Check out this comic by Rachael Wells. She created it for the Gender Through Comic Books class.
Heroes I have Been is one page comic I did for my Gender Through Comics Class. It depicts just a few of the female super heroes and adventure characters I have taken inspiration from and shows me , at various ages from 4 to 23, pretending to be Batgirl, Wonder Woman, Dazzler and Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton).
I’ve blogged about my New Year’s themed comic in the past, but I only printed two pages of it. Now, here it is in it’s entirety. The scans (actually photos) are not very good, so I have provided a transcript with each page. Also, I posted these in reverse order, so you can read them in the correct order if you are reading in order of most recent to oldest post. If you are interested in obtaining a hard copy when it comes back into print, email me: email@example.com
The eighth issue of shane (May 2011, reprinted in Cluttered Mind # 1, Oct. 2012) featured a story titled “Happy New Year,” about a young man working as a waiter who looks back on the past year, thinks about his prospects for the next year and wonders if a new year is something he should be celebrating.
This is one of the stories I created for Mat Johnson’s graphic novel workshop in Spring 2011 at the the University of Houston and the original pages were displayed in the exhibit, Graphic Content at the Joanna gallery.
“Happy New Year” p. 1 of 8.
