Exciting news, if it is indeed indicative of what it appears to be. Rachel hasn’t made any followup comments, so take it as you will (but preferably with a huge grain of salt).
At this time, we’d like to remind everyone again to please be respectful of the fact that Hussie is a very busy man, that these pages will serve as a buffer as he works on the rest of the comic, and we ask that you please not be impatient with him, as the update schedule (whenever updates do resume) will very likely be far less frequent than it used to be.
In this article Elicia Sanchez points out a few things in Brian K. Vaughan’s writing of the comic SAGA, that show us how a cis male writer may see capable women indirectly as male in disguise (or how a cis male writer may want to see in a female).
