Hupa, please don’t touch that.
S.F.S.F.S.F. member Dr. Ala-Alan is working hard on new formulas for the S.F.S.F. WARP ENGINE…
I like this paper!
Page 1 of a 2 page comic. I was just testing out risograph colors, in case you were wondering what this is for!
“Goodbye then, Boy Zero. We’ll meet again.”
This is the sketchbook that I drew SF Supplementary File 2 in.
“You can run but you can’t hide.”
This is a printer spread for SF Supplementary File #2C.
I’m excited to come to the Brooklyn Comics & Graphics Festival on Saturday, November 10th! Please please come say hello to me! This is my first time in the US in about 3 years, and I’ll only be in town for a few days.
I’ll bring copies of SF#1, SF#2, and the Supplementary Files, as well as some copies of Two Eyes of the Beautiful I & II. I have some work in a couple recent anthologies, too! I drew the cover for and made a cool story for Retrofit Comics’ Secret Prison #7 - yeah, that’s the supersized manga/GARO inspired issue! - and I have a tiny, neat story in the teency weency Kus Comics Anthology #12, which was co-edited by Annie Koyama. I haven’t even seen these books in person yet! I’m stoked! I would love to sign them and draw a picture in them, if you ask me!
((BTW, I’ll just mention here… I want to sell some original drawings, to help pay for this trip all the way from Japan. Would you like to buy your favorite page from my comics? Priced from $30 per small page, to $200 for a full-size double spread… “Just ask…”))
See ya there!!
Ugh wtf Risograph why are you not scanning the cover right? See the bottom sheet is my original, and the sheet on top is what’s getting spit out.
Actually I finally worked around this problem just now. I don’t know why it was happening but it has something to do with the Risograph not reading the large black area.
Here’s where you can see the last thing I drew on the book. You might notice that the first batch had a different character peaking out on the back cover. That’s fun, right?
Today I will attach the cover to the collated guts (I think that’s a word that means: the non-cover pages inside). Tomorrow I’ll crop them and send orders out in the mail. BTW I got sick last weekend but I am glad that my timeframe seems to be working out well. Yes, I’m cutting it close. But… I think it’s gonna be okay…
SF#2 - it’s a new zine, IMO you should get it!! Debuting at SPX, and you can order it, too.
Basically, it’s about a little boy named Hupa Dupa whose parents were killed by Space Pirates, so he gets adopted by the Space Fleet Scientific Foundation Special Forces and joins a galactic war. The story is inspired by Matsumoto Leiji’s great space opera manga Queen Millenia.
Coming soon! I’m almost done! (Taken with Instagram)
