I run the show.
Yes indeed, page 96 is now ready to be placed inside your eyeballs. Read it in one of these fine locations:
If you can’t remember what the heck was going on with this story and would like to have a refresher, you can read all the pages so far (or choose a specific chapter) either here on Studio NDR or here on the Valley of the Silk Sky website.
If you prefer offline reading and would like a book collection, there are both digital and print volumes available, about which ye may learn more here.
For what it’s worth, I plan to update the VotSS website first with new pages, and then update here on Studio NDR when I get to it. So if you are desperate to read new pages at the earliest possible moment, bear that in mind. (And if you really, REALLY want to read at the earliest possible moment, might I remind you that $1+ Patrons get access to new pages three days earlier than the internet at large. Cough, ahem, just so you know.)
Okay? Okay! See you again next week for MORE COMICS.
The exciting tale of my journey to a trans bar is Tokyo is now complete! Page 6 is to be found here on Studio NDR and here on Patreon.
If you’re looking to read the whole thing in one swell foop, here is the link for you.
I’ll also be posting the whole story to Tumblr soon, but not right at this second. Once it’s up, I’ll post a link here.
As for what’s next on the comics docket, Valley of the Silk Sky: The Long Run Chapter 11 is finished and ready to go. I’ll start posting pages for public consumption on January 16, 2020. Patrons who pledge $1 or more per month will, as is the custom, get early access to pages, so for those folks it’ll start on January 13.
See you then!
The penultimate page of our parable may now be peeped! Peruse here on Studio NDR, or here on Patreon.
Tune in next week for the EXCITING CONCLUSION.
Speaking of exciting conclusions, the Kickstarter for The Nib’s Be Gay Do Comics anthology has wrapped! The project has funded quite handily, so soon you’ll be able to get your mitts on this fine book. As a reminder, I’ll have 8 pages of comics in there, alongside a great many other excellent cartoonists. If you missed out on the Kickstarter, I’m sure The Nib will have extra copies to sell retail, so keep an eye on their announcements.
Finally, I’ve finished coloring Valley of the Silk Sky: The Long Run chapter 11, and am in the final stages of cleaning up the scans and lettering the pages. So I’m on track to commence publishing the next installment on January 16, 2020. Brace yourselves!
Yes indeed, the saga of my visit to a Japanese trans bar proceeds apace. In this week’s installment, we encounter some of Google Translate’s limitations around trans terminology.
You can read the new page here on Studio NDR, or here on Patreon.
The trans guy magazine referenced in the first panel was published by Grammy Tokyo, a queer/trans dance party for whom Masaki is a DJ. They run events a couple of times a year, so if you’re planning a trip and want to go clubbing, keep an eye on their calendar. I wasn’t there at the right time to attend one of their events, but perhaps you could be!

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?
