This is a really rushed comic for an anthology (with Hwei and some of my favourite friends in it! You can ORDER it here!). In hindsight it was probably not a good idea to rush this (the quality, when compared to TWIDI, is like lol) but the message is more important here.
This comic is kinda personal…essentially this is a response to my mother about the benefits and joys of being in a rat race (she asked me to be proud of being in it). Sounds like a real life horror movie. Though being someone practical, I can see why it’s a good idea to get like, an employable skill or to at least dance back and forth, in and out of the rat race to maintain some stability, but to assimilate entirely, to conform entirely, to throw away who you are so you can be acceptable… I know maybe it’s explained as ‘being real’ but what kind of a reality is this and why do we have to accept it as the only one? Why wait until the rat race becomes a rat king?
Story is pretty bleak, but why shouldn’t it if that’s the reality of things?
