"A Silent Voice's first volume is not a comfortable read. It's slow and mean, full of small violences that make you wince and characters you just want to shake. That's not necessarily a bad thing though; in fact, it's often the best stories that make you uncomfortable, that make you care enough to feel pained by their characters' struggles. And this is a story all about the ugly side of childhood, so the fact that it made me grind my teeth about once every ten pages is probably a sign in its favor." - Nick Creamer

Light warning for bully (it gets worse later).


As one of my favorite mangas of the year, I would like to share with you all the opening of A Silent Voice. We'll cover the first chapter and go from there in the future.

You probably won't get this unless you've read the fifth Harry Potter book. Warning for depiction of bullying.

The Golden Binding started as a sort of illustrated radio play on youtube, and was relaunched late last year as a traditional web comic.




A small independent bookstore, The Golden Binding, is going out of business soon; the employees have just received it's last ever shipment, and are cleaning up for the night, while discussing the ramifications this will have on their lives. When five minutes to go a trio of young men walk in, full of rudeness, and snark.




Five strips *note to the mods: I have permission from the author, a friend, to go one over the limit* )

One of the best things about the internet is the sheer variety of media you find, more or less by chance. From the whimsical and amusing, to those which are so scorchingly painful you can practically FEEL the cost of writing it to the author as you read it.

This is very much the latter.

"Lighter than my Shadow" is a forthcoming autobiographical graphic novel about growing up with anorexia and coming to terms with it in adulthood by a British creator; Katie Green.

I'll say up front there are trigger warning  for issues here involving an eating disorder as well as a reference to sexual abuse in the material linked to, so proceed any further bearing that in mind.

This seems singularly apt. Though not a happy story, and indeed horrifying in more ways than I can articulate, it's a story about courage, and determination in the face of unimaginable opposition.

The piece is called Malala Yousafzai: I have the right. (Those of you familiar with the name will know that this is a story involving violence against a young woman, and bravery beyond measure, for those of you who aren't yet familiar with it, read on...)

Because this is a real person, I'm being cautious with the trigger warnings, and include them for bullying, child abuse, misogyny/sexism and violence towards women.

Not just BASED on a true story, but an ACTUAL true story )
