How to buy my books! Several ways!

Venmo   1. Send me money on venmo, for one book, $34.00, specify if you want volume 1 or 2, if you want both, it's $60.00 save $8.00! My Venmo username is @james-mobius Put your mailing address in the note field so I know where to send it. I send you the book(s), Venmo gives me all the money. This is the best way to buy. No corporation profits from my work.

pony up plz   2.   Click that paypal button and send me the money through paypal. Put your mailing address in the note field so I know where to send the book(s). I send you the book(s), Paypal takes a percentage of the money you gave me if I transfer it to my bank, but not if I use it to buy stuff online, which I only sometimes do. If you don't have venmo do this, you don't need a paypal account, just a credit card.

Etsy   3.   Click that Etsy button, which links to my Etsy store, and buy through them. Etsy takes a cut of my meager profit, buying directly from me is better for me.

Square   4.   Click that Square-up button, which links to my Square store, and buy through them. They also take a cut of my meager profit, buying directly from me is better for me.

sbemail   5. Mail me a money order, you'll have to me for my address, I don't have a PO box anymore.

Square If you live outside the continental US you'll have to me and tell me where you live, so I can find out how much the postage is going to be. we can proceed from there. Sorry that's the best I can currently do.

Now back to our regularly scheduled web page, already in progress.

Sequential art is a fancy word for comic books. Except they aren't always comic. They also aren't always in book form, although that is becoming increasingly popular. "Graphic novels" is another term for the visual illustrated storytelling medium which is starting to gain the respect in the US that it has long had in Europe and Asia, where the general populace is not still living in the 1950's and thinking comic books are only for children.

Here are some samples of some of my work in this medium. I do autobiographical work, as well as my own quirky sort of humour, tinged with surrealism and Science Fiction. I don't live in a box though. I'll draw whatever I want to. Some of my work is based on my dreams. I'm currently associated with the boston comics roundtable and have published some work in some of their anthologies.

UPDATE; 4-23!

Prasga Volume 2 collecting issues 6-10 exists now! 150 pages (including covers, because I put work into those), glossy paper this time, woo! because my printer couldn't get the same paper as last time and what they had absorbed too much dark colour ink and made my smooth airbrush style shading look less smooth than I wanted, so I shelled out extra dough for better paper, am I charging you more? I am not, I'm swallowing the difference, because I'm ridiculous. And then what happened? The pricier glossy paper didn't look any different, much to my chagrin. I know most people will think the colours look fine, but I'm giving away a free hand drawn sketch card with every copy of this first printing to assuage my own guilt for selling what I think is not as great looking as it should have been! whee.

I'm currently self publishing an ongoing sci-fi-music romantic comedy adventure series for adults called Punk Rock Alien Space Girl Adventures, or PRASGA for short. you can read it now on the following sites, Facebook.com/prasgacomic , instagram.com/prasgacomic and on my deviantArt account (includes some NSFW art, and uncensored versions of my comics, which I must censor for failbook and instacrap as they are draconian puritanical fuddy-duddys, apparently. d: You can view the extant covers right here, click them to see them BIGGER. Full sized high resolution images can be downloaded directly from my deviantArt account, and nowhere else, currently. There will be at least 20 issues/chapters, in total for this series.

You can now read my work uncensored, at prasga.thecomicseries.com a webcomic platform hosted by comicfury.com not as high resolution as on deviantart, but there's one page, so far, that I had to censor even for deviantart which I didn't have to at comicfury.com.
Also if you prefer this site, that ganks comics from other sites, you can read it through Comic-rocket here. I stumbled across that platform, it would have been nice if they'd asked, but I guess they don't need to? In any case they offered to let me put my own 'about me' and header images etc on their site, so that was nice. I expect they're selling advertising framed around comics, but it looks like a pretty big operation.

I also now have a Patreon page, where for as little as 3 cents a day, $1/month, or as much as you can comfortably afford to donate in support of the arts, you can read this book as soon as each page is done, before anyone else, all of issue 10 is posted there as of 10-18-22, which I haven't posted anywhere else yet, it's only half pencilled and a quarter inked and coloured, but it's all lettered and readable even if half rough art/thumbnails. You'll also have access to high resolution scans of over 5,400 pieces of art by me, no kidding and more on the way. Most of those have been seen by only a handful of people, and until I posted them there, by no one but me! There's also music, and will be other things. visit it here to check it out: patreon.com/jamesmobius.

Other titles by me, currently in print, include: "They said I was MAD!" A one-man anthology, with comics and art dating as far back as 1995, but also including current work. I have 12 copies of this currently available through my Square store, 10 are in colour, partly, 2 are all black & white editions. I can also sell them to you directly. I need to work out the postage tho, I'll be doing that shortly.

When I made my debut as a published comic book artist a few years ago, it was assisting the notable Goth Humourist, musician, animator, artist/writer Voltaire by doing some digital shading for his current TPB (trade paper-back) a collection called Deady the evil Teddy, volume 3. Also among the creators involved in this book is Neil Gaiman! Not too shabby. Neil, in case you are living in a cave is the premier writer in Comics, as well as a worldwide top selling novelist, and screenplay author, who's movie Mirrormask is now availble on DVD. Neil recently recieved an award for having received more awards than anyone else. (ok not really, I made that bit up, but it seems inevitable). Here is a cropped detail image of a page I shaded, first you see the orignal linework, then the shaded art, then just my shading, so you can see precisely what my contribution to the page was. I should point out that I had to mimic Voltaire's style of shading, which he is perfectly capable of doing, (given more lenient deadlines, and less Captain Morgan), and that like all the shaders on this book, he later made some adjustments to our art for uniformity's sake. Much thanks to Voltaire for the gig, and to Donna, for letting me know about the opportunity.

unfortunately the pages are not numbered in this book, however to let you know exactly what I did, flip open your copy of the book, (you don't have one? Go buy one!) the interior cover has the indicia (copyright and publication information) on it, the next page you see, the "splash page" is page #1. I shaded pages 24, 34, 35 (except the flower monster in the upper right hand corner, and the rather upside down strawberry looking monster at the bottom, oh, nor did I shade the 2 critters flanking him on that page) and I did page 44, (which took 11 hours!)

Some (possibly all, haven't checked thoroughly yet), of the pages I did were reprinted in a collected edition "the big book of Deady", on store shelves now where-ever fine comix are sold! Also I'll be doing new stuff for "Deady: Big in Japan" due out later this year, possibly early next year.
