Body positivity

More on body positivity…

This is just a quick blurb, to link an article that has already said what I would like to about body positivity in comics.

If you caught my post about Faith the other day, you’ll know she’s a fat (and I mean that positively) girl getting her own comic where she is not a punchline nor an ad for acceptance-through-weight-loss.

In poking around the internet like one does, I found an article on Comic Book Resources by Casey Gilly that lists a few more body positive mainstream comics, for those who might be interested.

Here’s the article and here are some of the selections from it:

PowerUp 001 A Main
