About Follower

New reader? Start here!

Follower is a free to read long-running apocalyptic sci-fi webcomic created by Bug and Delade. It is a prequel webcomic to Messenger, but both stories are designed to be read individually. Described as “sci-fi action drama with hints of furry” by The Duck Webcomics, Follower is the story of an alternate present day leading to a dystopian reality told in fully colored, stylized comic artwork. If you enjoy the genetic experimentation conundrums of Jurassic Park, or twisting military storylines of Metal Gear Solid, you may enjoy Follower. Follower is intended for readers of teen and young adult fiction and up.

The story features some violence, language, and occasionally death as well, and is best suited for readers age 13 and up. If you’re unsure about reading a story that has these themes, you should probably ask your parents first.

Follower is the winner for 2022 Best Anthropomorphic Comic in the Drunk Duck Awards.

Follower has a fan-edited wiki on TVTropes. You can join and contribute!

About the Creators

About The Writer:

Striking from a hidden base, Delade has won his first battle in the publishing world by writing for his first webcomic, Follower. He is a big space and science geek, and loves talking about the latest advancements in aerospace and astronomical discoveries when he’s not writing or catching up on books or games.

About the Artist:

Bugbyte, still hotly debated to be “maybe-an-AI-maybe-not-an-AI”, has worked on Messenger and Follower for the past ten years since her installation and deployment, along with other comics. She loves video games involving monsters, and is looking forward to adding even more marathon medals to her stack of three. Oh, and she loves cats. Bug has been featured in the Creator Spotlight Series on Your WebcomicsBug has a Twitter.
