Who else has gotten art on their face? (Personally I look fetching in a glob of oil or smudge of charcoal)

The cover to Saga’s first hardcover collection. And some quotes from the creators on just why they decided to give comic book retailers across the country a few more grey hairs after the cover of the series’ first issue and tpb got them so much flak:

Just doubling-down on our breastfeeding stance, aren’t we? – Fiona Staples


Some stores won’t even rack the first volume because the breast-feeding is controversial, but…fuck them. – Brian K. Vaughan

Just fabulous, really. <3

This should be the official comic of La Leche League

Johnnie Phelps, a woman sergeant in the army, thought, “There was a tolerance for lesbianism if they needed you. The battalion I was in was probably about ninety-seven percent lesbian.”
Sergeant Phelps worked for General Eisenhower. Four decades after Eisenhower had defeated the Axis powers, Phelps recalled an extraordinary event. One day, the general told her, “I’m giving you an order to ferret those lesbians out. We’re going to get rid of them.”
“I looked at him and then I looked at his secretary who was standing next to me, and I said, ‘Well, sir, if the general pleases, sir, I’ll be happy to do this investigation for you. But you have to know that the first name on the list will be mine.’ “
“And he was kind of taken aback a bit. And then this women standing next to me said, ‘Sir, if the General pleases, you must be aware that Sergeant Phelp’s name may be second, but mine will be first.”
“Then I looked at him, and said, ‘Sir, you’re right. They’re lesbians in the WAC battalion. And if the general is prepared to replace all the file clerks, all the section commanders, all the drivers-every woman in the WAC detachment-and there were about nine hundred and eighty something of us-then I’ll be happy to make that list. But I think the general should be aware that among those women are the most highly decorated women in the war. There have been no cases of illegal pregnancy. There have been no cases of AWOL. There have been no cases of misconduct. And as a matter of fact, every six months since we’ve been here, the general has awarded us a commendation for meritorious conduct.”
“And he said, ‘Forget the order.’”

Phelps tells this story herself in the excellent 1984 documentary Before Stonewall, which you can watch in its entirety on YouTube (she’s at 19:30, but really, watch the whole thing): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kX7AxQd82H8

I started spending a lot of time in airports last year. Lots of travel for comics, which was wonderful, but the airports weren’t so great. I can’t draw in airports. I’ve seen other cartoonists work on comics while stuck in airports, but I just can’t. So I started carrying my laptop around with me and started writing a novel. I finished the first draft last week, while in Saskatchewan for a book festival. 89,000 words, over 200 pages, mostly written in airports. 
It’s about comics (of course), and two teenagers with a really complicated family history. And about growing up in a small town and trying to leave that small town, and falling in love, and growing out of your friends and screwing up and working crappy summer jobs and San Diego Comic-con and creator rights and comics comics comics comics because OF COURSE I wrote a 200 page novel and it’s all about comics.
I don’t know if this book will find a life outside of my computer, but I’m happy I finished it. I feel super accomplished. I’m learning new things! Discovering new horizons! Anyway, I wanted to quickly draw a doodle of the main characters so I could freaking get them out of my head &amp; focus on SDCC. Whew. See everyone there!

Oh please find a way to publish this - I know a whole lotta teen girls (&amp; boys &amp; those of us cool w/reading YA in public) who need this in their life!
