Cartoonist Lucy Knisley Wants to Be a Cartoonist When She Grows Up [Girl Week]

25-year-old cartoonist Lucy Knisley was recently asked what she wants to be when she grows up by a stranger at a train station, only to be informed by the gentleman — whose son does merchandise design for Marvel — that cartooning is a man’s game, and that she should aspire to other vocations. Yes, for realsies. Knisley, whose awesome work is a constant treat in our RSS feed, incidentally had an adorable story about Doc Ock published this very week in Marvel’s “Girl Comics” anthology comic.

If it’s any comfort, Lucy, you’ll always be our King of Pies.
