    The first big chunk of this issue, before Bertrand's work, is “Badge of Pride” by the Japanese artist ONTA. Put simply, it's a comic about furries. It has a lot more to it however: it's about queerness, friendship, being proud of who you are, and finding a way to fit in when all of those things require a lot of work given the society around you. As a straight white dude who will always be slightly confused by the mere concept of furries, I don't know if I'm the most qualified to write about this. I will say, though, that I thought it was a cute little story, and I thought ONTA did a good job depicting a main character that was easy to empathize with, independent of his particular orientation or species.
