We won an Ignatz! And we're kickstarting a new book, OFFHAND!

Hey everyone! LONG TIME WOW! We're here to tell you about two cool new developments!

1. OUR CATS ARE MORE FAMOUS THAN US WON AN IGNATZ!

Our Cats Are More Famous Than Us is the descendent of this Bookstarter-- we collected the previous 3 volumes, plus the never before collected fourth volume, into an omnibus. We made Our Cats Are More Famous Than Us with a lot of love!

Our Cats Are More Famous Than Us won in the category for Best Collection! The Ignatz is a festival award given out at SPX in Bethesda, MD, named after a character in George Herriman's comic Krazy Kat, in which a mouse named Ignatz was constantly trying to brain Krazy Kat with a brick. It's an honor, so we wanted to take a moment to thank you for backing this kickstarter because you were instrumental in helping us to keep this whole Johnny Wander thing going at a crucial time. Thanks so much!

Dang!
Dang!

 2. We're kickstarting OFFHAND, a new collection of art from Yuko!

OFFHAND chronicles Yuko's journey with wrist issues and the subsequent development of art drawn with her non-dominant hand. It collects the art in chronological order, and each section is bridged by brand new comics that form an over-arching narrative. Check it out:

I hope that piques your interest! You can see the kickstarter here!

Hello everyone!

Just a quick message to let you know, our latest book CUTTINGS is up for preorder on Kickstarter! It's going to collect color comics like Girl with the Skeleton Hand, Delilah & The Basilisk and more, along with never before seen art from Yuko Ota's sketchbooks. She's filled 30 sketchbooks since 2005 and much of the art has never been posted online. You can read more about the new book over at the KS page:

 Thanks for your time and have a lovely day!
