I wasn’t gonna submit anything ‘cause I didn’t really have any ideas, but a few hours ago this minicomic kinda came to me after thinking about how Crow and Koji don’t get along that well and I imagined that maybe in a stressful situation things could get a little heated between them.
also an excuse to draw a flood of color bar barf/blood/ooze
I decided to make Crow’s tv-head a fancy flat-screen type thing since (I don’t remember the post where this was mentioned) he’s been playing videogames a lot since he broke his leg, so maybe he would have a nice screen/monitor to enjoy his games on.
why do i keep putting these characters in kinda morbid situations? last year i decapitated one of them
A GLORIOUS TAKAHASHI VOMIT-PLOSION!
you got Crow’s necklace!

-post about possible trans character-
|Tagged with: #oh dear||6 hours ago 2 notes|
I have been working on a dreamworld episode with a character who is trans but the problem causing their nightmare isn’t directly related to the fact that they’re trans. I spoke with a few transgender individuals about this and the overwhelming response was that they would really like to see a story with a trans character whose problem is something other than the fact that they’re trans! But I was also warned by everyone that I will get a lot of public shaming from cis social justice crazies who think they’re helping. So I’m still really on the fence. My biggest fear is doing damage to the community or sparking something that does damage when I’m just trying to represent a realistic representation of the population.

GENE LUEN YANG TO COMIC CREATORS: DON’T LET FEAR STOP YOU FROM WRITING DIVERSE CHARACTERS
In a speech at the National Book Festival at the Library of Congress last weekend, The Shadow Hero writer Gene Luen Yang threw down the gauntlet.
Yang challenged comics creators to overcome their fears of bring criticized for inaccurately portraying characters who are different from them — in terms of race, gender, or other identifying factors. In brief, he told writers to do some research and get it right, but first and foremost to step outside themselves.
Here’s a brief excerpt:
We’re afraid of writing characters different from ourselves because we’re afraid of getting it wrong. We’re afraid of what the Internet might say.
This fear can be a good thing if it drives us to do our homework, to be meticulous in our cultural research. But this fear crosses the line when we become so intimidated that we quietly make choices against stepping out of our own identities.
After all, our job as writers is to step out of ourselves, and to encourage our readers to do the same.

I just read it and if you are a MINE or ZE:A´S or Jewelry fan, than you know how badly all the idols in this company get treated.
It´s beyond disgusting..
Just a few examples:
What Sera said on their documentary
For the CEO (and probably the rest of the staff) they are just dolls, that have to be perfect, beautiful in every way and if they don´t make enough money they get just kicked out or recycled.
The CEO slapping Sera openly on camera
In the documentary, you can see that she flinches and closes her eyes already when he only raises his hand which means that the idols there get hit on a regular basis and just have to cope with it.
Complete starving, especially for the female idols
Before their debut, 9Muses & Jewelry members had to go on the worst diets ever: eating completely nothing! Yewon talked about this on a show before, saying that at that time even grass seemed delicious to her because she was so hungry.
The staff and CEO just touch ALL of the idols wherever and how much they want taking dance practice or cloth fitting as an excuse…Imagine having to stand in a room practically just in your underwear and old man/women stare, point at you and touch you…I don´t even wanna think about that.
Selling their idols for money
And not the normal way because all companies do that. I mean stuff like what happened to Taeheon. Of course it is not confirmed, but I think that their CEO sold Taeheon for money to fight against that other fighter so that guy´s retiring match makes him look even more glorious, winning against an idol! Why I think that?
1) First I did not know or heard any of the ZE:A members are in to MMA. Never heard him participated in any amateur fight, much more a professional fight or did he?
2) Although his opponent was retiring, this was his job & he is well experienced in MMA fights. He is well trained…how about Tae Heon?
3) Why would he go fighting around the same time as their comeback? Their concert? Doesn´t make any sense, right?
Breaking their minds and driving them into depression
Have you ever heard of the method they use in circuses for elephants? They chain them when they are young and scare them so much that, even when they grow up and are big and strong, they don´t attempt to run away or break their chains even though they easily could now.
Same method that SE uses.
In the documentary it´s revealed that ALL 9Muses members have an unhealthy amount of stress and exhaustion buried in their bodies. So much, that even the doctor was surprised and scared for them. Leehoo of ZE:A even attempted suicide and we don´t know how many more of Jewelry, ZE:A, 9Muses or VOS did…Mental illnesses are sometimes even worse then physical injuries!
Those are only a few of the things they do to them and I hate the CEO and company for that. But what could we fans do until now? Nothing.
But now is finally our chance!
Leehoo is brave enough to do something against this corrupted system and we, the fans, every person that likes K-Pop, heck, every normal thinking person on this planet should support him!!!
Well, atleast that is what I will do. Will you?
(Sorry for the long post..I got carried away because this topic is really important to me; not only as a MINE, but also as a human being!)

isn’t it weird that we pay money to see other human beings?
Are you talking about prostitution, the movies, or airplane tickets?
