Valley of the Silk Sky: “Medicine; Run” proceeds apace; SDCC approaches

Valley of the Silk Sky: “Medicine; Run” proceeds apace; SDCC approaches published on
Valley of the Silk Sky: Medicine Run

If you’re wondering why things have been quiet here these last few weeks, it’s because I’ve been focusing on posting updates over on the Valley of the Silk Sky website.

You can, for example, read several pages of “Medicine; Run” right now, as I work my way through the weekly serialization of this short story.

You can also buy the minicomic edition if you’re impatient, or if you prefer to read in print. Neat!

Will I ever post this short story to Studio NDR? I don’t know! Maybe. I just feel a bit overwhelmed with maintaining a billion websites and social media accounts, ha ha. For now, it lives in its own little corner of the web.

Meanwhile, SDCC

Monster Journey trans masculine comics anthology

Yes, I’ll be there! Once again you can find me in Small Press, where I will be sharing table L-06 with Stacked Deck Press (publisher of We’re Still Here, in which I have a short story, as well as several queer & trans-themed coloring books in which I have illustrations).

I’ll have a few copies of Monster Journey, the all-trans masc anthology from Pocket Bear Press in which I have an exclusive new Valley of the Silk Sky short story.

If you can’t make it to SDCC, you can snag Monster Journey online in either physical or e-book form.

I’m also working on some Feeping Creatures micro zines, featuring a bunch of artwork you probably haven’t seen before, so keep an eyeball out for those as well.

So yeah, been busy, even if I don’t always manage to post about it here!

We're Still Here trans comics anthology

My current project is my comic for the all-trans We’re Still Here anthology, and you can back the Kickstarter for it even now!

This 300+ page tome is, believe it or not, the first (that we know of) comics anthology dedicated exclusively to trans comics and trans creators. And there are a ton of great folks included: Melanie Gillman, Sophie LaBelle, Sybil Lamb, Ajuan Mance, Annie Mok, L Nichols, Ronnie Richie, Bishakh Som, Scout Tran-Caffee, and tons more.

Added bonus: both of the editors (Jeanne Thornton and Tara Avery) are trans, and the publisher, Stacked Deck Press, is trans-owned and operated. So every penny goes to support trans folks!

I’m doing an autobio piece about my trip last fall to a Japanese trans guy bar. Folks who pledge a dollar or more a month to my Patreon are being treated to work-in-progress images.

So if you wanna peep some process pix, put in a pledge!

And don’t forget to back the Kickstarter and help make this book a reality!

Cheers,

Dylan

Valley of the Silk Sky queer YA sci-fi comic

Valley of the Silk Sky page 41 is here, and it is intent on diagnosing your ailments:

I am currently working on finishing the pencils for chapter 4, which I can hopefully wrap up by the end of the week, and therefore continue to publish the chapter without interruption. Things been busy!

MEANWHILE, you have a chance to acquire even more queer comics. Observe:

ALPHABET queer comics anthology

ALPHABET, the lgbtqai comics anthology, is now up on Kickstarter. I have a new exclusive comic in this book, alongside many other amazing creators. The list includes Ahri Almeida, Elizabeth Beier, Christianne Benedict, Bex, Jennifer Camper, Vi Cao, Tyler Cohen, Howard Cruse, Dave Davenport, Tana Ford, Melanie Gillman, Diego Gomez, Soizick Jaffre, Emeric Kennard, Robert Kirby, Hanna-Pirita Lehkonen, Ed Luce, Steve MacIsaac, Hazel Newlevant, Hanna Oliver, Eric Orner, David Quantic, Carlo Quispe, Sonya Saturday, Mike Sullivan, Dax Tran-Caffee, Josh Trujillo, Kelsey Wroten, and many more!

I mean, dang. IN ADDITION to all that comics goodness, there’s also a coloring book, yes a COLORING BOOK offered as an incentive. The book features a number of different artists illustrating their queer heroes, and I chose to draw Edward Gorey. I have to say, I had way too much fun doing that drawing, which means YOU will have way too much fun coloring it.

So. Get on there and grab yerself some queer comics!

Cheers,

Dylan
