Yes, you read that right, comic books.  Animal rights comic books, to be more precise.

I collected comics when I was younger & still do, but to a lesser extent now.  I’m more a fan of the art & the storyline(both of which make up a comic book, obviously) now & enjoy just perusing shelves & seeing if any of my childhood art heroes are still out there slinging ink.

Just recently I came across a new series called “Liberator,” written by a Matt Miner & inked by Javier Aranda and published by Black Mask Studios.  I was initially attracted to the publisher because I am a big fan of Bad Religion & Brett Gurewitz(guitarist) is one of the people involved with the creation of this said publisher.  They put out quite a few comics including Occupy(which profits go directly back to the Occupy Movement) and Ballistic, to name a couple.

Matt Miner writes a story revolving around a couple of animal rights activists, Damon & Jeanette.  Damon is a coffee barrista by day, Animal Liberation Front hero by night, & Jeanette is a very vocal protester, shown to be fearless in the face of the police in order to do what’s right.  Both are attempting to help animals & end things like factory farms, animal testing laboratories, and fur farms.  There is even a part where Damon becomes seriously badass(not to mitigate the aforementioned badassery) & takes care of some dog abusers, netting him a companion.  I don’t want to give too much away, but I’m sold on this series & the next issue comes out next week on the 11th!  A beautiful job of inking by Javier Aranda brings it all together so well.  I really wish there were more comics out like this–if you know of any, let me know:)

Now on to the curried tofu scramble breakfast burritos!

Like most of my recipes, this is an easy one(you are just waking up & doing this, right??!).  Brown some tofu & white onions in a pan greased with coconut oil.

Once that is browned, add a small handful of drained pimientos & a cup of fresh spinach.  Mix well & let the spinach wilt in the pan.

On top of that mixture, sprinkle about a 1/4t of curry powder, 1/4t of chili powder, & just a pinch of ground cloves.  Mix that well again.

Throw that in a burrito wrap & you are on your way to a great day!  Enjoy!!
