And so we come to the end of Act 1 Scene 2…
It’s been great sharing our creation with so many wonderful fans. And, we’d like to remind you that joining us on Patreon will really help make this web comic happen faster. Additionally, purchasing our limited edition (only 200) Preview Comicbook will help us too! Thank you all for your support and words of encouragement and love!
RomeoXJulien is a yaoi/gay/BL (boylove) webcomic. It’s a comic riff on the story Will Shakespeare ripped off from Ovid’s Pyramus and Thisbe. So, really, there is nothing new under the sun.
It’s the story of the Capulet Family, who run a Renaissance Festival in Lake Verona, California, an imaginary place (sorry, ’cause it would be cool if it really existed). And their son, Julien, who likes to cosplay in women’s clothing. So, what happens when Romeo meets Julien? The mixed up story of instant attraction and a bit of screwing around with what a person’s mind perceives and what is real should prove to be quite a lot of fun for readers. The beautiful art will also attract the reader that appreciates how a story isn’t told only with words.
For now the comic is pretty SFW except for a couple of “bad words” and a little Christmas gift silliness, but there will be some Adult content. When the time comes it will be mentioned beforehand and not all the the pages with adult content will be released on this private site, some will be held for the published comic. This will not detract from the story.
We’ll be running a GoFundMe or Kickstarter campaign when the time comes to make this a publication. We’re estimating that will be in the late summer of 2015, or when we get enough fans insisting we start getting funds together for a publication.
THANK YOU FOR READING RomeoXJulien!
Thank you for joining us as we continue to unveil the story of Romeo X Julien. There’s not a better way to spend the day in New England right now than creating this wonderful story. We’ve gotten record snowfall for yet another week, with more on the way. Time to curl up with a warm cup of cocoa laced with rum chatta and create.
We’ve put together a full color book of all the featured characters of the RomeoXJulien Story, plus a bio page for the creators, plus Act 1: Scene 1. It’s only $6 plus shipping, and you will also receive one of our Just Yaoi bookmarks. Ordering is easy, just head over to the right side of this page and you’ll see how! Thank you for your support! Lots of fun to come!
Many things have happened in the past week, where do we begin?…
First, a huge thank you to our first Patron: Pj Letersky. Many thanks for making this first donation, Pj, it starts us on our way to being able to create more pages at a faster rate! We’ll be sending you a copy of our LIMITED EDITION Preview Book!
Next, Ohayocon! Wow! We met fans there and made new fans, and what a wonderful convention! We sold the first lot of our LIMITED EDITION Preview Book, signed many, and ran a fun panel where we told our fans all about how RomeoXJulien and Just Yaoi came to be. And, they got Spoilers. You’ll all love what’s coming in the new pages… but they know it’s gonna be awesome!
Anyway, here’s Page 20 of ROMEOxJULIEN… Enjoy
Romeo toweling off…’nuff said!
O Romeo, Romeo … THERE fore art thou Romeo… FINALLY!
So, trying a little something different with the page art this time. Rather than doing it monochromatic, we’re using the original black & white lineart combined with a single color toning, creating a bit more depth and definition. Like?
We’re pleased to announce that MARINA (both of us) will be in Artists Alley at Ohayocon 15 in Columbus, Ohio, January 30-Feb 1.
