New York, NY and Los Angeles, CA, December 27, 2021 – Artists, Writers, & Artisans (AWA), the creative business pioneering ownership by creators, announced today that the new crime thriller comic book series, HIT ME will debut March 2, 2022 (solicitation date: December 22, 2021). One of the industry’s foremost developers of original stories across publishing, film, television and NFTs, AWA delivers an all-new explosive series from the mind of renowned author and creator Christa Faust (Bad Mother, Redemption, Money Shot) and artist Priscilla Petraites (Chariot, Rat Queens). Reaching back into her own life experiences, Faust’s story focuses on Lulu, a sex worker, who after witnessing a brutal execution, finds herself navigating early-90’s Atlantic City with a bag of diamonds trying to escape the men who are hunting her.


HIT ME, my third comic series with AWA, is an unfiltered and uncensored explosive story of female empowerment that, at its core, is a damsel in distress story, except the man is the damsel and the white knight is a marginalized young woman with a unique skill set,” said Faust. “I couldn’t have done this story justice without the talented Priscilla Petraites and the creatively supportive team at AWA.”
