Recompense is a brand new comic series written by Phil Retamoza.

The main character, 


is an awkward teen tormented by bullies constantly. 

Ben transforms into Super-heroine Seraphim Penumbra, 

a beautiful transgender alien with six wings and the powers of an empath. 

The two share a consciousness and become a new being, 

named Recompense, 

and Seraphim guides Ben through his trials and identity, 

while avenging the bullies who torture kids. 

Seraphim Penumbra is a real life transgender performance artist

Seraphim appears regularly in *Otherwise* 

a trans cabaret show 

used as a platform to educate and inspire people 

about transgender rights and equality.

Seraphim is also the author of Living Penumbra, 

Seraphim's own story of transformation 

told through a series of journal entries 

written over a fifteen year time period.
