Madéleine Flores

Madéleine’s work varies from the folkish quick ink sketch comics portraying one of her mothers old superstitions to humours comics that address things such as body types and an ongoing comic about the Greatest Warrior who goes around slaying monsters (when she want to) and looking fabulous.

Madéleine Flores work explores issues such as gender stereotypes without (seemingly) even meaning to. The Greatest Warrior for example is a strong independent warrior who expresses a feminine identity and is not afraid of being feminine. Something most media outlets criticise a hero for mewing demonizing femininity so much it becomes synonymous with weakness.
