  5. zoogenesis replied to your post “say, this comic is pretty good, how have i never heard of it before i…”

    Nimona is awesome :D (gingerhaze’s Two Dads art is the best)

    awwwwww i just looked that up i hadn’t seen that that’s the best (I see GH’s art being reblogged around all the time; never quite realized what a neat style they have until I read Nimona — I love the look of it.)

    and i have a bad feeling that the end of this comic will make me sad but that’s okay; i respect media that makes me suffer :D

All I can say is…wow. Not a good feeling. 
Officer Darren Wilson’s gofundme has more money donated than Michael Brown’s memorial fund. White privilege at it’s finest. 
I don’t usually post about stuff like this, but please share this in hopes of more people donating to Michael Brown’s family. You can find the gofundme page: here.
