25-year-old cartoonist Lucy Knisley
was recently asked what she wants to be when she grows up by a stranger at a train station, only to be informed by the gentleman -- whose son does merchandise design for Marvel -- that cartooning is a man's game
, and that she should aspire to other vocations. Yes, for realsies. Knisley, whose awesome work
is a constant treat in our RSS feed, incidentally had an adorable story about Doc Ock published this very week in Marvel's "Girl Comics
" anthology comic.
If it's any comfort, Lucy, you'll always be our King of Pies.
