Today is Second Thursday, when I post comics from my archive on Patreon. This month, it’s part one of CANDY & MANDY, a comic from my sketchbook that served as the basis for SANDY & MANDY, a three-part story that began appearing in Dark Horse Presents last month.

SANDY & MANDY, the story I drew as an upcoming series for DARK HORSE PRESENTS, was designed specifically to pass The Bechdel Test, cartoonist and MacArthur Genius Grant recipient Alison Bechdel’s set of rules for determining if a story is sexist or not. To wit:
1. It has to have at least two women in it,
2. Who talk to each other,
3. About something other than a man.
Some people amend the rules to require that both women have names.
