You’re right on with that last bit. People give me both shit and compliments every time I change my hair - but in the end, all that matters is I know I’m a fuckin’ babe.
And you are, too. It’s your body! You only get one! Have fun with it.
FAKE GEEK GUYS: A MESSAGE TO MEN ABOUT SEXUAL HARASSMENT
By Andy Khouri
“I think this woman is wrong about something on the Internet. Clearly my best course of action is to threaten her with rape.”
That’s crazy talk, right? So why does it happen all the time?
Honest question, dudes.
That women are harassed online is not news. That women in comics and the broader fandom cultures are harassed online is not news. That these women are routinely transmitted anonymous messages describing graphic sexual violence perpetrated upon them for transgressions as grave as not liking a thing… that is actually news to me, and it’s probably news to a lot of you guys reading this.
So what do we do about it?
This is important.
That is AWESOME! I’m so glad! :D
Sex Criminals Volume 1: ONE WEIRD TRICK goes on sale today. You can find it a your local shop or through Image Comics and it’s only $10! This is, as you probably know, one of my favourite comics. It’s got sex! It’s got crimes! It’s got surprisingly sympathetic takes on love, coming (ha) of age and sexual exploration! Plus, writer Matt Fraction and artist Chip Zdarsky are basically the nicest people I’ve ever met?
Anyway, there are now SHIRTS. Just the one. Show off your inner brimper at brimper.com. The link isn’t safe for work, but the comic is called SEX CRIMINALS and you’re already on tumblr which is like 60% Loki dongs anyway???
Today’s the day! SEX CRIMINALS: ONE WEIRD TRICK is out! AND it’s only $9.99! MADNESS.
I’ll be doing a signing at The Beguiling from 6pm-9pm tonight AND, SURPRISE, a noon-1pm signing at Silver Snail on Yonge!
So, you may have some questions. Here I am to answer them.
Chip, I already bought issues 1-5, why the fuck would I buy this?
Great question! Don’t appreciate the cussing!
Well, THIS volume has fun backup stuff, like our MASTER SEX MOVE LIST, process pages, a radio drama, Hardon Fink outtakes, and the cute doodles above! Also, its $9.99! Buy TWO.
The why the fuck did I buy the individual issues?
Again, please stop cussing.
Because you’re a true supporter of the comic arts and you don’t want shit spoiled like its Game of Thrones night on twitter. Also, our fun letters pages are NOT in the collection! Those are fun, yeah? Sure are!
Thanks, Chip, you’re a fuckin’ cutie.
THAT IS ACCEPTABLE CUSSING.
Also, yesterday SEXCRIMZ was nominated for Eisner Awards in the Best New Series and Best Continuing Series categories. AND Matt is up for Best Writer, against his wife, which means I get to sit at their table in San Diego and see how that plays out! This is all amazing and I’m overwhelmed by everyone’s support for our pee-pee hoo-hah comic. I know I make a lot of jokes here on tumblr.com, but it really means a lot. Thanks, guys.
Everything about this is great! BUY TWO.
