[Coming Soon] Putting the @$$ back in Slipshine...

From the artist that brought you a bunch of discontinued comics that float around in the limbo of Slipshine's Rotating Comic graveyard...

Comes a BRAND NEW SERIES doomed to FAILURE!

THANKS to the POWER of the INTERNETS--
YOU, hapless SLIPSHINE blogspot readers, shall be among the FIRST to witness this MARGINALLY INTERESTING event AS IT UNFOLDS. (Aside from Josh Lesnick and the other Slipshine artists... who're already reading the comic as I upload. XD)

BEHOLD, THE NEXT MUNDANE THING:

BOUNCIN BON BON
EBONY BLADE

BE THERE!

COMIC CON 2008


ARE YOU GONNA BE IN SAN DIEGO NEXT MONTH? CAUSE SOME OF US WILL BE!

  • Cheezy WEAPON, creator of Sin Cube and Lez
  • Secret Agent 0069, creator of Chiba and Canadian Customs
  • J.J., creator of Anathema, Cherry Bomb, and The Lounge
  • Josh Lesnick, creator of Girly, Doctor Voluptua, and Slipshine itself

Momo drew the terrific banner featuring out favorite internet porn fairy. We'd like to get him and Zamora over there too (they live 600 miles away), but we need to find a hotel for them. =O

We will be at booth 2102, which is right behind the Something*Positive/Devil's Panties/Two Lumps/etc booth! We might sell a little sampler print collection and a couple Slipshine related comics, as well as offering sketches and whatnot. Since I'm paying for 1/2 the booth out of my pocket, half of it will be devoted to Girly too. If we do well this year, we'll keep coming, and try to bring more artists!

BE THERRRRRRE

Doctor Voluptua - once a Slipshine comic


Doctor Voluptua is one of those comics I'll be working on when I'm not running Slipshine. It may seem strange for the owner of Slipshine to draw a porn comic and host it off site, but the explanation is pretty simple. First of all, space has been kinda limited and I wanted to make room for the other artists. But mostly, this is an ongoing experiment to gauge the possibility of offering free adult comics through the Slipshine network. When it comes to dangerous experiments like this, I'd rather put my own head on the chopping block than send another one of my artists out there.

Offering free porn comics is... not easy. The benefit is that you reach a wider audience. And said benefit can be a curse, because free porn can inevitably lead to high bandwidth. And how can you pay for it? Making money with internet porn can be tough because companies like P*ypal don't want anything to do with us. Companies like CCBill are nice to us but only offer subscription services. So how do we sell merchandise? We'll there are ways. A lot of them are kinda expensive. Ultimately I'll figure something out, but it takes time.

Soooo.. don't expect all of Slipshine to be free anytime soon. But in the distant future, who knows...

At any rate, it's been fun drawing the current story. If you're not reading it yet, that's doctorvoluptua.com Now updating again!
