Yaoicon, Lettera, and the TDdaki!

Tokyo Demons dakimakura: SachiFor those of you coming to YaoiCon this weekend, come see the Sparkler table run by comics editor Lillian! She’ll have a ton of our paperbacks (including all three volumes of Off*Beat), free postcards, merch (including the new Knights-Errant keychains), and maybe a surprise or two. :3 And speaking of stuff you can get this weekend…the Tokyo Demons dakimakura is now officially on sale! This was a goal of our Membership Drive and was voted on by our readers – thank you so much for making this ridiculous product a reality!

Lettera_adv2In other news, we’re thrilled to announce that Lêttera (by Studio Kôsen, creators of Windrose) returned this week from its short hiatus! This sexy fantasy series is completely free to read right now, including the most recent pages. Things are really starting to heat up in the newest chapter, so what are you waiting for? Load up on Kôsen comics and have a lovely weekend!



Year 3 begins next week!

Thanks to all of you, our Kickstarter was a success, and we’re barreling into a third year! Yaaaaaaaay! \^o^/ Check out the awesome Dead Endings “thank you” graphic from Irene Flores!

Year 3 will begin with Issue 25, and we’re already deep in production–it’s another GIANT issue and we can’t wait to show you guys. We’ll release it sometime next week, once our Kickstarter supporters have been integrated into the site and we’re ready to start this year with a bang!
