birdprinxe asked: DId you and Yuko intentionally name Walter's car Ophelia for the purpose of yesterday's page because if so that is some sheer brilliance
This is a week old, oops. Yes and glad you liked it! That joke went over better than we expected.
kaitlinpowell asked: Will you and Yuko be back at Emerald City Comic Con this year? I would love to see you guys and buy swag!
We won’t be at ECCC this year. I slipped on our scheduling, unfortunately. We do plan to be there in 2015.
I mentioned having a series of off-days on twitter recently, and ultimate internet sweetheart HamletMachine drew this picture of Penny & Walter getting cozy to cheer me up! It put such a smile on my face, it’s actually on the wall next to my monitor now. I love it when people draw these guys.
HamletMachine draws Starfighter (18+), a comic about hot boys kissing in space! I like how she draws intimate moments, there’s always a lot of feeling in them.
Penny and Walter are from Lucky Penny, serialized on johnnywander.com right now! It’s a comedy about a scrappy, down-on-her-luck girl who loses her job and her apartment, so she decides to live in a storage unit and figure the rest out as she goes. You can read it from the beginning here.
ikillpixels asked: Hey Ananth! Big fan of you and Yuko love the work you both do Johnny Wander is one of my favourite web comics right now (easily top 5) and waiting on the trade of Candy Capers. So I was wanting to ask, do you guys intend for Lucky Penny to be released as its own self contained graphic novel or will it be a part of future Johnny Wander volumes? And do you guys plan or thoughts on visiting the UK, possibly Thought Bubble, Leeds 2014? You will be greeted to a warm and royal welcome.
The Candy Capers TPB drops May 13th from BOOM!
Lucky Penny will be released as a full-length graphic novel from Oni Press! No release date on that just yet, but we’ll be posting about it once things gel.
We’d love to go to Thought Bubble and fully intend to one of these years. Plus I’d love to see England, I’ve never been. No concrete plans just yet, though… We’re buckling down to complete Lucky Penny and planning the rest of our lives around that. RIDE OR DIE!
Happy New Year, guys! Have a Penny and Walter.
This is so goddamn cute
left-handed self portrait. left-handed sharpie pen, left-handed photoshop trackpad.
Got more stuff done for my tenosynovitis, can’t use my right hand for two weeks.
Ananth and I are going to be at Bergen Street Comics tonight (11/30/13) from 4-6pm! I’ll be more or less wearing this outfit and doodling with my left hand.
See you there!
Johnny Wander’s latest Lucky Penny page featured a parody erotic fiction book named Her Longing His Longship and that is why I am nominating it for the Nobel Prize for Literature.
It’s about time.
