Hey! This is just a quick update to let you know that Follower will not update as usual this week, but will update next week on March 9 instead. I had a small family emergency to deal with last night, and it looks like I will be doing some running around in the next few days as well. I did get some work done on the new page, and will be working over the course of the week, but I need a break, too.
When it’s done or close to done, it’ll go up early for Chio Club members. Join us on Ko-Fi or Patreon to get early pages!
Thanks for reading, and see you back here next week for the next page!
This post was updated on 1/25 to clarify the dates this offer is available.
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 through February 5 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!
Chapter Seven is now complete! You can read it early by becoming a member of the Chio Club. All you have to do is pledge the amount of your choice through one of the sites linked on our Support page (including Patreon, Ko-Fi, or Gumroad) and you’ll get instant early access to the next 6 pages of the comic. You’ll also get early access to Chapter Eight as we work on it! Chapter Eight will begin in early 2022. Follower will remain on a bi-weekly schedule for the remainder of Chapter Seven, with Sketch Wednesday happening in between. Anyone can vote for the next Sketch Wednesday art!
As another option to read the ending of Chapter Seven early, you can also buy or rent access to the entire chapter through Dillyhub! This is a new option we are testing, and to help it succeed if you join our Discord this weekend (7/29-7/31) and are one of the first three people to ask nicely, I’ll send you a code worth 10 Dillyhub coins, or in other words, enough coins to access all of Chapter Seven!
Thank you for continuing to read and support our work. The past few months (and year, let’s be honest) have been exceptionally hard so I am extra proud to have finished this chapter. I hope you enjoy it, and all that’s to come!
