now's a great time to reintroduce myself:

HELLO. I'm iris jay, she/xer. i'm a nonbinary transfemme from Seattle who has been making comics and putting them online since 2005. My work generally deals with the itchy modern intersection of queer identity, sensuality and community in our postmodern digital age.

GUNDAM WITCH FROM MERCURY spoilery thoughts 

up til now Gundam's fanbase had more or less ossified. if you had the potential to be into it, you probably already were. the Gundam Build series was an attempt to capture new fans by turning gunpla into Beyblades, essentially, and i dunno, maybe it moved some model kits, but it was a tired idea that I've never heard anyone say anything good about.

clearly a radically different approach was needed to rekindle interest in Gundam. and that's what we got

GUNDAM WITCH FROM MERCURY spoilery thoughts 

it's also really interesting that the whole thrust of this episode is also kind of a metatextual commentary on the Gundam franchise as a whole. "Can a Gundam be something other than a killing machine?" isn't just a compelling question for the characters to answer, it also feels essential for Bandai to answer after the (critically acclaimed and extremely well made, granted) misery porn that was Iron Blooded Orphans

lot of good stuff going on in the latest Witch From Mercury ep but mostly i just love that we actually get to see Gund-Arm Inc's shitty green screen promotional video

"surely the fascists are portrayed through some sort of family friendly metaphor, right? like donkeys, or--"

no. it's a film set in italy. in the 40s. it's not a metaphor at all.

Show thread

it is still ultimately Child Film For Children, but it sure doesn't pull any punches with "fascism, capitalism and the church all similarly force people into thinking of themselves as disposable objects by making them feel deeply ashamed of their own imperfections". which is a hell of a lot more than any Disney adaptation will ever say

OH YEAH SPEAKING OF MOVIES: saw the new Pinocchio yesterday! not the Disney one, the Guillermo Del Toro one. it's real good. worth watching. wilds my shit out that we got two really good looking stop motion films this year, and they were both funded by fucking Netflix of all people

i don't know if i'm ever gonna be able to get over the existence of Dear Evan Hansen, to be perfectly frank

Show thread

the greatest cinema twist i've ever experienced is still watching the Dear Evan Hansen trailer with @BestGirlGrace in a theater and not realizing it was 1. a musical and 2. a *serious* movie

GOW Thor is already the hottest character in a game I’ve seen this year so I know how good it’d be. I just KNOW. Don’t MAKE me draw this for you Santa Monica Studios

one step closer to getting an Egyptian installment where we play as a tall, burly lioness woman Sekhmet and my body vibrates into a cloud of cum atoms

ok no more spoilers. There’s stuff that’s better and stuff that’s worse than GOW2018 in this game, but I do appreciate that there’s more women around in general. Women main characters, side characters, enemies, figures only referenced in lore. Even a few lesbians, which, wow, gay rights! This is an extraordinarily low bar, but the first game had one (1) alive woman in it, so this is Progress
