I finished Eat Me, a comic I’ve been working on for the past few years on Filthy Figments. It is now a complete series, about 180 pages. It’s a drug-fueled adventure-porno about food and power and sex and monster battles.
As far as when it’ll be in print, I’m gonna get to work on the book now, but it won’t be available online for one full year, so October 1st 2015. You can read it on Filthy Figments or buy it from me in person at a show or convention. There will be a bonus chapter in the book.
I’m really happy with how this weird comic turned out. I hope you enjoy it.
Today’s Meaty Yogurt page.
Jackie often tries to achieve greatness in ways that don’t necessarily merit chapters of their own. In this case, she’s decided to train to be a competitive eater. It’s definitely a loaded situation, showing a fat girl eating a whole bunch. Media tends to portray fat girls two ways. 1: constantly eating, very greedy people or 2: always on a diet, and good because of it. A lot of times, fat girls are only acceptable if they’re doing the “right” thing trying to “improve” themselves by not eating. But Jackie, she eats. A lot. And that has no bearing on her moral character. After this page, she barfs during dog 10, and decides competitive eating is not for her.
When Anna’s sister Kat is murdered, Kat’s ghost can’t move on, and shares Anna’s body for most of the time, but sometimes she likes to pop out to have a face to face chat. Anna is used to sharing close quarters with her sister, from the time they were kids living under a sink to their cramped little apartment on the circus train, but this might be a little more than Anna is comfortable with.
From the next comic I’m working on, which will happen once the patreon gets to that level, so if you like supernatural murder mysteries with spunky circus ladies and ghosts and mutants and you have $1 you’re not doing anything with, consider backing this.
So, if my Patreon gets up to $1500, I debut a second regular webcomic. I’ve been working on these characters since 2011, and I’ve finally figured out enough of this story to actually work on it as a comic (instead of the novel I got 50,000 words into before I decided it’d work better as a comic). I’ve also more or less figured out how I want to draw everybody.
The story is about Anna, a fortune teller with the Samson Brothers Circus, trying to figure out who murdered her knife-throwing twin sister, Kat, whose ghost is restless. Soon after the murder, other members of the circus, all of whom are suspects, begin developing strange mutations, which ringmaster and circus owner Jebediah Tetanus is all too happy about. It takes place in a loose version of post Civil War America as the circus train traverses the country. It’s not steampunk, though there are some anachronisms. (No goggles and no airships, gears on trains not hats.) It’ll be for an audience of teen and up, mostly for violence. It is a supernatural murder mystery, after all.
I just hit 20,000 followers. If 8% of you gave me $1, the goal would be met and you would get to read this series. That’s entirely do-able. So consider checking out my Patreon!
Short shorts and tiny tops are not an invitation for your commentary. The temperature is higher than my patience.
Reminder that I’ve got two stories in the upcoming Monster Anthology: Demon Edition, which is a bit over $5k away from reaching its goal. They’re cool stories. I’d love to share them with you. It’s gonna be super cool.
For those of you who haven’t been able to make it to my shows to buy my mini comics, great news. They’re now in my online store! See what really goes on in a traveling burlesque show. (Spoiler alert: so. many. smells.)
Front covers for the YU+ME omnibus collection are done! I’m incredibly happy with them, all kinds of symbolism, all telling a thousand words, oh yeah.
If you didn’t already order them through the kickstarter, and want to get them, sign up to be notified when they go on sale! People on this list will get a 3 day head start to order these books, head start on the few remaining t-shirts, $5 off the books, and a head start to order Meaty Yogurt book 1 before the rest of the public. So many benefits!
Right now, there are just about the same number of people on the list as there are extra books, so it’s possible they’ll sell out before they go to the general public. It’s a very good idea to sign up for this list. I’m only using it to notify people when the books are on sale.
Well, this grindstone still requires my nose, so I’d best get back to it.
