Comic book heroines are known for having hourglass figures with tiny waists and huge, perky boobs. Not here. An illustrator who calls herself angryartist113 on Tumblr created a comic called “Is This Healthy,” which features a plus-size heroine. It’s incredibly powerful not because she can fly or carry trucks with one arm but because she reveals the struggles curvy women face all the time:
Clothes that don’t come in her size.
Feeling squished in chairs.
Wishing her body was as moldable as clay.
Working out but still feeling critical of her body.
The illustrations are raw and emotional, as the topic is close to the artist’s heart. Check them out below and see the rest of her work on Tumblr.
