What’s happening in Little Guardians land…
We just got back from Wizard World Philadelphia where much fun was had!
We just recorded a podcast with the good folks from the Webcomic Alliance to recap our adventures in Philly. We’ll let you know when that episode goes live.
Our Patrons will be joining us tomorrow (May 16th) for a Patron-only live stream party to celebrate Little Guardians hiring a colorist (thanks to our Patrons).
Everything’s coming up Millhouse!
We have some new events to announce!

Let’s do it!
I just wanted to update you all on our pretty eventful weekend. As I was gathering my gear to go exhibit at Wizard World Indianapolis my laptop thought it would be a great time to play dead. Absolutely dead. Dark. Cold. Lifeless.
Thus ensued a day and a half of panic and worry all the while I put on a brave face spreading the word of Little Guardians to the wonderful convention attendees.
Finally, last night after I got out of the show, we were able to make it to a computer place to have a tech guy diagnose my poor laptop. Where according to the rules of situational comedy, suddenly my laptop is fine and it’s as if nothing was wrong at all. Great?!
So that’s the good news. Also we’re having a pretty great first convention of the season as well. BUT I lost my Friday and Saturday comic-drawing time during the laptop false alarm. So that means…
***** Page 45 will post Monday the 23rd ***** instead of Monday the 16th.
I’m just happy to still have my laptop. All the files were backed up and okay but it was severely disorienting to not be able to sit down and work away at the comic like I usually do. Thank you for supporting us and for your understanding. We’ll be back to regular updates on the 23rd.
I’m happy to announce the birth of our second child, Elaine Harper Cho! She came into the world January 20, 2015 at 12:34 AM. Mommy and baby are at home and doing well. Nina is excited to be a big sister, though I think she expected the baby to do more once we got her home. She had toys ready for her to play with, but unfortunately newborns are pretty much cute potatoes that eat, sleep and poop on a two hour cycle.
As a writer, people are always curious what I’m reading. Here are a few reading recommendations from books I’ve finished recently.
To Rise Again at a Decent Hour by Joshua Ferris. I’ve always been a fan of his books because this guy can make anything sound interesting. He could write a book about grass growing, and it would be a gripping and insightful read.
Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage by Haruki Murakami. This is a Japanese writer I’ve been reading quite a bit of lately. Many of his books have a very surreal quality about them, think Being John Malkovich or Spirited Away, but his latest novel is much more grounded in reality and a fun read.
We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves by Karen Joy Fowler. This book is about a family that adopts a monkey for a short time as a psychology experiment and how it affects the family dynamic, most notably the children who think of her as the sister they lost.
As 2015 gets started, take a moment to look at the conventions we’ll be attending this year listed on the left hand side of the web site. Hope to see you there.

With your help we’re looking to fund a colorist for Little Guardians. Lee’s doing a great job adding extra content for patrons, sneak previews of pages in progress, and hosting live streams while he draws.
