Getting ready for the exciting relaunch of Tiny Tots which is now a mere two weeks away!! I’ve decided to give WebToons a shot since they have better integration with Patreon and more importantly they support landscape format so I don’t need to redo all my strips. Please go ahead and give it a look, and keep an eye for new strips on the February 27th!!
Trolls, dear god why did it have to be trolls.
So in case you have been living under a rock, there has been an uproar by comic book trolls who feel that politics need to stay the fuck out of “their” comics and have been attacking anyone who they felt despoiled their beloved comics. Naturally these attacks have mostly been against women, because these folks seem to think they are easier targets. So just to show some support for the latest person to suffer the wrath of these people, I drew this little piece show the girls of the Tots dealing with trolls.

The more we let things like this continue, the more it hurts the growth of comics. Comics have come so far in welcoming diversity in it’s readership (if not in it’s creators). Trolls that lashes out at creators because they feel that the creator wrecked their favorite character are nothing new, but it seems that with the internet it has gotten far worse and significantly uglier. It’s not ok to lash out and threaten other people just because you are sitting safely behind a keyboard. Most of the people doing this would not exhibit the same behavior if they were in a public place so why do it online? Comic Book fans need to step up and address this sort of behavior when they see it, and I don’t mean starting a giant flame war, they just need to let trolls know that sort of behavior is not acceptable.
