Every Lady Scientist Who Ever Did Anything (until recently).

The trouble with reading about a given woman's history who was born before your mom is that sometimes, they were hilarious, powerful, tough, loud, et cetera et cetera all good comic making material! But then sometimes, man, the main thing about them is that they just got screwed, big time. I think when I read about Rosalind Franklin, or Mary Anning, or whoever, of just how shitty stealing someone else's ideas really is. If I opened a newspaper and saw my comic in it signed by some random dude who was getting paid for it, I'd lose my cool! Dear readers, I would have an undignified tantrum. Wouldn't you?

I just confirmed that I am going to the Emerald City ComiCon in Seattle this March. Very exciting! I drove through Seattle once, so that visit didn't count.

Hey! Do you go to Mount Allison University in Sackville, New Brunswick? I did, a few years ago. I'm going there again for a little while (through to mid February) to be part of an artist in residence program! Look it up, look around, I'm pretty excited to return for a bit.
