are there any itchy spots?

as usual, please read from right-to-left.

10 daysssss

we suck, we know...

Sorry for the long drought of posts. We've got a slew of comics in the works, but haven't had time to finish the touch-up and formatting of them yet. Evan tells me we will have a new comic by tomorrow, (maybe sooner) and we're working still on some sort of crazy mid-length masterpiece that will make you poop with joy! so don't give up on this site yet, pleeez!

flattery & parody

We've just done another Yoshida Sensha comic, and we'll be posting it a little later this afternoon.

In the meantime, we wanted to share the tiny few links to places that have linked our blog in the past week or so. It's super funny for us (and flattering!) to find the blog mentioned anywhere, but here they are:

The first is someone who references a new Burger King commercial, and links to angle/humor of the spot to ... YOSHIDA SENSHA's 4-panel gag style? I hadn't seen the commercial before, but it's definitely odd enough to make the parallel. I think the guy waking up with a King is his bed doesn't look QUITE uncomfortable enough, but who knows. Check it out on this post.

I have no idea what this is, but we're on the top of page two along with a pic of a dude eating a huge burger and hentai stuff. wheeeee!

Last, but not least!, we have a parody of our titular strip, made by someone on LJ named "paradesend". Please enjoy:

resting on our laurels

we're NOT DEAD!

We're just taking some time to catch up on other things and congratulate ourselves on finishing 'The Gold Notebook.' I went to visit my mom for Mother's Day last weekend, and translated about 8 pages on the plane of a Junji Ito story called, "落下" (Maybe we'll call it "Falling"?). I'm making time on Friday to have my collection of Ito stories and book 1 of Kazuo Umezu's "Baptism" unbound for scanning.

In the meantime, here's an awesome, awesome japanese site with an index of every Maruo book published in Japanese.

May be hard to navigate since none of it's in English, but the covers are radical.

Also, this site has a list of
album art he's done. The strangest thing on the site just might be the book, "How to Take a Japanese Bath" that Maruo illustrated way back when.

Also, (on a semi-related string) please check out our friend GEA's amazing galleries of paintings and doodles. She's on the verge of a major site overhaul, but you can check out her past work-- a MUST for fans of Maruo (what the hell, is this turning into a Maruo fansite or something?) and Trevor Brown. We are both completely impressed with her work and can't wait to see the new site!

another Yoshida Sensha coming soon!

We just finished another story for you Maruo fans out there... "The Gold Notebook". As with Maruo's work in general, it's perhaps best reserved for mature audiences, but this is the most extreme one we've posted yet, so I figured I'd warn the squeamish. Anyway, enjoy!
