ABSTRACT STUDIO COMICS – JOURNAL
NEWS: We’re going to release a tiny print run of Five Years #10 for subscribers, & anyone who wants one really. This is for those reading the single issues who don’t want to wait months to read the final chapter. If not a subscriber, you can preorder a copy in our store now. Just CLICK HERE.
The rumor is Diamond Comics will reopen this summer and we will be able to stagger release issue 9 and 10 to the general public then. 9 is sitting in their warehouse, waiting like a rodeo bull. For the small number hooked on the singleissues, we feel you deserve 10 now, because without your monthly support the series couldn’t have happened at all.

We’re having a big art sale beginning today (at 9 AM CST), offering many new sketches and for the first time in years, cover art! Look through the Original Art folder and you’ll find choices from all my series, Strangers In Paradise, Echo, Rachel Rising, Motor Girl, Strangers In Paradise XXV, Five Years, SiP KIDS… a lot! To browse the art, click HERE.
If you have any questions about a page, or even about a page not listed, email us. The contact info is on this home page.
Also, please note that you can now buy all 9 issues of Five Years in pdf format for your screen reading. To check that out, click HERE. I’m working on issue 10, the final issue, now.
First, we want to wish everyone good health. Nothing is more important than that during this catastrophic situation. Stay home and stay healthy.
As you know we are an independent publisher and have no safety net from a big corporation to help us get us through this challenging time. It is Robyn and me making this train go. We need the comic shops to sell our books and they need us to provide books for their customers. It’s a win/win until something breaks. Because of the closure of Diamond Comic Distributors we have no way of getting our comics and trade paperbacks to the comic shops. We’re hurting and the comic shops are hurting.
We are offering all retailers a wholesale discount if they order directly from us for as long as necessary. We want you to get through this intact and we want to continue to publish comics. If you are interested in placing an order for any of our books you can contact Robyn at email@example.com or through our website. P.S. Five Years #9 is available now!
To our amazing readers, we can’t thank you enough for your continued support and so appreciate your kind words of encouragement. We will continue to reach out to you on social media and through our site with updates. We can’t imagine getting through this without you.
Hang in there! I’m working on the final issue of Five Years in hopes that I can sign your copy, in person, at a convention!
Wash your hands!
