This is the story of a queer teenager who made a few bad decisions and has found themselves in a world very far from Queens.
Frequently Asked Questions
Does this have anything to do with the Decemberists’ album of the same name? Nope, not even a little bit. Antlers come up in it, but that’s about all they have in common.
Is the protagonist genderqueer/nonbinary? Yes; if they knew the right words for it, they’d identify as “agender butch,” but when the story starts, they’re not quite there. This story really isn’t about that, though it’ll come up on occasion. Nothing like getting dragged into a fantasy landscape to firmly assert your gender as nonbinary, am I right?
Is Mimí based on an animal of some kind? Sort of – she’s a very cartoonish hairless dog, if one was produced by one of the toy companies that advertised on early 90s Sunday morning Canal de las Estrellas programming. Most of the characters have some sort of childhood-in-Mexico influence. Juliana, for instance, is meant to be a young Maria Felix type.
Can I make fanart/email you a thing? Heck yea! That’d be awesome. The email is snakewifecomics aroba gmail punto com, hit me up. 🙂 It takes me a bit to answer sometimes.
Stan Stanley has been making comics since she was in high school – she had a different name then, but she’d really appreciate it if you called her ‘Stan’ or ‘Stanley.’ Since moving to NYC, she has been trying to start the rumor that she is ‘devilishly handsome’ but people who meet her tend to agree that she is more of a walking cartoon (which is a fine thing to be, to be fair). She’s gone through many science-related careers, from academia to PR to just outright selling dead things and curiosities, all while still making comics in her spare time. She is Mexican, and this comic is heavily influenced by the ephemera of Mexico. She is queer, married, and very happy to be surrounded by a lovely crew of weirdos in NYC. You can peek at her life on Twitter or Tumblr.
