"One of the greatest tragedies in life is to lose your own sense of self and accept the version of you that is expected by everyone else."

Now look listen and please understand: all of you older cartoonists.

We are living in a new world of cartoonists who aren’t caught up with these thirty-year-late ideas of “edginess.” Exploding heads just don’t do the trick anymore, I’m sorry to break it to you. Hastily slapping gibberish dialogue into the mouths of brown characters doesn’t excite people nor does it challenge people in any way. Not anymore.

You’re boring. Racist, boring and not in any way “real.”

There is nothing real or unbridled or unfiltered about this nonsense. It’s extremely filtered. Filtered through the hacky independent comics of the 1980s, filtered through the rather privileged aesthetic tastes of the 1960s undergrounds, filtered through B-movies and action blockbusters. If art like this represents someone’s unbridled self, I’ll have the restrained version, thank you.

“There’s no reason why a story has to be like a house, with a door to go in, windows to look at the trees outside and a chimney to let smoke out… We can imagine a story like an elephant, like a wheat field or the flame of a match.” —Moebius

"Girls wants to tell us something important about twentysomething females of the 21st Century. And, as the elders of our society, we should always be listening to those new voices crying out."
