Our striking cover this issue was drawn by Nicole Martinez aka Calamity Cole. She chose to draw Emma Gonzalez, a student activist born of the Parkland Florida school shooting. “She inspires me a lot and I think the simplicity of a close-up portrait of her could be very powerful,” says Nicole.
“The fierceness of her stare speaks loudly to guns rights advocates; that a victim is fighting back!”
