In case you didn't know, the CC4F is a drive to raise money to help the victims of human trafficking. Slavery still exists in this world, and especially the sexual exploitation of women and children. I personally can think of very things that disgust more sexual slavery, so I've participated each year in this event. It's not much, but I try. I encourage you to read up on it.
I also didn't want to miss out on sharing with you this week's SpiderForest Comic of the Week: Snow By Night. This comic is pretty damn amazing in both art and writing, and takes place in an alternate 1800's North America. Snow by Night is a manitou, a spirit, and the daughter of winter on a quest to "find her heart." She encounters two scoundrel thieves, one of whom starts to fall for her, and the other who can't seem to think she's more than a weather-controlling resource to help him steal things (but we hold out hope he's got a conscience down there somewhere). There's also alchemists, maiden-eating unicorns, and a whole world to explore in the Almanac. This story is highly recommended and is on my normal reading list. Check it out!
Comics return next week, hopefully. Can't wait until Thanksgiving when I'll have a day or two to breathe.
Is he playing innocent? Or is he? BWAH HAH HAH
Comic of the Week is Chirault! A magnificent fantasy epic with ink-wash feel, this graphic novel follows Kiran, a demon who is also a demon hunter, and Teeko, a girl who got shrunk to pint size and who is also obsessed with bugs. Because bugs torment Kiran so. There are also exploding cities and plant monsters and guilds and all sorts of adventure stuff. Go check it out, it's a lot of fun!
