A short note on the Geek Girl Illuminati shirt/patch - several people have asked if, despite not being or identifying as a Geek Girl, they could wear this shirt. My answer is a resounding YES. I made this shirt as what I hoped was a positive and encouraging response to the way women are sometimes viewed and treated in geek culture. I think of it as the opposite of this shirt. I’m not meaning it to be antagonistic, but I don’t mind if it is a little intimidating.
I chose the phrase “we’ve got your back” because it works on a few levels - for those Geek Girls wearing it, it’s a symbol of encouragement; a celebration of women in comics, gaming, writing, art, cosplay, etc. For those who simply love and appreciate the Geek Girls in their lives and media, “we’ve got your back” means solidarity and is, I hope, an expression of support.
There’s a lot of negativity towards women in geekdom, and there’s understandably the want to scream and yell about how awful it can be. I feel that on a weekly basis at least - for myself or someone I like - but I want to focus on the power that comes from supporting each other and working to make the industry better, bit by bit. I like to think that someone wearing this shirt would come to your table if you looked like you were in trouble, or would intervene at a bar if someone was being a creep, or would speak out online against misogyny, or would just make an effort to seek out and celebrate women’s contributions to the nerd world.
I know that’s a lot to ask from a t-shirt, but that was my thinking when I made it, and I made it inspired by the communities I’ve found both online and off for women in comics. They make me feel powerful!
Plus, MRAs will hate it and it looks pretty badass.

Happy Birthday kateordie, we love you!

It is Kate Leth’s 256th birthday on this planet, and to celebrate this, we have THREE NEW KATEORDIE ITEMS IN THE TOPATOCO STORE! Three! It’s bananas!

Speaking of bananas, we have the "NSFW Shirt", which you might have seen before on the "Adults Only" stickers.

We also have announce the existence of the “Geek Girl Illuminati” shirt and patch! Beware, geek girls are everywhere! And we will get you.

CHECK THIS STUFF OUT!!! I am SO excited about these new things, especially the patch and shirt! I will be posting about it all of the time. ALL OF IT.

Reposting because, although it is no longer my birthday, I am still very excited about having new things.

It’s almost NYCC and check out these EXCLUSIVES! Debuting for the show (and out in stores October 8th) are the Bravest Warriors #25 Annual and Fraggle Rock #1, both of which I am writing. For the con, I got to do the exclusive variant cover for BW, featuring both Catbug and his nemesis (?) Bugcat! You will be able to get all of these at the BOOM Studios booth, where I will be for most of the weekend! GET EXCITED!

DICE in Dublin, Ireland is one of the best shows I’ve ever been to. I don’t always have time to do show writeups, but I’m sitting here very sleepy on my birthday in the hotel and kind of overwhelmed with love for this con and everyone involved in it.

Everything was amazing. Our panels, especially the Comics Are For Everybody one, were really packed full of enthusiastic and wonderful people. I sold out of basically everything I brought. I got to see the Europe editions of Seeing Red. I was given birthday cards, presents, even beer from an awesome fan! I did a bunch of commissions and met a boatload of great artists. I cosplayed as Luci from WicDiv and Kieron + Jamie signed the cover for me, although we never really did get a good photo together. I got my first piece of Little Ghost fan art. I bought Halloween decorations and got to hold advance copies of Gotham Academy with Becky Cloonan. I can’t even begin to list everything that happened, but I wish I could.

On top of everything else, last night they surprised Kieron Gillen and I with a birthday cake - A Nightmare Before Christmas one with a Ronettes record on top for Kieron - and at midnight the whole bar sang when I officially turned 26. Turns out Jordie and my BFITW Chris had secretly conspired to make it happen. From across the OCEAN.

Just try to imagine how hard it was not to cry. I can’t believe this is my life, a sentence I uttered probably 60 times yesterday. I can’t believe it. I’m so happy and lucky and here’s to 26 being even better than 25, if that’s even possible.

I posted a picture of my birthday-eve outfit and the amazing @eiffelart drew me in it!

It is my birthday! Sept 29! I am 26.

Oh my god they brought @kierongillen and I a Nightmare Before Christmas / Ronettes cake aaaaaaaaaa!!! What is my life?!?
