Mei Li is an extrovert from a culture that told her she shouldn’t be. Fortunately, not speaking the best English is a great cover up for the social skills she doesn’t quite have. She’s working toward a high enough TOEFL score that she can stay in a U.S. school. Ultimately, she plans on getting a business degree.
She stumbled into Cid’s makeshift film club and liked the idea of being on camera, so here she is.
Hey, since you scrolled this far down, check out our new shirt. It’s for the Thieves Can’t comic, but some Ramen Empire shirts will be coming fairly soon. Zach wanted to draw cute goblins, though, because cute goblins make everything way, way less stressful.
Shirt not your cuppa? Still want to show some support for the comic? Then consider a voluntary subscription over on our Ramen Empire Patreon. You’ll get access to the occasional book, podcast, and bonus art. It also helps us keep the lights on. Drawing in the dark stinks, so think it over!
We went through quite a few different panels for the end of this comic, and (as it happens) the end of chapter three, and I think they flesh out the world in a pretty fun way. Also, we don’t share many sketches and I think it’s probably time to change that.
So, I’m moving. Which means packing, cleaning, etc. And the side effect of this has been that I’m not updating Ramen Empire on Tapastic or uploading the high res images onto Patreon, both because these are fairly time-consuming, monotonous tasks, and because because there is never really any sense that people are reading the comic on those platforms. I’m going to do a Patreon High-Res comic dump toward the end of the month, or so I keep telling myself, but I’m not certain if it has any value to you guys. If you’ve ever downloaded the print resolution stuff, leave a comment. Alternatively, if you haven’t, that helps me to know, too. =) It’s nice not having the extra work, but I’m happy to do it if I know people are using it.
