unicorns are notorious for their hatred of posturing bro culture
(I’m debating making this girl available as a sticker and a shirt.)

Oh please let this become a shirt.

the preeminent gail simone of our time

One’s too many and a hundred ain’t enough.

Really hits the nail on the head on the whole “empowered female character” issue in comics (and media in general). Plenty of male creators like to pretend they’re being progressive by giving their characters more freedom, but all they’re really doing is providing more fodder for male power fantasy. The women are slightly more physically capable, and perhaps a bit more sexually assertive, but that doesn’t change the fact that their behavior is still curved towards what is considered acceptable and non-threatening to a masculine audience.

Here is a sketch comic I made called Ducks, in five parts.
Part One
Part Two
Part Three
Part Four
Part Five
Ducks is about part of my time working at a mining site in Fort McMurray, the events are from 2008.  It is a complicated place, it is not the same for all, and these are only my own experiences there.  It is a sketch because I want to test how I would tell these stories, and how I feel about sharing them.  A larger work gets talked about from time to time.  It is not a place I could describe in one or two stories.  Ducks is about a lot of things, and among these, it is about environmental destruction in an environment that includes humans.  Thank you for taking the time to read it.

Another stark and effective work from Kate Beaton.
