Hey everyone! Today's update is some sketches Yuko did when she went to the zoo. Here's why it isn't what we'd consider a full update:
We received the books! Today we loaded them up, drove them into Brooklyn from NJ, and then drove the car back. Long day, and we didn't get in until about 11 PM. Exhausted.
Yuko had to prep this in Photoshop Elements, which didn't help! These things happen. Anyway, thanks for understanding. See you Tuesday! Which is also when the books will be out!
Hahaha ... this one cracks me up. I love the astronaut in his glasses. This comic was actually done hours ago, but we didn't have internet access at that point.
Also: the books arrived! They will be available for sale on September 28th for $12 + shipping (price undetermined for the artist edition), and we will be shipping internationally. For those of you who are looking to pick up a copy earlier, Bergen St. Comics in Brooklyn is now restocked with more copies.
(I'm writing this on the bus going up 95, so bear with any typos - I'll make corrections when I'm home.)
Adam WarRock did a song called Call Me Johnny Wander - it's based on JW, and - well, give it a listen, it's amazing. And see if you can catch all the references - even I was struggling to keep up!
As it turns out, the Flavor Grenade is a type of Pluot, which is a hybrid plum/apricot. We'll probably go back for it.
Johnny Wander Vol. 1 is now available at Bergen St. Comics in Brooklyn! I'm not sure how many copies we have there, but it's not a lot! Consider them advance copies.
You guys had some questions about the book! Here are my responses,
1. The book is $12.
This is the new image from the back of the business card we're handing out at shows. Pretty adorable! Yuko is a mastermind.
We're back from SPX! Thank you to everyone who came out to support us - or just to say hi! The books went like hotcakes and it's all thanks to you guys and gals, so - THANK YOU!! You really made our weekend. One Adam WarRock also made my weekend, but more about that soon!
Sometimes Evan is like a laser, straight and true, and this was one of those times. And to be fair, he had a really good argument for being a cat, which he'll perhaps elaborate on in the comments if you really want to know. If you're coming to SPX, tell us what animal you would be!
Speaking of SPX, we'll be at booth F10 - see the handy map below,
and we will have these babies:
It's a sauna down there, and showering becomes a moot point once you're down on the platform. New York has an extensive subway system, which is great, but it's also old, so it wasn't constructed with maximum ventilation in mind. It's usually worth it to wait till you come home to shower, but that's just me.
We have two copies of our book!! Here they are,
I think I promised you guys a cover! Here's the front of Johnny Wander Vol. 1: Don't Burn the House Down,
We'll post photos once we get some copies in! Have a good weekend!
He was really excited about chi! Just something I overheard on the subway on the way back from an excursion into the city. Public transit is good for listening in on other peoples' conversations, often whether you want to or not. But I usually want to - sometimes I get a good quote for dialogue or some insight into a group of people (like Wall St).
I should mention that Yuko drew this comic despite being sick - thank you! There are beads of sweat in this ink!! A testament to her grit and dedication.
