Hey there! This update is to let you know that we are changing the public update schedule for Follower for at least the next couple of months. The comic will update bi-weekly instead of weekly. Patreon and Gumroad supporters will see no change, since I’ll still continue uploading new stuff as I work on it.
Our landlords have, unfortunately, decided to end our lease, and we are currently looking for a new place to live and trying to get our stuff sorted and packed up. This wasn’t completely unexpected, since we were planning to move sometime this year anyway, but it does move up the timeline a little bit and it is a little bit stressful. Spacing out the comic a little will help me get it drawn at a more reasonable pace and still deal with all of this stuff that needs to be dealt with.
As usual, if you want to help keep the comics going by keeping us alive and sheltered, you can subscribe to our Patreon or Gumroad! Or buy something from our shop.
If you are a creative type, and want to make any kind of drawn/written/musical/amazing fanart, I would love to display it during the “off” weeks. Send an email to bug [at] messenger-comic [dot] com if you’re interested.
Thanks again for your support and readership! It means a lot, especially during all of this nonsense.
A couple of new things this week – starting with the fact that the comic will be late this week due to, uh, circumstances. I’m doing my best to catch up as quickly as I can.
It’s time once again for the Friday Night Doodle Zone Stream! Hop onto our Twitch channel on Friday night (3/12/21 at 8 PM EST) and request a doodle. Doodles are pay-what-you-want via Ko-Fi, and the more you pay, the more detailed your drawing will be! This could work out to be awesome or hilarious, or both!
I am also tentatively re-opening commission tiers on our Patreon. The slots are limited so I don’t get overwhelmed, but if you’ve ever been interested in a commission now is a great time to get one! You can get either a black and white or colored drawing of one character for either $10 or $25 respectively.
Some things have been going on this past week, which look like they’re threatening to go into next week and beyond. I am exhausted and have barely had time to look at the next upcoming page. Here’s a very condensed version of things.
In short: the raccoon has been safely removed, we have been blamed for inviting (?????) the raccoon into our home, and the threat of eviction remains very real. During a global pandemic. That Delade and I have spent the past year doing everything within our power to avoid catching. Anyway, I feel like screaming, and if you’d like to help us get out of this situation dealing with people who are absolutely bonkers (“wacky,” to use the term of my mental health professional), I’ve started a moving fund on our Ko-Fi. Buying comics on Gumroad or subscribing to our Patreon helps, too.
