FEATURE: Meet the fat goth heroine of cartoonist Calyn Pickens-Rich’s Dining with Dana

Dining with Dana is the super cute comic series by illustrator Calyn Pickens-Rich that follows fat goth babe Dana and her friends on the cultural fringe. Calyn uses situation humor to unpack the micro-aggressions fat women face, the ways in which society tells us that we don’t belong and that we need to change. Pickens-Rich also sells merch and accepts commissions, through Etsy, to pay for supplies to make the series. Meet Dana and the crew, below!
