Feature in The Star MY

I am featured in The Star’s Lifestyle issue today, in honour of International Women’s Day! I talk about life after the (oh god was it that long ago) Eisner nomination, my next graphic novels, and women in comics in Malaysia.

Hello, hello

Folks are putting together a new letter for 2020; in the meantime here's the Bahasa Malaysia version of the 2016 letter by Letters for Black Lives. I've tweaked it a bit for Malaysians residing in Malaysia. We must work to understand how anti-Blackness and racism exist here. 1/3

pessimism is a tool of white supremacy. they don’t want you to be imaginative about a world free from genocide, wealth hoarding, patriarchy etc. in the moments you think revolution is impossible it’s important to remember that way thinking is inherently violent and supremacist

This is a very difficult conversation to have but one that's absolutely necessary.

Gangsterism is a common social issue associated with Malaysian Indians. Ask why?

It's because the LEVEL OF POVERTY among Malaysian Indians is at terrible levels. https://twitter.com/glitchbb/status/1267345753132785664

Indians are NOT on the same boat with the Chinese in the fight against racism in Malaysia. I hate to be Ms. We-Have-It-Worse, but the Indians definitely have it worse.
