There’s a reason why we’re especially enthusiastic about our latest release, The Initiates: A Comic Artist And a Wine Artisan Exchange Jobs by Etienne Davodeau.

Widely beloved author Neil Gaiman has started the project A Calendar of Tales, in which he invites the world to make art with him.

Lately, a friend has joined our little workspace, bringing a whole new discipline in our comics-dominated world: Michiel Mensingh is an old high-school friend of Yiri, and an acclaimed composer of modern classical music.

So as Noel and I continue to finish up Family Ties, something occurred to me. Together, he and I have created almost 400 pages of comic art. It’s kind of crazy, when I think about it like that. It’s even crazier when I think that it’s been five whole years since I sent him that […]
