Ask A Chio Returns!

This week’s update ends Follower Chapter Seven! Thank you for reading all this way with us! Before we start Chapter Eight, we’ll be taking a short two-week break to make sure everything is ready for the next chapter. But that doesn’t mean there won’t be anything here to see!

Before we begin the new chapter, we wanted to try something different… To fill in the gap between chapters, we’re offering a limited round of Ask a Chio Q&A spots! Whether you’re supporting us via Patreon, Ko-Fi, or Gumroad, all Chio Club members who are pledging $5 or more as of January 23 will be eligible to Ask a Chio anything, and get a guaranteed answer! This offer ends on February 5!

What’s Ask a Chio? It used to be an ask blog I ran on Tumblr for a couple of years, before it became challenging to balance with regular comic work. But I think it would be fun to try and bring it back on a limited basis. I’ve slowly been adding Ask a Chio answers to Radiochio.com for fun, and it would be great to have some new answers to add to the classic ones. 

What can you ask a Chio? Nearly anything, so long as it’s SFW. Just bear in mind that Chios’ knowledge of the world is limited to certain areas, so you might get interesting answers… You can direct a question to a particular Chio, or you can just ask a general question and see who shows up to answer it. 

Again, thank you for continuing to read and support our comic! Hopefully we’ll see what kinds of things the Chios get asked!

Still feeling hype for Chapter 8? So are we! Check out this post to see how you can create a character to cameo in the next chapter. Follower will resume on February 9! See you then!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! We hope that wherever you are, you’re enjoying a good meal with people you love to be with.
All through this week, all of our digital comics (and almost all of our other merch) is on sale, so it’s a good time to stock up on cheap comics to read after you wake up from your food coma. Check out this post to get ‘em!

Chio Club Update: New Goals!

Chio Club Update: New Goals! published on No Comments on Chio Club Update: New Goals!

Hey there! This is a post for everyone to talk about what we’re hoping to achieve with some new Chio Club goals. If you enjoy Follower, please take a peek at this post to see some of what we’ve got in store! If you don’t know what the Chio Club is, you can find out more about it on this page.

What we want to do

Basically: we want to improve the websites that Messenger and Follower live on. They’ve been the same for quite a few years, and could use some upgrades both visually and functionally. In addition to this, most of the earlier chapters’ pages were posted at a lower resolution and smaller size. We want to modernize the sites, and add bigger, clearer, higher-resolution pages for your reading enjoyment.

Just an example of how much bigger we’ll be able to make the new pages with these changes! The rest of the site will get a facelift, too.

So what’s the goal change?

The change is, that in addition to our previous goal of just updating the websites, it seems feasible to do some other small art tweaks to the comic pages while we’re in the process of re-exporting them at a bigger, better size. Most of these changes will include re-lettering, so that everything is cohesive through the whole comic. Some artwork might get tweaked a little to make it look nicer, especially on old pages. Small adjustments here and there throughout.

Why?

Well, why not? Time-wise, it seems reasonable to accomplish all of these things together, and it also puts us just a little closer to another long-term goal of ours: collecting Follower into a Volume 1 book, complete with side stories and other extras.

How do we get there?

I’ve set the bar at $100/month in total Chio Club pledges to be able to start this project, and we’re already about a third of the way there. You can follow the progress of this goal at the top of the Follower site, on the Chio Club page, our Patreon page, or our Ko-Fi page. (Gumroad doesn’t have a way to display this easily.)

All you have to do is pledge an amount of your choosing via one of the Chio Club sites – Patreon, Ko-Fi, or Gumroad. In return, you’ll get advance access to new comic pages, works in progress as they’re made, and depending on your pledge level, things like comic PDFs and other rewards.

It’s really high time to bring the Messenger and Follower sites into the current century, and make everything a little more accessible and readable. You can make it happen just by joining the Chio Club!
