I first embarked on my "Forget Fairytales" adventure while in college. I contributed the comics to campus publications and eventually founded both Comicality Magazine and Quail Bell Magazine, too. I've always described "Forget Fairytales" as a feminist comic, but, more recently, I realized it lacked any degree of intersectionality. That's why this summer, I began The Wise Walrus series, which touches on Black Lives Matters, the 2016 presidential election, and other timely, multidimensional issues and conundrums. Why a walrus? Well, some things are just easier for a walrus to say.
I'm also excited to announce that the website Feminist Wednesday will be running The Wise Walrus in its biweekly newsletter. Here are some samples of The Wise Walrus series. See more on Feminist Wednesday.
