Blackbird - Book 1 cover v2 by shilin Blackbird - Book 1 cover v2 by shilin
Continuing my nothing-new-to-upload streak... this is cover ver.2 I made for Blackbird book 1. I finished and uploaded this on the actual manga site back in april or something when I finished book 1. I was going to submit this when I announce Blackbird for sale, but I didn't expect to have so much other crap to do that it's taking this long to get Blackbird ready for printing. now I hate this cover LOL... so I'm going to draw another one when the time comes.

- - -

- Blackbird is my original webcomic, updated with 2 pages weekly currently, and you can read it here: blackbird . ashen-ray . com [link]

- Since more and more people are confused now, Blackbird has NOTHING to do with "Black Bird", the japanese shojo manga that is currently in print. They happen to share a similar name and if someone really wants to argue it, I began publishing Blackbird on the web more than a year before "Black Bird" appeared.

Yea...I remember when I saw the Black Bird manga in stores, I immediantly thought, "Shilin published her webcomic?" and I got excited but then I picked it up and realized it was something else. XD

Great cover by the way. I always love your shadow work...well, all of your work! XD
