JW Vol. 1 cover!

JW Vol. 1 cover!

Thu, 07/29/2010 - 19:02 by Ananth in response to jw vol.1 cover

This is one of the things we've been hauling ass on this week - the cover to JW Volume 1! Here are the inks - they still have to be toned/colored and then I'll be dropping some design on it Saturday or Sunday. 

The BEACH set is up in the store! Each set comes with 2 8.5 x 11" prints, our largest yet! This is a limited run, pictured below:

That's all for us! See you next week!

So VERY much looking forward to grabbing a copy when it's available...which of course you know is NOT nearly soon enough! XD LOL

I would also like to pre-order (very much).

And I was planning on saving up my money this month after blowing so much of it at SDCC, but I think I just might have to buy those prints. Can't wait for the book, too!

Very excited for you guys!

I really like that picture, it fits the whole theme of Johnny Wander and its also well done and very nice to look at.

Congrats!! How totally exciting and awesome and must be having!!! Hopefully I shall have money again very soon... especially since I really would like to have a set of the beach prints as well to hang in my craft room. Yuko's art is definitely inspirational. :D

So, a rundown of how that

Comment by Anonymous (not verified) Thu, 07/29/2010 - 21:11

So, a rundown of how that went for me:

1) *read comic* Ho, sweet, a book cover. Wonder what it looks like?
2) *noted that Joooooohn is like freakin' huge* Heh. This would make an awesome book cover. I'm certain the real book cover's awesome too Wonder if it'll have the Maw on it?
3) *read newspost* Wait, what? Where's the link?
4) *sudden realization* OMIGOSH THAT IS THE MOST AWESOME BOOK COVER EVER I MEAN SERIOUSLY WOW. I can't wait to see it colored.
5) *saddening realization that until I can find a job through my college in information systems and digital design in a Florida city whose only major draws are the fact that it's not Miami and there's a slightly not-quite-but-kinda-major airport smack in the middle of it, I won't be able to buy the book*
6) *existential crisis*
7) *pie*
8) *happy*

...ok, so maybe everything after 5 is cake*, but the rest of it is pretty much spot on.

*the cake is a (internet meme)

Excellent cover guys (I love

Dark Horse

Comment by Tabitha (not verified) Fri, 07/30/2010 - 08:22

I was at The Hairy Turantula here in dowtown Toronto on Wednesday and saw the Dark Horse Present book with your comic in it. It made me really proud of you guys. I was reading Yuko's comic Fallen since 2003 I believe and just reccently came over here to Johnny Wander. You're both fantastic and I wish you all the best for the future! :D:D

Comment by Polar Bear (not verified) Fri, 07/30/2010 - 09:20

I wish I could justify to myself buying both those prints and the tote bag. Too bad that would make me too close to broke for comfort. )=

Oh college... ); although I could USE the tote bag for college....

Maybe two of them. I can give one to someone. Maybe by brother and SIL; they're having a baby next month (!!!!! NEXT. MONTH.) and will probably need laughs by the time it rolls out.


Comment by Anonymous (not verified) Sat, 07/31/2010 - 13:26

I feel so late to the party, but it's kinda mind blowing when you realize you're reading a comic drawn by the same person who made the webcomic you enjoyed back before you even knew your little brother. TRIPPY.
Anyway! Good job :>

I am SO PSYCHED for the book

Comment by Crankshank (not verified) Sat, 07/31/2010 - 15:24

Comment by Lisa G. (not verified) Mon, 08/02/2010 - 23:43

My Johnny Wander moment of last night: getting into the elevator at my apartment building and noticing that the girl standing next to me had a Johnny Wander tote bag, complete with Yuko + Ananth signatures. I gasped and called out, "I have the same bag :D", but the silly girl was listening to headphones and just gave me a paranoid glance.

Glad I'm not the only one in the area who appreciates the Johnny Wander team!

Hahaha, whoa! That's too

Comment by Ananth Tue, 08/03/2010 - 15:48
