10/28/08 "Every strip has a laugh, even when it is really meant to set up for a larger joke." ~Kevin Huxford, Schwapp

"Satirical cartoon of present-day US. B&W, good art. If you read MAD-magazine back at the day or like Crumb-style art, this is for you." ~Garfunkel, Iron Tower Studio, 10/27/2008

9/2008 "If you're tired of the same ol' comic book furfural you should definitely check out the Wang." ~Tony DiGerolamo, Knights of the Dinner Table #143

9/2/08 "Yan's not an innovator, but he's a worthy artist to carry on a tradition of the grotesque in comics." ~Rob Clough, High-Low, Sequart.com, 9/2008


REVVVelations by Jolyon Yates and Stan Yan

Imagine the future of this country where corporations have usurped control of the states; where corporate mercenary war fallout has left humanity rampant with genetic mutation; AND, where your TV remote has an on/off button, volume control, and only ONE channel… because you only NEED one channel for the craze that’s sweeping the nation: the RACE!

This is the world of REVVVelations. Enter Moose and Essie, our fearless guerilla TV broadcasters – chased by FCC agents into the CoorGen Mountain Regional Race. These two archrivals are forced to put their social and professional differences behind them and join forces, battling their personal ghosts, to stay alive -- but more importantly -- professionally viable in their quest to deliver REAL news!

REVVVelations is an action adventure jam packed with humor, reliousity, romantic tension, and mutant disfigurations.  Oh, and YES, there is cannibalism, but it’s really not polite to talk about, even though everyone knows it happens.

Milwaukee, WI (Vocus/PRWEB ) August 26, 2009 - Scott Leland, PLAYER MAP president and author of the cartoon, created Opal to poke fun at outdated but still common sales notions. Opal is a "sales diva" who unleashes her incisive wit on old-school selling methods. The ensemble cast also features the character Larry, who is trapped in time defining sales in the mythical "good old days," and Miles, a sharp character who is new to sales and challenges the status quo. The strip features the art of Stan Yan, of Squid Works Comics.

3/21/2006 Intro To Webcomics in the Pulse

The Potlatch Infestation by Stan Yan

As co-publisher for Potlatch: Comics to Benefit the CBLDF, Stan Yan ended up with an inordinate number of these books in his basement.  So, in the past few years, he's tried to turn that to his advantage by offering it as an enticement for FREE to folks at conventions with any purchase.  Much to Yan's surprise, people have become growingly suspicious that they are getting something that big for free.  Whadda they have to worry about?  That's what this story, The Potlatch Infestation is about.  Starring characters from Yan's The Wang graphic novels.
