IM DYING IM DYING IM DYING
I should have found this on October 3rd…

"Sweet little kittens are transformed in a fire. Crawling from the ashes come forth grinning metallic devils with sharp claws and fire blazing in their eyes."
THEY ARE ALL OKAY, and all those things could exist in THE SAME WOMAN. Women shouldn’t be valued because we are strong, or kick-ass, but because we are people. So don’t focus on writing characters who are strong. Write characters who are people. —madlori
Modeled on this post. This quote needed a gifset that featured a more diverse group of women. Because my takeaway from Lori’s marvelous answer (seriously, go read all of it) is that representation fucking matters and that great female characters do not—and should not—fit into the same cookie cutter mold. Because actual women are not one size fits all. And the irony of having that message cross my dash repeatedly with exclusively young, white, straight, cis women who match a prescriptive definition of beauty was getting to me.
PRETTY DEADLY #1- #3
by Kelly Sue DeConnick and Emma Rios
with variant covers by Carly Storum Mayer and Katie Cook
In true fangirl flair, I’m hyping myself up for the yet unreleased Pretty Deadly by collecting all of the available covers.
Kelly you wicked woman you.
(Had to be amended because Kelly pointed out I missed the Jenny Frison cover)
