Finding Self-Respect (Part 1)

Yasmine made 3 parts to her comic series about self-respect on POME, and a year later we’re still moved and honored to have it on the site. It’s easy for us to be snarky or salty or silly, so this genuine, heartfelt content really warmed our internet souls.

You can’t argue with SCIENCE, so don’t even try.

 

Three More Pokemon AR Games To Take Over Your Life

Memories of Final Fantasy VII

Rachel and CC walk through memory lane and revisit some of the weirdest / best / weirdest moments of playing Final Fantasy VII for the first time. Who knew this would launch them down a long path of revisiting one of their other favorite games in comics form???

 


 

Going through so many (4 years!!! 48 months!!!!) pieces of content really drives home 2 things for us: 1) we are so so lucky to have our amazing contributors and our beautiful readers, and 2) on no we’re getting OLLLDDDDDDDDDD

Thanks as always for everything, lovely readers, you’re the best.

Pomegranate Magazine

POMEmag is the internet’s premier pastel, macabre feminist dork publication. Or at least, a very pastel, macabre feminist dork publication that is leaning into that identity pretty hard.
