PixelatedKitty is a mature adult comic created and written by Kat Mahoney and digitally illustrated by Leonel Anciani and Annabela Scova. The creative team has been working hard to deliver a visually stunning comic with a storyline focusing on a future of science, technology, engineering and math.
“I’ve been in the technology and video game industry for over 20 years now and with all the interviews, video games, and reviews I have done, STEM-related companies seem to focus more on the kids and getting them inspired, but there is a much larger community that is already embracing STEM through imagination and creativity.” Mahoney said, “That community is full of adults ages 17 and older. These adult geeks have been embracing STEM and futuristic imagination and creativity since they were born. And they are ready for it.”
Mahoney also acknowledges that being a female in the tech and video game community can deliver a positive influence to other girls as well, including her own teen daughter who has an intense love for anime and cosplay. “I wanted Pixel to have glasses because there were very few video games and comics with a female protagonist that wore glasses. I also created Nova Genisys based on my daughter’s features. I mean, you have the female scientist on a team wearing glasses or even the heroine when she’s working, but never while she is fighting and that made both myself and my daughter upset. We were limited to our cosplay characters and it made us both feel as if female geeks with glasses couldn’t be the Heroine. I wanted to change that immediately.” she said.
Mahoney created PixelatedKitty as a techie, intelligent, witty, naughty, and yet sweet and caring young woman. But she has a vendetta. A company called ARK TECHNOLOGIES is the largest and most powerful Government-Funded Alien Communications & Cybernetics Division in the world. It controls the military, the Internet, the technology, the science and space programs, and even the power to communicate or start war with other universal life forms. ARK is the be-all and end-all in humanity.
According to the background history Pixel, whose real name is Ellexis Siato, actually works for ARK, but her reasons are far greater than a simple paycheck. Pixel's parents used to work for ARK as well. They were scientists working on an unclassified project to build a portal bridge to another universe where the Psinox (sounds: sigh-nox) lived. An explosion during a testing phase of the bridge sucked her father into a black hole and severely injured her mother who was pregnant with Pixel at the time. Pixel’s mother died during an emergency C-section and Pixel lived. This is why Pixel has an undying hatred for Ark Technologies as they aren’t even trying to recover her father or rebuild the bridge. They won’t even acknowledge the project as it would be considered an act of war on an alien race.
Pixel and her team are now set out to rebuild that bridge, recover her father, and learn about the Psinox advancements. All the while seeking revenge and disrupting other Ark Technology plans of unclassified developments.
PixelatedKitty is still in its preliminary stages of development, but the team is pushing harder to bring the comic to the forefront with a longer term goal as a video game.
