So, Yontengu starts next week! Let me tell you more!

Stewart C. Baker (fiction and poetry writer, check him out at Infomancy) is helping me with some website redesign. And thank goodness. I was trying to write the css in crayon, but the data processor kept giving me distinct reprimands. My knuckles are still red from the ruler. It might not be fully redesigned by Tuesday, but it will be int he works.

As was suggested in Tuesday’s comments by @Dave, “Googling Yontengu brought up some hits for “Yon Tengu”, Japanese for “four tengu”, and a tengu is a supernatural being in Japanese mythology/folklore, sorta like a god or possibly a demon. So, I’m thinking it’s going to be about the four elemental spirits or something like that. (Chris, am I right?)” Yes, Dave, exactly.

Don Ahé (who you may remember from his Spacetrawler fill-in a year-and-a-half ago), who is drawing it, described it better than I could: “I asked Christopher Baldwin, a friend and favorite cartoonist of mine if he would be up for writing a comic for me to draw. I envisioned a female Buck Rogers,  a girl Science Hero like Adam Strange, a tough no nonsense fighter in the vein of the Magnus the Robot Fighter. Christopher enthusiastically jumped aboard, and wrote a great story, totally different then what I had envisioned…..and i loved it. Yontengu starts October 14th, at

Ha! Well, I wouldn’t say TOTALLY different. Just my take on it. 😉

  1. Nice!

    I like Don’s work a lot and was said when Road Apples Almanace… well, just went away. Great to see new work of him on a regular basis!

  2. Will there be lions and shotguns ?

  3. Magnus Robot Fighter! I had forgotten. One of my favorites as a kid. Will have to revisit the Mile High City of North Am!

  4. “Eccentric Family” has a fun take on tengu: Eccentric Family at Crunchyroll

  5. Glad you liked Road Apples JohnBijl, a year ago my life got turned upside down and my ability to just write strips was nonexistent. Road apples will return again, but am stretching my art muscles, I have always enjoyed drawing anthromorphic characters, but I thought It was time to draw human characters, and to collaborate with Christopher is just amazing. cant wait for Oct 14th

  6. Oh Dave, no lions, but some sort of loud bangy weapon, yes 🙂
