Love this comic and love this figure even more!
Psst! The bubble's a metaphor. This one's at the top of my TBR pile. I think we live in a very diverse world, and we need to represent that world that we live it. There are a lot of beautiful people in the world, and they need to get counted. They need to be the heroes in stories, as well. I'll
