I have to admit, I’m frustrated. Sales on the book continue to drop and there doesn’t seem to be much I can do to stop it. I’ve tried everything I can.
I got a big-name voice actor to do my trailer.
I switched the book to color.
Nothing seems to be working.
It’s a critically acclaimed series, with an average of 8.9 out of 10 over 59 reviews. It’s good. I say that without a hint of arrogance. It really is a good series.
So the conclusion I’m coming to is that people really don’t want female-led books. Unless it’s Harley Quinn, Wonder Woman or Batgirl.
They really don’t want characters of color, racial diversity, or LGBT representation.
What I’m learning is that I should be drawing and writing books about dudes and the oversexed badgirls they fool around with. I can’t make a living doing what I’m doing, so why not sell out, right? That’s where the money is.
Except I really DON’T believe that. I BELIEVE in what I’m doing. I believe that there’s an audience for it.
It’s time for that audience to step up.
CALL or GO INTO your local comic shop and order the trade. The order number is APR140534. Don’t get it at Amazon, tell your comic book store there are readers. Monthlies aren’t sold on Amazon, and monthlies are how I make a living.
CALL or GO INTO your local comic shop and order the first two issues of the next volume. The order numbers are JUL140458, and AUG140691.
If you really want to see more diversity in comics, it starts with supporting the books that are already trying to make a difference. I’m not the only one. RACHEL RISING, GENIUS, CONCRETE PARK and many other great books about strong women and people of color are out there and they need your support.
Without it, we’ll have to close up shop.
I admit I’m reblogging this without reading the comic (though I’m sure I’ve read about this project before somewhere), so I can’t say if it’s good. But it looks interesting enough to spread the word.

All three of us were called out to do the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge by Stella at Batgirl To Oracle. Since we all live in different countries we figured we’d try something different and get Batgirl to do it for us. ;)
Please donate at the link, even only a few dollars. it’s for a good cause!
Anonymous asked: Youtube is not the problem, tumblr is. Tumblr is an intellectual ditch, painting you a false false image of what an intellectual community should be. You want to be perceived as a strong and smart woman, but at the first whiff of dissent you turn into a sobbing little girl. Delete this bullshit blog, forsake all ideologies and identities that youve grown so fond of and start writing or vlogging or anything but this and go fight for what you believe in!
It’s funny, because no one on tumblr claims to be an “intellectual,” yet all the people in that “community” I somehow couldn’t escape on YouTube make it seem as if they are.
Don’t tell me what I want to be perceived as. And no, no, and no.
"forsake"? really? I mean, might be just me, but this word sounds best when used by a bearded old man coming down from atop of a mountain with a set of scrolls, not some anon whining on tumblr about tumblr.
So for reasons that will later be explained in the form of a YouTube video, I won't be making a video on consent. Instead, I'll just be sharing the script here. Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you, ON CONSENT:
Hello awesome people. Quick video on consent following a conversation of sorts that I had on a show called Drunken Peasants recently. Forewarning:: I’m going to be talking about sexual violence. If that can trigger anything particularly traumatizing or emotionally difficult for you, you are now…
Wanted to draw a very much belated thank you to the 41,000+ folks following. Happy I can share what I love to do with all of you. :] Thanks for the well-wishing, the compliments, the comments and the questions.
Hope I can keep giving you all a reason to come back.
Anonymous asked: I remember the days when games were about worlds you could explore and about being good, and not about who's got representation and gender this and sexuality that. I miss those days.
Those days miss you, too. I recently found a yellowed letter under one of the floorboards, and it was addressed to you and signed by those days with a tear-stained kiss of lipstick.
Meanwhile, in the present, those of us who work in the industry and who are—amazingly—able to consider more than one idea at the same time, will continue to create good games about worlds you can explore AND occasionally talk about inclusivity.
If you are feeling compassion fatigue, I think it might be okay to sit out those discussions, at least until you get your strength back. While it will be tough not having you available for close consultation, somehow we will soldier on.
