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!

Cheers,

Dylan

Trans Tokyo: A Trek to Two’s Cabin – page 2

Trans Tokyo: A Trek to Two’s Cabin – page 2 published on
Trans Tokyo: A Trek to Two's Cabin

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

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,

Ace Pilot page 2 is here and is read for your eyeballs!

The autobio saga continues to unfold, as Halloween costumes and Yoda are deployed (but not Halloween costumes of Yoda, strangely enough).

To see all the pages that have been posted so far, click ye here.

Queer Words

But what’s all this about a podcast?

So yeah, turns out I was interviewed by Queer Words, a podcast that features authors of the LGBTQIA variety, and you can listen to that very podcast now. I’m pretty sure I said some things about queer comics.

Valley of the Silk Sky news

Finally, I have finished coloring the remastered version of “Medicine; Run,” which I still fully intend to debut at DiNK in a couple of weeks.

“Oh, wow, so it’s finished, eh?”

LOL, no. I still have to clean up the scans, reletter, format for minicomic, and print. Oh, and draw the cover. BUT, the bulk of the work is done.

So. Still whittling away, but soon. SOON.

Cheers,

Dylan

Ace Pilot commences!

Ace Pilot queer asexual trans autobio comic

As mentioned last week, I’ll be running a webcomic edition of my story Ace Pilot, which was originally published in the Secret Loves of Geeks anthology from Dark Horse.

Ace Pilot is a short autobio comic examining the intersections of queer, asexual, and trans identity, as told through a nerdy obsession with Star Wars. 

You can read the first page here on Studio NDR, and here on Patreon.

Ordinarily I’d also be uploading these pages to Tumblr as well, but since this is such a short piece (5 whole pages), I’m going to hold off on publishing them individually. I’ll do a single post with the whole story once it’s wrapped.

Cheers,

Dylan

More autobio funs, and what’s in store for 2019

More autobio funs, and what’s in store for 2019 published on

Draw Out the Vote - Colorado

Continuing with my efforts to add comics to my website that were originally published elsewhere, here’s the piece I originally created for the 2018 Draw Out the Vote project from Oni Press. Cartoonists from each of the 50 states discussed political issues relevant to their state, and why voting is an important part of addressing those issues. My comic focused on LGBT issues in Colorado.

Anyhow, this is now posted to the here in the Autobio Comics section of good ol’ Studio NDR.

But what of 2019, you ask?

I made a public Patreon post going into some detail regarding my comic makin’ plans for this year.

The TL;DR: version is more Valley of the Silk Sky, including a new minicomic, a new issue of QAT Person, and further pun horrors with Taxonomically Unbound.

Anyway, I seem to be having yet more website issues, so I guess I’ll drop everything and go troubleshoot that now. Cool!

New Nibbles and other news

New Nibbles and other news published on

Dylan Edwards - The Nib - Trans Visibility

This is not actually a NEW new comic, just one I realized I had forgotten to post here on the ol’ home site. It was originally published by The Nib way back in June of 2018 as part of their Response feature on transgender stuffs.

You can read all the Response comics here on The Nib’s site, or you can read just my comic here on Studio NDR.

As for t’other news:

I had meant to have enough Taxonomically Unbound comics done to last through the end of the year. That didn’t quite happen, on account of various things exploded (my creaky old version of Photoshop, my website, my other website), and I have spent much of this month Dealing With Trying to Get Basic Things Working Again instead of making new art.

One of my temporary solutions to the Photoshop explosion problem was to download Clip Studio Paint, a graphics program that’s more specifically designed for comics creation. I have not actually had time to learn how to use it due to the various website explosions, but one of my goals for the coming weeks is to at least dip into the basics. Probably gonna make some new Taxo Unbos as part of my practice efforts.

I’m also working on a bunch of Valley of the Silk Sky stuff, about which I shall go into more detail next week as a sort of What to Expect in 2019 post. SO. Stay tooned!

Cheers,

Dylan
