Critiquing Comics #087: Trans-Planetarium

Trans-planetariumA transgender person (identifying as a woman) attempts suicide in a bathtub. Then an angel appears! The woman’s wrists are healed and the angel shows her how her life could be better. A comic whose heart is in the right place, but could use some adjustment in its delivery. Tim and Mulele discuss Trans-planetarium, but Flip Knox, John Amberia, and Shallamar Muggott; and also look back on Mulele’s just-completed Kickstarter project.

  1. Tim and Mulele,

    Thank you for devoting an episode of your show to Trans* Planetarium #1, and, more than that, providing the creative team with some solid feedback across the board. I’m impressed you touched on every aspect of the creative process (writing, art, lettering) and had something positive and something that could be improved upon to say about each. As a group still wading our way into the world of comics, it’s invaluable knowledge for us to learn from for our future projects.

    To answer your question at the end of the show. Issue #1 is not the end of Alice’s story. Issue #2 (now available) continues her story and issue #3 (coming soon) will be the conclusion. Whether there will be more Trans* Planetarium after that, we’ll have to wait and see.

    Thank you again and keep up the in-depth critiques.
