Webcomic Woes 9 - Visibility by ErinPtah Webcomic Woes 9 - Visibility by ErinPtah
To be clear, if y'all know of any webcomics that have genderfluid intersex panromantic asexual major characters, I would be delighted to get recs.

(...in the meantime, I'm declaring that all those identities apply to a certain random appears-in-one-panel character in Leif & Thorn. There's a prize in it for the first reader to guess which one.)

Webcomic Woes 8 - But I'm An Engineering Person by ErinPtah  Sword x Plant by ErinPtah  Webcomic Woes 1 - Overenthusiastic promotion by ErinPtah  Serious Adult Slogans by ErinPtah 

Transcript

I know which of my characters have these identities, but it's not meaningful representation unless readers know it too. Doesn't have to be a major part of the plot. I just have to make it visible somehow.

Okay, I can slip in a reference to this character having crushes on other girls. This other character is easy -- he would use the actual word "bisexuality." That guy, brief shirtless scene, you can see the top surgery scars. This one is so mysterious, I just have to accept that I won't get to reveal what her deal is for years . . .

- Meanwhile -

This webcomic also has a genderfluid intersex panromantic asexual character, on page 82 in the background of panel 3! Representation!

I *wondered* if there was a story behind that wiki edit.

I had a hunch no one would check to see if they could get the answer from the wiki XD

The poor wiki, it deserves more love. 
I'd love to read about a genderfluid intersex panromantic asexual character though. I've seen those identities separately, but never all together.

It seems in good shape to me! There hasn't been a whole lot to add recently...

At this point I haven't come up with a narrative excuse to do a spotlight storyline on the Archmage, but I'll keep thinking on it.

Oh I meant more people visiting/reading, sorry.

It gets a fair amount! More visits overall this month than any individual comic page, for instance, and about 1/5 as much as the comic feed.

Oh wow! I didn't know you could get stats. That's super cool, I'm glad to hear I was wrong. 
Sorry for repeatedly putting my foot in my mouth, I shouldn't have assumed.
