The cover to this month’s Empire magazine. YES MOAR BB-8.

I subscribe to Jon Erik’s idea that the queerness of a character should not be a spoiler because it’s not a plot point. But I’m putting my commentary ABOVE the link, rather than below just in case; this reveal from the latest issue of Lumberjanes made us all very happy.

“Something big happened in Lumberjanes Issue #17 today. Jo, one of the central characters — a girl of color with two dads, a girl who’s a kid genius, April’s bff, a deeply loyal but also sometimes insecure friend and an expert on what it means to be a Lumberjane — talked about how she’s also a trans girl.”
