Diversity In The Funny Pages

Hello Beautiful Thinkers,

I found this comic online that is done in a similar artistic style to Calvin and Hobbes called AJ and Magnus. I’ve never really been that into the newspaper comics but AJ and Magnus takes on the diverse angle or having AJ being raised by a same-sex couple. As someone who thinks that diversity in story telling is essential, I wish that this comic was in actual newspapers. Take inspiration from AJ and Magnus and think of a diverse character that you think needs to be represented in a positive light. Try your hand at doing a newspaper style sketch for this character. Or write a fictional world that includes a paper that would feature comics like AJ and Magnus.

Keep Dreaming Beautiful Thinkers,

The Boy In The Heart Shades
