  Illustrator, art educator, and feminist Maggie Lynn Negrete needs your help to get her badass coloring book off the ground. Yes, I did just throw badass and coloring book together, and I mean it. Maggie is the creator of the Adventuring Princesses series, a coloring/comic book that features two young princesses the way they should be featured -- doing awesome ass-kicking things. An excerpt from the Kickstarter campaign: "Adventuring Princesses relates the stories of Princess Dara of Robles and Princess Alva of the Dark Crescent and their destinies...
