If you’ve ever wanted to grab a copy of Follower issue 1, now might be the best time ever! We’ve submitted it to the Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality on itch.io, and for $5 you will get a copy, along with over 1600 other games/resources/comics/whatsits. All proceeds will be donated to the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund and Community Bail Fund split 50/50.
2020 has just been a ridiculous year so far. Although Follower has been on a hiatus for a while, I had planned on posting a batch of update pages pretty soon. Unfortunately, my body had other plans for me and I’m going to have to extend the hiatus just a little more. I haven’t been feeling well for a while, and it turns out I’m going to need surgery within the next couple of weeks. It’s not that major, but it is a little stressful to think about on top of not feeling so great, and I expect to take a little time afterward to get back to 100%.
At this point, I’m planning to get back to posting new Follower pages sometime mid to late July, although this could change depending on how everything goes. Meanwhile, I’m working on revising pages from chapter three so I can finally, finally, finally finish the book I’ve been constantly having to put down due to Life Reasons. These revised pages are going up on Patreon as I complete small batches, so be sure to subscribe there if you’d like an early look!
In the meantime, if anyone out there wants to do any kind of Follower-related creative thing – comics, drawings, stories, whatever – I’ll happily post it here on the site and link to you. Just email me at bug [at] messenger-comic [dot] com with the relevant info.
As usual, thanks for sticking by us during these strange (and getting stranger) times. Looking forward to feeling better and getting back on the comics wagon.
Threadless is currently donating proceeds from their new face masks to MedShare, and I’m participating! I’ve uploaded a few different Chio-related designs, and more!
Comic updates are on the way, but I’m continuing with the update break until May. There will be a new batch of pages then!
