Starring Sonya Devereaux adapts, in comic book form, each film in the career of self-absorbed, B-movie scream queen Sonya Devereaux, America's 306th Best Actress. No budget is too low, no dialogue too cheesy and no plotline too thin to keep Sonya from appearing in these straight to DVD flicks. From horror - to action - to erotic thriller, each issue is a laugh-filled send up of a different genre and movie, but they all have one thing in common: Sonya Devereaux and FUN! Okay, that’s two things. But just like gravy on mashed potatoes is delicious, Sonya in a crappy movie is hilarious!

Indiegogo Campaign - The Sequel!
American Mythology Productions had remarkable success in their first crowdfunding effort for the trade paperback collection of Starring Sonya Devereaux. The IndieGogo campaign reached its funding goal in 24 hours and AMP extended the effort to reach its stretch goal, resulting in additional exclusive rewards for backers. Now the publisher hopes to have a similar experience for the title’s new issue, Starring Sonya Devereaux: Warrior Woman Death Team 5, an action-packed sword and sorcery movie about a heroic barbarian queen forced out of retirement to search for kidnapped princess and re-assembles the mighty, all-female Death Team to combat an evil Lord.
Remarkably, creators/writers Todd Livingston & Nick Capetankis and twin brother illustrators Brendon & Brian Fraim, who were voted Best Writers and Best Artists of 2020 by CriticalBlast, fit an entire movie into each 32-page issue. Part of what makes this already unusual book more unique is that real life actors including Meredith Salenger, Damion Poitier, Magda Apanowicz, WWE’s Katarina Waters, and adult star Caroline Pierce add their likenesses to co-star in the movies with the fictitious Sonya; the new issue features gorgeous Carlee Baker (Robot Chicken) and Troy Fromin (Ox from Saved By the Bell).
The new IndieGogo campaign for Starring Sonya Devereaux: Warrior Woman Death Team 5 launched January 15. 2021 with the title slated for release in April 2021. The creators again promise great IGG rewards like an exclusive variant cover, an original all-new Sonya story for backers only, and the opportunity to be written & drawn into an issue. Warrior Woman: Death Team 5 features the latter reward with a backer appearing at the real pop culture convention WonderFest with Sonya. Livingston says, “This is not like other campaigns where the backer appears in a panel or two – our backer appears in a full 3 or 4 page scene with Sonya. We showed him the pages and he loves them!”
The Best Comic of 2020?!
She’s not just Hollywood’s 306th Best Actress, now she's America’s #1 comic book. “Starring Sonya Devereaux” has swept the three Comic Book Categories of the “Best of 2020” awards by respected pop culture site Critical Blast!

Our crowdfunding campaign is intended to recoup the printing cost for the new Starring Sonya Devereaux The Complete Movie Collection trade paperback. To everyone who contributed we say -- THANK YOU! We creators are not making a penny; every dollar raised is going to our publisher, American Mythology Productions. Though we met the posted goal in 24 hours, the real financial goal is much higher than what we asked for. By supporting our publisher and this book, you have supported the people at American Mythology who believed in us and for that, we are forever grateful.
As we said, to everyone who helped make this dream project come true, words cannot express our appreciation. To all at American Mythology, especially James Kuhoric (our “Fifth Beatle”), who supports the book - - Again, words cannot express our gratitude. Thank You!
There a lot said about our artwork on the series and it is always humbling. But what most do not understand is it is the clever, funny, inspiring writing of Todd Livingston and Nick Capetanakis that really drives the book. They deserve the credit more than we do. It’s difficult to convey the excitement we both feel waking up each morning knowing, “Today we get to draw more Sonya pages!” They are true Brothers-in-Arms and we are better people for working with them, and knowing them.
