Summer Schedule Madness

Summer Schedule Madness published on No Comments on Summer Schedule Madness

It’s been sort of an unpredictable summer for us so far, so I thought it would be time for a minor schedule update. Follower is postponed-ish for this week, as I’m currently going between some extra freelance work and a bunch of comics-related, but not Follower comics-related projects with upcoming deadlines. Thankfully, all of that will be out of the way within the next few weeks. Follower will return on its regular day next week, and I’m planning to make up the missing page as soon as possible.

That said, Patreon backers will get the first look at new Follower material as it’s made. Our Patreon has converted to immediate charge, so you can pay immediately and gain access to our back catalog of rewards like wallpapers and other extras. $1 goes a long way to helping us keep making comics and is always appreciated if you like what we do!

Starting in August, I’m also going to be posting weekly #ThrowbackThursday wallpapers featuring Chios and Messenger characters. These wallpapers were originally PayPal donation rewards circa 2010, and there are at least a few that I know no one downloaded at the time, so that’s a bonus! I’ve already queued these up, and they run from the first week of August to the first week of November, and unlike regular monthly wallpapers, these will be available to all patrons pledging at least $1!

August is always a tight month for us because web hosting for the year is due, so if you enjoy Follower, Messenger, or our other comics, please consider chipping in via Patreon or Ko-Fi, or purchasing something from our shop.

There’s a new Messenger/Follower Discord! Hop in and talk about whatever. I also added special roles for Patreon backers, just for fun!

I’m hoping to move Follower up the ranks on TWC this month if I can. I have a few incentive doodles, and there’s a new one this week. Help me find new readers for the comic and give me a vote!

I also took a better look at the comic script alongside a calendar, and I can definitely leave Create a Chio commissions open longer than I originally thought. So, if you’d like to insert a custom character into my comic forever and ever, here’s your chance! I’m also thinking about making a cheaper version with fewer appearances and options, but I’m not sure anyone will care!

Thanks for reading and supporting my comics! 😀

A small bit of news if you typically read Follower via one of our mobile app mirrors: we have removed Follower from Tapastic after some changes to their terms of service. If you’d like to continue reading the comic using an app, we recommend Comic Chameleon (which helps support Follower financially!) or LINE Webtoon (which is behind schedule compared to the main site, but updates a few times a week). Both of these apps are available for both iOS and Android devices and host tons of other comics in addition to Follower! Of course, the best place to keep up is right here on the main site, but we appreciate it no matter where you read the comic.

On the topic of updates and mirror sites, since they change from time to time, here’s a current list of places to keep up with comic updates:

If the comic is ever off-schedule or you’re just wondering what’s up, those are good places to check! (Probably Twitter first.)
