Modest Medusa as Louise Belcher by JakeRichmond
Modest Medusa as Louise Belcher
Here’s Modest Medusa dressed as Louise from Bob’s Burgers. Bob’s Burgers continues to be one of my favorite shows on TV. The new season just started last week, so I thought now was a good time to finally post this art that I did back in May. This is actually the art for the stick of the month for Patreon backers. You can become a Patron by visiting my patreon page.

I'll be in San Jose at APE this Saturday and Sunday. Find me at booth 167. I've wanted to go to APE since I was in high school, so I'm incredibly, unreasonably excited. I'll have all kinds of cool stuff for sale, including the first issue of Combine!

 Last week I said I’d be announcing a new project today, and I hope you’ll humor me for a few minutes while I talk about it. Combine is a new sci-fi comic magazine that I’ll be publishing with Jaymz Bernard and Micah Berkoff. Each issue of this print magazine will feature new chapters of Ghost Kiss (by me), Shutter Valley Record by Micah and Devil Spy by Jaymz. This is a full color large format print magazine. Think Heavy Metal, but with less boobs. Or Shonen Jump, but in color (and with less boobs). The goal is to do a new issue every other month (which means I’ll be producing new Ghost Kiss comics a lot more frequently).  I’ve been wanting to do a regular print comic for years, so I’m really excited about this project.

We’ve set up a Patreon to act as a subscription service. Here’s how it works. You sign up to receive either a digital or physical subscription to Combine. Each time we release a new issue (about once every two months) you’ll be charged your pledge amounts. In other words, we’ll be release 6 issues a year so you’ll be charged 6 times each year. Once your pledge is processed we’ll send you the new issue of Combine. Shipping costs are included in your pledge!

Just to be super clear, Ghost Kiss will still be available to read for free online. New chapters will appear online about the sometime new issues of Combine are released. Likewise, my current Patreon is still the place to go if you want to help fund Ghost Kiss, Modest Medusa or any of my other projects. The Combine Patreon is a completely separate deal. It’s a subscription service designed to allow us to produce and distribute a bimonthly magazine. We make a little money off it, but not much. This is mostly just a “for fun” project for people who like to hold physical comics in their hand and might enjoy having comics show up in their mail.  I’ll still rely on your generosity through my Patreonfor most of my income.

We plan to release the first issue of Combine at the beginning of October. It will feature the first chapters of Ghost Kiss, Devil Spy and Shutter Valley Record. I’m more excited for the second issue though, which will have an all new Ghost Kiss story. I’m excited to be able to share a magazine with Jaymz and Micah too. They’re both doing great work and I think you’ll really dig Devil Spy and SVR!

Anyway, that’s the big announcement! I’m super excited about Combine and I hope you’ll check it out! Here’s the Patreon link.
