Okay so, here’s the deal.
I am tired of having to put off starting Follower due to whatever pitfall I’m currently in. I don’t have the print version ready as planned, but I don’t want to delay launching the comic any longer. So! We’re now planning to just start the comic and have the print version ready to go by the end of the summer, which is far more realistic.
Follower will begin updating on Wednesday, July 24 and will update on Wednesdays for the foreseeable future.
Hi again! It seemed like a good time to make an update on what’s going on with the comic, since some things have been happening behind the scenes.
Right now it looks like everything is all set to launch sometime in mid-to-late June. I’ve got the majority of the pages drawn up and I’m basically working on coloring them at this point. We still plan on launching with the print version available at the same time, so you can cheat and get ahead if you want. It’s been my goal from day one to make the book very affordable, so if I’ve done my math right, it should be around (or a bit less than) $10 USD. (This isn’t a guarantee; just an early estimate. Hopefully I’m right, though.) I’m also looking into a digital version which will be even less, but that’s another project. The book will contain the full first issue of the comic, along with bonus content that I’ll tell you more about once it’s closer to being a reality. Online, the comic will update with a new page every week for free – you’ll only miss out on the bonus stuff, which won’t be necessary to follow the regular story. So basically, you can read for free online, or cheat and get ahead by getting a copy of the book.
Once I’ve got more work done, I’ll probably start posting some little previews and stuff, but in the meantime I’m just working away.
Thanks for sticking with us, and we’ll see you in June! (If not sooner.)
I know there’s been some radio silence here for quite a while, so I wanted to post an update on what the deal is with Follower. I wrote two small updates over on Messenger (here and here) to talk about what’s going on with the comics lately, which will be a better explanation for what’s been up.
In short, no, we haven’t given up on Follower. Real life (my job) has been a huge pain in getting things done on a schedule I’m happy with. So the current plan is to cut Messenger down to one page per week until I have the first issue of Follower completed. This is way more manageable.
The plan for Follower is still to release the book alongside the start of the comic online, and we’ve planned some neat extras to include in the print version. Hopefully I can get it together in the next month or two, if all goes well.
In the meantime, why not give Messenger a re-read, and come visit us on the MonsterHive forums?
Thanks for your patience, and see you soon!
