It's hard for me to understand that this is the end of Material Girl... and I'm sure I'm not alone in this. All of you who have read along and breathed life into Noah, cared about him, and wished the best have made this an incredible experience.

I began this project one late night with some humble sketches, which later developed into a goal: to create legit trans art. To tell an honest story about a crossdresser. And I hope to say with some confidence that I've done that.

I've had aspirations to draw comics since I picked up my first collection of Calvin and Hobbes: Attack of the Deranged Mutant Killer Snow Goons in second grade. And now I've got 84 pages to prove that I can do just that.

Thank you so much for all of your thoughts, emotions, and primarily for stopping by. I hope to see you all again when we meet again. ^_^ Until then, I hope that you will return to visit Noah, Ribbon, and the rest. Old stories, like old clothes, are happiest when revisited.


P.S. A quick shoutout to :iconthemightypegasus: . Without her honesty and support, I may never have come this far.

Also... look for more Material Girl related work in the VERY near future. The story may be over, but there's still some spinoff work that will be showing up including one very special surprise this Weekend.

Damn, this was a really really good comic. I love it a bunch! Very insightful, and thought provoking. It's my favorite! :D
Just read the entire series in one sitting. I really liked it; if it was ever published, I'd definitely buy it

I really enjoyed the story.

Read the whole thing and absolutely loved it :D

I hope there is more ^^ Very well done!

Very well done, greatly enjoyed it.... But I have to ask, who did he marry. I have hear of gender bender weddings. Men in dresses, women in tux

Marry?   If you're talking about

MG Epilogue:  Encore by HeartGear

Then no one.   It was Noah performing in a play as Portia.

But if you're asking just in general, like how he ends up:   I don't know.   I really don't.   Mars kid could make a great partner, but I could also see Noah ending up with a lady too.
There is always hope. And sorry for the mix up, I help out in weddings and it looked like a wedding gown to me.

And he could end up with a very masculine girl that wears male clothing more often...... Course that would be more social acceptable nowadays than the reversed ....... Not that I am saying that it is wrong or anything, just saying with the common views of society. Me, I don't mind.

I consider Material Girl an auto-bio comic, and as it turns out I married a huge tomboy (like you describe).   It works because we're not competing in that department:  she'd just as soon wear jeans and a t-shirt as I would skinny jeans and pumps.   

And the society thing:  we'll get there.   I'm sure of it.   But in the meantime, passing can be super useful in day to day encounters.

Enough about me though, you help out in weddings?   What do you do?   I LOVE weddings, but I could never be a coordinator.   It's a crazy stressful job, from what I've seen.  But still, WEDDINGS!! Yeah!
