First of all, I wanted to let you know that the Benign Kingdom store is up! If you missed Yuko's art book back when we ran it last year, now's your chance to pick it up.
The latest Benign Kingdom art collection is up and it features Emily Carroll, Gigi D.G., Tyson Hesse and Phil McAndrew! They're all great! Here's the video:
The more things change ... !
We'll be at NYCC this weekend, at the Benign Kingdom booth at 166 in the Exhibitor Hall! Here's a handy map:
All the way on the righthand side, towards the back! We're across from the Mondo booth. We'll have JW books and other merch, as well as all of the Benign Kingdom books! Come say hey and check us out! See you there!

Hey guys! Here's the first of the process posts, as I talked about on Tuesday. This one outlines how we set about creating our latest iteration of business cards. Read it like a magazine.
If that's not enough, you can also check out Yuko's process post on Tumblr about an illustration she's doing for one of the Benign Kingdom posters! Pretty sweet.
Academic paper forthcoming.
More left-handed comics! We should be getting back to right-handed comics in the next week or so. Oh, and again: we're away from HQ and the scanner we have access to is no longer compatible with the OS on our laptops. So we're posting photos and we'll upload corrected comics this weekend! Yup yup.
My brother's visiting and I'm getting the B9 Fall 2012 stuff together so it's busy busy busy! Catch you next week!
... throw it out. Just kidding, just kidding.
OR AM I???
This is another left-handed comic! Yuko's taking it easy until she sees a doctor next week. But take a look at the archive ... they're starting to look more and more like regular right-handed comics! Bananas!
Cricket does this thing where she kind of spaces out and gazes into the distance and well, we have some ideas about that:
Oh dear. Yuko also did this comic left-handed! I think with each passing comic I forget more and more easily. Good job Yuko!
A couple of things I wanted to mention:
Hey guys! Hope this week is treating you well so far. We mentioned that Yuko's having some hand troubles so we're doing some comics about hand troubles. You don't really think about all the things you do with your hand until you try to ease off it! And thanks for all the concern and advice, Yuko's got an appointment with the doc very soon.
Hey guys, we're back from CTcon! Despite any, uh, difficult weather.
I mentioned it briefly last week, but the new Benign Kingdom Kickstarter for the Fall 2012 collection is up right now! Four brand new artists, as well as options to get the previous Spring 2012 books are included. The new lineup is:
