what you fail to realize is that video games shouldn’t cater to females in the first place. It’s largely known that it’s targeted towards the MALE demographic and has been for so many years, so why would they ask for something like that to be handed to them on a goddamn silver platter?
that’s like a guy walking into the women’s department of clothing at a sears and demanding that there be more clothing for men there. Separation of sections be damned.
that’s not how it fucking works

no not really
the game industry is more like walking into a regular department store and seeing that all the clothes are only men’s clothes
and when you ask the cashier where the women’s clothing section is, they wheel out a small rack of cheaply made tutus, g-strings, and high heels all in bright pink
and then when you go “wow really that’s it” you get called an uppity bitch and everybody assumes you want all the focus on you when in reality you’d just like to be considered a worthwhile demographic since you also like to wear clothes, it’s not like you want some ridiculous getup, you just want a solid shirt and pair of pants that fits you alright.
I mean hell you even sort of like men’s clothes and you have no problem wearing them. They suit you well. But it’s very obvious once you throw on a pair of men’s pants that they were not made for you.

Perfect metaphor is perfect.

I think I’ve out-done the corgi comic in terms of my most elaborate premise. I made this when I was REALLY tired. 

Bonus:

I do a lot of these. | So do other people.

Yes, while it’s taken decades for Comic-Con to put their code of conduct on the website and discuss the issue of harassment publicly, the very first year it’s possible for the general public to be wearing Google Glasses at the convention they’ve made sure to include them in their no-recording policy (and in no uncertain terms). You see, piracy is a very important issue.

i think i can accurately say that i can crush a man’s head with my thighs

Hey there, dear readers! I hope you are having a lovely day/afternoon/evening/night/millennium. I find myself in a time crunch this week, and have decided to ask what your personal preferences are regarding this blog.

Would you rather that I

a) post incomplete first impressions as early in the week as possible, and update that post to completion later, or

b) post my complete first impressions later in the week?

Stayed up half the night thinking of COOL and AWESOME things to put in my webcomic. I’m so PUMPED!

July 19th
Kate helped me start working on my application for a comics grant, after about two hours I burst into tears because of stress and have to take the afternoon to quell my anxiety.
@v@;

July 20th
Pearl is my wife and Kate is just going to have to get used to that.

July 21st
The guy at the auto place said I had “basically no oil” and that he was “really surprised I was able to drive there” and was all “wow this thing could like, explode any second” and was all “damn that woulda been bad”.

And then I had to give him all my money. ;~;

I hate owning a car.

For those interested in acquiring my Bee & Puppycat cover…

I heard back from BOOM! studios, and they’re sending me some extra copies of my variant cover (which was only available at Phoenix Comic Con)and they should arrive later this week!

I will have a limited supply so, I was thinking about setting up a Store Envy for preorders…and maybe offer little sketch cards? Would you guys be interested in those?

I had to take some photos of some This One Summer original pages so I thought I’d share them here.

A little status update on the book: the book is available in FrenchItalian, and, soon, Spanish! And you can read the New York Times review here.

Thanks again so much to everyone who has come out to our events, including the recent signing in LA. It means a lot. <3
