amedia: (SPQR Blues Goddess)
[personal profile] amedia
I'm very excited about the Kickstarter to turn [livejournal.com profile] meritahut's webcomic SPQR Blues into a graphic novel!

I can tell you that it's a well-researched webcomic drawn by a classicist that I've used for extra credit assignments for my Latin students. But what isn't immediately obvious is that it's drawn by a woman of color who highlights the diversity that's often overlooked in the population of ancient Rome. Her major characters include Jews, Etruscans, a black doctor who isn't a slave, and a variety of women who find ways to exercise power despite societal restrictions, from an independent restaurateur to a Macchiavellian matron.

For $10 you can get a PDF; for $25, a book; and for $35, a book with your name on the thank-you page. Please support it if you can, and please spread the word!
