The Books

Just Another Day is coming soon as a book! (Or two.) With a bunch of extra bits not included in the comic. Or maybe it'll just sit on my hard drive since, like most artists and writers, my work embarasses me... Anywho, until I make a proper epub, or even go all the way to print, here they shall be posted online for you to enjoy! Or perhaps share in my cringing with. Either way, here they be.
