OFFICIALLY COMPLETED MY FIRST SET OF READINGS FOR 2014
I DO BALLET AND I RIDE HORSES AND I CUT ALL MY HAIR OFF AND I’M GETTING A NEW GUITAR AND I’VE QUIT SMOKING MOSTLY AND I FEEL LIKE 2014 IS GOING WELL AND IM PLEASED
Today I witnessed something amazing. Almost in stark contrast to yesterday, today I saw tangible impact of lady-representation in comics.
At the bookstore I work at, we have a dedicated Adventure Time section. This family came in and those kids were SO EXCITED to see their favourite characters in comics. I talked them through each OGN and series compilation, explaining what they all were and in what order they should be read, and this little girl’s entire life was changed. You could see it on her face.
The moment I mentioned Kate Leth (and that, yes, she is a girl.) this little girl’s face lit up like Christmas morning. I don’t know if it just never occurred to her that girls can work in comics but the excitement and wonder that left the store in her was a privilege to see. I ended up selling them the Fionna & Cake’s, all the OGN’s, and an AT doodle book. She left begging her dad to help her learn how to draw Marceline comics. (And he was happy to comply!)
Kate Leth has left an everlasting impression on this little girl just by existing and working in the industry. I honestly hope to someday be able to see such an impact on someone from my own work. Ladies in comics is important. The representation on the page, and behind them, is important. Having a reflection of yourself in the content you enjoy is important. I hope that little girl grows up to be a famous comic author someday.
It was a very good day.
I love stories like this!

very quick, crappy doodle of rule!63 Tulio and Miguel from Road to El Dorado, or Tullia and Miguela (which sound lame but are actually the feminine forms of the names according to my very quick google so shh) because I watched it the other day and was struck by how cool it would have been if they’d been sexswapped.
