Hey everyone! It’s been a long break, but I have just enough buffer going to start Follower updates on this upcoming Wednesday, April 24! In the meantime, if you’d like to see advance pages and works-in-progress, pledge any amount to our Patreon and it’s all yours! Thanks for your patience and continued readership. See you Wednesday!
Hello readers! This is a quick update to let you know about some changes to Follower’s update schedule.
For the past few months, I’ve been dealing on and off with some wrist pain in my drawing hand that’s made completing pages on time pretty difficult. You have probably noticed this in the number of delayed and missed updates for the comic. I’ve attempted to continue drawing despite this issue but it’s becoming clear that I need to get better at giving my wrist a break, and the best way I can see to do that is to alter our update schedule a bit.
For the next 3-6 months, depending on how manageable my wrist pain is, Messenger/Follower will update on a sporadic schedule. I am undecided yet whether this means bi-weekly updates instead of weekly ones, or whether it’ll be a batch of new pages each month. Regardless, there will still be new pages – just fewer of them, temporarily.
This isn’t a change I’m making lightly, but for me it’s become a question of getting some comics done versus none at all. I’m planning to slowly work my way back up to a weekly schedule over time, and will come back better and stronger for it.
Thanks for your continued readership and support!
Follower will be taking a break for the month of November, returning to its normal schedule on December 6. Patreon posts will continue as usual and supporters will still get access to early pages and regular rewards. I am planning to use this time to finish the artwork for chapter 5, and work together with Delade on writing the script for the next chapter. I’m also hoping this will also afford me some time to catch up properly on Messenger and other projects before the end of 2017.
During the break, I’d love to put up some guest posts – including fan art, fiction, or whatever else you can come up with, as long as it’s Follower-related! Please email it to bug [at] messenger-comic.com. Don’t forget to let me know what name you’d like to be credited with, and a link to your website if you have one.
