Vehlmann and Keracoest is one of my favorite comic teams of all time. Everything they do is GOLD. It’s pretty rare that French comics get an English version. Super rare. You guys get about 0.02% of what we produce. but everything in that 0.02% is amazing. So, yes, read Beautiful Darkness. It will knock your socks off and lead you to questioning your humanity. For reals.
Reblogging because this book is currently at the top of my favorite comics of the year list so far
Andrew Scott + really important advice:
“I don’t think that people are intrinsically homophobic, because otherwise we’d have to give up. I think people are ignorant, and there’s a lot of work to do. But it’s also very important for me to say that, I wasn’t bullied, it never affected my career, my parents were great about it. I mean it was always easy for them, and when I was younger, I still had feelings of isolation and shame, and that was compounded by a law that backed up that feeling.
And so, in ridding ourselves of that archaic law, you free up that mind space for young people, so that they can focus on all that stuff they should be focusing on, and allowing them to be outward looking. When someone is outward looking, rather than inward looking, it means that they become kind and generous and thoughtful people, and that’s what makes people happier. That’s why it’s a human rights issue.” (x)
