MOST RECENT

“‘Monstress’ is an epic fantasy comics series written by Marjorie Liu and drawn by Sana Takeda, published since 2015.

The series is set in a matriarchal world inspired by early 20th century Asia, and tells the story of Maika Halfwolf, a teenage girl who shares a mysterious psychic link with a powerful monster. The background to the story is a war between the Arcanics, magical creatures who sometimes can pass for human, and the Cumaea, an order of sorceresses who consume Arcanics to fuel their power.

Maika is an Arcanic who looks human, and who is set on learning about and avenging her dead mother. Maika's left arm has been severed and a demon (one of the Old Ones of lore), occasionally emerges from its stub. The demon taking over her body and mind is both source of great power, but also great challenge to understand and control.

According to Liu, among the series's themes are the inner strength required to withstand constant dehumanization, as well as the power of friendship among women. Race also plays a large role in the series.”

Liu recently became the first woman in the Eisner Award’s 30-year history to co-win the top writing prize with Tom King who is behind ‘Batman’, ‘Mister Miracle’ and more. Artist Takeda was also awarded both Best Cover Artist and Best Painter/Multimedia Artist.

The ‘Monstress’ series took home as well Best Publication for Teens and Best Continuing Series awards.

‘Monstress: Vol. 1 - Awakening, Vol. 2 - The Blood & Vol. 3 - Haven’

🐘 #Elephants form deep family bonds and live in tight #matriarchal #family groups of related females called a #herd. The herd is led by the oldest and often largest female in the herd, called a #matriarch. Herds consist of 8-100 individuals depending on terrain and family size. When a #calf is born, it is raised and protected by the whole matriarchal herd. Males leave the family unit between the ages of 12-15 and may lead solitary lives or live temporarily with other males.

Grateful this morning for the #matriarchal beauty of #meerkat who shows us how to live as a tribe, harmoniously!

Meerkats nearly always give birth to 4 babies- a number that is solid, balanced and enduring! If you’re challenged creatively today- consider 4 as in inspiration- 4 colors, 4 directions, 4 chords, 4 principles!:)🌸🐘🌸 #bookofbeasties Sounds True

Inktober 2018. Day 5. Chicken. I’ve never drawn Baba Yaga and I had to take the opportunity to draw at least her house with chicken legs. Legend of Baba is very old Slavic folklore and many stories include her. She is a very powerful force. I will come back to this topic. Just one last thing: there always a place in the fence around the house for one more head... just saying

Thanks @baboonhive for the help and support

Current mood: Burn it all down, baby.
This is beyond disgraceful. My “favorite” part of this is watching white men in power completely disgregard the issues at hand, and with it, women’s stories and voices and say “It’s a scary time for men and they are so worried about their sons..” It makes me see RED. Is this why the #Republicanparty is the RED party? Huh. That fits.
I bet it is scary: losing your grip on power and position. But this is what happens when toxic systems are challenged: The system has to do all it can to either cast out those who challenge it and fill those vacancies with someone who isn’t a threat, or manipulate the challengers back into the system. shame, fear, gaslighting, emotional abuse, lying, manipulation, stonewalling, ignoring, refusing to acknowledge what they find inconvenient, regardless the cost to other’s wellbeing, withholding any real accountability and distracting/projecting all their issues onto whoever challenged them etc; all ways weak people get “control” when they are frightened so they can keep “functioning.” The only way to change a toxic system: destroy it and build a new one. Scary times indeed, boys.
You should try to smile more...? Almost every woman I know has suffered abuse or assault and most of them, in silence. We have all accepted half assed (if any) accounting for bad behavior - conditioned to be “nice” and accept crumbs of respect for fear of “pushing it.” Watching Kavanaugh unravel when he was confronted with his own behavior was not surprising to most women I know. We’ve all seen it before: men losing their shit, Deflecting, bailing, blocking you, ignoring you, emotionally manipulating you, cowardly refusing to deal with the consequences of their actions and being told in a myriad of ways, when we find the courage to speak up to “get over it.” Whether we like it or not. And we are done.
Get ready world. The tides are turning. Maybe not overnight, but they will turn. Goodbye patriarchy. You had a horrible run. And it was. Not. Fun. At. All.
I was going to take a hot bath and crack open a new book, but I think instead, I might put Kill Bill or Fury Road up on the projector screen and have a re-watch.

Going away for a few days in observance of the inconceivable history of #genocide #patriarchy #apathy #hate ... that continues to play out before us on a weekend celebrating #columbusday - parades, misinformation, and even parties around the locust event of #American genocide, attack on #agrarian #matriarchal #indigenous societies, the transatlantic #slavetrade and the international religious and political justification of #exploitation of dissimilar people. This is not a political issue, it is a human issue- and we continue to act as animals until we need to justify the actions of which we are ultimately ashamed- at which time we use our cognitive opposable thumb and situate them in relative or tribal terms, or categorically speak untruths or obfuscate reality. I stand for #love, for #indigenous community, for #equality
