Late Night Call

Wasn’t sure I was ready to write this particular arc. I’m hoping not to bash you over the head in that old sitcom “on a very special episode…” kind of way. In the words of RuPaul, I will try my best to not “fuck it up.”

Readers with Slingshots

Welcome all of you who are reading this for the first time! Danielle Corsetto was gracious enough to run my guest strip for her Girls With Slingshots. Thank you for stopping by.

Yellow Peril is an Asian American office romance comedy. It’s strip format, unlike by big comic book page guest strip. It’s also black and white colored with ink wash, also unlike my guest strip. Whenever I get the chance to do a guest strip, I like to challenge myself artistically and stretch out a bit. I update Monday, Wednesday, and Friday and I blog most days in between.

Today, we start a brand new story arc which may not entirely make sense unless you know the gang. Fortunately, we’ve got a handy dandy cast page so you can meet the characters and an archive that’s broken down by storyline listed in chronological order.

Thanks again for stopping by. And thank you, Danielle, for letting me squat for a day.

    Nice guest strip, Jamie! I saw the lettering and thought, “This looks familiar…” Then I saw Hazel’s facial expression in panel four and immediately knew it was your art. Awesome stuff!

  • Nick

    Lots of 503 errors. Are there TOO many readers with slingshots? Poor server.

    Looks like a really fun story so far- I’m going to add it to my regular rotation!

  • Quickning

    YP is awesome as always! Your guest strip for GwS is hysterical!  Stay Epic!

    I just came over from GWS and read the archives. Wow… I’m totally in love with this comic and your style.

    Vatican Cameos! x] Also, I like the guest strip (as well as GWS) and look forward to the new arc~

  • Kelsey

    VATICAN CAMEOS!!!! That made me smile more than it should.

    Haha, awesome! I often wonder if I have a recognizable style. It’s nice to hear that I do!

    I shall do my best!

    Someday, we will learn the truth between those two!!!

  • Kira Foster

    Thanks for the warm welcome! I found you through GWS and spent most of my morning reading. I’m all caught up and bookmarked! :) 

  • http://ypcomic.com Jamie Noguchi

    Thanks for stopping by! I’m glad the server held up long enough for a proper archive dive :)

  • Guest

    This is the first time the comic hasn’t show up on  my browser…. Anything wrong with the setup or is it my computer?

  • http://ypcomic.com Jamie Noguchi

    The site is getting a HUGE traffic load. Refresh it a few times and it should be okay.

  • Kristin

    Fun tip: Train your friends to respond to secret code by yelling out “Vatican cameos!” and then throwing stuff at them. Some day, it may save their lives.

  • Bodez

    another one from GWS here, that’s why I always always read every note that comes with the comics I read, you guys always plug each other.

    Also, by doing a bit of reading I noticed that you did Erfworld, so this arc is really familiar for me, in a sad kinda of way. Wish you best in the future, I like what you are doing for comics and culture!

  • http://ypcomic.com Jamie Noguchi

    LOL!

  • http://ypcomic.com Jamie Noguchi

    Oh, thank you. I was the artist for Book 1 of Erf. Xin is the current artist and I love where she’s taken the visuals.

  • zomgenius

    I’m yet another reader from GWS! :3 I just got all caught up, and I love the comic. :D I’ll definitely be a regular reader from here on out!

  • http://ypcomic.com Jamie Noguchi

    Thank you for doing the archive dive, especially with all the server freakings outs!

  • http://twitter.com/anne_athema World Rocker

    lol I came from GWS this morning. Spent the entire day (between finals) reading from start to finish! LOOOOVE IT

  • Mattshelly56

    Just came over from slingshots. Read the whole thing this evening love it adding it to my list from here on out.

  • zomgenius

    It was well worth it!! Your art is fantastic, especially all the different expressions and reactions. Those are some of my favorite parts about any comic.

  • Tellusora

    Did the exact same thing as Matt. Did an archive binge and now you’re one of my favourite webcomics. Definitely one of the funniest!

  • http://twitter.com/catfoodstudios Junk

    Oh, that explains the familiarity with the art :)

  • http://ypcomic.com Jamie Noguchi

    Thank you for slogging through, especially with all the sever wangings.

  • http://ypcomic.com Jamie Noguchi

    Thanks!

  • http://ypcomic.com Jamie Noguchi

  • toag

    So glad more people are reading this (is is e-awesome)

    waiting for Kane’s song.  i bet 5 quid that says it starts with
    “pickit up, pickit up pickit up!!!”

  • http://ypcomic.com Jamie Noguchi

    I’ve already started writing some really horrible horrible lyrics to the thing. I might actually have to record something horrible to go up with the comics when it gets to that point.

  • http://ypcomic.com Jamie Noguchi

    Been meaning to get to him for a bit. Although, this one is going to be a bit on the heavy side.

  • Richard_D

    Another wanderer from GWS.  Read through the entire archive (as fast as the server would allow- yay more traffic for you!) I’m really liking where this is going and your art style is gorgeous.  Definitely gonna be a regular from now on.

  • Sturmskald

    Hello!  Came by from GWS- and stayed up entirely too late reading the comic.  I also commute to work via the metro, so your metro strips really stuck a chord with me…a terrible, smelly, cramped, and sticky chord.  So, um, thank you?  I’m definitely loving the comic!

  • The_Heart_Shaped_Glasses

    Loved the guest comic you did for GWS! Wandered over here (like a few others) and obsessively read the whole comic as fast as I could. Awesomeness!

  • http://ypcomic.com Jamie Noguchi

    Thank you!

  • http://ypcomic.com Jamie Noguchi

    Haha, who needs sleep when there are COMICS!!!

  • http://ypcomic.com Jamie Noguchi

    Thank you!

  • Kira Foster

    It had its issues, but I was determined to finish it! Officially in love with this comic!

  • Guest

    I love it when web comics have guest artists.  Gives me new material to read and catch up on.

  • Drew

    Just finished your comic after the GWS strip. Awesome comic you have here! Workplace humor, good people, and porn. Sounds like my kinda gig. ;)

  • http://ypcomic.com Jamie Noguchi

    Yes indeedy! I think the porn part is the best.

  • http://ypcomic.com Jamie Noguchi

    Thanks for checking YP out!

    Pleasant surprise :)
