Secret Iron Chef [Comic]

The real question is if this is the original, awesome version of Iron Chef or the somewhat less entertaining but still better than that UPN version, Iron Chef America.

And that about does it for this arc.

THE 47 BRONIN


I made the mistake of asking my friends for guest strips during the holiday season. So instead, I will be running a month of something I like to call The 47 Bronin.  This is my expertly researched reboot of the legend of the 47 Ronin except with lots of bros.  You'll find it's about as historically accurate as the Keanu film.

There are 18 pages of stuff so it's going to run for six weeks.  Then I'll run one/one and a half weeks of guesties since I actually have some.  And then, hopefully, it'll be back to your regularly scheduled programming.

Why the break? WE'RE HAVING A BABY!!!!!  She's due January 15, but ultimately, she'll arrive when she damn well pleases.  So I'm trying to plan ahead for once.  I figure six weeks will give me enough time to figure out how comics will work with baby in the picture.  Here's hoping.

So, here's the title page of The 47 Bronin!  When it's all done, I'll probably compile it into a PDF with a handful of extras and make it available for download/purchase/something.

You're fucking kidding me. An epicurean Illuminati?

JULIE



Wait, is this secretly Iron Chef? This sounds like Iron Chef.

KILLER QUEEN (On phone)



Urm...

I'm so excited!!!! School for Extraterrestrial Girls Volume 1: Girl on Fire is finally finished and ready for preorder!!! And if you click on that link, you can download and read the first chapter for free! If there's a limit to exclamation points, I'ma break that shit in this post!!!

Working with Jeremy on this book has been a true delight. There have been moments when I wanted to shout at Tara and moments when I just wanted to hug her as I was drawing pages. I've also learned a whole lot about what it takes to complete a long form project like this. Papercutz has been super supportive throughout the process and we couldn't have asked for a better team. I can't wait for everyone to get their hands on this book!!! I'll be sure to throw copies at everyone I see.

So now you can see what's taken me away from YP for so goddamn long. I'm taking a short break to finish up some projects that piled up during production, but I do intend to get back to some YP goodness. I probably won't be able to sustain a regular schedule since Book 2 is on the near horizon, but I plan on updating as I can.

If you would like to see a full preview of Book 1, I've posted the full colored book over at my Patreon in all its glory! I also post a weekly podcast over there with news and commentary on the art scene so if you're looking for things to occupy your brain for a few minutes, check it out!

Alright, that's it for now! I'll yell about all sorts of updates and such as they happen!

Hello YP Fam!

So clearly, I haven't been around the site much. I still answer the occasional comment that pops up, but I haven't posted anything proper in a good long while. I didn't want to sound like I'm making excuses, but I think maybe it's worth it to just let you know what's been going on.

Good stuff! But super busy!!

So me and my friend Jeremy Whitely have landed a three book deal for a property that we've been pitching for a while. And I'm in the thick of inking pages right now. I probably won't be done until end of this year, early next which is why I haven't had a chance to get back to YP in a while now.

I usually have a bajillion things going on all at once which should come as not small surprise. But I've dropped a lot of extra stuff (haven't even blogged in months) to concentrate on getting this first book done and I'm still running behind, even with 3am being a very familiar time of day for me.

I do plan on getting to YP once this first book is turned in. And hopefully, I'll be able to time manage much better for the next two volumes so I can have some breathing space.

So that's where I've been. I haven't given up on YP, I just haven't had time to do anything else but work on this first book. I'll be pimping the shit out of it when the publisher makes the official announcement to be sure. But until then, it's back to the grind for me!
