I’m ABSOLUTELY THRILLED TO ANNOUNCE that we’re having a launch party and fandom meet-up in honor of the BROOKLYN zine!! A few weeks ago, I got an e-mail out of the blue from the phenomenal Chloe (reserve) offering to throw us a party! I have never been so stoked before in my life. She and I got together, and ever since we’ve been hard at work hammering out the details for what is sure to be the fandom get-together of the year! And now we’re telling you!!
WHEN? SEPTEMBER 20, 5PM-7:30PM
WHERE? WORD BOOKSTORE @ 126 FRANKLIN ST, BROOKLYN
WHAT’S GOING ON? Artist Q&As! An information session about how to run your own fandom zine! Copies of the BROOKLYN zine for sale, as well as prints, posters, and other cool stuff! Drinks and snacks! Meet a bunch of cool fandom people and talk about how upset Steve & Bucky make you!!
ALSO, THERE’S MORE! Free all day that Saturday? Good, come hang out with us!! Meet us at 1PM at Transmitter Park for a picnic potluck: bring something to share!
THAT’S NOT EVEN ALL! After the launch, at 7:30PM, we’ll be moving to Broken Land Bar to drink our feelings!
Mark your calendars, and if you’re planning on coming, RSVP here to let us know! And tell your friends! I can’t wait to see you there!!
|Ancient Egypt was not a mixed society.|
|Ancient Egypt was PITCHED BLACK until the 7th century AD, when Indo Aryans called Arabs invaded from Central Asia.|
|For 99 percent of Egyptian history, Egypt was as BLACK as Nigeria, as BLACK as Congo, and as BLACK as Senegal.|
|King Tut was a dark skinned black man,|
|Queen Tiye was a beautiful and EXTREMELY dark skinned woman.|
|Hatshepsut was also very very very dark skinned.|
|Even during the Ptolemaic period of Kemet, the Egyptians were primarily African.|
|The fact that the most advanced civilization of human history was composed primarily of Black People is the most annoying and frustrating thing to white supremacist historians today.|
|Straight White Guys:||It's not racist. The reason why most characters are straight white guys is it's a business. They just want to do what makes the most money. No one's being racist or sexist. It's just smart business.|
|Straight White Guys:||Having a Black Captain America or Pakistani Ms. Marvel or female Thor is PANDERING. All they're trying to do is get MONEY from you. It's just a marketing ploy! This is horrible!|

You kept silent on the subject and I've been kinda hoping for some fanart and comics or I guess just your commentary on it cause that's fun to read too.
There’s really nothing to say about Ronan the Accuser. He was the most underused villain since…ever, in the MCU. Which is a shame, because as an overzealous law enforcement official, he could have been a really fun counterpoint to the band of criminals that make up the movie’s heroes. Kind of a Space Javert character, albeit more extreme.
Late late birthday drawing for Victoria! I really want to hang out with her but I can’t so I drew our gangly witch girls hanging out instead <3
Georgie is from Balderdash!
Lelek is from Witchlight

No, but somebody showed it to me while I was at my table. It looks very good!
I was at my table most of the time! Didn’t do any browsing, personally :)
Congrats to Sam Bosma for his Ignatz Award in the category of Outstanding Artist!
Post-SPX Recap (very good photo stolen from SPX tumblr >:])
SPX was infamous, humbling, and legendary this year. So much talent and energy, from the first-timers to the amazing people who’ve been tabling for years and who are my heroes.
Working in comics/illustration, in relative isolation, it’s easy to lose sight of my motivation. “Who cares? Why try?” my bitter inner-voices whisper. So it is incredibly validating to be able to show pride in my work. THANK YOU everyone who came by our table to say hello. <3 Main regret, not walking around more! My tablemates Annie and Tim were a dream. I was really nervous before our panel, but everyone was so sweet and chill my jitters melted away! Hope to see many of you again next month at Locust Moon Festival.
If you are interested in buying a print of mine, my InPrnt shop is having a week-long sale—FREE SHIPPING worldwide!! These are gallery-quality giclée art prints on 100% cotton rag archival paper, printed with archival inks.
This weekend I won the Ignatz Award for Promising New Talent. Thank you, to everyone, with my complete heart. What “promising new talent” tells me is that people are rooting for me. I’m being lifted up. And it feels really really good. I won’t let you down. Thank you, thank you.
