And that’s it for chapter seven! Thank you for reading this far! We’ve got a lot more coming in chapter eight, which will begin on February 9.
If you join the Chio Club, you’ll get an early look at what’s to come. You’ll also get the opportunity to get an Ask a Chio question answered if you’re pledged at $5 or more! Find out more about that in this blog post.
There are also still slots left for Create a Chio cameos! Create your own Chio character and they’ll appear in chapter eight! More on that can be found in this blog post!
And last but not least, keep updated on what’s new with the comic by joining our Discord or subscribing to email updates!
Thanks again for reading so far, and we’ll be back soon with the next part of the story.
This week’s update ends Follower Chapter Seven! Thank you for reading all this way with us! Before we start Chapter Eight, we’ll be taking a short two-week break to make sure everything is ready for the next chapter. But that doesn’t mean there won’t be anything here to see!
Before we begin the new chapter, we wanted to try something different… To fill in the gap between chapters, we’re offering a limited round of Ask a Chio Q&A spots! Whether you’re supporting us via Patreon, Ko-Fi, or Gumroad, all Chio Club members who are pledging $5 or more as of January 23 will be eligible to Ask a Chio anything, and get a guaranteed answer! This offer ends on February 5!
What’s Ask a Chio? It used to be an ask blog I ran on Tumblr for a couple of years, before it became challenging to balance with regular comic work. But I think it would be fun to try and bring it back on a limited basis. I’ve slowly been adding Ask a Chio answers to Radiochio.com for fun, and it would be great to have some new answers to add to the classic ones.
What can you ask a Chio? Nearly anything, so long as it’s SFW. Just bear in mind that Chios’ knowledge of the world is limited to certain areas, so you might get interesting answers… You can direct a question to a particular Chio, or you can just ask a general question and see who shows up to answer it.
Again, thank you for continuing to read and support our comic! Hopefully we’ll see what kinds of things the Chios get asked!

Still feeling hype for Chapter 8? So are we! Check out this post to see how you can create a character to cameo in the next chapter. Follower will resume on February 9! See you then!
First Sketch Wednesday of 2022! And maybe one of the last! There is one more page of chapter 7 left to go and then we’re possibly taking a week or two off to finish prep for 8. The plan is to move back to a regular weekly update schedule, so we’ll see how it goes! Come join the Chio Club to get an early look at what’s to come.
Chapter 8 of Follower is coming up soon, and there’s a new opportunity for you to join the ranks of the Cottontail Base Vloxen Geneticists and create your own Chio to cameo in the new chapter!
Commissions for custom Chio characters are now open on our Ko-Fi page and as a new tier on our Patreon! You’ll be able to customize your character’s name, fur, hair, and eye color, hairstyle, and personality, and I’ll work with you to come up with a character that’ll fit into the world of the comic. A short version of your character’s bio will be added to the cast page with a link to where to find them. You’ll also receive a full-body illustration of your character with reference data, as shown below!
When you become a Vloxen geneticist, you’ll also get special access to the Cottontail Base section of our Discord so you can discuss your upcoming cameo Chios in secret! You can also hang out in the regular parts of our Discord over here!
The base price for a cameo Chio is $50 for a single-page appearance, but for $150 your character will appear on at least 3 pages with the possibility of a speaking part. (Speaking parts are limited.) These commissions will close near the end of February to ensure there is time to design the character and get them into the comic!
For more details and terms, check out the commissions page on our Ko-Fi!
