#1124: Friends in High Places

May 13, 2016

Notes from the Manager

Related Strips: #796: Strange Bedfellows; #797: Change or Die; #1122: Losing Control

This strip ran longer than expected, and I’m tied up with my fiancée’s graduation stuff this weekend, so Monday’s strip will likely be late. (Sorry!) Nah, it'll be on time.

Although I’ve officially finished my MFA, I’m scrambling to get my assistantships finished up so I can get back on Book Three (sorry, Kickstarter and Patreon!) and a large freelance project that have been getting sidelined for too long.

“Percentage rent” is a common practice in retail, mainly with larger businesses. It means the landlord/building owners get a percentage of sales instead of a flat rate, typically 7%. Sometimes the business owners will give up a smaller percentage and pay a base rent as well; it varies.

Oh, “Kirk” here is a reader: Kirk Damman. He previously appeared as a zombie in Book Six, but this (I think?) is his first real appearance. Thanks for being a Book Three backer, Kirk!

Mae Volume One is now available… and I have a comic in it!

Friday, February 17, 2017

Heads up, completists. I have a three page story in the new Mae Volume One TPB from Dark Horse Comics. This is the same one I co-wrote (with Mae creator Gene Ha) and as a thank-you for backers of its original Kickstarter edition — and Dark Horse’s editors decided to include the story in the back matter of this new collection, along with a bunch of other short stories by other great creators.

BUT… I have a story in a Dark Horse-published book! That’s cool!

If you’re not familiar with Mae, it’s an all-ages adventure comic by Gene Ha (Top Ten and a billion other comics). Here’s the official Dark Horse synopsis:

When she was just a girl, Abbie discovered a portal to a fantasy world and has since had great adventures there: defeating horrible monsters, power-mad scientists, and evil nobles. But when she turned twenty-one it all came apart and she decided to return home. Her sister, Mae, had no idea what happened to Abbie all this time, and Abbie’s tales are too hard to believe—that is, until the monsters and other terrible creatures start to cross over to our world . . . Collects issues #1–#6.

I highly recommend it. It is a lot of fun. You can learn more about Mae Volume One on Amazon.
