June 7, 2022 - This comic originally stated that the words "transvestite" and "transsexual" are today considered to be outdated and offensive. Numerous readers pointed out that this is not universally true, so the paragraph has been modified.

Thank you so much for this. Hirschfeld’s story is important to tell and you told it beautifully.

This is perhaps the most amazing comic I have seen yet on Comic Fury. Absolutely professional grade.

I don't say this lightly. You have set a high bar... do continue!

This is very impressive; it's simultaneously informative and powerful.

I'm curious to see what else you have up your sleeve.

There is no praise I could give that would seem other than vulgar in comparison, so I will simply say a deeply held "Thank You for this".
