- New art up in Extras. The German translation of TJ and Amal is split into four volumes, so this is the cover of the Volume 4 book.
- The adult Yuri!!! On Ice fanzine Kori and I did is now available as a PDF! 18 and older only.
- And speaking of PDFs: coming soon from Iron Circus will be the PDF re-release of the TJ and Amal adult side comic Whisper Grass! I hadn't planned to do a digital release, but
last year someone quite rudely began distributing scans through an ad-laden site, so I figured if someone's going to make cash off my work it's gonna be me, and on top of that I'll make
The rerelease edition has improved art and three never-before-seen ink pinup illustrations! Please look forward to it.
- My convention schedule for 2017 is scaled way back; the only events I'll be exhibiting at for the foreseeable future are AnimeFest
(August 17-20, Dallas, TX) and possibly Staple (Sept. 9-10, Austin, TX - I'm on the waitlist).
Thursday, February 9, 2017:
- Thanks to everyone who came to say hello at Ohayocon! I apologize for my absence on Sunday; came down with a bad cold or flu and spent the last
day and a half of the convention in bed.
- The TJ and Amal epilogue is on its way to a second printing, and should hopefully be available via the Iron Circus store soon. The
omnibus is also about to go in for a second printing!
- I'm happy to announce that Kori Handwerker and I are working on a doujinshi
for the anime series Yuri On Ice, which captivated us with its lovable cast, meticulous research, and relatable depictions of
anxiety, creative block, and struggles to communicate. All this and it takes place in a world without homophobia or rigid gender roles! (Obviously
we both enjoyed the hell out of this show.) The doujinshi will be PDF-only, and available for a minimal charge to readers 18 and older only.
Estimated release date is end of this month.
- And as mentioned in the last update, a bit more TJ&A news is on the way. I'm still taking care of the extras and loose ends on that one.
Wednesday, January 3, 2017:
- Excited to announce that I'll be a guest at Ohayocon in Columbus, OH later this month! I'll be in the Artist Alley, selling books and taking commissions, as well as doing several
panels about webcomics, art, and writing.
- Also have a little bit of TJ & Amal news coming next month! Please look forward to it.

- About/FAQ Updated.
- TJ and Amal won the 2016 Harvey Award for Best Graphic Novel Previously Published! Many thanks to everyone who voted, and to
Iron Circus Comics for publishing the collected edition.
- If you're over 18, I have a 26 page full color comic in the 2016 edition of Smut Peddler: My Monster Boyfriend. The story's written by Spike Trotman, and was a blast to work on.
SP:MMB is only available as a PDF for now, but the print edition is currently at the presses.
Iron Circus Comics is also having a temporary scratch and ding sale on both hardcover
and softcover editions of TJ and Amal!
- I regret to say that Dragon's Lair is no longer hosting Webcomic Rampage, and that I won't be able to make it to Nijicon 2016, so no more conventions this year. My next convention will be Ohayocon 2017, and
hopefully Staple!Austin after that.
