Hey folks!

My Comics!

My first self-published humour/fantasy comic "Silly Kingdom", written by my brother Shaggy is available as $0.99 digital PDF download and more info can be found here:

Hello, I tried to add you to at least one of my groups because you accepted having at least one thing of yours in my group, but the invitation expired, so I've decided to send a general message to the people who fit this category, since sometimes people just don't notice the invitations. If you want to join in the future, I'll accept you.

I just wanted to let you know that I read your comic "Hello" and it was absolutely adorable! <3

Thank you! :)
I bought yerr book "Silly Kingdom"!
Seeing as I can get lost in the comic here, I'm pretty sure I'll be pleasantly suprised!..
once it arrives.
two weeks or more from now.

Oh an I think I'll watch you from the shadows, just in case I find more gems lying around..
ktshy Mar 18, 2014  Professional Filmographer
Thank you! I hope you enjoy it :)
It arrived a few days ago, and I love it.
I think I haven't ever felt as giddy over a book before as this one when it arrived though xD
Especially when I noticed the hand drawn Alengrimrickshaw on the first page!
(I've never ordered selfpublished from abroad before.. and I sent something special to a friend there once and it ripped out of the envelope :I)

It's really something you two have done good, and I think it has a great deal of heart to it.
So, thank you for making a fun little comic that I'm sure to read again once in a while (:
I love your comics! Please draw more Draco or Hermione. Or do them together!
love the gallery!
