Hey there! It’s almost the end of the year already, somehow! Just in case you missed it, we (and Follower) are taking a break until the start of 2021. We need a bit more time to get the next chapter ready to go and take a little break after pushing through the last few months. If you’d like to see the first bits of the next chapter early, please support us on Patreon! You’ll get access to new pages as they’re completed, as well as patron-only livestreams other behind the scenes stuff. You’ll also help us continue to survive the pandemic! It’s been a rough year for everyone, and we’re starting to feel it. Between my surgery back at the start of the pandemic, and our cat’s surprise visit to the emergency vet a few weeks ago, things are a little tight around here. Your support is always appreciated to help us keep going and making more comics.
For other ways to help support Follower, you can always make a one-time contribution to our Ko-Fi (and get a wallpaper download in return) or just give us a vote on TopWebComics to help us find more new readers!
In other news, the shop has been updated! You can now get physical copies of Follower chapters one and two, as well as a couple of zines I created artwork for. There are also the usual stickers and shirts, but why not check it out?
Thanks for reading Follower for another year, and we look forward to continuing the story in January!
It’s been sort of an unpredictable summer for us so far, so I thought it would be time for a minor schedule update. Follower is postponed-ish for this week, as I’m currently going between some extra freelance work and a bunch of comics-related, but not Follower comics-related projects with upcoming deadlines. Thankfully, all of that will be out of the way within the next few weeks. Follower will return on its regular day next week, and I’m planning to make up the missing page as soon as possible.
That said, Patreon backers will get the first look at new Follower material as it’s made. Our Patreon has converted to immediate charge, so you can pay immediately and gain access to our back catalog of rewards like wallpapers and other extras. $1 goes a long way to helping us keep making comics and is always appreciated if you like what we do!
Starting in August, I’m also going to be posting weekly #ThrowbackThursday wallpapers featuring Chios and Messenger characters. These wallpapers were originally PayPal donation rewards circa 2010, and there are at least a few that I know no one downloaded at the time, so that’s a bonus! I’ve already queued these up, and they run from the first week of August to the first week of November, and unlike regular monthly wallpapers, these will be available to all patrons pledging at least $1!
August is always a tight month for us because web hosting for the year is due, so if you enjoy Follower, Messenger, or our other comics, please consider chipping in via Patreon or Ko-Fi, or purchasing something from our shop.
