I remember the plastic couch my grandmother had. Maybe that was a sign of the generation…
I met Krishna at SPX last September and I liked Uncubed, I bought the print version sight unseen, because for me it was important to support my new friends and read comics I hadn’t heard of. It’s not like I had a check list of goals, but you know, what’s the point of going to something like SPX if not buying comics you can’t normally find.
I read it, then I ended up forgetting to read it online. I’m just getting into reading it and I enjoy it. I’m not Indian (kind of West Indian but that’s wildly different) but there are all types of entry points and relatability here. I also like learning smaller things about Indian culture(s). I always want to ask people questions, but I also never want to seem rude. The question I most often want the answer to and is also possibly the rudest, is why women choose whatever coverings they decide on. I never think of it from a place of judgement, just curiosity and to get a better understanding of different people.
So comics, comics can teach in a very open fashion, let readers be introduced to experiences they never would have had and give people some information about things they’re curious about in an easier-to-understand-than-wikipedia fashion.
