The PDFs below are a higher resolution than the online version and are easier for some to read.
As of May 2014, I'm starting to release some of JAD to print. JAD can now sit on your shelf! The comic itself will always be free and can be found in the comic archives. These are just the convenient offline versions.
The short stories I will be charging for to help with my hosting fees.
If you have commissioned me in the past, let me know which PDFs you want and I will email them. You did a lot to help keep my baby warm and fed.
Currently experimenting with ways to offer these things for those who have difficulty with Paypal. (Let's face it, Paypal has had some notable incidents.) On the list for the moment is Listia.
