For the new people following my blog—hello, welcome! :) My name is Svetlana Chmakova, I’m a manga/comics creator working mostly in North America, though my books have been published in various other corners of the world. The following is a bunch of my own personal thoughts and experiences on…

sparklermonthly:

Today is the final release for Issue #010 of Sparkler Monthly! 
For subscribers, we have the end of our short comic Dinner Ditz by Alexis Cooke! This josei-inspired foodie love story is charming and sweet, and the art is so quirky and emotive—our whole editorial staff are big fans, so we hope you check it out! Read Chapter 1 (free to read for everyone) and Chapter 2 (for subscribers only until next week).
(We did a limited print run of this comic for TCAF several weeks ago, and we’ve put the leftover copies in the Sparkler Shop for purchase. We call it a minicomic, but at over 50 pages, it’s a pretty substantial book!)

Also, Tokyo Demons: Book 2’s dark, terrifying, Lianne-what-are-you-doing-to-us finale ran last week, and now it’s out from behind the paywall—free to read forever! That means all chapters of Book 1 and Book 2 are out and free. You can lose your weekend reading the whole thing!

And Awake: Chapter 8 is up on the site and on Bandcamp, free to stream. The crew members finds Jamilah’s video key and have successive breakdowns. Did you know the back chapters of that series are free to stream, too? Lose your weekend listening to the whole thing!
Have a great, unproductive weekend.

It’s the end of Dinner Ditz (probably) •;◊•)/ It was so great working with the Sparkler gals and working on the comic in general! <3
If you read Dinner Ditz, feel free to give me some feedback here!

This will be the last update for a while on SUB-.  It’s been almost  years since I started planning the project and laying everything out.  It’s so nice to finally be done with the first chapter.  A little sad, but nice.I’m going to take this next month to plan and write up the script for chapter 2 and decide if I’m going to do batch updates or a page a week.  So this will be the end for a bit //tears//. But to tied you over, you can download the hi-res pages off Gumroad.  The download includes the print covers that aren’t posted online, some sketches that aren’t posted anywhere online (a few that have), and hi-res character sheets.  It doesn’t cost anything to download, but it has the option too (incase your feeling generous, tee hee).This is goodnight for now, sweat SUB-, but not good-bye!LOVEA.a

With all the traveling I’ve done in the last 3 days, I was a little bit worried about posting this on time, but I made it!!! We finally get to have some Klinger and Belakane interactions in the upcoming pages!  We’re almost done with Chapter one, only four or five more pages :-&gt;&#160;!!!
