You know what’s kind of the best? Meeting (even digitally) an artist who inspired your work in the first place. Last month, I got to chat with Christine Alvarado – who makes the most gorgeous and unique dolls in the world.. and whose very special calavera catrinas inspired Nenetl.
And she seemed happy to meet me too. Here’s what she wrote about the encounter:
NENETL OF THE FORGOTTEN SPIRITS Part 2 dropped! You can snag yourself a gorgeous full-colored copy over here!

If you just checked that out, you may have noticed that there are some changes on the website. We’ve lately been hard at work at Greentea Publishing and brought some fantastic changes to it. Our biggest change is that we have now made digital versions of most comics available for super easy purchase!
We’ve also made an easier interface, added more books (check out out our newest Ben Jelter book, Moscow 38!) and cleaned up the backwoods of the site in order to make shipping to YOU easier and faster. It’s a whole new planet at Greentea Publishing and I hope you guys come visit!
Here’s the actual link: http://www.comixology.com/Papa/digital-comic/46961
The comiXology app is free to download, and PAPA costs less than $3. The Guided Technology is wonderful, I’d recommend reading all your digital comics there!
Something amazing just happened.
LEV GROSSMAN likes my comic!! Forgive me as I weep tears of glee.
Today marks the beginning of New York Comic Con! I hope some of you get to go and enjoy the incredibly fun, crazy (and somewhat terrifying) affair that is this monster of a convention! I am planning on attending, however, due to a remarkably small amount of disposable funds, I will not have a table this year. Instead, I will be wandering the country of NYCC, trying to catch the eye of a publisher or two.
I have made these little collections of my work of the past two years, and thought you guys might enjoy the handcrafted packaging. I’m not super crafty, so this took a bit to make, but hopefully someone will like them!
So, in the spirit of the approaching Fall season, Laura and I have begun working on Part Two of our Day of the Dead comic miniseries. We are terribly excited to launch our Kickstarter this past week, and even more pleased to see the welcoming public response.

Meanwhile, The Beat ran an interview with me this week. We talked about lots of things, including; my working process with Laura, what inspired me to write an all-ages horror series, and of course, my advice to anyone who is wondering whether they can do a Kickstarter project. You can read that here: http://comicsbeat.com/interview-vera-greentea-on-nenetl-of-the-forgotten-spirits/
And, if you’d like to check out the Kickstarter itself, that can be found here:
A couple of things!

And most importantly, you can now buy Papa over on my website! And that is here.
Thanks, and enjoy!
