  1. It was SO weird to hear the “She-Ra controversy” from the perspective of a different part of the internet. I hadn’t even heard all that noise. And the animation twitterverse is on FIRE (on my side everybody’s whining about how sexless and boyish the protag is)- a banal occurrence by now: every time a lady penetrates the hallowed boy’s club of the “Nine Old Men”, the entire SPECTRUM of criticism lights up. but Noelle Stevenson (Nimona, Lumberjanes)’s been running book tour circuits on her own dime and negotiating collaborations on her own merit for -years-. She’s got this.

    Also, heh. Vinnie Van Go-Go’s. That place is not “story-free” for me either. Deck him TWICE for good measure, hero-waitress!
