With the mess that's become of Tokyopop I've been trying to get them to let me take King city 2 to another publisher. I won't know what the plan is for another month or so.
There's about 30 pages left to draw of the 160something page book.
The French publisher Bragelonne are stil going to be translating it and printing it over there.
So yeah for now I'm going to finish it for the French edition.
Paris, je t'aime.

This week I'm working on the next Multiple warheads and not trying to stress about shit.
I'm up at my ladies cabin with my pal David visiting from Japan eating salmon omlets living the good life.

There's a dog out here that refuses to fetch anything but barnacle covered rocks. Any perfectly good stick or ball gets a cold nose turned up at it.

James Stokoe's and Muggles Z were just visiting as well. I'm such a hermitt and it's so good to see my people. James was working on an awesome sex farm sex bear scene for his next Won Ton book and Marley had some amazing wich comic pages--all dry brush and awesome.
The moment we all huddled around the computer and watched a Take that video with James explaining his names for all the dance moves. "electric hissy fit"
was beautifull and perfect. The shit i'll tell my grandkids about.

Aight I'm off to draw.
Take that!

Don't give up! You have a fanbase patiently waiting for King City 2-- we support you Brandon! Best of luck finding a competent publisher for the second volume. :D
royalboiler Featured By Owner Jun 28, 2008
That's good to hear.
Regardless of the fate of King city I'll alway have new comics out.
But yeah, hopefully.

F Tokyopop, King City 2 must be given to the masses. Without King City 2, there could be catastrophic events.

Aww geez! Bring it here. Bring it to Image!!!! So I can get my grubby intern-y hands on it.

"electric hissy fit"? sounds amazing! does he also know the "electro sausage"? very simple and effective - and you might only distract people with its name, but it´s all eye-poppy :thumbsup:

King City 2 makes me all moist in my ladyparts. And I didn't even know I HAD ladyparts. Best of luck on the move from TP.

Mneh, if it takes too long in english I'll just get it in french. Hooray for speaking multiple languages!

Speaking of which, I was meaning to learn spanish this summer. I ought to start soon.

I found that Kelly Green book you mentioned in LJ. Turns out you can order the first 3 from Amazon. They're pretty cheap, too; only a couple bucks each. Haven't read book 1 yet; been busy trying to finish Dune.

Hopefully you can find a new publisher for King City 2. I'm sure Larry at AiT/Planet LAR will print it if he can, or some other respectable publisher.

harveyjames Featured By Owner Jun 24, 2008
Yeah, the best of luck finding a new publisher. You're too good for those guys!

I have no doubt you'll find one sooner or later.
royalboiler Featured By Owner Jun 24, 2008
Thanks sir,
The only problem is TP letting me take it elsewhere.
I got all fingers and toes crossed.
I'd cross my eyes if i didnt have to draw.

Also I really like those new comics you put up.
harveyjames Featured By Owner Jun 25, 2008

everyone who knows daph is really excited about those. I think it could run and run! I'd like to read a big book of daph stories.

Dude I just saw your Teen back cover at some log cabin mini mart out here.
You need to visit this west coast soon.
We went out in boats today, I thought of water baby shark attacks.

royalboiler Featured By Owner Jun 24, 2008
Shit, the Pizza contest is over or on hold or something.
But this way I'll have new books out sooner.
Yeah, I gotta schedule another Pizza contest.

I have to read Multiple Warheads. My girl has been giving me shit about not reading it since I finished Sputz haha She loved it!

Best of luck sorting out the King City thing man, sounds like you would have had it out before Corey's Double Z haha

Good luck on the TP issue.

bonus - to be able to relax and be around good friends when work shit is going on. I think that's the way life SHOULD work. When something shitty is going on and out of your control, just say screw it, and go spend time with your lady and your buds - like it isn't going on at all. Then when the ball is back in your court again you can say - "hey I just got laid and I've got peeps on my side - I can handle this, no prob"

Unfortunately, I live in Detroit - an alternate dimension where the basic laws of life are turned inside out. (Kwame Kilpatrick, anyone?)

Good luck with the TPop thing, sounds like they're being pretty cool about it, so here's hoping.

Is the French thing via Tpop too, or completely seperate? That's cool.

There's always a home at SRG for any of your stuff ;)

Sounds like you have an little R&R to combat the current bullshit that's going on. Goodluck on finding another publisher for your book. It'd be a damn shame not to see it happen after so many of us have been looking forward to it and all.
