It’s a non-update week this week, so I just thought I’d post a reminder so no one thinks we’ve given up on Follower! Dia wouldn’t allow it. Anyway. Follower will update next week on June 9th, and you can get early access to upcoming pages by becoming a Chio Club member through Patreon or Gumroad! Your support helps keep the comic going, especially right now when we are in a crunch to find a new place to live.
If you’d like a quicker way to get comic updates, you can have them delivered directly to your email when you sign up for our newsletter, and if you join the Radio Chio Newsletter you’ll also get bonus freebies each month! This month’s is a cute wallpaper download featuring Dia.
That’s all we’ve got for now. Thanks for reading!
In case you missed it – I announced a few days ago that we’re now using Flattr – a new way for creators like us to get support for their work. You can find out more about that here!
In addition to adding Flattr support to our comics, we’re also pleased to announce something new – The Chio Club!
The Chio Club is a new way to support Messenger, Follower, and our other creative projects through a monthly subscription membership. You’ll get early access to comics and other works in progress, discounted commissions, and membership to our private supporters-only Discord group. You can pick and choose what kinds of rewards you’d like and “pledge” the amount of your choice in monthly or yearly increments.
Yes, this news does come on the heels of Patreon’s new fee changes. We polled our existing patron base and got mixed feedback – some people didn’t mind the change, and some were ready to move on from Patreon – so rather than make a drastic change all at once we’ve decided to simply offer more ways to support us, so you can still get access to the same rewards at the same price, just using a different method.
The Chio Club is still a bit of a work in progress, and we are planning to offer more rewards in time, so keep an eye on our shiny new Support page or subscribe to our newsletter to keep up with the latest!
