angercats asked: hey!! i'm the one who asked you where to buy glory! I ordered glory and got it today and WOW. i loved it so much! thanks for telling me where to get it. i can't wait for the next book, i'm totally going to pre-order it!
awesome, that’s great to hear!! i’m really glad you liked it. :D the next volume comes out next month!
Hey! Check it out!
Do you like horror, comics anthologies, and awesome things? Then you’d probably like The Sleep of Reason, a Kickstarter-funded horror comic anthology from the people behind Smut Peddler! This book is going to be awesome, but it needs your help to fund it.
To help get the word out about the Kickstarter and this project, I am offering a reblog contest that will last the duration of the Kickstarter. If you REBLOG this post, I will put your name into the magic digital hat I have and you will have a chance to win a full-color character portrait, drawn by me. It can be whatever you like! The winner will be notified at the conclusion of the Kickstarter campaign.
Thanks for any support and reblogging you can offer!
Oh no I want this anthology, but I also have to pay rent :I SPREADING THE WORD NOW.

richardpriceknitwear asked: ok, so if you had to do a complete overhaul of the Wonder woman comics continuity, what would you change in terms of character design and story?
i’m not sure i have any answers for this one, but good question!
i actually know next to zero about Wonder Woman, i don’t know what i would change or keep or what new things i would do in terms of story/concept, i’d have to do a bunch of research first. the only main thing i know is that a lot of people hated the thing in the new series about the Amazons murdering and raping sailors or something like that, which is something i can definitely say i would get rid of.
character design is a bit easier since i know what she looks like, but i’d have to think about it. i’d probably ditch the whole costume (which is what i’d do for every superhero i’d be tasked with redesigning, hehheh, nothing new there) and start over. i know there are a bunch of different costumes she’s had but i don’t think i’ve ever seen one i liked, her costume seems to me like a mish-mash of different ideas that don’t really work rather than one cohesive design. i’d really have to sit down and think about it the costume, i’ve never given this any thought before now, hmmm…
i don’t know, i’m sorry i don’t really have any answers or ideas, i just don’t know enough about the character to make any decisions! :(

I wanted to put up some non-spoilery pages, so here you go! There’s already been a massive outpour of love for the first issue, all of us on the book could not be more proud to birth this strange creation into the comics world. I feel incredibly lucky to be working on this book with this team!
If you can’t make it to a comic shop to pick it up, you can read in online at Comixology here!

Anonymous asked: Totally hope this doesn't come across as hostile or insulting, but as an artist myself I was hoping to possibly learn your perspective. As an artist who consistently draws POC do you ever worry about or reflect on the visibility you receive as a popular comic artist in light of the lower visibility of actual artists of color?
not hostile at all! i think about this all the time, actually. a while back i did a post about this exact topic but maybe it wasn’t on Tumblr, i can’t find it… maybe it was another site. anyway, this answer probably won’t be as good as that other one, haha.
i think about this a lot, as a white artist/writer/cartoonist, and whether or not i’m actually taking visibility away from POC creators. i’ve heard stories from the prose industry that some publishers often have a certain number of “slots” for books featuring POC heroes/main characters, regardless of who the author is, so white authors writing about POC characters can easily edge out POC authors. so i think about that a lot in terms of my own work and career and how things work in the comics field.
it’s tough because even though i can’t point to any instances where i’ve recognized that this has happened, it doesn’t mean it definitely hasn’t, since i don’t know what goes on behind closed doors at my publishers, even my creator-owned indie stuff with Oni Press or whatever. so it’s possible i’ve already edged out POC cartoonists without realizing it, and that weighs on me and i’m not sure what to do about it.
i’ve thought about not writing/drawing POC characters so i don’t edge anyone out and not steal anyone’s voice, but then that comes with a whole other set of problems. i think no matter which way i go there are problems and risks. so i try to just be aware of what’s going on, be aware of the factors at work, the visibility, privilege, etc. and do the best i can with the choices i make and try to stay informed and alert and ready to step back or whatever if need be. and also use my visibility to talk about stuff like this and maybe highlight creators who get overlooked.
i guess i try to do what feels right on a gut level, too, and i feel like having POC characters in my work, despite the very real risk, is right.
i don’t know! tough question!! i wish i could find that old answer i did, i seem to remember i did a much better job at talking about this the first time. XD
