Yugen Junk Weekly
Announcing serialized novels
J. David Osborne and I are each writing our own serialized novels, inspired by our favorite mangaka and the manga model in general. Each week, we’ll think up, write, and drop a new chapter over on the newly created Yugen Junk website. We’re still ironing out the kinks of making the serialized chapters for our respective online novels more streamlined, but meantime, we’re more concerned with actually writing and dropping these chapters. Art, cooler website, and more fluid stream of accessibility coming soon but I think we’re kicking it off in a pretty simple enough way. Any comments are welcome, as far as how to link to the chapters/website design/the stories themselves as they develop. Let’s all have fun with it. But without further ado...
RONIN TRASH by J. David Osborne
SAMURAI JESUS by Kelby Losack
Oh yeah, you’ll get a prompt that says ‘password.’ That’s available to Agitator Z patrons only. Sign up here for the best and most varied channel on all subscription platforms. I’ll only speak for myself, because David’s got his own way of doing shit and the Dying World series is continuing as well, but aside from a short story collection and some collabo projects on the horizon, this is the only way I care to write for the foreseeable future. Write it, drop it, post it - all with a monthly backing support of $5 per person. Much better model for me to just do what I love, which is create these stories and images and drop them instantly. With Samurai Jesus, I’ll probably do yearly volume collections and drop those in print, but that’s a process to tackle later. Meanwhile, don’t sleep. Shouts out everyone following us along on this journey of writing prose like a mangaka.
