Can we just take a moment to appreciate Jenny Frison and how incredibly excellent her work has been over the past several years. Her covers on Revival were (at first) the only reason why i bought the comic. The fact that I’m really into the story now is a bonus, but this woman’s work continues to be phenomenal. 

I was lucky enough to meet her 2 years ago at NYCC and bought a print of my favourite Angel cover of Illyria :) 

Her Revival covers kick all kinds of ass not to mention the amazing covers she did for Angel, please check her out!

For one day in rural central Wisconsin, the dead came back to life. Now it’s up to Officer Dana Cypress to deal with the media scrutiny, religious zealots, and government quarantine that has come with them. In a town where the living have to learn to deal with those who are supposed to be dead, Officer Cypress must solve a brutal murder, and everyone, alive or undead, is a suspect.

Reasons why you should read Revival:

  • It is a creative and understated take on the zombie genre. Rather than being flesh eaters most of the “Revivers” act just like they used to. 
  • Most of them…
  • It is called a rural noir for a reason. The diverse cast of characters survive in a situation that is simultaneously claustrophobic and creepily empty.
  • Want more diversity on your comics? The main character is a badass mom who dealt with teenage pregnancy, and also a badass cop who is willing to do whatever it takes to help her family.
  • The love interest is poc. There are several poc characters.
  • … And morally ambiguous characters, mysterious creatures, lots of teeth, and a focus on interpersonal relationships. 
  • A bunch of other things that I don’t have enough bullets for.

Beautiful portraits showcase hidden queer Muslim identities

For years, Samra Habib kept relatively quiet when it came to her identity. It can be hard for LGBT Muslims to find acceptance in a community that does not hold consistently tolerant views on same-sex equality.

But Habib will stay say silent no longer. Picking up her camera, the young photographer has begun an “aesthetically engaging” and “culturally demanding” project designed to finally bring needed visibility of the queer Muslim community to the world.

"Just Me and Allah" is a photography project originally created on Tumblr, but which will be in exhibition at a handful of locations in Toronto — the Canadian Lesbian & Gay Archives, Videofag Gallery and Parliament Street Library — in conjunction with WorldPride, beginning June 20.
