“Tonoharu: Part Two” Dust Jackets, F&Gs

I recently got some Tonoharu: Part Two stuff back from the book printer, so I thought I’d show it here.

Above is an unfolded dust jacket; below is a mock-up of how it’ll look folded up.


The printer also sent me “folded and gathered” signatures (or “F&Gs”). Basically this is the complete book, except it isn’t bound together, as you can see from the image below.

Here’s the first page from the comic:

And a detail of the last two panels:

I’m really excited with how all these turned out. All that’s left is for them to be bound up, and then they’re done! I’m still not exactly sure when I’ll get some books, but it won’t be long now. I’ll keep you posted!

Bonus Image:
Since I was taking photos anyway, I snapped a shot of the first panel from Tonoharu: Part Three (!) which I just started drawing this week.

It never ends, folks. (*sob*)

    Oh man… those look superb. Can. Not. Wait. till the book is ready. Hey – is that a view of Kyoto from Kiyomizu in the vol.3 panel? Looking good – and good luck as you get into it.

    Good eye! It is Kyoto.


  • It really looks amazing. I can not wait to read this. :)
