Volume 1 Preorder! [Jul. 16th, 2010|09:32 am]

The initial shipment of the book has arrived and it looks INCREDIBLE! I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out.

This is a Xeric Award-winning, full color, hardcover book, 192 pages (with an additional page of the story that won't ever go online). All for $20 plus shipping!

And from now until August 16th you can get the book with a custom sketch inside on the title page for FREE. Just let me know what you want drawn in the order notes. This sort of thing will cost another $5 later on, so take advantage! (The reason this is a preorder is because I won’t get all the books until mid August; I have a small amount to debut at San Diego Comic-Con. But if I have leftovers I’ll be sure to ship them out earlier.)

There are also a bunch of other new items in the brand new store. Two new shirts, a couple prints, and a poster. So if you ever wanted to support the comic now is your chance!

Volume 1 Cover [Mar. 10th, 2010|04:07 pm]
It occurred to me that I never posted here about winning a Xeric grant. I got a Xeric grant!! I'm furiously getting everything ready to print. Here is the cover for Volume 1. Any feedback would be much appreciated.

You'll notice that it doesn't say "Shi Long Pang". Well, I'm thinking about dropping it for the print book. Whenever I say the title of the comic to a stranger, they're always like, "Wha?" Pang, The Wandering Shaolin Monk seems like it'd be much easier to understand, especially if you're pronouncing the "Shi" as "sure". However, everything up until now on the internet and in the Xeric press release etc, has been Shi Long Pang. Should I just go ahead and do it?

Team Iron Crotch [Dec. 17th, 2009|11:11 am]
I haven't posted in about 40 years, which has only been justifiable in the last month and a half. I had a tumor scare! On Dec. 7th I had surgery to remove a liver tumor that turned out to be benign, thankfully. It was the size of a softball, and I'm told if you touched it, it started to bleed! Plus I'm going to have a giant footlong scar across my gut. Awesome? I'm still recovering.

Anyway, I had this shirt ready to sell back in late October, but the tumor got in the way.

If you decide that you want to purchase one at this moment, I'll get right on it and try to ship it out in time for Christmas! Go Team Iron Crotch!

Here are a bunch of pages that I've neglected to post here. There are still some continuity things I need to go back and fix, but there you have it!

Shi Long Pang page 122-24 [Nov. 15th, 2008|10:10 am]

I'm still kind of letting the story coast after the huge flashback, with hopefully a little comic relief, or at least "faint smile" relief.
