Politically InQueerect Old Ghosts Cellar

Politically InQueerect: Old Ghosts page 26 is up! I think this definitively answers the question of whether or not Gran makes a special point of winding up Archer. (And if he didn’t react, would she bother?)

Read it here on Tapastic, or here on Studio NDR.

Need to get caught up? The archive of all pages posted to date is here.

Fun/gross historical fact: many old houses in Europe used to have their cesspools in the basement, before the advent of modern plumbing. Gran’s house would be no exception. Maybe THAT’S why Archer doesn’t want to go down there (though it wouldn’t have been in use for over 100 years).

SDCC

In SDCC news, more write-ups of the Trans Panel are trickling in. Here’s one from Bleeding Cool.

Beyond

Beyond Valley of the Silk Sky
In very exciting(for me) Beyond news, I finished my story at last! All 16 pages of the derned thing. My big project post-Old Ghosts is to get started on a new webcomic featuring these Beyond characters, so keep an eye out for that. More news as I get more specifics.

Cheers,

Dylan

Politically InQueerect Old Ghosts 1930s

Page 23 of Politically InQueerect: Old Ghosts is up! Gran has another tale for us, and Archer has a VERY fascinating newspaper. Read it here on Tapastic, or here on Studio NDR.

Research notes for this page: turns out if you do an image search for 1930s British servants’ uniforms, you get a whole bunch of stills from Downton Abbey. It took awhile to find some references closer to the source.

Also, in the original thumbnails, I had our shifty footman sporting a gangsterrific pencil moustache. But in the course of my costume research, I learned that no self-respecting household at the time would have deigned to allow facial hair on one of the staff. So the final version of him is clean-shaven.

Gran would have been maybe 8 years old at the time of the incident, for those of you tracking chronology.

Quick reminder that SDCC is next week! The Advocate has a post about queer goings on at SDCC, including my panel Breaking Barriers: Transgender Trends in Popular Culture (Thursday, July 24, 5 p.m.-6 p.m., in Room 28DE).

I will otherwise be milling about the Northwest Press table at the Prism Comics booth (#2144 in Hall C). Hope to see you there!

Cheers,
