That Starbucks Ceiling Fan

Littered in coffee grounds! They've got to be. One day years from now they'll start scraping them off and add a new item to the menu. Just for you, John. 

Updates on the store: Special Edition books are back! Yuko's design is up for sale at Hey Chickadee! And we'll be adding some new things in the next few weeks, including (gasp!) vinyl toys. 

If the horse represents my feelings!! My family did Christmas but we weren't super into it and I don't understand your strange customs!! Whatever Christmas is over!

Special Edition copies of JW:V1 are back in stock!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! More mini-comics from the holidays. Thoughts:

Happy New Year!

These are some snippets from our holidays - we've been intending to do something like this for a while, and you'll likely see more in this format crop up. The night if the snowstorm Yuko Initial Y'd it and Tokyo-drifted us all the way home. Some nice driving! Also, I got her a new hat with lots of snaps and buttons -- I think she likes it! 

Holidaze

When asked to comment, Yuko Ota grumbled loudly and left the room.

In case you were wondering, our eggistential crisis is over. Thanks for all the recipe suggestions! 

Rook actually came to Yuko's parents' house with us this year! Which means he's meeting Mika and Gonta, which means you guys will get some comics out of it. I've got notes for a lot of 'em, so I'm going to wait a little bit and cull out the best stuff. 

Great Eggspeggtations

Thu, 12/23/2010 - 23:16 by Ananth in response to how did we get two dozen eggs anyway

I don't hate eggs, and they're not terribly eggspensive, but ughhh. I guess I should have eggspected to get sick of them, especially when the rate of consumption goes up eggsponentially.

There's nothing I can do to make that better for you, so I'll just leave it there. Please, don't thank me. I do it for you. 

Don't listen to him

EDIT: Reader Nate and his lovely girlfriend sent us a corrected version of the comic. Thanks guys!

True story: I once made grilled cheese with a hairdryer in college! The girl I borrowed it from wanted nothing to do with me after she found out. ): And the grilled cheese turned out bad, too - so not worth it. 

Brrrr.

We weren't originally going to post this, but what the hell! The internet issue is fixed! Sadly it's still freezing in here. All of us are wearing some combination of layers like Yuko is - she wins for most layers, though. Brrr.

I have yet to take the plunge, which is odd - I'm usually the one with the sweet tooth. I don't know how I feel about that oily residue, though -- it doesn't sound appetizing? I'm going to wait for independent confirmation (i.e. you guys and gals). Some of you must have tried this! Google yields real results, so this is definitely a thing that people do.

Oh, designer jokes. Typically when a designer puts something together for print, they are working in a CMYK color space - Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and the K is for Black (as in Key Black). It has to do with the way printers are set up. Anyway! The point is that Rook's tongue is magenta, his eyes are yellow, he is all black ... only the cyan was missing! UNTIL NOW. 

Okay okay you guys don't care.

Yuko's got some new art up on her Tumblr! Take a look.
