Glister by Andi Watson

I bought Glister at my favorite bookstore a couple weeks ago because I needed a switch up from the comics I was reading (no offense, Rick & Morty). I knew it would be different, it has a very different look to it than many “mainstream” comics. So I was excited for the change in my routine.

Feminerd: White Feminism

whiteI think it may be an unfortunate testament to my race that I only first heard this term a week ago. However, contrary to how it appears, white feminism isn’t about being white. I’m white, but I’m not going to get defensive, it doesn’t apply to me. I know where I stand. But we’ll address that point later. White feminism is all too familiar to all of us, even if we don’t realize it, and it makes it a lot more difficult for equality to be achieved at any level. Read More »

Feminerd: Guerrilla Girls

tkts_nyc

Fangirls! In a recent conversation with my super rad art school student best friend, we got talking about a group called the Guerrilla Girls. She had brought them to my attention, and I ended up learning a whole lot from it. Though of course there are many celebrated female artists, they are so far from equal to their male counterparts. In the mid 80s, the Guerrilla Girls realized just how unfair the art world is, and decided to band together to make that just as known to other people too.

Seconds by Bryan Lee O’Malley

Hey there, Fangirls! As a huge fan of Bryan Lee O’Malley’s work, I was ecstatic about his newest release. And even more so after I read it. The Scott Pilgrim series was the first comic series I read, and some of the first comics I had read in general. His graphic novel Lost At Sea quickly became a favorite book of mine. O’Malley’s ability to match witty humor with meaningful insight captivates me. Seconds is a masterpiece & a new essential piece of O’Malley’s incredible line up.

Fangirls! I stumbled upon a great little app the other night that kept me up for quite sometime. This game is one of those wonderfully frustrating types. One of those game that you’ll keep going back to best yourself no matter how angry it makes you. Through all the grunting, it’s a damn good time. On The Line is perfect for those games you love to hate and hate to love.

Quicksand Jack Interview

Hey Dikrats!  I was really lucky last month, to get to interview the creative team behind Quicksand Jack (the super cool comic written by the writers from Starkid Productions).  It took me waaaay too long to finish writing it up, but they’ve been really patient with me.  I can’t express how much of an honor it was to sit down for half an hour and talk to these folks.  Nick and Matt have been my heroes since high school, and I went into full Fangirl mode when they just replied to my email.  It reminded me of why I love doing this.  So without further ado, my interview with the Quicksand Jack Creative Team!
