A Yaoi Flavored Short Film

All right — it’s just two cute guys messing around in a bed in a short by an independent film director whose work I’ve enjoyed, but I thought I’d share. 😉 (Very, very Not Safe For Work, but you knew that, right?)

Yaoi 911™ in Prism Guide 2008

So late last year, I was chatting with my buddy and colleague, Tommy Roddy — he’s the creator of Pride High, a series of comics about gay teen superheroes in high school — and he turned me on to this guide that comes out once a year which offers readers excerpts from a bunch of gay comics. It’s created by the folks at Prism Comics and serves as a kind of a who’s who and what’s what for the gays in both mainstream and independent Western comics.

Anyway, I reached out to them, one thing led to another and now there’s an excerpt from “A Shot in the Dark” in the current issue!

Yaoi Review: Say Please by Kano Miyamoto

I kept on reading it, straight-through. That says something. But this book shows more promise than actual skill. The art is competent and the author’s interest in complex relationships might pay dividends in future works but, despite the more ambitious material, overall the experience of this book feels like the same-old, same-old. From what I understand, this is not the strongest of Miyamoto-sensei’s works. There’s enough here for me to be willing to give another of her books a try, but I really can’t recommend you putting down hard earned cash for it.

Free Yaoi Comic For Registered Users

So let me tell you, we’ve been awful busy lately putting together the book — super busy, crazy busy, so busy, in fact, that I haven’t had a chance to mention yet that the first story in the book. “A Shot in the Dark,” is completely finished and ready for public consumption. Well, all that is going to change right now. I’ll be posting its final pages up here (like I’ve done with its in-production pages ) sometime soon, but in the meantime, I’d like to give out a preview PDF of this complete full-color yaoi comic to those readers who’ve registered their email address with this blog. Just as a special treat. 🙂

Yaoi Art: Guys In Their Underwear! (“Artifice” Character Designs)

Hey, everyone! 🙂 The first book of the Yaoi 911™ action-yaoi series (which I’m pretty sure I’m going to call “Firsts”) is well under way. And the first story in the book — “A Shot in the Dark,” which you’ve been watching us create on this blog — is finally completely colored and lettered and you can now download the entire comic for free. But there are, of course, more stories in this graphic novel and I’d like to begin previewing them here as well, starting with “Artifice,” a comic with art created from start to finish by “A Shot in the Dark” inker and colorist Winona Nelson.

Yaoi Review: Same Cell Organism by Sumomo Yumeka

It’s a sweet book with sweet wish-fulfillment stories that will speak to those of us who pine to be in a relationship for the first time (or are, at least, nostalgic for that experience.) For the rest of us, there’s some fine dialogue and characterization with pretty art, but not much meaty to sink our teeth into. Buy it for that friend of yours who’s still on the outside looking in — she’ll thank you for it.
