So I was hoping that I’d be looking like this Alana come Comic-Con: But it turns out I’ll be closer to this Alana: So I actually won’t be there at all because I will be forbidden from traveling. The newest de Guzman-Belew will arrive in August. I feel like I’m going to throw up, like, [...]

It makes you unfathomably fierce and utterly vulnerable. It makes your heart strong enough to hold more love than you thought possible and so frail that you fear what might break it at every moment. It gives you kinship. Not just with the future, which now will be the home of the life you’d sacrifice [...]

Seasick But Still Docked

My Womanthology: Space #3 collaboration with Leigh Dragoon was in stores today. The theme of the issue is “Ship” and our ship is called the Vesta. Our protagonist is xenobotanist Shriya Singh. She’s pretty much a genius, but she has a problem… Everything about her life seems just a little bit too good. I haven’t seen the issue [...]

I suspect that people will be coming here to find out more about me because of this. I don’t have much to add to what I have already said, so I am reposting my little manifesto: My people: Deciding whether or not a woman is allowed to call herself a nerd is just more paternalistic [...]

The election and the rhetoric surrounding issues of “entitlement” have got me thinking about my upbringing. I am no longer a spiritual believer, but the Christianity I was raised with remains with me. Jesus’s teachings about our responsibility to be compassionate toward others — not just those who deserve it but most of all to [...]

Age cannot wither her, nor custom fade her infinite variety. – William Shakespeare, Antony and Cleopatra She walks in beauty, like the night Of cloudless climes and starry skies, And all that’s best of dark and bright Meet in her aspect and her eyes… – Lord Byron With your childhood flames on your midnight rug [...]

Painting the Hull

What have I done to deserve to work with such a fabulous artist as Leigh Dragoon? Not only does she rescue kittens, she also designs awesome spaceships and is making our Womanthology story “The Vesta” look breathtaking. Here’s a first look at her colors: I love Shriya’s futuristic kurta, her hair (I described it as “a [...]

Beneath the Hull

Originally published at Possible Impossibilities. You can comment here or there.

As I’ve mentioned, I am doing a story with Leigh Dragoon for Womanthology: Space. Our story, “The Vesta” will be in the third issue, out in November. The theme for that issue is “Ship,” and here is our ship, appearing on the first page’s pencils, along with our protagonist, Dr. Shriya Singh. I got to speak [...]

Origin Story

Originally published at Possible Impossibilities. You can comment here or there.

Every woman of my generation who reads comics has an “origin story” — how she got into reading comics, then making comics or editing comics or marketing comics. Whereas our male counterparts are assumed to have simply sprung fully-formed fanboys from their father’s skulls, geek girls aren’t born, it seems; they’re made. And more than likely [...]
