In celebration of nothing in particular, I’ve created three new shirts that are now available for purchase. Please be warned, Mysoti takes a while to ship things so if you’re planning on getting any one of these as a gift, order at least a month ahead of time. And they now offer XL and XXL sizes which I know some of you have been asking about. So without further ado, let’s take a look at the new gear!
This is something special for all you Doctor Who fans out there. You know those Daleks have a soft spot for the UK.
Next up is a classic quote from this strip from April. It’s now a better known fact that powers of awesome are best transmitted through the eating of the corpse.
Finally, a warning to all those who fawn those cute little pandas at the zoo. Yes. They are cute. They are also bears. And they will fuck you up.
So there you go, three new fun things to cover your body with! And if you do order, please send action photos, especially if you’re eating someone else to get their powers.

Artist Carly Monardo is collecting a group of webcomic artists together to donate pieces for a charity auction, Web-Comics Auction For The Gulf Coast. The auction will launch in July.
I am participating and would like to get some input from you all. What kind of piece from me would you be willing to bid on? I’m going to be doing some kind of ink illustration on bristol so you’ll get an original piece from me, but I’d like some input. I do have a two-page homoerotic short comic starring Cyclops and Logan that I’ve been kicking around in my head meats, but I’m not sure anyone would want that or if that would be appropriate for a charity auction. So if you all have any ideas, please send them my way. If enough people ask for the same thing, that’s what I’ll do. I’ll take suggestions until next Wednesday, June 23 and then document the process with some video (I hope) and photos.

Some of you may or may not know this already, but before I launched Yellow Peril, I set up a podcast to sort of track the development of the strip. I didn’t widely publicize it or anything, but I thought it would be nice to have some sort of record of what I did to launch the thing. I’ve been recording on and off depending on how busy the week is. You can check out the archived shows at that page and see some sketches and other random stuff.
At the end of April, I asked for some reader questions on the fanpage that I would answer on the cast and got a pretty decent response so I’m doing it again. Meant to do it at the end of May but things got away from me. So, if there are any questions you’d like to know about Yellow Peril or me or whatever, ask away and I’ll record my answers sometime early next week.
Oh, and here’s a link for the previous reader questions cast.

I’ve reformatted the online store and I’m happy to announce our first two products! First up, Pandoom!
A baby panda is born in the Happy Bamboo Grove. It is a time for joyous celebration. But can happiness last in a world that has forgotten nature’s true wonders?
Pandoom is my first ever mini comic about . I’m working on getting print versions ready for this year’s SPX, but if you can’t wait that long or can’t make the show, I’m selling a high resolution PDF version that you can purchase for $1.00 at the store.
If you purchase a digital copy and you’d like to get a copy of the print version, bring along your digital device to SPX with the thing loaded (or just tell me what happens on page 9 of the PDF) and I’ll sell you a print copy for $1.00 (normally $2.00). Along with the print version, you’ll also receive a Daruma inspired button while supplies last.
Next up, Daruma papercraft!
Some of you may have wondered, “Where in the world can I get a cutie Daruma doll just like the one YP uses for navigation?” Well, wonder no longer! Now you can create your very own YP Daruma doll papercraft! Just download the two patter files, print them out, cut out, and assemble with some glue. Printed out on 8.5″x11″ standard printer paper, you assembled papercraft will stand about 4″ tall. Then all you gotta do is make a wish, color in one eye, and when your wish is fulfilled, color in the other eye! The best part, it’s totally FREE! So if you can’t spare $1.00 for a super cute mini comic, get yourself a Daruma papercraft and make your wishes come true.
And please send me lots of photos of your assembled Daruma. I want to see Daruma all over the world!
