“Highlighting storylines with HIV in comic books has always been something I wanted to do.  When I developed “Lost Raven” in 2003 it won awards and was a positive step into the reducing stigma in a different demographic.  As someone who deals with HIV on a daily basis, I wanted to share my world in the pages of a comic book”. 

In the new “10th Muse” series we also we also tell the story of one of supporting characters coming out.

Greek mythology has documented the nine Muses, the inspirational daughters of the almighty god Zeus. But history forgot one—the 10th Muse. Emma Sonnet mysteriously disappeared five years ago during a summer trip to Greece celebrating her graduation from law school. Yesterday, she resurfaced just as mysteriously as the newly appointed District Attorney, with a unique take on the law. Battling evil in the courtroom by day, and in the shadows at night, Emma Sonnet is tipping the scales of justice her way, as the 10th Muse. Billionaire industrialist Grayson Bishop, charming and as deadly as a cobra, will as easily kill a rival as bury them in business. Now his sights are set on the 10th Muse, and he wants her dead in the worst way.

“We are excited to bring back this character after so many years.  She has been a comic book icon when we launched her.  I have been waiting for the right time to bring her back”’ said creator Darren G. Davis. “If you loved the old series, you will definitely enjoy the new one”. 

“10th Muse: Justice #1: There is a line of evil creatures with a vendetta against the 10th Muse.  Cronus, Circe and Sonnet have conjured a new villainess to the mix.  Meet Justice and she is after the Muse and her friends.  All this to try to bring back 10th Muse’s classic foe Medusa as well as the frightening Charybdis.
