What do the above pictures have in common? They are all from one of our newly minted favorite comics of all time… Rat Queens
For Virtual ComicCon 2014 we got to “sit down” with author Kurtis Wiebe and ask some truly important questions.
OS:Should chocolate chip cookies be chewy or crispy?
Kurtis: Chewed up and in my belly.
OS: How do you respond to complaints that entertainment is becoming to “politically correct” and that under-represented persons just want to make everything about them? (Assume the person complaining isn’t trolling.)
Kurtis: Probably about time under represented people have everything made about them. Might be a nice change.
OS:What piece of entertainment do you believe that every person should experience?
Kurtis: Kissing a bearded man. Goes for both sexes, gay or straight.
OS: Would you like to talk about any awesome projects you have coming up?
Kurtis: Rat Queens and Peter Panzerfaust are on my docket full time. I do always have other projects in the background, one is a sci-fi psychological horror and the other an Asian martial arts revenge story. Love to talk about them. Can’t yet.
OS: Jet boots or a fully autonomous robotic pastry chef?
Kurtis: Robot pastry chef WITH Jet Boots. He can cook me delicious croissants and show me the world. I’ll sing the Aladdin part.
And there you have it, right from his fingers to your eyes.
If you like strong ladies, fantasy, blue birds, and representation, then you should check out Rat Queens.
If you want Rat Queens clothing, you can get that in their online shop.
This is so accurate. At school, we literally have children who will watch our facial expressions to see if them falling is as bad as they think it might be.
CORRECT CHILD INJURY PROCEDURE:
do not react. at the most, maybe wince and go “ooooh”
go over to the child to assess panic level and severity of injury
if they’re like, dying, remain calm, but they’re probably not.
look them in the eye and ask, “you okay?” they will nod. possibly all teary-eyed. then ask, “are we gonna need to cut it off?”
the child is thrown off. if they giggle, you’re in the money. if they do not, put a bandaid on and do some sympathetic patting. they are probably a little teary. let the sad little bug sit out for a minute. they will quickly get bored.
works every time
"sad little bug" is the cutest and most accurate term ive heard used to describe a child because sometimes bugs are kinda super cute sometimes bugs are really fucking annoying and sometimes bugs are downright TERRIFYING
