Comic Charm: the 'friend zone' - my thoughts →
comiccharm: So, despite my on-going optimism about the World and its inhabitants, I’ve been seeing far too much of this ‘friend zone’ entitlement BS over the past couple of weeks and I wanted to address my own personal problems with the term. And how if any of my Facebook / Tumblr / Twitter / real life… I, too, have seen people whinge on about being in this imaginary “friend...
Because, Anna.: TL;DR →
becauseanna: Writing is one of those luxuries I usually don’t give myself the time of day to do. This quite a problem because really, if I think about it. Writing is my creative outlet. I’m not an artist or a musician. And aside from baking (which I’ll concede gets a little creative with me), deep down, I’d… I hope that Anna finds her feet with this. Knowing you have it in you to create...

It’s total bullshit to say girls don’t read comics. Girls read comics when there...– Trina Robbins (via ladiesmakingcomics)
I’d hoped to start my Tumblr with something positive, and I’m glad I’m going to get the chance. I had a wonderful opportunity to see human decency triumph over idiocy today. Gail Simone, an author whom I admire greatly, suffered an attack on her person by a supposed fan of comics. Her reaction to it, and the reaction of her supporters, gives me real hope for humanity.
