#737: Payback Time

September 13, 2012

Notes from the Manager

Related Strips: #735: Closed Off

These are the unfinished pencils at the moment… I'm a little overwhelmed by school and freelance work at the moment.

I hope to ink the strip in the morning or afternoon and update the image. Until then, you get to see how my pencils have loosened up recently. You can also see how I've — very recently — started to use Illustrator to do some of the precise/tight stuff that I don't enjoy doing by hand. Drawing with a ruler is no fun. I still ink this stuff by hand, though, so the finished pages look consistent.

So yeah. See you again later today, perhaps? Or Monday.

UPDATE (9/13, 10am): Well, you guys seem happy enough with the pencils, it seems, so perhaps I'll save inking them for a week when I'm not quite so overwhelmed. Thanks for bearing with me, humoring my rough pencils, and — as always — for reading.

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.
