You know what i realized listening to this is that Newt probably does that horrific English accent all the time. Like he probably answers the phone doing it or just walks into the lab in stupid accent mode because you know it pisses Hermann off.
That little “among others” at the end of Hermann’s line though. It just speaks volumes. I love that he doesn’t care if Newt calls him by his first name when they are together its just keeping face in front of strangers/new people. Hes a professional dammit.
Newt constantly putting on a horrific English accent for the express purpose of annoying Hermann.
I realized I haven’t posted anything here aside from comic updates for awhile and I felt bad about that, so here’s something I drew last night for a new mini-comic in the works.
I’ve been thinking about the idea of queer enby crystal royalty for ages- I drafted up a first stab at this design back in October (it was actually intended for my Beyond anthology comic) and I’ve been chewing on it in various forms ever since, but it was only a few days ago when I remembered how my life used to revolve around shutter shades that it all came together. Their name is Editch or Edith (I wrote down ‘Editch Northstar’ last night but I’m not sure about the last name)- an impatient crystal warrior (and also secretly royalty but they don’t want to talk about that). They use neutral ‘they’ pronouns.
The crystal gila dragon is their pet/familiar. The little crystal frogs are a very transparent reference to my favourite point-and-click game ever (Kings Quest VII). Editch keeps a few frogs in a jar tied to their pack at all times. You never know when you might need a crystal frog.
Basically they wander around and kill monsters and roll their eyes a lot. I want to draw them forever.
Sfé I love this.

Guys I don’t think you should get on that bus.
Today I witnessed something amazing. Almost in stark contrast to yesterday, today I saw tangible impact of lady-representation in comics.
At the bookstore I work at, we have a dedicated Adventure Time section. This family came in and those kids were SO EXCITED to see their favourite characters in comics. I talked them through each OGN and series compilation, explaining what they all were and in what order they should be read, and this little girl’s entire life was changed. You could see it on her face.
The moment I mentioned Kate Leth (and that, yes, she is a girl.) this little girl’s face lit up like Christmas morning. I don’t know if it just never occurred to her that girls can work in comics but the excitement and wonder that left the store in her was a privilege to see. I ended up selling them the Fionna & Cake’s, all the OGN’s, and an AT doodle book. She left begging her dad to help her learn how to draw Marceline comics. (And he was happy to comply!)
Kate Leth has left an everlasting impression on this little girl just by existing and working in the industry. I honestly hope to someday be able to see such an impact on someone from my own work. Ladies in comics is important. The representation on the page, and behind them, is important. Having a reflection of yourself in the content you enjoy is important. I hope that little girl grows up to be a famous comic author someday.
It was a very good day.
I don’t even know what to say, I think my heart exploded. This is, I think, the best response I could ever hope for.
This is so cute i’m gonna die. Representation matters.
remember the best powerpuff girls episode
mojo jojo and moko jono
considering nearly every line in this episode was a song lyric i sometimes wonder what it’s like for people who aren’t beatles fans like are they confused
BEETLE SO OBSCURE
REMEMBER WHEN THEY SAY ” I AWNT TO HOLD YOUR HAND” IN POWERPUFF GIRL PEISODES! NON BEETLE FAN NOT GET REFERENCE
Actually there are more obscure references in this episode than you’d think. Like when Julie says “some day monkey won’t play piano song, won’t play piano song” that line is what the French line in Michelle kinda sounds like if you pretend it’s English instead of French.
And when Him says “We shall be called the Silver Beat-Alls!” and Mojo goes “no, too fancy” that is a reference to the original name of the Beatles: The Silver Beetles.
Also some of the music on that episode was composed on a mellotron because that was the instrument used in Strawberry Fields Forever and a vintage one was found especially for that episode.
Basically for every really obvious Beatles reference in that episode there’s at least one fairly obscure one and holy shit I remember every single one of them I had WEBSITE on TRIPOD back in 2001 devoted to explaining all the references I was THAT NERD.
And I STILL AM I guess.
