Your amazing support not only rocketed Joyride (see what I did there?)
from a 4-issue miniseries to an ongoing, but thanks to you we keep selling out! Check out these intensely rad covers for our second and third printings of Joyride!
June 6 and 7 is Special Edition New York and I will be there with my new print this year. Last year it was the Bat Fam and this year is the Superman Fam coloured by the very talented Irma Kniivila. Come by and say hi and I hope to see you all there!
In ink related news, I visited Wonderpens recently and it’s the most lovely shop run by the most lovely people. Plus - they do 2mL ink samples for super reasonable prices and I straight up just have an ink habit now haha.
March is a month full of all the licensing stuff I did with DC comics, this time it’s for General Mills cereal. This month in boxes of Cocoa Puffs, Lucky Charms, Honey Nut Cheerios, Trix and Golden Grahams you can find 1 of 4 mini comics and one of them titled “Picture Proof” was written by Marguerite Bennett, pencils and inks by myself and colours by Irma Kniivila.
As promised, a look at the Catrin/Uma mind-meld sequence from JOYRIDE #3 - from our initial script to Marcus To’s insanely perfect art. Note the lack of panels, the amount of “you do you, Marcus!”, etc. This book is like jazz - and here’s our sheet music.
Should it be any surprise the difference is striking?
Next time somebody tells you comics is a writer’s medium, show them JOYRIDE. So say the writers of JOYRIDE.
