As I've mentioned, I've been completely reworking and expanding Hakata Soy's introduction to Astronaut Elementary. This week's page really shows how different the new pages are from the original version!

Secrets and Lies

I've got a story in the Secrets & Lies anthology.

It's a wordless story written by me (okay, yes, it was pretty easy to write) and drawn byPewfell creator Chuck Whelon. Other contributors include Rick Geary, Steve Bissette, Dave Roman, Box Brown, Lucy Kinsley...tons of people. You can see a preview with samples here. Thanks very much to Cat Garza for putting it all together!

back to school

I've finally started updating Astronaut Elementary again!

The latest pages act as an extended opening sequence, set at the beginning of the story.  Originally, Hakata was introduced in a simple 2-page comic, but I've gone back and expanded it to 15 pages to better establish the school environment. These new pages also have graytones to add to the overall space-mood.
