Reine #24: Oasis

In a five panel comic in pastel colors, someone is on a job in a small town where they are unfamiliar. They wonder, "where are my people?" when they encounter a coffee shop. The barista is a femme with multiple piercings and the runner sighs. The barista asks what they'd like to drink and they respond, "I'm just here for the vibes."

  1. Aw I loved this. The town where I’m currently stuck in is mostly white/old conservative republicans (lots of boring men.) But there’s this one bookstore in the downtown area called fireside books that sells great content and the people there are so nice. (and super queer.)
