@WindowMaker Don't worry, it works! I'll have to check that song out. :D

@DarkHeart Thank you! <3 >///< Now that things are settling down, I'm working hard to make some real progress on this comic!
Folks in or near Colorado: I'm gonna be in the Artist Alley at Nan Desu Kan this weekend!

It's the only convention I'm selling at this year, so if you're coming then be sure to come find me! I'll have some new prints, an acrylic charm, and a graphic novel of the first three chapters of The Good Prince!

I'll also be taking the next couple weeks off from updates while I finish thumbnails and get started on chapter 4. Sit tight for a bit and the comic will return soon!

Thanks, and I hope to see some of you this weekend! <3
And here's the last full page of chapter 3! What a long road, but it's finally here.

An in-between page will go up next week while I finish preparing for Nan Desu Kan the following weekend, after which I will probably take a week or two off to get started on chapter 4.

Thanks, and enjoy!
Hey, guys!

I was recovering from a tendinitis flare-up last week and had already run out of page buffer, so this page didn’t get made in time. Here it is!

Chapter 3 should finish up at the end of August, but there might be a couple weeks off while I recover from Nan Desu Kan that weekend and get started on chapter 4.

@WindowMaker - But who's counting, right? lol I spent the last year dealing with weird medical stuff and finishing off some pro work for Sparkler Monthly, but now that I have some time again I'm trying to make a real effort on this webcomic thing!

Thanks for sticking with me. It means a lot!

@Azuminii - Hey thanks! I'm gonna keep working on updating more, so thanks for reading! <3
Website and Patreon Launch!
Hey there SJ readers! Long time, no see!

The Good Prince officially has a website and Patreon now! Smack Jeeves will remain as a mirror, but the new home for the comic is at

And if you want to support the comic with a couple bucks each month as I try to update regularly, check out and get behind-the-scenes process updates and early comic pages--next week's page is already live for $5 and up patrons!

Thank you guys so much for reading, as well as your continued support over the years. See you soon!
TGP in October!
Long time no see, guys!

I was saving some of these finished pages for the Patreon I wanna start in the near-ish future, but I'm taking on a big pro project this winter that's going to delay things, so I decided it was better to just push out the rest of this scene.

Twice a week updates in October! Tuesdays and Fridays~
Going on Short Hiatus
Not that I've updated in a few weeks anyway!

Picked up some professional work that's going to require 100% of my attention for the next month or two, so webcomics are going on the down-low until I'm finished.

I have several pages mostly complete for when I return, so look forward to it! Thanks! <3
Thus starts chapter 3!
Chapter 1 may have been the original concept for Conquest, but chapter 3 was the starting point for this project as a BL book.

It all started with a simple question in the summer of 2012:

"What would happen if Arctis seriously confessed his feelings?"

This chapter is the answer to that question.

End of chapter 2!
This marks the end of chapter 2!

Chapter 3 is the part of the story that started this whole thing, so I'm very excited to start drawing and sharing it!

Thanks for reading, and I hope you stick around for more! :D <3
Got some freelance and con pressure on my plate this week, so have a silly old sketch instead.

Soon! Sooooooon...
Camping Trip This Week!
Jeremy and I are on our annual camping trip this week, so no update this time! Assuming all goes according to plan, updates should resume next Friday.

Thanks, guys!
Updates should resume soon!
Anyone who follows me on Tumblr or Twitter should already know that I only had enough update buffer for July, so I can make no guarantees that regular updates will continue consistently, but this has been fun and I really want to get back to doing it again!

I realized I never posted this, so until I finish inking the next page, here's a little something I polished up last year. It's a redraw of an old fan thank you I did back in '10, and also the cover for the individual issue of Chapter 2 which I will be restocking soon for Nan Desu Kan in September.

Thank you all so much for continuing to stick around read this comic, it really means so much to me. :3 See you again soon!
@reidcl999 @___@ Right? Even if it takes 10 years, I will finish this comic! Thanks for sticking around. :3
@NeuroticSoulGobbler Thank you! :D I don't know how long I'll be back, but it's nice!

So that "brief update schedule shift" turned into a year-long hiatus. Oh well.

In the meantime, I got a pro gig with the amazing ladies at Sparkler Monthly and did a short yuri comic for them this past spring! At this point you need to subscribe in order to read it, but you should anyway--it's a great magazine! Alternatively, you can purchase one of the leftover TCAF minis in their store~

I've managed to build up enough buffer that I can update regularly on Fridays again for a bit, so enjoy! If things move quickly enough, I'd like to hurry up and finish #2 and move on to the fun stuff. @__@

Thanks for the support, lovely readers, and enjoy the comic!

Temporary Update Schedule Adjustment
Hey guys! As you may have noticed, updates have been sporadic over the last month or so. I have a lot on my plate at the moment with convention season, publisher submissions, and various other life emergencies on top of a full time job.

Until I get a handle on things and get some buffer going again, Conquest will go on a brief shift to updating randomly/whenever I can. I hope to have things under control once Denver Comic Con is over and done with, but I'll have to wait and see.

Thank you for your patience and understanding in this matter. If you don't follow updates on Smack Jeeves, you can check my Twitter (@sotwnisey) or my Tumblr ( for update notifications too.

See you soon! <3

Back from Comicfest!
So I was totally gonna post something about Comicfest this past weekend and how stomach flu and con prep and convention caused me to skip last week, and then work happened too.

I appear to be kind of busy lately. OTL

Hoping that this won't happen again, here's the new page! I think I finally figured some things out artistically...
April 11th, 2013
Due to convention prep and food poisoning, there's only one page this week instead of two to make up for last week's missed update. The next page is about half-done, but ugh so sick...

Enjoy, and I hope I'll get over this stomach crap quickly! OTL
