We’re in the middle of packing ourselves up to head down to San Diego Comic Con for the weekend! We’ve got a lot of fun stuff, including an exclusive magnet of Mike and Chihiru in their favorite super hero cosplays~ We’ve also got a couple of new mini prints from JD and we’ll be carrying a small number of our queer-themed badge designs. 

Most excitingly, we will have a very small number (only 25 total!) of pre-release print copies of chapter five of Mahou Shounen FIGHT!, Drip Drip Drop. We’re not quite done with the official cover but these numbered exclusives are bound with a sketch cover and include a drawing from JD of your character of choice! 

So many thanks to Prism Comics for giving us a home to operate out of for Comic Con and for inviting us to participate in some queer themed panels this weekend! You’ll find us on the Transgender Trends in Media Thursday at 5 and LGBT Comics for Young Readers.Friday at 2. Both of these panels are in room 28DE. 

This is going to be an amazing weekend and we hope we can see you in San Diego!

Going to SD Comic Con?

We are! Mahou Shounen Fight is going to San Diego Comic Con! As the map above shows, we’ll be at the Prism Comics booth (2144, 2146, 2148). For anyone who isn’t familiar with Prism Comics, just look for the big gay comics booth behind Sideshow Collectibles. :)

The primary reason I’m making this post however, is because I know a lot of cool people are also gonna be at SDCC this year, but I’m not sure who all is going or where you all are gonna be! And I want to be sure to visit everyone I can while we’re there! So if you’re going, please reblog this with your art/comic and table number/location, so we (and everyone else who sees this!) know where to find you! :D

We’re now taking preorders for the printed version of chapter 4 of Mahou Shounen Fight and things are pretty different this time! We’ll be taking all orders through our web store. There’s a few different options and you do get a special incentive for ordering ahead! We’ll be making bookmarks which come free with all preorders OR you can order the bookmark separately if you just want that! If you want to get all four books, you’ll also get the bookmark AND a set of magnets for $24. After the preorders come to an end, you’ll still get the magnets when you order all four — or you can get the magnets on their own!

We are offering a VERY limited number of sketches for $5 which you can add as another item to your cart if you’d like one to be included in your copy of book #4. If these sell out REALLY fast, we might put some more up. Right now we have the linework completed for the book cover and the bookmark and we’ll keep you posted on tumblr, twitter and facebook as the images start to come together! We’ll be taking preorders until June 29 — just in time for Anime Expo!

Aside from that, we’ve got some good news and some bad news. We’re going to be going on hiatus until at least July 6th while we get the book ready for print, get ready to start chapter 5 AND prepare for Anime Expo and San Diego Comic Con AND try to get all of our commission backlog finished. Summers are always an adventure for us.

The GOOD news is that we are THRILLED to announce that we’ve been invited to exhibit with Prism Comics at San Diego Comic Con! If you’re not familiar with Prism, theyre a non profit organization that is all about LGBT comics and their creators and readers. They offer a yearly grant for queer comic creators, publish an anual guide to LGBT comics AND have a fantastic booth at San Diego Comic Con. We’re ironing out the final details but we’ll keep you updated once we know the location of Prism Comics’ booth — AND we’ll be sure to have a Comic Con exclusive or two for those of you who can make it by!

Thank you all for your patience and your support as we’ve done chapter 4 of MSF over a very very stressful year. We appreciate you so much and look forward to bringing you the next chapter of our silly story!
