I’ve noticed that my world here has been a little quiet. I am trying to fix that.There is just a lot to do and I am trying to stay very focused on bean. In fact I have two pages of book 9 done. I am actually tackling 9 different than 8. In 8 I drew all the pencils first than I went back to ink everything. I really didn’t like that, so I am going to pencil- than ink – than start the next page. This should help me stay a little more focused.

I am also looking at wrapping books 1 through 4 (or 5) into a big book. I am starting to look at quotes and get a feel for what the page count will end up being. These thick books will be in b/w first. Color is so expensive. Yet I promise when this story is all done, I will colorize it.

Also I am looking at cleaning up things around here…. any suggestions on things you would like to see.

well back to the grind. Oh and hopefully I will have the next books out in pdf very soon.

The robed goblin looks like a cat with a pony tail to me. Either way, looks cool

I love the new format! All of a sudden, the whole panel fits in my screen!

Ooh there's a ninja-assassin goblin if ever I've seen one! 😀

You remind me of a rustic (I mean that as the greatest possible compliment) Shirow at times like this, the way every character, no matter how small, seems hugely unique and interesting (I always did wonder on the lives of the background characters in Appleseed).

Regarding the site, I was thinking, ever thought of holding a coloring competition? A panel like this would be ideal, if nothing else it would be really cool to see what colours/shades/atmospheres others picture in their minds when faced with such powerful line work.

Also, I keep thinking the Goblin in the lower left hand corner is called Gable. THAT is the name I keep coming up with when I look at him! O_O Clearly, there are good reasons I don’t write comics. 😛

    what a nice compliment – thanks

    coloring contest…. hmmm maybe…. we can do something like that. Yet it will be so unrelated to bean- I want it to be fun and maybe we can give away a prize or two?

    As for Gable…. hmmmm why not?

Great dynamics here. I can't help but wonder who that brutal looking goblin at the top is,

Your comic is much better than most of the ones in the "Top 100 Comics".. A real gem. I hope more find your site and experience your story. Thank you for sharing your gift with us.

This panel is great – your best one in a while, in my opinion. Nicely done!
