First thing I saw when I got to this page was "defile me grandpa" out of context and that was certainly an interesting way to start my afternoon.

@plasticwrap: Yes! It's from a poem by Abu-Nuwas al-Hasan ibn Hani Al-Hakami which I know translated by Vincent Monsour Monteil as 'A Boy is Worth More Than A Girl.' I love his poetry and stand by it in its artistic, literary, and historic importance -- but I do feel it necessary to say that some of his homoerotic poems, such as this one, contain ribald humor that errs on the side of that vein of misogyny not unfamiliar to some male homosexuality. Like Whitman and Rimbaud (who I use earlier), Nuwas writes from a particular and historical and cultural context that is important and interesting to consider when analyzing the queer themes and ideas that are present in his work.

If anyone wants to sell me the Hakim Bey collection of his poems, or knows of a downloadable .pdf of it, please hmu
Is he reading from a text that exists in our universe?
the anthy himemiya energy coming off damien in this page......ugh.

the more i think about it the more the parallels work, quin is a stubborn and reckless hero if i ever saw one. this comic was so fucking made for me
Just spent today binging this comic and...christ...I really needed this right now. I think this immediately became my favorite story about boys in love??? Sarazanmais shaping up pretty good but the art style has nothing on your character designs.

Just...wow. Thanks for making this and telling this story. I look forward to buying prints and print copies soon as I can, and excited for whatever you tell next. Just. Dang.

Author: Have you read the manga "Shimanami Tasogare?"
I saw some pages in it that reminded me of your work.
It's very cool.

@emerald: Fingers crossed, eh?

Thanks -- I'm glad you're interested in owning a physical copy of the series! Currently, because I don't sell enough copies to make a color print run viable, I only plan on offering black and white books (with color covers). However, I do include important art and dialogue edits in the current print books that are not updated online, if that's of interest!

Aahhhhhhh. Hopefully nothing too bad will happen from here on...

When you finish, please have a color printing of the series available! (if I understand correctly, current prints are gray scale only)
