QUICK, SOMEONE TELL ME WHAT THE KANJI SAYS

I HAVE TO KNOW IF IT REALLY WAS AN ESCAPE CHUTE

we love comics

Tue, 06/23/2009 - 00:14 by Ananth in response to guest comic - who loves comics?

Hey guys! Today's guest comic is the last of our two, and it's from Jamie Noguchi of Angry Zen Master. He is also currently artist on Erfworld, and furthermore works at NASA doing graphics and web work. He's also worked for industry heavyweights like Udon and Marvel, so as you can tell he is good, and he has a pretty wide range of skills that run the gamut. 

Yuko's back from Japan!

Wed, 06/17/2009 - 23:03 by Ananth in response to flights and flights of stairs

Welcome to our new readers!

So we were supposed to run Jami's guest comic today - it's still going to run next Tuesday! Yuko was conscious enough to pretty up one of the comics she drew in her Japan journal, so here we are. She does lament how terrible she is at Japanese, but between you and me I don't think it's that bad. At least, it's better than mine. 

KONNICHIWA, MANGS

Hey fellas, I'm back in the States!  There are computers here with keyboard layouts that I can understand!  This is truly a Garden of Eden.

I'm going to sleep off the jet lag for a few days.  I hope you enjoy the guest comics (thank you again Jeph and Jami!) and I'll see you all next Monday!  I should have some photos-and-other-things to show off by then.

AND I'LL FORM THE HEAD

(If you are commenting and your comment doesn't show up right away, wait about 5 minutes! We're caching in order to handle the rush from Questionable Content. Thanks!)

Hey guys! So here's the first guest comic of the week, written and illustrated by the especially talented Jeph Jacques! It is a thrill having this, since I'm a big fan of Questionable Content and I've been really impressed with how far it - and Jeph - have come along since the comic's inception. I'm a nerd for your comics man!

Coffee pt. 2

Thu, 06/11/2009 - 02:06 by Ananth in response to she only likes real coffee

If this comic looks familiar, you're not crazy - it's remarkably similar to one we did a while ago. In the same way that I can't deal with coffee, Yuko can't deal with any of the super sweet drinks that I tend to favor ... most recently the Starbucks green tea frappucino. One new development since that last strip is that I started drinking tea - a lot of it! I got pretty sick the past couple of months, and so tea has become a staple, especially during the colder months. 

true story

Mon, 06/08/2009 - 23:21 by Ananth in response to she was pretty angry

This is a True Story, and not super relatable unless you ink with steel nibs! They give Yuko wrist cramps and generally seem like a pain in the ass to use (although I think she is using particularly bad ones) ... but it doesn't matter, because sitting on her desk now is an envelope from a brush company in Britain! I'm excited to see how Johnny Wander looks once she cracks those brushes open - they came on high recommendation from some talented folks (I, uh, can't remember who just now). 

Toaster Oven Runners Up!!

Fri, 06/05/2009 - 13:21 by Conrad

As promised, here are the runners up for the toaster oven contest! My comments about them are inside of the text field on the lightbox that opens when you click on them. I felt this was the least-intrusive way to get these to you guys. Let me know if you absolutely hate it; I'll yank this functionality.

Oh, and apologies for my tardiness. The gang and I are getting ready to move to NYC, and we've all been pretty frantic. As comeuppance, though I have a huge announcement for Johnny Wander readers coming up. I'm hoping to deliver it in a couple weeks. Look forward to it! :D

Yuko's off to Japan!

Wed, 06/03/2009 - 23:41 by Ananth in response to a lesson in appropriate attire

So Conrad has a collection of t-shirts that he wears only at home, because they are comfortable and old and not something you would necessarily want to wear in public. Everyone has these kinds of clothes, the kind they wear when they're lounging around the house. Not all of us wear them to the liquor store, though, and herein lies young Conrad's dilemma! At the very least, I'm sure it's an invitation to get carded. 

Yuko is off to Japan for two weeks! Please join me in wishing her a safe trip and an awesome visit! Don't worry, she drew some comics before she left. ;)

the bravest cat

Mon, 06/01/2009 - 23:15 by Ananth in response to natural defense mechanisms

I periodically visit Yuko's folks with Yuko, and when I do it is not unusual to stumble upon the cats exploring. Mika is the trailblazer - she's fearless and investigates things with great vigor. Gonta, on the other hand, explores primarily to discover new hiding places. As you can tell from the comic above, some hiding places are better than others. I'm just relieved Gonta isn't a cat out in the wild; something just tells me Gonta couldn't hack it.
