Summer Relaunch: Announcement

Hi all,

1. Yes, I’ve not forgotten this comics review blog. Its existence eats at me everyday.

2. Yes, I’m going to do this. For reals.

I’ve a valid excuse for my disappearance at least: I was hard at work (writing, thumbnailing, drawing and all) my upcoming middle-grade graphic novel Seance Tea Party, and I severely underestimated the energy it took out of me. Whatever morsel of energy I had left was either given to pending freelance work or self-care. Everything else went into the backburner.

Anyway, I’m done with Seance Tea Party! Now that this mountain has been scaled, I finally have the time and space to dedicate to RIBU.

Here are my plans in the coming month or so:

I’ve two interviews with two brilliant artists: Hien Pham, who tells kind, gay stories in the intersection of games and comics; and Taylor Leong, an independent author exploring the intricacies and nuance of faith within the Bible. I’ll also be looking at their featured comics respectively, which I’m excited about!

Because I still need to recover from producing a GN, and this comics review thing is new to me, I’ll be taking time with RIBU. I don’t know when the first interview (with Hien) will come out exactly, but let it be known that I’m working on it. (I’M SORRY HIEN)

Will see you soon!

  1. It is going to be wonderful to see what comes next. All the patience in the world for it.

  2. Yes totally! One of the things I want to do is feature international creators. Not much love for comics outside North America!

    That sounds like a good idea since there’s a lot of genre and great visual storytellers that need to be in the spotlight
