low-tech versus high-tech in this
high flying adventure! All the while Audey/Jet Girl is being watched by a
mysterious woman whose intentions are not yet clear, building up to the
shocking answer that follows in chapter 3. The 3rd and final chapter of
the 80-page Graphic Novel is the confrontation between Audey and the
original Jet Girl Cassandra Roe. While earlier stories are very
light-hearted this issue shows how Jet Girl can be very diverse in story
and atmosphere. In this final conflict we learn the past of the “Jet
Girl” program and the dark secrets that were hidden from our hero. A
choice must be made by Audey/ Jet Girl while her views about the program
and country are shattered. Only reading will you know what decision she
makes for her future and involvement in the Jet Girl program.

As Fox says: “Through the years, I have seen a lot of comics/movies
come out where the leading lady was either this un-killable beast or
some prissy runway model. I hated that idea, I felt there was no middle
ground. Why can’t a female lead be strong and fragile at the same time?
Like a Marion Ravenwood of Raiders of the Lost Ark fame. I wanted people
to see Jet Girl as this bad ass spy, who at times, could be rescued or
be the rescuer. That she wasn’t already some unstoppable force, but
through the story she learns to become something more and the reader
could progress as she does.
What we wanted from all this was to, yes, selfishly show off our
talents, and to create a character that women and men could find
appealing and look up to, breaking the barrier of guys only read about
guys and girls only read about girls. I wanted Jet Girl/Audey to be a
hero for all, someone you could root for and also be fearful for, that
she might die in the next issue. Jet Girl is a comic that can be enjoyed
by any age..”

The only draw back to creating Jet Girl is that Jacob Crippen
works a full-time construction job to support his family, while Justin
Lee Fox is full-time caretaker for his 77-year old Grandmother, who had a
massive stroke a year ago. They are two dreamers doing what we can to
get by and make sure their families are taken care of, while still
trying to bring to life a passion they have fought so hard for and have
given massive amounts of effort into doing.

Justin continues to say: ” The idea might be simple but it is far
from unoriginal. We believe the draw of this book will be that the main
protagonist is not only female, but one that does not intimidate a male
audience nor turn off a female following because she is an overly girly
character that just happens to also save the world. Also adding: ” We
wish to use Diamond to reach the mainstream comic book stores but it
takes a few issues in the can, pre-ordered and paid for before we see
any returns. All funds from our Kickstarter campaign, if successful, will go directly to completing and printing
the first few books. Specifically, it will cover the costs of talent,
production, printing, and promotion.”

In a comic world saturated by male heroes it is refreshing to have a
female character that does not try to be overly masculine, but is
comfortable being a feminine figure while not not coming off as weak nor
dependent on anyone but her self. Jet Girl is the heroine that keeps
red lip stick in her 12-eyed boots. A girl who gets the dirtiest jobs
done while still looking good doing so. She captures strength womanhood
while staying classy, she is Hepburn and Kahlo, Bond and Bronson. A high
stepping woman with a gun in her hand and a smile that keeps you
guessing.
