Previously On Comics: Priorities

I don’t know how to do this today. I don’t know how to be anything but scared and angry anymore. I don’t know how, during a pandemic, where Black people are being forced to risk their lives in order to explain that their livers MATTER, on the three year anniversary of Grenfell, a few days off of Juneteenth, in a pride month where trans rights, rights that will no doubt hit BIPOC the hardest, are being rolled back around the world I’m supposed to write about what’s been happening in comics. But I suppose that’s what you came here for. So I’m going to make it quick, there is still so much work to be done.


Good Things

In light of Joanne’s most recent transphobic twitter tirade and supporting essay, cartoonist Molly Ostertag offered to design cover ups of Harry Potter themed tattoos in exchange for donations to Trans Women of Color Collective. 


Not So Good Things
