Done as a guest spot for Jenn Manley Lee's comic, Dicebox. Mary Catherine Rafferty XII, aka Mare, is a semi-regular character in the ongoing story, and she comes from an (evidently!) long line of red-headed, space-faring matriarchs.

She's a favorite character of mine, and her many tattoos each represent an ancestor. I asked Jenn if I could make up those ancestors, and then I asked her if they could rhyme.

She said yes, because she's a brave woman.
