THIRD EYE PICKS OF THE WEEK: ZODIAC STARFORCE #1 – When we first saw glimpses of ZODIAC STARFORCE, we knew we were going to love the heck out of this one. As children of the ’90s, we grew up surrounded by anime like SAILOR MOON and MAGIC KNIGHT RAYEARTH, so we know what makes a killer magical girl superteam, and Zodiac Starforce definitely has it!

In ZODIAC STARFORCE, an elite group of teenage girls with magical powers have sworn to protect our planet against dark creatures.. as long as they can get out of class!

These girls aren’t just combating math tests. They’re also battling monsters! But, when an evil force infects leader Emma, she must work with her team to save herself — and the world — from the evil Diana and her mean-girl minions.

This book takes the very manga concept of the magical girl superteam and puts a western comics spin on it that’s super interesting, and really awesome.

Highly recommended, make sure you scoop a copy this week!

Me at 12 years with Silver Prince. This was was taken on my dad’s hinterland farm. I didn’t know at the time, but this magnificent being was sent to the slaughter house just a few months after this pic was taken. Why? He was born with blue eyes. Back then, it was thought a horse with blue eyes was an albino (incorrect) and destined to become blind (incorrect). This fallacy made Silver Prince inferior and worthless to the breeder / farmer. A tragic example of just how easy it is for farmers to discard and dispose of those they belittle as ‘live Stock’.
Silver Prince was just one of the Billions of helpless, precious individuals we needlessly kill every week. Each and every one had a story.

Yesterday I drew b-o-u-n-c-e-r​‘s Toby. A sketch turned into a full drawing and I felt okay with sharing it!

Also, kudo’s to b-o-u-n-c-e-r for letting me post it! I totally adore her pony, he’s so perfect! :O
