TODAY! Yuko will be participating in a panel about Japanese American Voices in Graphic Novels! You can register to attend for free! Hope you can make it! 



We've been collaborating with some of our favorite cartoonists to create short stories set in the world of Barbarous. They're all written by us, so they're all canon! We're really excited to share these with you!

Our next short story is about Cecilia and the ghost couple from Chapter 3! This one is drawn by Magnolia Porter Siddell (twitter), the author of the great all-ages webcomic Monster Pulse! If you're a fan of Digimon or Pokémon, you'll really dig her comic! Magnolia is a great cartoonist and also recently announced an upcoming book from First Second called Tiffany's Griffin! 

The comic was also lettered by our long-time collaborator, Tess Stone (twitter / website)! He's lettering all of the short stories, a million thank-yous Tess! He's just started up a new comic over on his site called Lemon Drop, so be sure to check it out!
