Shuriken Portrait

I’ve had this for awhile at my office but I’ve just now had a chance to scan it.

I got this for $25 from an online comic memorabilia site. It was simply listed as “Anime Girl – Signed.”

A few weeks have passed since Reggie dropped by and said he’d be trying to resurrect the IP. I don’t know if anything has happened since, and the site he mentioned had nothing new on it for Shuriken. Crossing my fingers for him.

Anyway, The Cosmic Courtship has surpassed $13k! We’ve got one week left on it, and if we get over $15k, we’ll be making the scans available.

Critical Blast Interview with Michael Tierney, The Local Comic Shop Guys, and Wild Stars Art From DarkFilly

Friday night, Michael Tierney and I were on with R.J. Carter of Critical Blast talking about the new issue of Cirsova and The Artomique Paradigm.

Saturday, Michael also appeared on the regular Critical Blast feature round-table of comic shop owners.

Here’s a piece of the Red Queen of the Space Pirates of Corsairiana with Achilles Hister the Elder of the Artomiques by Dark Filly.

Be sure to back our kickstarter for our 5th Anniversary Issue!

Some New Art – Kamen Ramen and Yoshika Miyako

In between working on a freelance project over the weekend, did some painting.

First here is Kamen Ramen from Tim Lim and Mark Pellegrini’s Kamen America 2. If you missed the crowdfund, it will still probably be available soon from Iconic Comics.

Next is Yoshika Miyako, the Jiangshi, from Touhou Ten Desires. The scan kinda cut her hands off, but you get the idea.

Anyway, we’re in the final countdown to our Winter issue, the last of 2020.

Please be sure to pre-order it! It’s available in print through Amazon now.

Also, don’t forget to grab Misha Burnett’s Endless Summer or drop a review if you’ve had a chance to read it!
