- Remember when I went bonkers over the webcomic Pizza Witch? Well here’s another one by the creator, Sarah Graley. It’s called Rent Quest and it’s about a couple of heroes just trying to make rent.
- The Mary Sue on Doctor Who, Osgood, fandom, and wanting to be more than just a companion.
- Go look at this enormous, glorious list of webcomics with black leads. [Joamette Gil]
- Margaret Atwood wrote a great piece on the recent Canadian election, The Lord of the Rings, the Paris summit, and how the war against climate change is our battle for Middle Earth. [Gizmodo/io9]
- Okay now more things about Jessica Jones:
- The LA Times on Kilgrave, “smile,” and the show’s “innocuous and incisive cultural critique” of modern-day sexism.
- “How Jessica Jones helped me through my own rape.” [Bustle]
- Bitch on how the show takes the time to explicitly call out rape and entitlement, and how victimhood doesn’t excuse further abuse.
- The Mary Sue on the uncomfortable fandom that has sprung up around Kilgrave, and why we maybe shouldn’t be so quick to dismiss it.
