HEY GUYS! This is a four page update, so be sure to click through. IS THIS WHAT YOU WANTED is a collaboration with Tessa Stone & Sarah Stone. We'll be running chapter 1 on the site, and then it'll migrate to its own website. 

Tessa co-created the comic with me, and she's doing pencils and inks! Sarah is (incredibly) coloring the pages! You can find more of Tessa's work at NOT DRUNK ENOUGH, and more of Sarah's at MONSTER BOYS & ROBOTS

That's all for now! Let's have fun!

PRESS & COVERAGE

Hey! Here's some Lucky Penny news!

  • We did a fun interview with Diamond Bookshelf! We talked about our favorite romance novels, and a little bit of process! But mostly ROMANCE! 
  • We got a starred review in Publisher's Weekly! Very cool! From the review: "Penny’s story grew out of Hirsh and Ota’s Johnny Wander webcomic, and they’re in perfect sync, delivering drily funny dialogue and outlandish visual comedy that plays with conventions of film, manga, and geek culture (for her part, Penny adores fantasy romance novels with titles like Dragon Lust and Succubus Seduced, which she organizes “according to hotness”)."

  • Yuko got interviewed for PREVIEWSworld's How To Draw month! She talks about growing up drawing, dragons, and... dragons, basically. It's fun, check it out! 

  • We got featured on Unshelved! 
  • There's another interview coming along!
  • If you want to order Lucky Penny through your local comic shop, just head on over and ask them to order it!

That's all for now! We'll update this as things move along!
