You know it’s a bad situation when thighfriend is the only one not flappin’ out
I’m going to replace my normal shill with two notes…
1) For my American readers, today Trump appointed Steve Bannon as his strategist. You can do your own fact-checking on Bannon’s reputation yourself, but both the KKK and US Nazi party praised this appointment. This is not good news for most of us. If you have the time, please give a call to your representative and/ or senator to ask them to publicly decry this appointment.
A lot of my comics deal with darker themes like war, mental illness, death, etc. This is in large part because of my own history. Whole branches of my family were exterminated during WWII, and they had to flee their country to survive and start a new life. My grandmother went insane after her family was killed in front of her, so many years ago, and yet I deal with the ramifications of that every day, my own existence is a testament to both damage and survival… I process a lot of these thoughts alone, but share the output with you in the form of comics. Until recently it never occurred to me that I would have to experience things like radical nationalism in person. Please remember that fascism is insidious, and historically always seems like it won’t happen to you or your country or loved ones. It would be really nice if we could keep it that way through actively reaching out to the people who represent our needs in government and not letting it take hold. If you need help let me know and I can try and pull up some resources on how to call or write letters, or you can look at my Tumblr or Twitter for some stuff I’ve been using myself.
2) To all readers, there’s been a definite recent dislike for Bex’s character, which is completely fine. At this point in the story I expected that. However, if I ever feel you’re commenting with racist intent, I’m going to ask you to leave. This message doesn’t apply to 99.9% of you, but for that 0.01%, I’m letting you know right now that you need to educate yourself, and until you do, I do NOT want your readership. Thank you for keeping this comic a weird but safe space for everyone.
Thanks for reading. As usual, you can discuss comic and other stuff in the comments section, just keep it RESPECTFUL above all. This isn’t a safe space for assholes and tho I haven’t had to yet, I will remove unproductive comments if necessary.
And: two more pages until end of the chapter, we’ll be done by the end of the week. You guys are going to be mad haha
editors note: I just wanted to confess that sometimes I correct your comment typos when I see them so you don’t have to feel bad. That’s all :B
