I love every aspect of this.

NO you guys don’t understand, the entire book is like this. They tried to cram in all sorts of representation of different races and the art is gorgeous and it’s GREAT! The picture for a spellcaster is a female human who is wearing BAGGY, NON-SEXUALIZED CLOTHING AND NO MAKEUP because she’s in a dungeon, she doesn’t have time to do her hair cmon.

New comic!

Yeah, I might have watched a movie and gotten kind of mad.

This is seriously a trope I’d love to never see again though.

the lego movie

the matrix

pacific rim

now that I’ve learned I can’t unsee it

The more I think about it, I am not so sure I want a Black Widow movie any more.

In the first few frames I was already like “The Matrix”…

1980’s - Deconstruction of the Superhero
In the wake of two off beat decades, comics began to push the limits of the medium to the extreme. Stories that touched on much weightier and darker topics such as identity, police states, and the human condition. Alan Moore brought the world Watchmen and V For Vendetta and the modern Graphic Novel was born.

I’m still here…

I’ve just been totally drawn in by this teaching gig. But I’m finishing up with that in two weeks.

In the meantime, I’ve started taking the University of Alberta’s "Understanding Video Games" on Coursera and on the 22nd of October, I’ll also be starting MIT’s "Introduction to Game Design" on edX. You can still sign up for both, if you felt like it (come on! be my classmate!)

So, from the beginning of October, it’s just me, my projects* and my studies. And I’ll be in touch much more regularly :)

*One of these projects still involves education in a big way - more information to come soon!

PS - Being a teacher has been simultaneously one of the most rewarding yet depressing, enlightening yet infuriating, invigorating yet exhausting experiences I’ve ever had. It’s also the hardest I’ve ever worked. Ever. Out of any job I’ve ever done for any company anywhere. I’ll still be writing a lot about my experiences in the South African public school system. Keep an eye open!
