Breaking Medussa's Spell - Pagan Comic
Proclaimed by: Tonya Kay
Proclaimed from: Hollywood, California
sample comic cover by Jim Balent
Famous comic illustrator, Jim Balent, and Hollywood actress, Tonya Kay, team up to create a story that will "break Medusa's spell".
Jim Balent, best known for his long run on Catwoman, only writes roles for unstoppable females. His popular comic, Tarot: Witch of the Black Rose, in it's 9th year, challenges socio-sexual stereotypes with it's artistic nudity, gender equality and pagan storyline. Jim Balent felt that Tonya Kay's life was already heroic and would inspire his readers.
In Issue 59, "Medusa's Stare", "Tonya Kay, (featured in Stan Lee's "Who Wants to Be a Super Hero", actress and real life Chaotic witch) finds herself trapped in a nether world of despair with Tarot. Surrounded by living stone serpents, the two witches must battle for their freedom or face eternity as statues by the magick of the Medusa."
"I want to see every woman daring to be her unique self. Whether it's biased news, an unrewarding job, a mediocre relationship or destructive marketing, women and men both find themselves trapped in unfulfilled lives - essentially; turned to stone" says Tonya Kay, whose real life is a courageous example of daring to be unique.
When she is not volunteering with endangered wildlife or writing on raw vegan health and nutrition, Tonya Kay is a film actress and television personality in high demand. This year alone, you have seen her on the Tonight Show With Conan O'Brien, ABC's Criminal Minds, Comedy Central's Secret Girlfriend, Showtime's Live Nude Comedy, the History Channel's More Extreme Marksmen and she just shot a role on the Hallmark movie of the week.
"My dreadlocks used to keep me from booking, but I knew it wasn't as simple as 'cutting my hair', " says Tonya Kay. "My uniqueness encompassed my spiritual beliefs, dietary choices and dangerous hobbies as well. I decided long ago that there is nothing wrong with me being bold, but rather there is something wrong with the uninteresting roles women are expected to play." Tonya Kay's choice to stay true to her self has rewarded her as Hollywood's go-to girl for what she calls "the fun" parts. "I want to see the archetype of the unstoppable woman written into roles - written into society."
"I am grateful for how my acting career has skyrocketed, though I am still looking forward to a film/tv writer to be a visionary, like Jim Balent, and write a break-through role for an unstoppable woman like me, " says Tonya Kay, who feels that art and performance affect world consciousness. Tonya Kay feels it is essential, now more than ever, for women and men to live their dreams. And she's not afraid to show them how.
