PRINCESS WHO SAVED HER FRIENDS now available for pre-order on Backerkit!

If you missed the Kickstarter campaign for the PRINCESS WHO SAVED HER FRIENDS children’s book, have no fear! You can now pre-order the book at Backerkit!

Check it out!

The book is written by Greg Pak and Jonathan Coulton with art by Takeshi Miyazawa, colors by Jessica Kholinne, and letters by Simon Bowland.

The original PRINCESS WHO SAVED HERSELF book celebrated a scrappy kid who stuck up for herself but was always able to open the circle and find reconciliation with the monsters and witch she came into conflict with. We absolutely love that story of determination, bravery, and understanding.

But what happens next, when our heroine discovers that the witch she befriended miiiiight not be such a great friend after all?

THE PRINCESS WHO SAVED HER FRIENDS tackles the kind of tricky personal conflict that kids — and adults — grapple with every day in the real world.

Sekai No Owari music video based on the Pak/Miyazawa Marvel comic book!

Thrilled to report that the amazing Japanese band Sekai No Owari has made a music video based on the comic book that Takeshi Miyazawa and I made for them!

You can see the first minute or so of the video at the link above — if you subscribe to YouTube Premium, you can see the whole thing.

I’m pretty thrilled with this — love Sekai No Owari’s music, love Tak’s art, and I’m thrilled with how this video turned out. Might be the best “motion comic” style animation I’ve seen.
