Ah, the unforeseen consequences of the 2012 U.S. election cycle, as reported by Amy Klobuchar, senator since 2007. After all the ballots were counted and votes tallied, American voters were shown to have ushered in a record for female representation in the Senate: 20%. Maybe they’ll consider opening up another lavatory?

Susana Polo thought she'd get her Creative Writing degree from Oberlin, work a crap job, and fake it until she made it into comics. Instead she stumbled into a great job: founding and running this very website (she's Editor at Large now, very fancy). She's spoken at events like Geek Girl Con, New York Comic Con, and Comic Book City Con, wants to get a Batwoman tattoo and write a graphic novel, and one of her canine teeth is in backwards.
