Things to Read
A webcomic about gay and lesbian robots? Sounds good to me! O Human Star has appealing art, and characters that might as well not actually be non-human, they are so human.
Memoria writes in to let you all know that she has a webcomic called Diexemor that, as she states in the Intro, “this story has lesbians…so don’t read if you hate them.” ^_^
YNN Correspondent David M. notes that the Fantagraphics Spring Season Kickstarter added Wandering Son, Volume 7 as a reward at the $40 level. There are still some of these left.
Things to Watch
The first 8 minutes of Ghost in the Shell: Arise, Second Border is streaming on YouTube with English subtitles. Just enable the Closed Captions by clicking the CC button.
If you missed the first two waves of anime in the 80s and 90s, you may never have had a chance to see the original Bubblegum Crisis and Bubblegum Crash series. It’s old school and there is at least one arc that is very Yuri. Because it’s also way out of print, there is a Kickstarter to remaster and reprint the Bubblegum Crisis (thanks to Shannon L. for noting that only Crisis – which, admittedly is the better of the two – is being re-issued.). If you’ve come to anime after the year 2000, you might really want to consider getting in on this.
Things to Think About
It has been noted by several people that the January issue of Comic Yuri Hime has a “Hrm”-making cover. The creator of Kannagi, Takanashi Eri, drew this K-ON! lookalike cover. I’m hoping this is not a new trend.
David M. also points out this item of note: A blog post about girls in anime with Tactical skills.
Comicosity has an interesting Interview with writer and artist J.H. Williams, on Batwoman and LGBT visibility in comics.
Things to Enjoy
YNN Correspondent Sean G. sent me this link of bad-ass Sukeban Deka Covers.
I am seriously needing these earphone jack Sailor Moon henshin wands.A nd I’m just going to say this out loud – I really do not think we’ll be getting the Outers in this reboot. Not one single new item has included them.
