I said on Twitter I'd post ONE page. But it's a silent comic, and I feel like it should be read in one sitting, so I'm going to post all EIGHT pages in one night. Yes, I'm sacrificing traffic, but it's all in service of a better reading experience. I hope you enjoy. Crits and comments much appreciated, there'll be a process post on this comic later in the week.
This retelling of Momotaro is set in post WWII Japan (Occupied Japan, really). I had a lot of trouble finding reference- the home is based on information gathered while visiting the Tokyo-Edo Museum and their designs are based on tinted photography from 1935 to 1960.

Vigilante comic artist, illustrator, and comic craft blogger at www.nattosoup.blogspot.com. I have an MFA from SCAD in Sequential Art, which means I'm highly educated in the art of drawing funny picture books. I specialize in comics aimed at young girls, and enjoy the finer things in life- seinen manga, whiney autobio graphic novels, and science fiction.
