Hey Everyone!<br><br><br><br>
If you missed the previous posts about Pride High, it's an independent, gay-themed, vegetarian-friendly comic book. It follows the story of a gay-straight alliance at a high school for superpowered youth. Two of the main characters, Suravi & Kid Mischief, are vegetarian (Kid Mischief is "vegan-curious"), while a mentor of theirs, Verdant (yup, my namesake), is vegan. The first 12 of 36 pages are free, and can be accessed at<br><br><br><br><a href="http://pridecomics.com/previews.html" target="_blank">http://pridecomics.com/previews.html</a><br><br><br><br>
It was sent to the printers on September 5th. I'm looking at (hopefully) a September 27th print release. My friends and I are planning to officially release the online version a week earlier, on Wednesday, September 20th. However, I'm releasing it here a few days early <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">.<br><br><br><br><a href="http://pridecomics.com/checkout.html" target="_blank">http://pridecomics.com/checkout.html</a><br><br><br><br>
For friends who don't speak English as a first language, the Japanese, French, and Dutch versions of Pride High are currently in production. Previews of these are linked from the main page:<br><br><br><br><a href="http://pridecomics.com" target="_blank">http://pridecomics.com</a><br><br><br><br>
Best,<br><br>

Congratuations on getting it done! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/carrot.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":vebo:"> Looks very promising.<br><br><br><br>
Reminds me of X-Men, except of course that X-Men's homosexual undertones stayed in the closet. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=";)">

Thanks! This past Sunday my friends and I celebrated Pride High's print release with a signing at "Whatever," the comic shop in San Francisco's Castro district. I was treated to an AMAZING vegetarian Indonesian dinner later that night as a gift <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">.<br><br><br><br><a href="http://www.pridecomics.com/castro-street-fair/" target="_blank">http://www.pridecomics.com/castro-street-fair/</a>

<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">..Always glad to see veg*n cartoon chars. I keep asking about veg*n anime but so far there seems to be none despite the loads of anime there is.<br><br><br><br>
I have veg*n chars myself, but I'm not into the story part, I just use them to build my portfolio.<br><br><br><br>
If I start buying comics again sometime, I'll definatly buy one.

Yeah, they're rare. In mainstream comics, I can only think of two:<br><br><br><br>
Karolina from the Runaways<br><br>
Beast Boy from the Teen Titans<br><br><br><br>
In anime, the only one I can recall is Nadia from "Nadia: The Secret of Blue Water."
