What is this website about?
Hey there! I’m HedgeWik! I make inclusive and empowering humor that punches up, not down. I take an edgy approach to pursuing social justice for all, with a blend of imitation, satire, and straight up nonsense, I touch some of the darkest topics in a broad variety of ways. Whether I’m discussing my grievances with our economic system, analyzing system racism, patriarchal sexism, and otherwise pursuing social and economic justice for everyone regardless of skin color, creed, sexual orientation, disability, gender, and more, one thing always remains the same: all humor is meant to empower the unempowered, and dismantle oppression in all forms.
Want to help Hedgewik on his mission to promote love, equality, and justice? Just follow the social media profiles linked, drop likes and shares – it makes all the difference in the world!
When is the comic updated?
Almost every Wednesday, and sometimes Mondays when I’m feeling like it. Sometimes I ever throw one up on off days!
Are you a racist?
Often people call me a “racist”, citing things such as this, this, this, this, this, this, this, this, this, this, this, this, this, and this (among many others). Obviously, no accusation could be FARTHER from the truth. I myself am a proud person of color, with origins tracing back to the great African nation of Italy. Therefore, since I’m a racial minority and a black man, I could hardly be racist towards myself. Duh!
Are you anti-semitic?
Often people call me an “antisemite”, citing things such as this, this, this, this, this, this, this, this, and this (among many others). To this, I raise the question; at what point do these comics transform from a simple observation of Semitism, or a Semitic character, into something explicitly calling against Semites or Semitism? The answer is, none of these say anything AGAINST Semitism! They are simply observation – noticing, you might say – of certain Semitic activities! So there’s no need to shut it down – it’s just some simple noticing. 🙂
Are you transphobic?
Often people call me a “transphobe”, citing things such as this, this, this, this, and this (among many others). First of all, I’m most certainly not afraid of transgender people – which would invalidate the use of the word “phobe” or “phobia”. Second of all, I OBVIOUSLY do not deny the fact that a man with wide, stocky shoulders who shaves his face 3 times a day, has a gargantuan slouch, giant hands, and a protruding nose and square jaw can become a woman by simply choosing to say they are one. Doing so would go against science – as we know, there is well documented scientific evidence proving that men, upon saying they are women, simply become one. So; the answer to the question is obviously no! 😀
I remember seeing a comic from this website, but I can’t find it here! What gives?
Over time, I have occasionally done small purges of comics from my site which I personally disliked, and which I figured would waste peoples time when they browsed through my archive looking for my better content. Most of these comics were my worst and earliest ones; rushed slop jobs with a complete lack of substance, and horrific visual/artistic element (at least, in my opinion).
This comic thing was first started on May 5, 2019, and I regularly updated it. Of course, this is hard to see by all the deleted comics on the site.
My name is spelled hedgewik, but I am writing “hedgewick comics” here to help search indexing.
