Hiatus update & Guest art opportunity

Hiatus update & Guest art opportunity published on No Comments on Hiatus update & Guest art opportunity

2020 has just been a ridiculous year so far. Although Follower has been on a hiatus for a while, I had planned on posting a batch of update pages pretty soon. Unfortunately, my body had other plans for me and I’m going to have to extend the hiatus just a little more. I haven’t been feeling well for a while, and it turns out I’m going to need surgery within the next couple of weeks. It’s not that major, but it is a little stressful to think about on top of not feeling so great, and I expect to take a little time afterward to get back to 100%.  

At this point, I’m planning to get back to posting new Follower pages sometime mid to late July, although this could change depending on how everything goes. Meanwhile, I’m working on revising pages from chapter three so I can finally, finally, finally finish the book I’ve been constantly having to put down due to Life Reasons. These revised pages are going up on Patreon as I complete small batches, so be sure to subscribe there if you’d like an early look!

In the meantime, if anyone out there wants to do any kind of Follower-related creative thing – comics, drawings, stories, whatever – I’ll happily post it here on the site and link to you. Just email me at bug [at] messenger-comic [dot] com with the relevant info. 

As usual, thanks for sticking by us during these strange (and getting stranger) times. Looking forward to feeling better and getting back on the comics wagon.

Threadless is currently donating proceeds from their new face masks to MedShare, and I’m participating! I’ve uploaded a few different Chio-related designs, and more!

Check out all the designs here!

Comic updates are on the way, but I’m continuing with the update break until May. There will be a new batch of pages then!

February News & Updates

February News & Updates published on No Comments on February News & Updates

Hey readers! I’m making some changes to the comic update schedule, and to our Patreon. 

As I’ve written about in the past, I deal with wrist pain problems from time to time but they’ve definitely flared up more than normal lately. This has been a problem for making comics, since I need my wrists for the entire process.

In order to (hopefully) give myself more of a resting break, I’m moving to a looser update schedule. Instead of trying to keep up with weekly pages, I’m going to release multiple pages every few months. This way I won’t always be working on next week’s page, and can spread the work out more, with better breaks between.

This also means a few changes to the Patreon. I’m going to be cutting down the number and type of pledge tiers and moving to more of a tip jar format. $2+ pledges will get access to the wallpaper archive, but moving forward the majority of patron-only posts will be pages in progress and behind the scenes material. 

All of these changes will take place starting in March, so if you’re a current patron and want to change your pledge, you’ve got a bit of time to do so. 

The best way to receive updates from here out will be through Patreon, Twitter, or by signing up for our email list and getting them delivered straight to you. 

I’ve had to think long and hard about doing this, but I really think it will be the greatest benefit to the comic (and me) in the long run. 

Thanks for your support and readership over all these years. I’m not done yet, so stay tuned!
