Friday already!

I thought Anne was going to pop in this weeks's installment since she's the keeper of the story file from last week. I know she's been uber busy this week so I offer up an art interlude based on our Samhain short story Blood Brothers For those of you not familar with the story here's a blurb:

In a world where the nights are darker and the passions run deeper, two young men go from friends to something more when a dangerous stranger appears on their doorstep.

In feudal Japan, war and famine tear through the countryside, and demons lurk in the darkness. Two young men struggle together on the outskirts of a ravaged village: the strong yet kind Liu Sakurai and his beloved gentle hearted Kiyoshi. And as their friendship endures the endless hardships, their bond grows into something more.

When the summer night brings a mysterious stranger to their door, the most dangerous desires of their dreams and nightmares are awakened. Blood now binds Kiyoshi and Sakurai together where once love did, but can this tie last an eternity?

Anne, artist extraordinare that she is, has put together a doujinshi (a short comic book) based on Blood Brothers. I've seen the basic pencil sketches and below is the first peek at the finished product. And Damn it looks like it came off the shelf with the pro manga! *Bows to Anne*
The doujinshi will be a freebie posted first to our Yahoogroup members.

So pop on over and sign up if you feel so inclined or check back here or on our website or LiveJournal for updates on availability.

It is soo professional. I think that many yaoi or m/m fangirls shouldn't be purists and insist on only "Made in Japan" products when it comes to graphic short stories because all that counts is the smexing and art. Alot of yaoi are even now mixing their style with those of western comics a bit to be different.

Look at that pesky blanket...and how it refuses to slide down further!
