To celebrate GLSEN‘s Ally Week, It Gets Better and I put our heads together to create a series of images. These comics exemplify what they described as the top traits of better allies, and in my best ally fashion I used my doodling powers to elevate that message. We hope you enjoy them, and encourage you to share them willy and/or nilly (especially nilly).

Let us know what you think!

I’ll update this post as we release the rest of the series this week, as well as with any printables we develop once the campaign is over.
