Welcome to the world of the Bean.

BIG UPDATE! Bean is going to color- 1 page at a time….

Since I am now working for myself, I am going to go back and start coloring Bean. The reason is as a b/w comic I am finding my possibilities to really share the bean very limited. Most stores want color books over b/w and so I am going back and working through the books to be in full color. This will help things quite a bit. This is a huge undertaking and to make this work I am looking at …. This will allow you to help support this project and keep this incredible tale moving forward. It’s been a labor of love for a long time and I will need a lot of support and help to keep it going.

Once I have enough pages colored and if I haven’t found a publisher yet, I will kickstart the color books as well. This though will not stop the story from progressing. I will continue to update one b/w page a week until I build up my reserves once again to increase that. There will be more info coming this week about Patreon, the bean in coloring and making this dream a reality.

The biggest question on my mind- would you be willing to support bean for $1 or 2 a month (or more) to help me color this story that many of you have enjoyed since 2009? I still will post for free though.

What is Bean about?

Bean is the epic adventure of a dishwasher…. 🙂

Just so you know, I like epics. I am fan of LOTR and Bone (all 1500+ pages). I love the original Quest by the Pini’s and fantasy in general.

So as you start this quest, it will take a bit to get the action going. I am in no hurry.  I update every monday – but that might change as now i am working on bean full time. I am also taking my time to craft this tale and as you read on you will understand why.  I would encourage you to not stop at 20 pages because you have only scratched the surface. Yet don’t fret, there is an ending, that is already written. The fun part will be getting there.

What makes things even more exciting is Bean was nominated for an Eisner in 2011. A huge feat for a b/w webcomic.

Keep Creating, leave a comment or two, I’ll always respond and enjoy the adventure.

I'm looking forward to this, I need a good epic fantasy right now. Love your art too, hoping you share some of your process in your blof somewhere 🙂

It'd be good if there was a link to see the black and white versions of the pages you have colored (sorry if I missed it).

    i have thought about it but it takes a lot of work and i am not a coder, so i have been replacing the original b/w with color as I keep moving forward. There are though b/w books 🙂

      Ok thanks for the info. It would be cool if you could post the black and white underneath each new color page on patreon (going forward). I love the new colors, but I also like seeing how it has changed.

Yes, yes, yes! I have hoped for some time that you would color these, but I didn't know if you would be willing to undertake such a project. This first page looks awesome by the way. Looking forward to seeing more!
