If you don't mind, I'll just stand outside my local comic shop holding a wad of cash until November.

Chynna, your silly/brilliant comics have been a part of my life starting in college, through 5 years of touring in a punk band and now part of the next chapter of my life here in my new home of Los Angeles. Just wanted to thank you and tell you how excited I am for this. I've come to terms with the fact that we may never get issue #2 of strangetown (are we ever going to?). Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

Hey, Johnny!

Thank you so much for the super sweet note! I'm glad you're psyched about the new BM series, and believe it or not (I know, I know) Strangetown WILL come out, but in graphic novel form so that no one has to wait for another issue to be released since the start was so shaky. (Frankly the GN format will suit it better, everyone agrees.) Think of issue one as a prologue! I'll be working on that after this next BM series, and then be back to BM, 'cos it's my baby and all that.

Congrats on making Los Angeles your new home! What band are you in? Or were you in? Do tell.

I've been reading and keeping up with your work since 9th grade, still a huge fan! :)

hey im soooo glad ur going on with the series. ur books are soo feking funny.i started reading them in my class because my teacher who has no clue how to teach art bought these comics for us art kids as a reference it was actually scooter girl. i was bored read half the comic and was hooked i ran to the comic books store and demanded more. i then got blue monday and every other novel youve inked. i never thought i was that good at art and my family wanted me to be a vet because i have a cavalier and a rescue yorkie that i love they are my kids with four legs.but i took some time off and i got enough confedence to go back into art i love it. you are kinda im saying this sheepishly i promise my hero because ur a wicked cool chick who can write a killer story and make me laugh. my best friend and I, became close because of ur novels im more like clover and shes like bleu. we go to the irish fest every year and wear t shirts with clover and bleu on them its feking funny nobody knows what the comics are i tell everyone i kno about them im nutz. i kno ur amazing artist and you are probably real busy but if ya got any tips give me them please. i need to make a living off art or die trying.

I am SOOOO happy that Blue Monday came out, honestly your comic was what got me reading comics years ago! :) We had a painting assignment where we could choose whatever we wanted, and i chose things that remind me of Ann Arbor, MI ( i live out here) and i chose hello kitty, and Blue Finnegan from your new cover of Volume 1. It actually turned out pretty good:) ( i decided to do it because of it getting me into comics and because we have a very neat comic shop out here called Vault of Midnight.) Anyways keep up the great works, happy holidays and i read the comment below about strangetown and i cannot wait! :)
