For the French visitors, you can preview Éditions Akileos’ excellent translations of my earlier books WHITEOUT and WHITEOUT:Melt at digiBiDi. If you want to buy paper copies of the French versions, you’ll also find links.
For the readers coming from slashdot.jp: Hi! If you’d like to share our comic on Japanese websites or message boards, please do! It’s very cool to think of the manga audience reading our story.
I’m trying to get up to speed with digital comics formats, so I’m putting this up as a test. Flytrap #1 is a short comics story that my wife wrote and I drew. Is it set up correctly for your readers? http://stevelieber.com/flytrap_issue01.cbz EDIT: I’ve used Zipcleaner to strip out the hidden Mac files. Here’s a new version:
I can’t begin to say how thrilled we are with the response we’ve been enjoying. We’ve got more books on order from Image, and they should be here next week. As soon as we get them, we’ll start signing, sketching and shipping!
It’s come to this. I’ve uploaded a partial archive of the 4chan bootleg and discussion thread. Read it here..) I think there’s gonna be a full archive at 4chanarchive.org, and I’ll link to that when I’ve got a URL.
Also, we’ve heard from a bunch of readers who don’t want another book in the house but still want to kick in a donation. So, here’s a paypal button. The suggested donation is $5.00, but whatever you can afford is fine.
I’ll have that those jpeg files for everyone really soon.The CBR files are up! Sorry for the delay. All this attention came as a huge surprise, and I’ve still got all my freelance commitments. It’s been crazy, but this (as Marlo Stanfield said on The Wire,) is “one of them good problems.”
