Pres. Trump talks with VP Pence earlier Friday ahead of a national security meeting at Camp David.

In the meeting, the White House says, Pres. Trump was “briefed extensively by his national security team on a new strategy to protect America’s interests in South Asia” – including the Afghan War strategy.

Pres. Trump “is studying and considering his options and will make an announcement … at the appropriate time,” the White House added.

alright guys im gonna talk about a comic called Monstress now because its fucking amazing

right, so its basically steampunk fantasy in an alternate 1900′s Asia, about monsters and humans and gods and morality and shit like that, and if you’re not already interested, I have more:

so basically right off the bat you see a hell of a lot of diversity

it’s a story fully driven by women. its almost astonishing, there are no main characters that are men, and very few side characters. they arent condemned or anything, we just dont have many male characters. its never addressed (as far as ive read so far), so i’m guessing the authors just decided to flip the gender tables and give men the treatment women in fantasy usually get. and its kind of refreshing, honestly.

several characters are missing limbs, including the main character 

and still kicking ass

theres also a mute woman who uses sign language to communicate

(also there are no relationships established yet where i am, but the author is known for including LGBT+ in her writing, so im guessing there will be lesbians)

and for the love of god, LOOK AT THE ART

these arent even covers, they’re just panels from the comic!

and if you’re still not sold, have this panel:

its literally just ten bucks for the huge first volume, please go pick it up its so good!
