New Favorite Comic: Manfeels Park

The brilliant new comic Manfeels Park, created by two women based in Scotland, pairs scenes from Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice with actual anti-feminist, mansplaining comments on the interwebs.

As Sarah Seltzer notes at Salon, in a good encapsulation of the feminist response to sexist trolls, most of the comics involve Lizzy Bennet rolling her eyes at the inane comments of the men around her. In this one, Lizzy stifles a giggle at an argument about why women shouldn’t be ordained in the Mormon church…

All Malala Everything

Let Malala Yousafzai be a reminder to all of us of strength, courage and unflinching determination to survive and succeed in a world that demands you to fail. The artists at Zen Pencils have created a beautiful and moving comic of Malala’s story, centering around her profound conviction of the right to educate girls in Pakistan.

As you may recall, Yousafzai was shot by Taliban gunmen for her advocacy work to educate Pakistani girls. Throughout her recovery, she has maintained her determination to secure her education so that she can continue to fight for the rights of girls in Pakistan.  She is a nominee for this year’s Nobel Peace Prize. This week, after six month recovery in the hospital, Malala has ...

Relaunched X-Men comic to feature an all lady superhero team

Marvel is relaunching X-Men in April, to join the 2 ½ other X-Men titles they’re currently publishing. This one will be notable, though, for featuring an all female X-Men team. The comic will star Jubilee, who’s basically the early 90s in character form (I’m the perfect age to think this is awesome). It will also feature Storm (yay!), Rogue (yay!), Kitty Pride (double yay!), Rachel Grey (sort of Jean Grey’s daughter), and Psylocke (she has one of Jean Grey’s powers. Continuity gets hilarious). That’s the thing – X-Men is a title that already has a deep bench of great female characters, so this all lady team makes a lot of sense – it’s kind of a shame this hasn’t ...

The Feministing Five: Hari Kondabolu and Janine Brito

Hari Kondabolu (pictured right) and Janine Brito (pictured left) are brave comics who aren’t afraid to speak truth to power and give a voice to the marginalized. Hari’s standup takes on white folks’ appropriation of Native American dress, the impossibility of a white Jesus, and that ever-pervasive question posed to people of color: “Where are you from?” Janine’s fodder includes: the freedom she gets in her wardrobe as a lesbian, her belief that she was the gay antichrist growing up, and not catering to straight guys. Their comedy is a punch in the face of convention and offers a refreshing departure from the straight, white, male narrative that usually relies on tired tropes and stereotypes. They’re also writers ...
