As sad as the last couple of pages have been, I still love love love this little glimpse into Lee and Sam’s friendship, it almost feels like intruding, you can feel how much Lee worries about Sam’s (physical and emotional) health and the fact that he’s willing to share such personal issues with someone else outside of family ( I guess Frank might be the only one who actually tries to understand Sam) says how much he trusts Lee. :3
I’ve always liked Sam, but now I think he’s actually my fav character!
Thanks for these awesome pages kori 😀
I can honestly say that I love the way you have not only presented such a sensitive topic Kori but how you continue to handle it with such grace is amazing.
Others have said it, but the last pages showing what Sam is going through on a daily basis are really good. As someone who’s basicly been on Lee’s pow here, it’s hard to witness the pain, both physically and mentally, a transgender person goes through.. but you can support an be there.
“Thanks for the shirt but… I’d rather blow my nose in a tissue, you know…”
Haha Yeah…this comment made my day.
I love this story! This graphic novel reads like a movie, and is truly a slice of life, with no asides to readers or information dumps. It feels like we are a fly on the wall in their lives. The artwork is stunning and I am envious of how you can convey mood with just two colors (if I’m honest, I miss the old two colored palate). Am I the only one though who can’t help wondering what family members who aren’t aware of Sam’s situation (Amy?) would say if they stumbled across this scene, with Sam half naked? Not that I want the drama during this heart to heart moment! Hugs to Sam and Lee
There’s a good chance his immediate family knows, but no extended ones or old friends/classmates/co-workers etc. So his mum could use female pronouns when talking about him to outsiders, but still think of him as a boy (or at least use male pronouns for him in close family situations). I’m really glad he at least has Frank and Lee to confide in, and the fact that he can have this talk and be this naked in front of Lee really shows how deep their bond is.
Sam dont be a shamed of being transgendered. I may not now what its like but as long as your friends an family loves u thats all u need :3 I love this story really interesting
I’m not sure Sam’s ashamed of being transgender (transgendered isn’t a word btw ;)), but it goes way beyond needing support of your immediate family and friends. Society as a whole is extremely prejudiced against transgender and non-binary people, which can effect your day-to-day life like no tomorrow. For someone like Sam, even something as simple as going to a public bathroom can be a horrible experience. And that’s not even talking about your own body feeling so completely and utterly *wrong* all the damn time…
I tried to gues how he was feeling im sometimes bad at it XP. I hate prejudiced people. I have a friend who is gay but I still love him and I support him. I am always there for others. U taught me something I didnt know thanks 😀
