Now the issue’s out we can actually make some noise about the variant cover for issue 4 by the all-powerful god of fashion Sultriness, KEVIN WADA.
(We didn’t, as the cover could be considered a spoiler. If you squint.)
The cut off date for issue 4 is Monday, so if you talk to your shop before then, your shop should be able to secure it for you.
The order code is: JUL148049.

Eeehehee :D

Anonymous said: Why do people characterize Laura as being a positive biracial character? Tumblr social justice staples like her "otherness" are thrown out and applauded, yet her race hasn't been a factor at all. Instead, Laura has the means to attend all of the god's concerts, as well as attend, and neglect, college. I'm all for diversity in comics, but I feel like Laura has received too much credit. *I'm not a bigot cred: wrote a paper on feminism and pop culture using Young Avengers and girl groups last year*

That’s not for me to say. The question of what a “positive” character is something that’s a larger debate, and one I suspect people will have a lot about WicDiv.

As this is a non-answer I wouldn’t really have done it, but wanted to say something - when asking something like this, which is primarily about the social background of a character, it may be worth mentioning where you’re from. I don’t want to patronise.

In this case, I’m getting the subtext that you’re not from the UK and don’t know London that well - It’s mainly from getting  the sense you’re working on the idea of “College” in the American sense as opposed to the UK A-level one, for example (i.e. in terms of the amount of financial resources required to attend). Brockley was also chosen for a bunch of reasons. We’ll get into the family background eventually, I’m sure.

But it’s a book set in the UK, and set precisely in the UK. We did these things for reasons.

To further clarify on college - a state sixth form college, as attended by Laura (and me, and I think Kieron), does not require the student to pay. It is funded by SFCA (previously by local authorities).

Other reductions in life costs that usually stop at 16 are often extended to 18 if the person is still in full time education (eg prescription costs).

Jamie says what I was dancing around not saying.

(I didn’t go to sixth form college, actually. There was a six form in our school.)

Same - but it was classed a college with its own separate building onsite. Weirdly the whole school then became a “Technology College” rather than a High School, still serving kids aged 11-18, but was a way of getting more money into certain areas of study under a government scheme. 

(And yeah - just thought it worth mentioning for any other non-Brits out there.)

But, essentially - free education is available up until the age of 18 (Laura is 17), and while outside pressures or the interests of the individual may lead them to leave school and work at 16, a wide range of teenagers from all backgrounds and family situations continue education until 18.
