Know, o curious reader, that beside your very feet lies an animal kingdom of wonder, where feuding rodent clans face off within hollow logs, and mundane creek beds house ancient serpent temples. This world that resides outside the periphery of our human senses boast legends of elder animal spirits and foul demons from beyond. One such tale speaks of a legendary wandering ronin frog from Dragonpond known as Kaeru, last of the Ryoshi (amphibian demon hunters who years ago protected the lands beyond the ponds from horrors evil and ancient).

Kaeru Gaiden, a Frog Tale
Welcome to the continuin’ amphibian saga of our favorite fearless fighting frog from Dragonpond! This is my first go at creating a comic book, and there’s much I’ve learned since I’ve started this journey in the summer of 2018. In fact, the first issue was entirely drawn and inked on paper, photographed using an iPhone 8, and colored using the YouDoodle app by hand on my phone. Needless to say, it was a very long and painstaking process that spanned over 6 months. But what can I say, where there’s a will, there’s a nerd with WAY too much time on their hands.
Fear not, internet friends! I now have a fancy iPad Pro and apple pen stylus, so I’ll be able to create better quality comics at a faster rate. Issue one was done fully in color, but for the sake of time and stylistic choices, ongoing issues will be done frog noir (black and white). With time I’ll be able to release more color issues, so stay tuned. I’m hoping with your support I’ll be able to continue telling frog tales and share the art I love so much to make!
