Read this comic about a girl falling in love with PC games

When cartoonist Yao Xiao fell in love with video games, she was a 12-year-old girl growing up in China. Group sports had become less welcoming in adolescence, but PC games "provided a new 'arena' where I could be free of my physical form," she writes. "Somewhere not to be not safe, not protected, and not kept away. Somewhere to stay who I wanted to be."

Offworld presents Xiao's comic "Memoir of a Part-Time Knight" in its entirety; it's one of 40 comics in the upcoming lady gamer comic book anthology Chainmail Bikini, If you want your own copy of Chainmail Bikini, the Kickstarter ends tomorrow, so get on that.
