Attention all queer witches of color! POWER & MAGIC is a comics anthology about women of color, for women of color. And they’re accepting submissions until March 15th!

Keep your eyes peeled for the POWER & MAGIC Kickstarter coming in the near future!
Last week, NASA and JPL gave us the greatest gift – these amazing vintage-inspired travel posters featuring some of the sweetest destinations in our solar system and beyond. And they’re all available for you to download and print on your own! Thanks NASA, we love you too.
So many gifts coming our way this week – this gospel version of the Golden Girls theme really put us over the edge though.
