The secret's finally out! I'm so honored to have made WHERE BLACK STARS RISE, an eldritch horror graphic novel, with @so_engery. This has been an incredible experience, something I'm so wildly proud of and excited to have made with Marie. https://t.co/ZtxdbRT6lQ

The path to liberation requires the complete dismantling of the Palestinian Authority, from its highest leaders to its lowest security thugs. This traitorous collaborationist regime represents the decaying remnants of Oslo and must be declared an enemy as such.

On May 16, Israeli airstrikes destroyed three buildings in Gaza City, killing 44 people — the worst incident of the air campaign. We found that Israel dropped 2,000-pound bombs without warning or knowing precisely what they were hitting. Our investigation: https://t.co/oe3kX5XmSk

My top rated GDC talk “Please Stop Making Me Kill Myself: On Arab Representation in Videogames” was in goddamn 2016 and it’s pretty damn obvious it meant nothing and changed nothing. So I stopped giving those talks. https://t.co/6hNTcktsZN

A recent press event for Sniper Ghost Warrior: Contracts 2 highlighted just how casual American culture is about violence towards Arab people. https://t.co/gv6hKc77uZ

And as someone who has had some terrible interactions with Ben Tadpolesnith, no part of me is surprised at his stance

“Comics will break your heart” not for lack of opportunities alone but in knowing you will never be given the same grace, money, or respect as the actual literal predators who get their stuff still put on every recommended and award winning shelf in your LCS.

No one work is worth how many voices were shuttered because of the actions of the creator. There could be a thousand people better than Ellis or Willingham but you wouldn’t know because they steer clear, they burn out, they’re harmed and need to heal, away from comics.

Being a vulnerable person in comics, be you queer, BIPOC, or a survivor, means that you never feel like your humanity is fully recognized or protected. There have been so many talents who left comics due to direct abuse and the indirect abuse of being permanently on the defense.

Comics will never successfully out predators as long as there are old guard dudes who are willing to work with/stand up for them. I’m tired of seeing so many harmful and familiar faces constantly lurking on the edges of our industry. It keeps happening.

Comics industry soft as hell. Whether you're a brown person talking about systemic issues of navigating the industry or talking about keeping sexual predators out, some well-meaning white dude will hit you with a "well, actually"

Europeans, US citizens, Canadians, Australians, and others whose governments have been long preaching to us Palestinians about int’l law and human rights, what is your government doing about the establishment of a new colony on #Beita lands?
