Trans Tokyo: A Trek to Two’s Cabin page 3 is here, is now, as is some new Feeping Creatures stuff

Trans Tokyo: A Trek to Two’s Cabin page 3 is here, is now, as is some new Feeping Creatures stuff published on

The exciting saga of my adventure to a Japanese queer/trans bar in Tokyo continues! You can read page 3 here on Studio NDR, or here on Patreon.

The documentary referenced in the first panel is called Queer Japan, and it has officially been released! You can view a promo for it here.

Also, if I knew how to say, “I speak some Japanese, but not much and not well and I definitely don’t understand colloquial speech as opposed to textbook constructions,” I’d say that. But I don’t, so “I don’t speak Japanese” it is.

New Feeps, you say

I do indeed. I updated my Feeping Creatures Etsy shop with some new items, including stickers, zines, and original art. Check it out, and maybe snag some indie art by an indie artist?

Cheers,

Dylan

The second installment of my autobio comic detailing my adventure to a trans bar in Tokyo has arrived, and you can read it here on Studio NDR or here on Patreon.

There was a small restaurant on the same floor as Two’s Cabin (the カレー店, a.k.a. Curry Shop), which had a few people waiting in line outside the door. I think when he first showed up, Masaki (owner and founder of Two’s Cabin) assumed I was waiting to be seated at the restaurant and not for Two’s Cabin to open, because he was a little surprised when I poked my head in the door.

I was glad I’d followed his Instagram prior to my journey, since I at least knew from the photos that I was in the right place.

See you next week for … PAGE THREE.

Cheers,

Dylan

Trans Tokyo: A Trek to Two's Cabin

So many announcements to announce!

First, up, for the next few weeks I’ll be running my comic that originally appeared in We’re Still Here, an autobio comic about my visit to a queer/trans bar in Tokyo.

The first page of Trans Tokyo: A Trek to Two’s Cabin is here on Studio NDR and here on Patreon.

As per usual, Patrons get early access to comics, so new pages go up for Patrons on Monday, and are released to the general internet on Thursday.

I’ll be posting this on Tumblr eventually as well, but since it’s a short comic it makes more sense to do a single post there rather than individual pages in separate posts.

Be Gay, Do Comics

Meanwhile, The Nib is running a Kickstarter for this giant tome of queer comics, culled from the many pieces they’ve run online over the years. I have some work in this book, alongside a host of numerous other amazing cartoonists. Go forth and back the Kickstarter to snag a copy for yourself!

Valley of the Silk Sky progress report

Finally, I will actually have a new chapter of Valley of the Silk Sky: The Long Run to post soon. Chapter 11 is fully penciled and inked, and I’ve now moved on to coloring.

Current plan is to start posting pages around about the 5 (!) year anniversary of the comic, which is in mid-January.

So! Lots of comics coming your way. Stay tuned!

Cheers,

Dylan

Exciting Fact: The graffiti in the lower left panel is culled from various actual Tokyo stickers and tags I took pictures of, though they weren’t all on a single wall like that.

Mejibray Visual Kei metal show autobio comic

I made a diary comic about going to a heavy metal show in Japan, and the first installment is up at The Comics Journal. There’ll be a new page each day this week! I’m not going to spam you with posts for each new installment, but once it wraps I’ll post another link so you can read the whole thing.

Also, because I am a giant nerd, I made a soundtrack for this comic. You can find the playlist here on the You Tubes.

Cheers,

Dylan

STAPLE! this weekend, new comics sooooon

STAPLE! this weekend, new comics sooooon published on
Monster Journey trans masculine comics anthology

As you may have gleaned from the title, I’ll be at STAPLE! The Independent Media Expo in Austin, TX this weekend, October 12-13.

I will, of course, have a large assortment of queer & trans comics with me, including copies of the Monster Journey trans masculine comics anthology pictured here, in which I have an exclusive Valley of the Silk Sky short story. I’ll also have lots of art and merch of the Feeping Creatures variety.

So! If you’re in the ATX area this weekend, you should definitely come to this show.

I realize I haven’t posted much here lately, but I have indeed been working on new comics. I just wrapped up a new autobio story I hope to announce soon, and I have several pages of the next chapter of Valley of the Silk Sky penciled. Once I’m back from STAPLE!, my goal is to get that VotSS chapter done.

Anyhow, stay tuned, comics forthcoming …
