PTR_Header_Small_005Have you had to deal with harsh and/or useless criticism of your creative work? It happens, and I talk about what you can do about it. I also review the webcomic Ramen Empire.

LINKAGE!

First up, I mentioned recently posting an interview with Jeff Lemire. You can find that here:

Webcomic Review: Ramen Empire

CaptureFind Ramen Empire here:
http://ramen-empire.com/

Direct link to their about page, to find out more about the guys behind it:
http://ramen-empire.com/about/

Naturally since I talked about where to find certain things on their site, they went ahead and changed up their site!!! I guess I should have checked that between my write-up and recording my podcast. Live and learn. Anyhow here’s a few updates based on their changes:

Their Patreon link, which I talk about, is now located under a tab called “Get Cool Stuff”. Here’s a direct link to make it easier for you:
https://www.patreon.com/ramen_empire

I also talk talk about their bonus comics which they had called “Sillies”. They now call this “Silly Mode” (vs. Story Mode, get it?). So, if you’re looking for that, now you know where it is.

YEP.
