Zero #10 is sort of like Samuel Beckett meets Roy Andersson. It occurs to me that I am doing things in comics no-one else is doing. Not in terms of quality — there are some very, very good writers and creators out there, and I have no desire to judge myself like that — but in a sense that what I create is, at the end of the day, springing out of me, out of my experiences, and that it is entirely true to myself. I feel content.

The cover above is for Zero #7, out on Wednesday.

When characters are talking to Starling, they often talk direct to camera, when she is talking to them, she is always looking slightly off-camera. Director Jonathan Demme explained that this was done so as the audience would directly experience her POV, but not theirs, hence encouraged the audience to more readily identify with her.

Consider that you can see less than 1% of the electromagnetic spectrum and hear less than 1% of the acoustic spectrum. As you read this, you are traveling at 220 km/sec across the galaxy. 90% of the cells in your body carry their own microbial DNA and are not ‘you’. The atoms in your body are 99.9999999999999999% empty space and none of them are the ones you were born with, but they all originated in the belly of a star. Human beings have 46 chromosomes, 2 less than the common potato. The existence of the rainbow depends on the conical photoreceptors in your eyes; to animals without cones, the rainbow does not exist. So you don’t just look at a rainbow, you create it. This is pretty amazing, especially considering that all the beautiful colors you see represent less than 1% of the electromagnetic spectrum.

We are reaching the month of May, it’s scorching and the birds are on the lookout for a drop of water. It doesn’t take much for each of us to share a bowl of water and a handful grain, to provide some respite to them. 

Let’s see you fill the bowls full and fill good.

Note: Birds are generally suspicious, it may take a couple of months to start visiting regularly.

The Cost for Women Working in Comics

divalea:

DEAR MEN IN COMICS:

THE COST FOR WOMEN IN COMICS OF DOING BUSINESS IS TOO HIGH.

You need to help lower the price of women doing business in comics and in comics fandom to only the hard work. Not the hard work plus ducking threats online and off of violence, dodging groping, inappropriate advances, joking at the expense of the fat girl, the not “hot” girl, picking up and carrying around the short girl, creepshotting the cosplayer, stalking the professional. 

You know, sexism. Violence. Attacks intended to create doubt and fear.

THE COST FOR WOMEN IN COMICS OF DOING BUSINESS IS TOO DAMN HIGH.

CALL OUT OTHER GUYS. If women doing this for themselves really really worked, I wouldn’t have to be saying this. 
Start culling guys from your personal and professional circles that are bad citizens, that you have to apologize for.

CALL OUT MISOGYNY AND SEXISM. Intervene. Speak up. Vocally reject things like the “Big Cans” promotion at NYCC on your blogs, Twitter, tumblr, Facebook, right then and there when it happens.

THE COST FOR WOMEN IN COMICS OF DOING BUSINESS IS TOO DAMN HIGH. We’ve been paying and paying. I’ve paid with my health, self-esteem, and sense of safety. Other women have paid more.

THE COST FOR WOMEN IN COMICS OF DOING BUSINESS IS TOO FUCKING HIGH. 
Men, help us lower that cost so it’s the SAME AS YOURS: hard work.

(Please share the hell out of this>)
