I know it may not be important to everyone, but this is a page from this week’s The Wicked and the Divine #2. Notice anything? Well, in the bottom panel, the main character, Laura, is sitting on the floor, in front of her parents, who are an interracial couple. Laura is biracial. I saw this and immediately showed my parents, who just so everyone knows are a white woman and a black man. I was jumping up and down as I told them about this book was officially my favorite thing ever before I saw this, but now I’m with it till it ends for sure.

There are not many characters in comics who are black and white, and being pretty new to comics the only other character I knew about was Mettle, who is dead now unfortunately :(. And while I’m sure there are probably many others, who are mixed between several different races and nationalities, I will never forget how good it felt to initially see this page, and feel represented in a popular comic book that I love anyways.

Everyone should be able to feel this way. Everyone DESERVES to feel this way. Whether it’s your race, gender, nationality, sexuality, doesn’t matter. You deserve representation.

Just wanted to share this with everyone, maybe I’ll be able to calm down now :D
