study-group:

Happy birthday to us! Study Group Comics is 2 years old today! We normally don’t post on Tuesdays, but seeing as how it’s our special day, we thought we’d announce a couple new serials & a SALE!

In a weird way, it’s only fitting that one of the big inspirations for the site itself, Dash Shaw’s BODYWORLD, is coming to SG. BodyWorld helped me reconsider what I thought about webcomics could be, and each new update left me invigorated and excited to see what came next. In turn, Dash has been a big supporter of the SG site, and proposed that we run Body World in a slightly remastered form from its original release. Of course I said yes! Maybe you’ve read it already, but if not, get pumped because it’s a hilarious, exciting exploration of self, futurism, small town mentality, drug culture & ESP. The Prelude drops today and we’ll be serializing the first chapter starting in a week or two.

Today also brings two new comics from Portland cartoonists - First up is part two of the surreal GRAY CITY, by Ryan Dirks. Ryan gets better and better with every comic he does, and Gray City is a slice of strangeness. It’s weird & it’s wonky & I like it a lot.

Last but not least is 2005 by Gridlord extraordinaire Sean Christensen. Sean’s is a unique voice and I’m pleased to welcome his oddly trippy buddy comics to Study Group.


ADDITIONALLY: I thought it’d be cool to do a sale, since that’s always fun. Take 10% off any order when you plug in the code GROUPER during checkout. The sale is active all week, till next Tuesday the 21st.

PS- if you order any of the Ghost Attack comics, you’ll be getting a new printing done on a risograph in colored ink, so there’s that!

Chapter 2 of Gray City is now up on Study Group!  There’s also a small quantity of print editions available now in my store.  It has all 17 pages of chapters 1 and 2 for only $4 (+$1 for shipping in US).  Thanks!
