There are some historical lies about slavery that are pushed pretty consistently by Right-wing sources. Of course when it comes to tackling these topics, I always have to think, "Am I giving the lie more power by spreading it, or helping to dismantle it?"
So, I haven't dealt with these particular lies in our comic before. But the DeSantis appointee spreading them was a perfect chance for me to address them.
So, that's what this week's comic is about. You can read more about this story here.
By the way, I post these scripts weekly for backers at my "Optic Blast" level. They get into my classes at no additional charge, and copies of all my scripts. ========== . I'll post the finished comic here on Thursday afternoon, so that my patrons get them early. You'll notice that in these WIM scripts, I don't use the formatting that I do for other scripts. This is because:
These scripts aren't very long, so they're not as involved.
Cori and I have worked together long enough that I don't have to be as explicit with her as with artists that I'm working with for the first or second time.
Anyway, if there are specific questions you guys have about these, please ask away!
