Femme Magnifique was a comics project curated by Shelly Bond in between the time where she was let go by DC Comics and picked up by IDW Publishing. The book celebrated "50 iconic women who shattered glass ceilings and changed the course of history in the process" and included over 100 comics creators. The Kickstarter project had a goal of $40,000 and raised $97,447. As the campaign crossed the $75,000 goal, the book was upgraded from softcover to hardcover.

With Bond now firmly ingrained at IDW with her Black Crown imprint, it was a matter of time that Femme Magnifique would be brought to the publisher. Greg Goldstein, who previously promoted himself from President to President/Publisher, EXXXCLUSIVELY told The Outhouse, "Femme Magnifique is the perfect project for IDW to release. It's a no-risk situation as it's already been completed and I get to reap all the rewards. In fact, we should release more books that other people have already paid for. Best way to make money."

The paperback edition of Femme Magnifique is set to release September 4, 2018.
