Spider Stories: An African Animation
Here’s a project that I’m definitely going to be keeping a keen eye on! Spider Stories is an African inspired action cartoon set in a fantasy world that follows the tale of Princess Zahara who is tossed into hiding after her royal family is overthrown by another kingdom. Armed with a mystical staff, the fearless princess embarks on quest to reconnect with the spirits, reunite her homeland, and reclaim the throne.
“We have to recognize that culture used to flow through storytelling, and now it flows through media. So within the continent, we want to have images that African children can grow up with that look like them and have names like them and neighborhoods that look like theirs that they can identify with. Thirty to 40 years down the line, when they’re doctors and lawyers and presidents, the positive associations they have with the characters will be real parts of their identities.” – John Agbaje

Various comparisons between the works of Jack Kirby and various artists (Giovanni Battista Gaulli, Jackson Pollock, Pablo Picasso, Hannah Hoch and Lyubov Popova. These comparison pictures and more come from the Abstract Comics blog, so check it out as well.
Jack Kirby WAS an artist goddammit, & don’t you ever forget it:)
I agree whole-heartedly.
If you don’t believe Kirby was an artist, then you don’t believe in art.

Anonymous asked: epic smack down in my global inequalities seminar today. this yt girl going on about how she doesn't get why it's a compulsory module and she hates feeling bad when she's not racist and never did anything bad to people. Then this other girl pipes up, asks her if she's on the pill, yt girl says yes, other girl: "the pill was created by force testing it on black women, some of whom died due to bad side effects, they were tested on because they were black. You benefit from that racism every day."
This is what folks are talking about when they’re telling you that you’ve benefited from racism. It means there’s been a body count.
