imMATURE #5 is published

It is a privilege and a pleasure to be able to announce the Erosarts, who has tirelessly illustrated the Tales of Gnosis College for almost a decade now, has recently put out some of his own work under the title imMATURE Comics, issue #5. There two remarkable new stories here, super-heavy on babes, bondage, and outright science fiction. To tease the first, “The Secretary,” a voluptuous young woman answers a want-ad for a secretarial position. Her rather unusual-looking employers subject her to a rather unusual job interview.

"The Secretary," p. 5, a comics story written and illustrated by Lon Ryden.

If you’re a reader of this site, I’ll be you want to see what happens next! Erosarts has graciously agreed to make this page available in high resolution: click to load or right-click to download.

The comic, which includes this story and two others, is available at It appears to be the site’s policy to tuck adult material behind a membership wall (membership by itself doesn’t cost anything). If you want to get to the landing page for this comic, you need to register at, log in, click on the “Account” tab on the top of the page, click on “My Account Settings” down the page, and then check the “Adult” box, and then (and apparently only then) you can use use this link to get to the landing and order page for the comic.

But it’s worth the hassle, believe me…

Bait now has a really permanent home

I am pleased to announce that my (very) graphic novella Bait has a permanent Internet Archive home:

Here is the link to the archive page, where you can download the whole graphic novel and all of its pendant art in either CBZ (a comic book archive format similar to ZIP) or as a single big PDF document. You can also read the comic in a nifty screen reader the archive provides (also embedded in small size above). The archive has also auto-converted my uploads into a variety of other formats. The completeness or reliability of these versions is a bit uncertain, but I would welcome reports from anyone who wants to look at them.

At 113 pages and with no fewer than five contributing artists, the assembly and uploading of this version of the comic was an unusual challenge, and it pleases me no end that this particular phase of the Bait project is now complete!
