    1. Windy is also quite tactile and affectionate with Rose, talks enthusiastically about her cool lesbian aunt, and is obviously threatened by Duncan.

      I saw this pretty clearly in my reading, as well. I really identified with Windy; her sexuality is spot on with mine in terms of social interactions and self-identification (although I definitely wasn't as aware as she is when I was younger).

    1. Jon revisits these moments multiple times throughout the chapter, sometimes on the same page

    1. history and cultures of the comics medium and graphic novel genre

    2. producing graphic narratives in a digital context

      I'm so excited to create a webcomic, although I am also very apprehensive about my artistic skills and style. I don't draw or practice any art very much, so I'll definitely need some practice over the semester.
