We will be in Tokyo in May for Super Comic City! We will be premiering our latest project, THE BRIDE.  The US version’s open now until 28th HERE.  Please read all the information in the description prior to your order.  

The catalog will be suspended from 1-10 May.  Shipping for this doujin is slated to be 15 May.

THE BRIDE is an illustrated novel, not a manga.

Synopsis: Young and pretty eyed Jesse is stranded after his car broke down. An attractive man who turns out to be a cop offers him a ride. Jesse falls prey to the cop’s friendly nature without knowing that he is up for a very unusual and twisted family reunion that will change his life forever

Happy Friday! Here is a composite page from ITW8.  It’s in the process of being inked.  We are shooting for end of Feb for completion but… never know what can crop up. FINGERS CROSSED.  (Yes we are aware we have a typo in the page.)
Minor updates on other ITW news: Our Korean licensor, ImageFrame, inc, is projecting vol. 1 to be out in March/April. It will contain chapter 1-5. 
We’ve ended the pre-order period for the back issues (ITW1, 3-5 and Father Figure).  We’ve collected enough down payments for the reprints. Don’t worry if you missed it - we will print more than enough for you! We are projected to have them in within the next couple of weeks! Please check our site and/or Twitter/FB for updates!
Our first US Convention will be Sakuracon in late March. This will be the ONLY Anime show in the States Jo will appear at. Because GP will be in Super Comic City in May, Jo will not be at Fanime (end of May) this year.

Thank you for coming out to see us in Fanime, if you&#8217;d trekked out to San Jose this past weekend.  We are back and ready to fill the pre-orders - please do be patient with us. This batch of pre-orders&#8217; been our biggest ever and may take up to 3 days to fill.
About this picture: Jo did this during Fanime&#8217;s Sunday Bingo.  Read NYM/Q book and this scene will make sense to you.  This sketch and a signed copy of the NYM doujin went up into a Bingo Round.  So now, the lovely sketch&#8217;s in a nice home of a fan. :)
We are already working on ITW7 (we completed 8 pages of the sketched thumbnails so far). Our aim&#8217;s to have it complete in late July/Early Aug. In the meantime, we are working to port NYM into Japanese and Chinese.
Next up - AX. G|P will not be there but our doujins will be carried in the KittyKafe booths. More info later.

New York Minute started out with 2 concepts.  The second one was chosen for the ‘intimate’ feel and the fit it had with the title.  Again, lack of time was a factor for this cover.  Jo employed similiar coloring technique as detailed in the ITW6 cover entry: Shade in BW first, before layering the colors over it. 

NYM’s shipped - on the plane on its way to Fanime at time of this post.  A final reminder that the pre-order for NYM, Q book and ITW1 Manga ends tonight (May 22, midnight PST).  Any orders placed after this time will only receive the extra goods per availability (from the convention). 

See you soon!!!
