hi guys! this is a comic i made for a final in my comics in literature class. we had to do a research paper on a topic we’d discussed in class and then accompany it with a comic with a relevant subject. my paper was about hyper-sexualization of women in comic books, but i decided to broaden it out here as well as personalize it and make myself the subject and discuss something i’ve been subjected to in the convention circuit and on the internet as well as thousands of other women, as well as give a cue to thought about how the comic book industry as well as the video game industry and even just media in general (all of which are male dominated) push such ridiculous pressures onto girls and women.
also, it feels kind of silly to have to add this since i hope it’s obvious, but i am very aware that there are men that don’t subscribe to this attitude, and am incredibly grateful that these issues are brought to light to people other than the ones that are subjected to it.
anyway haha i have literally been staring at this for 9 hours i don’t even know which direction is up anymore. thanks for reading!!!
As a comic book lover, more realism is sometimes welcome.
This article on Wired explains why the Empire should have creamed the Rebel Alliance at The Battle of Hoth in the beginning of The Empire Strikes Back. The conclusion is quite sad for Vader fans though.
This version of Metroplex is much better proportioned to his G1 counterpart. I remember geeking out as a schoolkid and brimming with envy at friends with this baby at the end of the primary school year when kids could bring their toys to school. This was waaaay before electronic toys and Gameboys were popular.
However, I now realise that Trypticon is infinitely cooler. Who wouldn’t want a city-sized dinosaur robot toy!

But first, perhaps a bit of explanation is in order.
Running your own WP server takes time and dedication. Once upon a time, when WP wasn’t so ubiquitous, one could get away with leaving the installation unattended. But now no longer. Because this was the second time I had to reboot the databases, reinstall scripts and do a server cleanup due to malicious code injection, I didn’t think I could do it for a third time.
