Unbound Boxes Limping Gods: Disconnected Stories: Issue # 606: A Message of Monsters

Helga Ritter retreated from Gianti Dincrind’s laboratory, furiously intent on combatting the Amanojuko enemy. Unable to control this trigger, she feels sudden rage, something an Amanojuko Lady rarely experiences. She knows exactly how to cauterise this pain. (For new readers, please note, Helga Ritter’s views do not reflect my own. When fighting monsters, it is essential to understand the mind of our enemy in any world, reality, or fiction. LGBTQI+ and disability rights are human rights and a high proportion of the protagonists in Unbound Boxes belong to or are allies of these communities.) Featured song is “The Lavender Song,” (Das Lila Lied) written by Mischa Spoliansky and Kurt Schwabach in 1920.

  1. As Always you present some very visual images which to me force me to think politically and compare the Amanojuko to the rabid Republicans in the U.S.who are white and straight and seem to think anything else is an abomination worthy only of service to the Republicans. Huge Hugs Cheryl.

    1. You’re absolutely right, David. The political landscape is shifting to a frighteningly right wing agenda, in more countries than the USA, including the UK and throughout Europe. People have been reduced to commodities. If our politicians could focus on preventing poverty, instead of vilifying and degrading vulnerable minorities, then the world would be a little less broken. I would say about 95% of the protagonists in Unbound Boxes would find 2023 an inhospitable place if they were to travel backwards in time. All we can do is fight against this rhetoric and attempt to inject a little humanity back through our art and actions. Very best wishes, Cheryl.
