Get those spare dollars ready, and blow into your cartridges, because you're about to venture into the world of video games, and all their ups and downs!
Insert Coin follows the life of a young gamer, Jayita, growing up with video and arcade games, playing any game she could get her hands on. Indeed, they have shaped most of her life, helping her to make friends, find a girlfriend and start a family of her own.
She soon discovers however, that not all parts of the gaming world are particularly friendly, especially on the Internet. Horrified by the ugliness she sees, Jayita decides to teach the cyber-universe an important lesson, and the value of playing nice with others.
Insert Coin is 20 pages, full colour, references a countless array of video games from the '70s, '80s, '90s and more, and even contains a playlist you can listen to while reading the comic! On top of that, a third of each print copy sold, as well as the full amount of every digital copy sold will go to Cybersmile.org (http://www.cybersmile.org/), a resource that offers support to those affected by cyberbullying.
NOTE: Some pages of this book contain references to internet harassment and cyberbullying, and may be distressing to some readers. Reader discretion is advised.
