Joshua Luna is a 37-year-old Flippino-American comic artist who has done work for Image Comics and Marvel. While his comics have mostly remained in obscurity to the eyes of the general public, Joshua has found success in making comic styled political cartoons for the “woke” crowd. This has inevitably led to mockery and Joshua screeching at the trolls making edits of his comics.

Joshua’s Comics
Unlike a lot of artcows, Joshua has some background in art. His brother Jonathan is a comic artist as well and he’s worked with Joshua on some comics, leading Joshua to have a Wikipedia page shared with his brother. While they have worked on some comic serieses, neither of them have had movies or TV shows made based on their comics aside from a planned movie likely stuck in development hell and a TV show pilot that wasn’t picked up. Unlike Joshua, his brother tends to keep a much lower profile on social media.

Joshua has however gotten talked about online not for his “professional” comics but for woke political comics that talk about how hard life is being Asian American and how bad white people are. Joshua’s comics manage to be a mix of the extreme attention to detail of a Ben Garrison comic and the whining condescending tone of a Sophie Labelle comic. Did I mention he really hates white people even if they're for the same causes he is?


The one comic that helped Joshua Luna go viral online was a comic he did critiquing how whitey is trying to make Asian PoC like him draw in a very specific manner with a message attached to it saying "Please don't repost or edit my work." His tweet about that comic managed to rack up over 7000+ retweets, and on Tumblr he got 22,719+ notes.

Joshua and the Trolls
Just like Ben Garrison and other notable artcows, Joshua is very paranoid of the trolls and critics of his work as even among his own crowd opinions are divided. Even a year ago he was slapping on his artwork not to repost it (which seems due to the fact that other people who weren't trolls kept reposting his art) but a few months ago he started getting mad at edits of his work as well, along with trolls. His pinned tweet for example is a long meltdown about how some website slandered him over some essay over the Disney movie Mulan which pivoted into how he was being attacked over his comics.

Thanks to Joshua’s newfound fame and mockery, he’s not too thrilled about edits of his comics. Anyone who edits his comics gets blocked on Twitter, but due to the exploitable nature of that comic in particular everyone’s editing it and sending it directly to him most of the time.

This has led to Joshua being angry Twitter isn’t removing trolls making edits of his comics or mocking them and how much he wants them all banned.

This is your life after cryptocurrency fails and you have to draw to keep the farms going.

Obvious jokes aside, the number one reason characters that have the express intention of being the minority representation as written by one of them is the fact that they don't have any fucking arc or characteristic that makes them sympathetic to the public. Doubled if you're writing any fucking kind of political fiction.

And then comes this guy who writes everyone as insufferable woke caricatures and wonders why in the name of the fuck he's hated.

Clooney is related to Lincoln?
According to Wikipedia, very distant cousin (Abe's mom is George's very-great-aunt)

How that's nepotism is beyond me, but I look forward to the day when this guy wills his fortune to disadvantaged children and leaves any of his own with nothing, you know, so he's not like the Hiltons.

How does someone who revels in drawing diverse people manage to make them all look sameface, with the only variety being on the caricatures of the white dudes?
This is someone who seems to be mad about white people consuming culture made by Asians in Asian countries instead of whatever shitty comics he's trying to peddle. At least that's my interpretation of this comic.

Why did he sign both panels? Isn't this one cartoon? It only makes sense as two panels of one cartoon.

The fact he co-created the abortion of a comic known as “Girls” automatically makes him a lolcow, wokeness be damned.
Never heard of it, so looked it up on Wikipedia. From the plot synopsis, it really does sound like a massive trashfire.

Found this gem:
Critical reception for Girls was mostly positive. Comic Book Resources commented that the series "exemplifies the best traditions of classic indie comics" and The A.V. Club named it as one of their "Best Comics Of 2007".[3][6] The Lunas noted that fan reaction to the series was occasionally different depending on the gender of the reader, remarking that "It's funny how some men could sympathize with one of the worst male characters, and just hate, hate the main female character, Nancy, but there'd be women who would empathize with Nancy and understand why she did the things she did, even though they were pretty vile. We did try to treat both genders equally."[4]

Now, if the men he's referring to are male feminists or feminist allies, I guess it makes sense.

Targeting woke, white hipsters like that seems an awful lot like biting the hand that feeds him; isn't that his main audience?

Nah, they're also the most likely to self-flagellate if someone says they're being problematic. Insert gif of Homer Simpson saying, 'It's true! It's true! We're so lame!'

The comics are pretty standard SJW stuff - 'Everything in my life is only understandable through a lens of my oppression'. 2nd-gen immigrants are the worst for this sort of cultural appropriation and 'you're indoctrinating me by existing while white' bullshit. Because they often feel disconnected from their heritage, they heavily police any reference to it; because they feel different from the country they grew up in, they often revel in the (often self-inflicted) miseries of not fitting in.

Some people manage to make their own ground between two cultures, celebrate both, enjoy having a foot in two places. However, people like this guy, make it an entirely negative experience where everyone is out to get him for, in this case, either being 'too asian' or 'not asian enough'. That he so often writes off both white people and asian people as monocultures shows that he's really just insecure about where he fits in and is lashing out.

I get where he's coming from. But he's decided to be a dick about everything, so I imagine some of the pushback he gets is not because he's Asian-American, but because he's an impotently angry asshole.

Just another one of those second-generation migrants with issues. They don't grow up exposed to their culture proper, sure parents make traditional dishes and celebrate festivities, but it's something infrequent so as they grow up they start to treat these things as sacred, even though they're absolutely mundane to their parents and everyone else who grew up in a home country. Second generation migrants don't even have a proper grasp on their own culture, just look at so called "Latinx" rabble who use anglicised pronunciation (Latinx doesn't roll on tongue in Spanish, and they could have went with "latine" at least), but they obsess over it and believe their ethnic background gives them some authority while their knowledge is like two sauces, five dishes and a single national holiday at best. Their entire culture is that of insecurity, hence they obsessively pick fights over things a person who grew up in their origin country wouldn't even bother grumbling about.

Now, Luna, I absolutely love how he is mad about being stereotyped but then goes for most blatant clichés like wypipo putting mayonnaise literally everywhere. His school bully obsession is also comically blatant, he's an adult male projecting his schoolyear grudges on entire race, whereas the bullies themselves grew up and moved on ages ago. My advice to people who really wanna get on his nerve, instead of making Nazi edits make edits where his school bullies reign supreme or look reasonable while his self-insert behaves like an entitled brat.
I don't think anyone posted these yet

No no that's exactly how it should be done, they enjoy being treated like rags by women and minorities.
