Sapphowoman is Pearl Diver, cub reporter for the radical tabloid The Monthly Cycle, who gained superpowers after an encounter with three witches while out in the country at Uptomashuckin Bog with her first girlfriend, Mona. She has an unrequited crush on her editor, Maria Marauder, and an unwanted admirer, Bertha. Her colleagues at The Monthly Cycle include the scatty Penny Less (who complains that her vampire girlfriend, Lucretia, only wants to have sex once a month), the closeted and not-very-radical Viola Niceposie, and the former US Army sergeant Milly Tent, whose vigilante group, the Livid Lezzies, have moved on from torching porn shops to blowing up bridal boutiques.
