I was on a panel this weekend that continues to low-key upset me. First, another panellist described as “collaboration” a comics project where an artist was just given a bunch of prose short stories and expected to get on with it. (1/2)
Then the (male) artist said the hardest part of the book for him was drawing different sorts of women* because “IN COMICS WE ONLY HAVE TO KNOW HOW TO DRAW TWO WOMEN, MARY JANE AND AUNT MAY”

*by women he meant white women bc his book was 100% #FFFFFF

these were Big Important Literary / Cartooning People

I am

so tired

It’s the year of our lord 2018 and to my knowledge a woman has never written Iron Man, just saying
Yesterday’s Marvel panel was apparently all men. Again. Sigh.
At this point to me, the Big Two are like the drunk older relatives at the family BBQ that you’ve given up trying to stage interventions for. It’s fine. You do you, but if you’re not hiring from the ENTIRE pool of writers, you’re only ever going to be second best 🤷🏻‍♀️

#NYCC2018 is JUST AROUND THE CORNER so it’s time for my #NYCCtips thread! I live 10 blocks from Javits, I got you. First, some basics! ⬇️
1. Javits sucks, okay? It’s really far from public transport (except the 7 train at Hudson Yards), and you’ll have to stand in line for a long time to get in. And to go to the bathroom. (The bathroom lines are LEGENDARY.) Plan shoes / outfit accordingly.
Please note ref the 7 train / Hudson Yards station:

In the last #hkmc, we show Bucky without his prosthetic, bc superhero comics are super weird about disability

There are a few canon-disabled characters, but their superpower is always that they’re... able-bodied*

*unless in a wheelchair, then their superpower is THEIR BRAIN
I’m not saying disability should be the story, because struggle porn is a drag, too, but just... show disabled people being people, and living with their disability, don’t give them a superpower that obliviates that part of their character
Anyway I’ve just spent a not inconsiderable time talking to disabled vet friends (both invisible & visible disabilities) for consulting on Bad Karma (the screenplay that grew out of drunk HKMC convos) and a friend might make action figures of our disabled leads & I am excited.

Never military but I used to do a lot of ocean racing. Would always bring a bag of gummi bears because I’d inevitably get sick the first night out, and gummis taste the same coming back up as they do going down.
Also mini candy bars because inevitably someone would decide they’re too cool to sleep during the 4hrs on/4 off rotation, and then they’d crash hard, and the rest of us (usually me) would have to do their work too.
“But why not healthy foods, like nuts?”

My darlings, the bathroom facilites on an ocean racer are a poncho and a bucket. No.
