Representation and Health 101: Moving Forward

It’s been a year. From January to December, too many things have happened that have struck our heartstrings and challenged us to see any measure of good in the world. And just like the society around them, comics have had to address their own issues. This Representation and Health 101 is going to be a

He’s

Representation and Health 101: Returning

It’s time for a new Representation and Health 101! I took a break from writing for longer than I expected, and sometimes I feel it was longer than I should have. Yet, I also recognized the intense difficulty at getting words out, at being able to express myself in a way I felt was any

Representation and Health 101: GRACE CHOI

It’s time for another headbusting edition of Representation and Health 101. The focus of today’s column is someone who came to mind after an important discussion Twitter regarding Asian representation. So, I thought of someone I’ve found to be cool and who enhances representation for nonheterosexual Asian women. So, why don’t we jump in and

Representation and Health 101: Marceline the Vampire Queen

It’s a return to the traditional format in this latest installment of Representation and Health 101! The comics world has been abuzz about diversity, for a lot of different reasons, so I wanted to touch on a character who represents this ideal and helps us cope and heal. To that effect, I’ve decided to talk
