Mar 5th 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.

I love how Hans is all subtle and Anna just CRASHES into him.
Does Anna even know how strong she is? I mean, she hit a wolf away with a lute. She just batted it away like it was nothing. And then she punches Hans flying off a boat. He arches. Arches.AND LET’S NOT FORGET SHE JUST ACCIDENTALLY THROWS A BUST FAR AWAY LIKE IT’S NOTHING. HOW STRONG IS THIS GIRL?
People also forget that she pulled kristoff up a cliff and pulled a tree down to hit marshmallow in the face… this girl
Anna born with superstrength and her while life her parents just told her she was clumsy and ordinary. They didn’t want to deal with another weird superpowered daughter.
Headcanon accepted! Anna has super strength and Elsa has Ice Powers. They’d make a great crime fighti- wait…haven’t we seen that before?
HEADCANON DEFINITELY ACCEPTED NOW
Strength? Ice? SIBLINGS? Guys, you’re missing a thing:
Do you wanna throw the Mjolniiiiir? Or cross the Bifrost to Midgaaard?
Brand new on comiXology today is the second collected edition of my webcomic Cupcake POW!, a satire of a “comic for girls”. This volume collects strips from the second year of the comic. Please take a look and spread the word!
