Moth & Tanuki final in Mania Summer Special 

The Mania Summer Special is out now. This one contains Moth & Tanuki's final colour adventure.

I really liked this episode until I discovered a really stupid typo in it (why are these things only visible in print?). This Christmas story is a nice place to leave the series (if there can be such a thing - it wasn't my decision). The cheapskates out there can read this one in the shop, as it's not sealed in a plastic bag :) .

I don't know if I'll anthologise the M&T stories. I haven't ever done that with anything else (Maelstrom, Busker Jim, Riffin' to Oblivion, Children of the Moon, etc.) and don't really see a reason to start now, particularly as colour printing is expensive and I'm not familiar with any layout programs.

There's the second part of a black-and-white M&T story still to come in OzTaku, but nothing more after that. Actually, I haven't drawn anything since I finished Moth & Tanuki and I don't know if I'm missing it that much.

It's sort of the end of an era. I came across your blog when you submitted some Moth and Tanuki to Illustration Friday a couple of years ago, and I'm glad I did.

Maybe this break will give you the time you need to pick up the guitar again for a bit?
Well, we hope to see you back with renewed enthusiasm. You've been blogging so long, we'd hate to see you go.

My Sully had a similar Christmas list this year. Only he doesn't write as well as Tanuki. It's a great ending to a great series.
