Teen Graphic Novel Series 'Style Engineers Worldwide' Makes Comixology Debut
Global Tinker (globaltinker.com), is proud to announce that its graphic novel series, ‘Style Engineers Worldwide’, is now available on Amazon’s Comixology distribution platform.
'Style Engineers Worldwide' follows the adventures of Tilly Tailor, a 16-year-old budding fashion designer with a big secret: she has a Ph.D. in Computer Engineering. Tilly and her diverse group of friends form the “Style Engineers Worldwide Circle” by marrying fashion and technology to tackle humanitarian issues – ranging from the prevention of rhino poaching in Tanzania to the creation of medical wearables for young hospital patients.
“We are thrilled to partner with Comixology and join their family of world-class properties,” says Global Tinker’s Sep Riahi. “In doing so we hope to broaden our audience and promote 'Style Engineers Worldwide's' ethos of resilience, applied creativity and global empathy. Now – more than ever it seems – the world needs inspirational superheroes who can create tangible solutions to address our modern ills.”
Written by Kristen O. Bobst and illustrated by Sonia Liao, 'Style Engineers Worldwide' is a visually stunning graphic novel series that encourages social impact and STEM education for a diverse audience. Bobst notes, “It’s been such an exciting journey to grow along with these characters and to witness people enjoying these stories and becoming aware that they too can make a difference.” Her first iteration of the concept was a Top 10 Finalist out of 2,000+ global submissions at The Next MacGyver Competition, which focused on discovering the next great TV show to inspire females to pursue STEM fields.
Print editions of ‘Style Engineers Worldwide’ are available on Amazon.com. Other digital editions can be found on the Kindle and iBooks stores.
