Red String - volume 8 PREORDERS

redstringdirectorscut:

image

Now taking preorders for Red String volume 8 (Theatrical Release version). This version is for readers who wish to have the series in print as it ran on the website. The directors cut versions will be available via a kickstarter at the end of the year.

redstringdirectorscut:

These five epilogue illustrations are for the back of Red String volume 8 “theatrical release” version.  I will be adding them to the regular Red String website as well. Gosh, I really REALLY wish I had had the physical and mental energy to do these when the series original ended. As I look back at myself now I can finally SEE how worn out I was back then while I was preparing to give birth to baby #2. But very excited to finally do them now! If you see any typos do let me know!

Reblogging from my RS blog. Will be opening up preorders for this book in the next twelve hours.

NOSTALGIA AS A WEAPON: THE SAILOR MOON RENAISSANCE IS A FEMINIST MISSION BEHIND THE LINES OF POP CULTURE
By Juliet Kahn
Sailor Moon did not enter my life so much as consume it. I was eight, and in the space of a few weeks I learned all the attack names, bought the first two issues of the manga, went through three different understandings of how to pronounce “Takeuchi”, and developed a tiered list of my favorite characters.
I spent hours spelunking the MIDI-laden cave that was Geocities, learning the language of dub-versus-sub wars, exploring webrings, indulging in awful pidgin Japanese, and realizing that I was not actually the only person in the world that loved this show. I filled the drawer of my nightstand with printouts of art book pages (I never did anything with them, but they were the most beautiful things I had ever seen and I needed to possess them somehow). I scraped up a special outfit — a white turtleneck and blue pleated skirt, with my hair in pigtails — just to wear while watching the show.
Opinions crowded my head, the first ones I’d ever really developed on my own: on translation choices, best and worst story arcs, ideal romantic pairings. I didn’t just write Sailor Moon fanfiction — I wrote Sailor Moon poetry. It was, by far, the most vivid and vital part of those last few playground years.
Today, Sailor Moon is inescapable. There’s the new anime of course, and the new musicals, the merchandise, and the retranslation of the manga. But it’s the emblem of a wider renaissance as well, a resurgence of love for mahou shoujo, or magical girl anime and manga — a movement led by women well out of their childhood years.
A quick stroll through Tumblr reveals Sailor Moon cupcakes, punky Sailor Moon jackets, heartfelt essays about what the portrayal of lesbianism in Sailor Moon meant to the reader, dozens of artists working together to reanimate an episode of the anime, Sailor Moon nail art tutorials, cats named Luna, Beryl, Haruka and everything in between, hand-sculpted figurines, ornate embroidery projects, and an endless avalanche of fanart. Sailor Moon as an Adventure Time character. Sailor Moon cheekily clutching a Hitachi Magic Wand. Sailor Moon as a vicious biker chick. Sailor Moon protesting the Supreme Court’s Hobby Lobby ruling.
Sailor Moon fans have not so much rediscovered their love for Naoko Takeuchi’s sword-and-sparkle epic as they have elected her queen mother of their imaginations and ultimate aspirational self. She is, simultaneously, symbol, cause, and leader.

Probably the best thing I’ve written for ComicsAlliance so far. Enjoy! &lt;3

AMAZING ESSAY, EVERYONE GO READ IT IMMEDIATELY YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT

Sailor Moon decided my career as a comic artist. I was always interested in creating comics but they were my take on superheroes and mutants. Nothing wrong with that but I followed X-Men for the few romances in them.Then for the first time I found there was a comic (manga) created by a WOMAN. She was successful at it and she was writing the type of story that spoke to me; romance and love and female characters. I realized you could DO that. You could write about these things in comics. And so I did.

Dragon Commission I did this month.

I went on a date!

The hubby and I went on our first date (definition: going out somewhere without the kids or for an errand; to enjoy ourselves) since November of last year. Wow, it felt SO amazing to do this. We went to a movie and checked out Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. Very enjoyable movie and very refreshing to just get out and about together.

We’re seeking submissions of Young Adult stories with asexual/aromantic main characters! We’re looking for main characters ages 14-18 who experience positive character growth though the story.

Please see the information in the poster above or check our our submission guidelines.

See a more complete list of what we’re looking for at the original post. And please, give us feedback if there’s something you’d like to see that we’ve left out.

I will boost this as much as possible. Seeing ace stories when I was younger would have made a world of difference, and even now that I’m older and know what I identify as, there still aren’t enough stories about people like me. Kudos to HIP for being so proactive about the representation available through their publishing house.

And here’s the finished art (though not the finished back cover obviously) for Red String Volume 8.
Book is going to be 224 pages. It will have four pages of filler/extra art between chapters and a few little extras in the back (pgs 219-224).

Just reblogging this on my main account.

Work for July.

Got a lot on my plate right now, but trying to systematically get through it all.It’s going to be a very busy month. Now if only I can stay conscious long enough to get it all done in time!

COMMISSIONS: Completed a commission on Tuesday, coloring another right now, and starting a third that I just received this week. I don’t think I will be opening up commissions again this month unless things are dire, but I plan to open them up again in August.

RED STRING: I am working on getting the no-frills Red String vol.8 put together so I can have it in time for Dragon*Con at the end of August. I am also working on the Director’s Cut here and there for the Omnibus. You can read more details on this project here.

LOVE NOT FOUND: Working on keep my buffer healthy. I have been working on comic pages for this series, trying to keep it at 6 weeks ahead of schedule.

DRAGON*CON: I am starting to get a list together of all the merchandise I need to order or put together for the con. Crap, that’s a lot of planning!

ERSTWHILE KICKSTARTER: Got a little sidetracked from this while I was doing commissions to raise money to pay the bills and then the sick baby, but we are now back on track and packing up orders. We should be able to zoom through a bunch of them over the course of this coming week. Very excited to get everyone their books!

And this is just a list of the things I still have to do, not the things that have already been accomplished this month!
