Fishbones

hdreadswebcomics:

Fishbones by Jisuk Cho and Yuki S. is a gangster comic.  Well, mafia.  As someone who has seen The Godfather and Goodfellas, it’s pretty neat to see that genre expand into webcomics.  It started as Cho’s National Novel Writing Month novel and is now being slowly converted into graphic novel format.  Unfortunately, due to busyness in Yuki’s life, it has been on hiatus for a while with no end in sight.  

It’s a good webcomic though.  Fishbones is set in the 90s in New York and follows the friendship of Ferris, a massive nerd, and Demos, the nephew of a mob boss and a fairly apathetic kid.

Ferris is the one in glasses.  He gets beaten up a lot.  Demos tries to help him out.  Grumpiness ensues.  They’re both very, very grumpy characters in different ways, so it’s interesting to see why they’re friends with each other.

It has a lot of really funny moments, and some pretty scary ones, too, especially when Ferris starts realizing what his family is involved in.

Baby Ferris is really cute.

Don’t get your hopes up of it returning any time soon, but do read it if you have the chance.  It’s pretty fun, quite dark, and it made me flinch more than once.

Do you live in Japan (or know someone who does)?
I’m collecting gotochi (regional postcards) and would love to trade with you! They can be purchased at any post office. I can send you the Tokyo postcard designs, or Fishbones postcards, or if you don’t care for postcards I’d be happy to reimburse you for the cost via PayPal. Please message me if you’re willing to help, and thanks!
Note: I don’t need cards from Osaka, Kobe, Nara, Okinawa, or Tokyo.

A South Korean ferry named the Sewol has capsized off the southern coast of SK. There were more than 460 people on board. Most of them were high school students. Students are still trapped inside, and are texting their parents through their smartphones begging for help.

Jisuk never said that. I just wanted to draw us eating burgers together.

No I totally said that&#8230;
