Mike Maihack’s ‘Cleopatra in Space’ is the All Ages Sci-Fi Heroine We’ve Been Waiting For [Preview]
You’re reading this on the Internet, so there’s a good chance that you’re already familiar with Mike Maihack, whose super cute, super fun Supergirl/Batgirl fan comics pretty much take over whenever he draws a new one. I’ve been a fan of those for a long time, and ever since I saw the first one, I’ve been wondering whether he was going to turn his attention to a full-length story with a similar aesthetic, and with Cleopatra In Space, it looks like that’s exactly what he’s done.
READ THE FIRST 13 PAGES HERE!

I am SO EXCITED for this book.

This is a comic about my own emotions, made to release my own emotions, and to cope with my own emotions.

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.

A new comic about how awful I am at being seductive!

New Home Is Where The Internet Is!  Tumblr’s 10-page limit is keeping me from posting the whole thing, so head on over to the webcomic to read the rest (plus a blog post with Paris photos and doodles).

I’m going to Strasbourg tomorrow!!!  I’m so excited.  We might take a day trip into Germany and the Black Forest 8-D AHHHHHH.  Back soon, love and hugs~

-Your friend Tally

Tally is not only an AMAZING comic artist but she’s living the dream! I hope my girls grow up and don’t let the constant yet abstract notion of fear dictate how they live in this world. Way to go Tally!! :D

I love this so much! As someone who’s only really started to travel in the last year, I totally get that initial terror. I’ve been pretty fortunate, and made so many friends all over the world. I went to Boston on a whim this weekend and got to spend an evening with comic people I met mostly through twitter - and everyone was wonderful. Yes, I got terrible food poisoning on the way home, but I also got to have barbecue and Manhattans with people who used to be strangers. Travel! It’s good for you.

Lumberjanes drops today, you guys! CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?
I’ve been posting a lot about this series, because I am just so excited. First off, it’s created by an amazing team of badass ladies - It’s co-written by Grace Ellis (Intern Grace of Autostraddle) and Noelle Stevenson (who you know as Gingerhaze and the creator of Nimona), was co-created by Adventure Time and Regular Show editor Shannon Watters, and is being drawn by amazing AT/RS artist Brooke Allen. Not a single symmetrical haircut between them, and I love it.
More than that, it’s a story about five best friends at summer camp fighting MONSTERS. A little bit Gravity Falls, a dash of Babysitter’s Club, some riot grrrl attitude - and so much fun. It’s all-ages! It’s awesome!
And, on a more personal level, it is just so much GIRL POWER. You open the credits page on Lumberjanes and take a scan over those names - pretty much everybody who worked on the book is a tough lady. The cover artists were chosen from the massive pool of talented women working in indie and webcomics, and they are SO GOOD.
A whole bunch of awesome ladies making a comic about awesome ladies, but for everyone. Representation matters, and it does the heart good. Plus, it’s just super funny and wonderful. Pick it up, check it out! Wear plaid and tweet it at @Lumberjanes - the Valkyries will be doing it all day.
(Oh, and lastly - each issue deals with the girls earning a scout badge, and I designed ‘em!)
