unclerylon asked: Wait, was Blaine named after Bain Capital?
It’s just an Irish-y name. Amber is Irish. Her last name is O’Malley.

Still stuck in Columbus until tomorrow morning. Guess I’ll keep drawin’ comics.
I got my advance copies of the book today. It came out perfect <3
Have I even told Tumblr that I have a new book yet? I do! And Erika Moen likes it.
Life Begins at Incorporation, a collection of political cartoons and essays by Matt Bors, is my favorite book I’ve read this year. Both his comics and writings are hilarious and brutal (brutally hilarious? Is that stupid to say?), cutting through American politics with laser-like precision. I honest-to-god laughed out loud while reading this and had to stop every other page to lean over to my husband and say, “This one! Read this one!”
His book is self-published with funds raised on Kickstarter and I can think of no better way for you to spend that $20 that’s been burning a hole in your pocket than right here, directly supporting an independent cartoonist who’s made political cartoons worth reading again.
Life Begins at Incorporation!
I have this book and it gives me all the boners.
HE LOST A LOT OF WEIGHT BECAUSE HE’S DECOMPOSING, YOU JERKS
As many of you will know (because I have bitched about it endlessly) I’m on jury duty, which involves a lot of sitting around with strangers, and today I got into it with an odious dudebro about the disproportionate ratio of sexualisation in comics. The example he brought up was Batman. Batman’s strong, muscular, wealthy, intelligent… everything a woman would love, right? Well, Batman’s many and varied personal issues aside, he’s still not sexualised the way Wonder Woman is. With that one Shortpacked! comic and The Hawkeye Initiative fresh in my head and my favourite twink-based tumblr providing a handy reference, this is what I produced as a counter argument.
THIS is what it would look like if Batman was really sexualised, and even this isn’t quite right because Batman’s outfit covers his whole body. (Dudebro is also lucky I got called before I had a chance to draw his package.)
I was going to clean it up before posting it but it was a 20 minute sketch and I only narrowly avoided sitting on a child porn trial this morning, so fuck it. ENJOY.
