T-shirt question!

T-shirt question!

Thu, 05/26/2011 - 16:06 by Ananth in response to girl with the skeleton hand 2 - 1

The first part of a 5-part Girl with the Skeleton Hand story - you can read the previous story here, and here's a little cameo at the end of Delilah and the Basilisk. Hope you enjoy it!

I've been saying we'd put the new t-shirts up this week, but unfortunately our work ran away with us and we just don't have it prepped. I hate to do this, but they'll be up on Tuesday come hell or high water. Sorry about that!

You guys seemed to really like the Batmen! Which leads me to the question: any interest in a Batmen t-shirt? Let us know in the comments below! We're thinking black ink on a white or silver t-shirt. 

The Batmen were also featured on Comics Alliance, where Chris Sims said some really flattering things! Also some side-by-side comparisons of Yuko's Batmen and some real Batmen (I remember Darkclaw and the cowboy, but somehow completely missed the wizard? Batman was a wizard??).

And Johnny Wander also ended up on, a blog that I've been following since college! Some very kind words from Luc Latulippe, one of the Drawn contributors (whose own work is just gorgeous). 

That's all for us! Swing by Tuesday for page 2 of this Girl with the Skeleton Hand arc. And t-shirts. For real this time. 


Tell you what I'd definitely

Tell you what I'd definitely buy...
A full length book about Cecilia and Death! I love these stories! :)

I'd love to have a batman t-shirt! (Is it a problem to deliver it to Europe?) Even if it's not black...

I ordered the cat-fusion

I ordered the cat-fusion mobile chains not too long ago, and it came a weeks time later. No big fuzz, went smoothly. But I guess a bigger item than a flat envelope might take some more, but I trust that unless it's several big items you order, there won't be a problem with shipping (except cost ^w^)

A batman shirt would be great! Though I doubt you would want all of them on one shirt. I think all of the sketches wouldn't fit. Maybe you could offer 2 separate shirts with different sketches.

YEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSS. I need the Batmen shirt. I need it to live.

Oh Shirt!

Yes! Please make the batmen shirt! :D

I just found your comic

Comment by Mosrael (not verified) Fri, 05/27/2011 - 17:37

I just found your comic yesterday, read every page in 10 hours and now I think I'm in love with John. Also, I really love reading comics about/by asian americans (because I am one) and I can't tell you how excited I was when I found yours.

Oh and I don't get asian glow or have alcohol intolerance, neither does my best friend but we're both half korean. My mother turns ruby red and get splendiforously drunk with one half-sip of wine. It's pretty funny actually.

YES PLEASE. ; __ ;

Oh oh! On the subject of shirts, you should totally start making sweat shirts (NO ZIPS! I HAAATE ZIPS. Except, it's a funny word. Zip. Heh..) with Batmen and/or PaleontoLOLogy.

I live in Denmark. It's frakkin cold here...

Cecilia and Death! :D I've missed these two!

I love the idea of batmen on

Comment by Aikachi (not verified) Sat, 05/28/2011 - 05:53

I love the idea of batmen on a shirt :D quite honestly though, your only T-shirt designs I'd actually wear on a regular basis would be paleLOLntology and Phoenix down, and I'm waiting for those to be rereleased, especially the latter c:

I would absolutely buy a

Comment by Nina (not verified) Sat, 05/28/2011 - 08:02

I would absolutely buy a Batman shirt along the lines of what you posted earlier this week!!! I actually forced my boyfriend to come into the room to see it, and he loved it, too.

Duh nuh nuh nuh nuh nuh nuh nuh

Yes I would definitely buy a Batmen tshirt! It'd be cool if you could just pick a few, but it would work as just a very small print as well! =D

I suspect the Death of Rats has been busy lately...

An Internet if the reference is gotten.

Yatta! I caught up, I must say I enjoy the little slice of life you share with your readers. Just commenting to say, keep up the good work!


Comment by Hannah C (not verified) Sun, 05/29/2011 - 17:13

Bedhead!Cecilia is so adorable, and I really like the idea that seeing Death romantically has led to her seeing ghosts (oh, or was it an ability she already had? It just occured to me that that would explain why she can see Death in the first place. Does he have a name when he's not on the job? Oh, and a picture of Death doing other things along the lines of the Batmen would be glorious.)

I'm really happy to see another fictional short story - not that I don't like the autobio comics, but it makes a great change! Basically in my book Yuko and Ananth can do no wrong with Johnny Wander. :D

(end of shameless fan-rambling)

I agree with all this. Can't

Comment by GeniiBean (not verified) Fri, 06/03/2011 - 04:24

I agree with all this. Can't wait to see how their relationship has bloomed. So cute. :)

I find it funny that she always wears those wrist/hand warmers though...

Redo the hokusai t-shirt,

Comment by MagicToaster (not verified) Sun, 05/29/2011 - 18:55

Redo the hokusai t-shirt, pretty please?

I very rarely buy online

Comment by rainboo (not verified) Sun, 05/29/2011 - 21:17

I very rarely buy online shirts, but were there to be a batmen shirt, I would want it! I would spend $20 on that.

She's adorable!

That said, could we get some more Spacklehaus Memoirs at some point? They're some of my favourites, always oddly entertaining in a horrible sort of way.

;o Haayy, me too~! All in one sitting (excluding food breaks.. ).

This is seriously a great comic. It will be forever bookmarked on my web browser. C: <3


Comment by Skie (not verified) Tue, 05/31/2011 - 10:51

SO excited for more of Cecilia and "Death". These girl with the skeleton hand stories are so positively wonderful.

However, on the note of the batmen... while I can see why some people like them, I am not one of them. I get a bit of a smirk from the actions, but I would not buy a shirt. =( *Honesty!*

Girl with the skeleton hand, on the other hand, I would buy anything of. A+! :D
(Same goes for Callie eats Feathers, actually)

Wrapping Paper.

Comment by Sandra (not verified) Wed, 06/01/2011 - 00:25

That is all I could think about after seeing the Batmen. Think about it. I would actually wrap my gifts if I had Batmen Wrapping Paper.

Batman shirts yessss...I am

Comment by Pam (not verified) Thu, 06/02/2011 - 05:54

Batman shirts yessss...I am a HUGE Batman fan and would buy those shirts in a heartbeat!

VERY interested in a Batmen t-shirt!! Would like to see dark blue on white and/or white on black! How funny.
