“People who looked like me were never in the stories I encountered as a child. Little wonder I was obsessed with Thundercats, when a grey dude with pointy ears and an orange woman with spots became my heroes in a decade where Bungle was pretty much the only brown person that I saw on TV. In terms of actual humans, I was always watching someone else’s story. It’s taken me a long time to see that.”
