I really enjoy your comic but what in the world is up with Martha's recipe? It would not hold together or have decent texture if you had removed the fat (butter) out and replaced it with corn syrup. And triple the sugar? Compared to what? Pie crust dough? You're a wonderful artist. I like all of SMMA so far, except the last pannel on this comic. You must have done this on purpose to see how many people would gripe to you about this. Right?
I fell in love with your comic last spring. I remember you mentioned you were planning on putting S.M.A. collected comics out in a book form... yes? Is that still a possibility?
Yes! There will be a book of collected MutantMagic strips. But not for a while. Why? Because first I have to make another book. It’s a graphic novel that I’m doing with my cousin Mariko, with whom I did SKIM. The new book is called Awago Beach Babies. It’s nothing like this webcomic, but here’s a picture anyway:
[Awago will be out in Spring 2014. More info’s here.]
So yes, I am working on this other book ‘round the clock and publishing schedules dictate that there’s gotta be some time between. Which is sensical. Also, I want to do more strips that will appear exclusively in the book so it’ll be extra juicy.
Anyway, there will be some SMMA book news soonish. In the meantime, I’m making a special minicomic for MoCCA. Come see me there, if you’re around!
