My former classmate Jonathan Hop is doing a Kickstarter for his graphic novel series Journey to the Middle Kingdom. The premise sounded fascinating, and as we attended grad school together, I couldn’t let him get away without asking some burning questions regarding addressing race and gender in the world of comics and graphic novels.

I usually focus on Japanese media on this blog, but I did a guest post over on Comparative Geeks today about queer American comic anthologies. Enjoy!

People assume that time is a strict progression of cause to effect. But actually from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint it’s more like a big ball of wibbly-wobbly timey-wimey… stuff. — Doctor Who
