Wow, I hadn't checked this website in a really long time. And I just realized that 1) The Eternal Smile is out, has been out for over an year!! I just ordered my copy off Amazon... and 2) what I believe was previously known as Half Empty is now up for viewing on the site! And I am loving it! (I remember when I used to wish there was some way to read it without paying for it on Serializer lol. I guess after years of waiting, it finally happened ........)

It's great to see that you're still kickin' and doing your thang. Keep it up! I love you!

Your most negligent fan, Ji Eun (from Seattle! College has kept me far away from WA, too bad I missed ECCC this year, assuming you were there again -3-)

derekkirkkim said...

Thanks, Ji Eun! I really appreciate it. And I'll never forget that meal you got me at ECCC. You're the best. I wasn't at ECCC this year actually because I moved to Los Angeles recently. Glad you're liking TUNE!

jieunit said...

Oh snap! I go to school in LA now. Hope I can catch you at some events soon! :D

derekkirkkim said...

Whoa! Well, I'll be happy to see you! And good luck in college!

Take a da job!

Also, I like the poster with the bear and the fish...

That sounds like the conversation I had with my mother year ago. She demanded that I better be paid me more, etc.... when I told her I was proofreading/retouching japanese (tenatacle) porn comics at work.

Korean mothers.... eesh. You totally nailed it.

derekkirkkim said...

haha, oh man... That's classic. Did you tell her what your job was?? I would never be able to tell my mom if that's what I was doing.

avotresante said...

I knew there was a reason I still kept a LiveJournal around! I'm not Korean, but my Chinese mother is pretty much the same way. Hooray for the first generation?

hwansuk said...

She knew what I was doing. It was all about the $$$$

derekkirkkim said...

Did she ask for comps?

putri_nih said...

:( That's depressing.

n3koch4n said...

really sad indeed :/

suburbatory said...

oooo - ouch!

haha, like how the smoke coming from behind the newspaper changes from one panel to the next. :D also, the mother's forceful nature makes me think of most korean moms. :D

Ouch... seriously as an illustrations student, ouch.

hwansuk said...

I wasn't even paid extra, much less given a comp =(.. (Probably for the best tho)

derekkirkkim said...

Wow... Who knew this could actually be a job option?

conga_chili said...

Yeah, besides the crazies that do it voluntarily.

Anonymous said...

Yeah, I know this job started to sound great for Andi, but if he takes it, what happens with the Yumi storyline?

I guess she could come to the zoo, too.

derekkirkkim said...

Oh yeah, she certainly isn't forgotten, believe me...

Looks like you and Gene Luen Yang won an Eisner Award for "Urgent Request" !

Congratulation !

And you totally deserve it too.

derekkirkkim said...

Thanks!

Dude, you rock. I'd been checking this blog off and on for a bit (the Tune storyline hadn't quite interested me) but now I think I'll stay. He is the greatest puppet dog after all. All joking aside, I'm a huge fan of your comics, yet this one has still yet to grip me. Keep doin' your thing, I'm sure I'll get it (eventually).

derekkirkkim said...

Well, thanks for your honesty. Sorry TUNE isn't doing it for you. Ah well, maybe my next project will be more to your liking. :)

Andy's fantasies about his movie are so unrealistic – the actor depicted in the poster isn't white :>

derekkirkkim said...

That's why it's a fantasy. ;)

Anonymous said...

Well, he is playing himself in the movie, isn't he?

"Andy Go will not only write the script but also direct and star in the film."

Absorbed the story (so far) today. Can't wait to see (and read) the next chapter.

Hiii we've talked a few times on TUNE, my name is sarah, you probably dont remember me LOL! but you did compliment my artwork/comic once, that has never left me i tell you hahaha! xD

I had been busy the last few weeks and was wondering where the comic had gone, I checked back here just to make sure i hadn't missed anything- so i just wanted to say I can't waiit for TUNE to come back, this webcomic really brightened my mornings day after day, and even tohugh you say it's only a couple of weeks i'm really missing it, it feels like forever to me Dx anyways i'm really exited to hear about a new project, please tell us what it is soon!!

I'm very happy to have found your art and comics, and it's a pleasure to be able to talk so freely about them like this with the creator (you can't do this a lot) it's not only the atmosphere but the community that is really nice here <')

thanks for the good times!! please come back soon!! hahaha xD //sarah

derekkirkkim said...

Hey Sarah, thank you for the message, good to know at least one person's looking forward to the rest of the story! ;) And believe me, I'm trying to get back to it as soon as possible. Soon! Thank you for being patient!

I regularly used to tune in, interested in what was about to happen to Andy Go. But, lately,all updates have stopped. I am requesting that you recontinue this webcomic or take it off your site. Your promise that you would update two panels a day is more than 20 panels behind. I respect you, Mr. Kim, but am growing impatient. Thank you.

Never mind, I'm sincerely sorry. I didn't read the other comments. Please forgive me, and if possible, delete both these comments.

Just wondering - will you be at APE with any artwork or books?

derekkirkkim said...

Sadly no.

Hi, I recently discovered your comic TUNE and must say you have a new fan. Parallel universe? Didn't see that coming and am now intrigued to see how things work out. Thanks.

How much does band-width cost anyway? Is it really expensive?

derekkirkkim said...

It's really cheap if no one comes to your site.

hwansuk said...

Glad to see the comic running again!
(which reminds me that we should update our webcomic soon too.... =/...)

tkimeng124_02 said...

YOU'RE BACK!
The only online comic I followed is back. :D

derekkirkkim said...

Thanks for the welcome back everyone!

derekkirkkim said...
