New "WILD MAN" episode on blog!
So, contained in 2 new posts on my antizerogravity blog I've posted a preview of an episode which will appear in the summer and fall 2010 volumes of Mome.
The episode concerns Georg Steller's marriage to Helena Brigitta, who at first agreed to accompany her husband on the Second Kamchatka Expedition, across Siberia. As later episodes reveal, Frau Steller did not make it very far, and Steller spent the rest of his life heartbroken over the matter.
Meanwhile, we just hit the $1300 mark, thanks to you!
This weekend I'll be posting some sample prints of the Steller sea lion and the sea otter, from "Beasts of the Sea". So, check out the new artwork, and please help spread the word about "WILD MAN".
Thanks again, everyone!
