Rook loves the air conditioner ... if he ever figures out how to turn it on we'll be in trouble, I think.

BIG NEWS! I'm very excited to officially announce that we've joined Topatoco! We're so psyched and very pleased to be partnering with Jeffrey, Holly and the fine folks at Topatoco to be able to bring you quality wares.

What does this mean for you? It means we have the capacity to make more STUFF! More comics, more art books, more t-shirts and totes and who knows what else! It also means we'll eventually have the chance to do a hoodie, something we didn't have the capacity to do on our own. 

Speaking of stuff - here's a rundown of what Topatoco is carrying right now! Check out the handy side banners or read below or just head on over:

  • Yuko's Benign Kingdom art book! There are regular editions and limited sketch editions that Yuko has drawn in. Gorgeous 32-page full color books.
  • Johnny Wander Vol. 1 and Vol. 2 Special Editions are available again, in limited supply! If you were hoping to get one, now's the time to go for it!
  • CMYCat totes are in stock!
  • Phoenix Down tees are also in stock! Men's and Women's!
  • Patches! 

We'll keep you posted as things develop - we've already got plans for new tees. And a BIG thank you to Topatoco for making this happen! We'll catch you guys on Thursday!

Woohoo Topatoco! Just FYI, I would destroy worlds for a Phoenix Down hoodie. Not sure if I'm alone on this, but that shirt is soooo cool!

I would wear the shit out of a plain hoodie with a JW emblem, especially if it was a Phoenix Down or CMY one.

Sweet, can finally pick up the books. I'd love to see the CMYcat shirts come back soon.

I'm happy for you!

I'm happy for you! That's really good news, I must admit that Topatoco's shipping is a little high for me (living in Australia), but if anyone can convince me to spend that money it would be you guys so ... KUDOS!

Oh congrats on Topatoco!,

Oh congrats on Topatoco!, Hopefully that will work out well.

Speaking of a/c, we had a scorching 34*C the other day and of all things the a/c broke down. My cats were not happy about that either, since one is a long hair. Had to get someone in to fix it. Ironically my cats are afraid of the fans when they are on.

My parents' three cats do the same thing, except they fight over who gets to sit in the best part of the airflow. The big one always "wins," but he ends up being sat on by the two smaler cats. xD

29'c ambient plus an excess of direct, high angle sun at the weekend, and i had to help my brother move out. it was at this point i found that not only is the AC in my "new" old car not very good at demisting the screen, but it's not very good at cooling either. Must be low on gas...

Sat there in creeping traffic with the AC on, recirculating with max fan, and still feeling like Rook when he needed to be put in the freezer....

Great news! Congrats, you guys! Is it weird to say I'm happy at the prospect of giving you more money for things?

So perfectly true!

The first year we were in our home we learned to compromise with the cats so they would only lay on half the vent.

I love those last two panels, so freaking cute!

Cat comics are great comics. Right up there with Yuko's Dad-comics.

Ever think about mixing the two together?

Congrads! That's awesome news!

Aww, damn D:

As much as I like Topatoco itself as a store, for me that's pretty bad news. I always loved how your stuff got to me incredibly fast considering it being shipped from America to Germany and went completely under the radar of customs folks. Whereas Topatoco takes months to arrive and always gets lengthily stuck in customs - which obviously makes the whole process more expensive for me as well, adding 20% to whatever I paid...

I mean I'm still quite happy for you since this seems to be great on your end - it's just quite annoying on mine :/
