So, as you know, we’ve been hard at work on the next chapter of Tough, Chapter 3: “Brother’s Keeper”, so I wanted to share with you a few preview pages to whet your appetite. Please take a look at the first nine penciled pages below (to which I’ve added my first pass of word balloons) and let me know what you think in the comments!
So, this is cool. I’ve been invited to speak at a panel at the New York City Comic Con, talking about what it’s like to read and enjoy yaoi as a gay guy. Please stop by and say hello!
Popular English-language bara site Baralover mysteriously went down at the end of July. I and many other fans wondered why. Now Kyo the webmaster responds.
A reader on our Facebook Page asked
Hey Alex, I’m curious, when you look for artists, do you go strictly by their portfolio or do you pay for sample panels?
I thought my answer might be useful for others so I’m posting it up here.
So, I just spent the most awesome hour reading through an online webcomic called OGLAF.COM. You should too.
Not without its flaws, this is a sweet and engaging yaoi comic by independent Western creators that delivers laughs and smiles. If you like your guy-on-guy romance to be cute and fun with strong characters who get adorably worked up and deserve to be together, it’s definitely worth the Kindle price of $4.99 and even the $8.00 pre-order for the print book. You won’t be disappointed.
You folks with all your kind words got me so jazzed on the Tough project that I decided to create a T-shirt with my favorite panel from “No Kissing”. Please check it out and let me know what you think!
Hot diggety! Our next free comic, the 35-page second chapter of Tough, “No Kissing”, is finished and ready for download! In this post, I’m again sharing the first 16 full-color pages of the comic and letting you know how to get the entire comic sent to you for free. And this post is also where readers are commenting about what they thought about “No Kissing”. Check it out!
We’re hard at work putting the final touches on the second chapter of our High School gay romance Tough, “No Kissing.” And the first thing I have to share is another wonderful painted cover by kick-ass artist Winona Nelson!

Here’s some Yaoi Anime vids from YouTube to brighten your Valentine’s Day!
Alex brings a yummy chocolate cake to a manga BBQ and leaves with a bag full of yaoi to review. Read on to find out whether Kumiko Suekane’s “world without girls” fantasy Once Upon A Glashma or Lily Hoshino’s virgin-sacrificing Chocolate Surprise are worth dipping your chips into.
Likable, non-clichÃ© characters with real depth, great art and an exceptionally solid and credible love story make for a great read. Despite a somewhat weaker, more conventional B-story, this book is definitely worth your $12.95.
I have something very exciting to show you. As I’ve mentioned “Tough” is the first chapter in a two volume, seven chapter graphic novel, Tough (it gets its title from this first chapter). Well, our artist Winona Nelson has just finished painting the cover art for the book and here it is!
A lot of folks I showed this video to — both straight and gay — found it to be perfect to show to their friends who don’t quite “get it”. It certainly helps bring home the subtler forms of prejudice and ignorance that are hard for all of us to shake. Since cool people come to this blog, I decided it was worth sharing here. And let’s face it – he’s a cutie.
