After having to put off work on it approximately one million times, issue 3 is almost complete and is now available for preorder on Gumroad! The digital edition includes 54 pages of remastered comics, including the 7-page bonus story, “Home,” about Captain Bash and his family connection to Project Cottontail. The refreshed pages in this book will appear on the site later this year.
The digital version of issue 3 releases on July 22, 2020 and will be in print in the near future! Preorder now and receive the download automatically on release.
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.
