Kayden Phoenix- A New Type of Princess Crowned at SDCC23!


Get ready for the highly anticipated San Diego Comic Con! Amidst the excitement, Kayden Phoenix is making a triumphant return, bringing forth an entirely new universe known as The Majestics. Following the groundbreaking debut of A La Brava, the first- ever Latina superhero team in comic book history, Phoenix now unveils a captivating lineup of comic books featuring Native and Latina princesses.

As both the creator and writer, Kayden Phoenix, who has long been an enthusiastic attendee of the convention, takes pride in standing on the other side of the table with her own publishing company, Phoenix Studios. Inspired by the grandeur of SDCC, Phoenix intends to empower and invigorate her audience through her Latina princesses. Her goal is to break free from the limited portrayal of skin colors that society has imposed upon us for so long.

The significance of diverse representation in Phoenix’s comics has garnered support from prominent news channels such as Disney/ABC Eyewitness News 7, Spectrum News 1, KTLA 5, and Telemundo, amplifying the reach of her work.

By combining Phoenix’s imaginative stories with the talent of emerging Latina artists like 2D animator Fer Lozada (Mexica, The Majestics), known for her work on HBO, Netflix, Discovery Kids, and Mattel and newcomer Fanny Arteaga (Swan, Macab), the result is a stunning collection of progressive art that caters to new audiences.

Among the princesses introduced by Phoenix Studios, we have Mexica, an Aztec princess who embarks on a journey outside of Aztlan to solve three riddles as part of her princess initiation. Following her is Alora, a witch princess who competes with other “possible” princesses to prove herself as the true princess. Lastly, we have Novi, the space princess who finds herself on the run from corporations seeking to exploit her tachyons. In the near future, Phoenix Studios will release Swan, the water princess who gets abducted by pirates, and Macab, the death princess who ventures to Earth to correct a mistake she unintentionally made. All of these princesses unite in a thrilling team-up adventure known as The Majestics.

“Comic book superheroes give kids something to look up to and it helps if those heroes look something like the kids.” – ABC Eyewitness News 7

“Everyone needs a superhero, but if you’re a woman or a person of color, chances are you won’t find yourself reflected on the big screen, much less a comic book.” – Spectrum News 1

“But we’ve seen those stories. We’ve never seen the female story. We’ve never seen the Latina story. We haven’t seen our version of it.” – L.A. Times
