Red Squiggle, part 3 of 3



I love spell check. I love my computer. I used the Internet to talk to the wonderful women mentioned here. We met on a Facebook group for women of color in comic books. But, I chose to talk about this issue in comic strip form because as I handwrote, it was relaxing not to wonder—have I been added to the system yet? Hopefully, this issue will be solved. Until then, I tell my squiggle that he’s only reminding me just how lucky I am to have this name.
