Hey guys! That's the last page of the Lucky Penny excerpt (courtesy of the kind folks at Oni Press). If you're curious, here are links to the whole thing: 

We've gotten a lot of questions about when it will be out. Short answer is we're not sure! Yuko's working hard on it! But we'll be sure to mention it on the website when the publication date nears. Hope you enjoyed it!

@ConnorGSims made an animated version of this comic - check it out! And if you click on me right before I take my hat off, you get the alternate ending (incidentally my favorite). 

We're a little swamped right now so we're going to get right back to work - see you next week!


Hi Gonta

God I love the Gonta face, it's just so very telling of EXACTLY what emotional and mental state the person (or cat) is currently going through.

Penny's face in Panel 3 is absolutely priceless. I've never seen '...oh shit!' conveyed so perfectly, haha. Looking forward to the release, I'll be buying it. :)

And just you wait. They'll unpack all those boxes only to discover the keys were in Penny's pocket the whole time!

Yup, I can totally see that

Yup, I can totally see that happening with her luck! Or there lack of!

Where they really are.

They're in the sandwich she packed for the road, of course. The keys are always in the sandwich!

Yay I can comment now!

Over the past few days I swept through the entire JW archive, and I only have one thing to say.

You guys are AWESOME. >:D

Your everyday adventures crack me up and at the same time get me thinking about similar experiences I've had. I only wish my life was half as interesting as your guys' is! Whether the situation is relatable or just plain weird, you guys really deliver!
Yuko, your grasp of expressions is fantastic and VERY amusing! Your cat-faces especially make me giggle ^^ and thank you Ananth for your comments afterwards, JW just wouldn't be complete without your jokes :D

Thank you both for giving me a bit more of a reason to smile :)

Her EYES! They're HUGE! Hahaha! I'm so interested in seeing how it all plays out! I hope it comes out without too many problems!

That's precisely what I thought of too.

You got me hooked, guess now I have to buy the book(s?)

I'm glad I'm not the only one who thought Penny looked like Gonta, lol. Can't wait to read the whole of 'Penny' when it gets released! :)

I would just hot-wire the car instead of trying to find the keys in that mess and then having to repack it all

I was waiting for something really happy and heartwarming to happen, haha. That poor girl.

I might actually pick this

I might actually pick this up whenever it comes out. This preview certainly ended on a hilarious note, and like almost everything you guys make it has that certain charm that really hits close to home.
