What if Zelda was a girl? by NeleVdM
On sale for $11 from Unamee for a limited time only.
I don’t even know what is going on in this design (don’t they mean Link? Are they just mashing up two different Zelda comments?), but I do know I hate the blatantly gendered aspects of it. “Oh yes, let’s make Link a girl and make her hip jut out and she wouldn’t know how to hold a bow…”

The best way to make sure you’ll be able to get it at your local comic shop is to PREORDER! I made a post about why preordering is important here. You can preorder anytime before March 16th - you can even print out and use this handy form to make the process super easy:
It will also be available on Comixology and you can order it directly from BOOM!’s website!
I’m seeking out a local comic book store just so I can subscribe to this. My first comic book subscription ever! Huzzah!
I wish everyone who visits our website, blog, Twitter & Facebook could see this piece in person. I just know my words, and our photos, won’t do it justice, but let’s try.
Aled Lewis handmade a 30 foot cross-stitch tapestry that tells the ENTIRE story of Star Wars. EVERY moment. Every character. EVERYTHING. I’ll let him explain:
A hand-stitched cotton thread on 30 foot of continuous length of 7 stitch per inch Klostern fabric. Stiffened with a thin batting and hemmed with a custom-made printed pixel star farbric on rear. This cross-stitch tapestry depicts the Star Wars saga (so far) from Episode 1 through Episode 6. Quotes from each movie are written in Aurebesh on the surrounding border. Chanelling the Bayeux Tapestry.
30 feet x 13 inches
It’s so crazy. And yes, quotes from the movie are represented by Aurebesh lettering as the border. The detail and scale of this one is just unreal. If you live in LA, or are going to visit, PLEASE stop by G1988 (West) and take a look.
AND if you have some dough, and want to have a piece in your home/work that makes people want to never leave or stop talking about it, here is the link to buy:
Guys! LUMBERJANES #1 is coming out April 9th! As you may recall, LUMBERJANES is a story about five badass girls who are best friends and go to camp and fight monsters in the woods! You can read more about it here, and here.But just because it’s being published, doesn’t mean it’ll stick around. The most important thing you can do to make sure that BOOM! Box can keep publishing LUMBERJANES for as long as possible is pre-order LUMBERJANES #1 at your local comic book store. Comic book retailers aren’t allowed to return any comics that they order for their store and can’t sell — because of that, they generally play it safe and order mainly what they know their customers will buy. Let them know you want LUMBERJANES and more comics like it. These comic book store sales numbers determine whether we can keep making the book! You can read more about how comic book distribution works and why pre-ordering is so important in this fantastic post by Kelly Sue DeConnick here.
Here’s what you gotta do:
1) Print this form out today.
2) Fill it out, including how many copies at $3.99 you’d like to purchase.
3) Bring it into your local comic shop on Wednesday when you go buy new comics, or if you’ve never been to your local comic shop, you can find one here. You can take it in anytime before March 16! That’s the cut-off date for pre-orders!4) Pick up your LUMBERJANES comic on April 9th and be like, “Dang, this rocks the most!”Download the PDF version here!JOIN THE REVOLUTION! KICK BUTT, TAKE NAMES! FRIENDSHIP TO THE MAX!
This might be the first comic that I pre-order, once I find a local comic book store!
