Hey there! This update is to let you know that we are changing the public update schedule for Follower for at least the next couple of months. The comic will update bi-weekly instead of weekly. Patreon and Gumroad supporters will see no change, since I’ll still continue uploading new stuff as I work on it.
Our landlords have, unfortunately, decided to end our lease, and we are currently looking for a new place to live and trying to get our stuff sorted and packed up. This wasn’t completely unexpected, since we were planning to move sometime this year anyway, but it does move up the timeline a little bit and it is a little bit stressful. Spacing out the comic a little will help me get it drawn at a more reasonable pace and still deal with all of this stuff that needs to be dealt with.
As usual, if you want to help keep the comics going by keeping us alive and sheltered, you can subscribe to our Patreon or Gumroad! Or buy something from our shop.
If you are a creative type, and want to make any kind of drawn/written/musical/amazing fanart, I would love to display it during the “off” weeks. Send an email to bug [at] messenger-comic [dot] com if you’re interested.
Thanks again for your support and readership! It means a lot, especially during all of this nonsense.
A couple of new things this week – starting with the fact that the comic will be late this week due to, uh, circumstances. I’m doing my best to catch up as quickly as I can.
It’s time once again for the Friday Night Doodle Zone Stream! Hop onto our Twitch channel on Friday night (3/12/21 at 8 PM EST) and request a doodle. Doodles are pay-what-you-want via Ko-Fi, and the more you pay, the more detailed your drawing will be! This could work out to be awesome or hilarious, or both!
I am also tentatively re-opening commission tiers on our Patreon. The slots are limited so I don’t get overwhelmed, but if you’ve ever been interested in a commission now is a great time to get one! You can get either a black and white or colored drawing of one character for either $10 or $25 respectively.
Hey there! This week’s page is going to be a couple of days late – it’s been a week – but it’s nearly done. I also have a couple of small updates to include!
I’ve added Gumroad as a support option if you’d like to help keep Follower running! The content is essentially the same as what you’ll get on Patreon, just in a new place for those who prefer other platforms. Check it out on Gumroad for more information.
On both Patreon and Gumroad, I’ve added a new $5 tier: Books ’n Stuff! When you pledge to this tier, you’ll get access to digital copies of the Follower comics we’ve put out so far, and you’ll get access to the new ones as they’re released! Is this a ridiculous discount? It sure is! And you can get in on it anytime, along with access to a backlog of our other material!
The last update: streaming! I’ve been streaming on and off since last year, mostly reserving actual comic work for patron-only streams. I recently polled our supporters, and came to the conclusion that folks don’t mind I I take comic work to public streams, too! So now I’ll be working on upcoming comic pages during regular Twitch streams. I’m working on some new ideas for Patreon/Gumroad exclusive streams, but I’ll post more when I have a more complete plan. I’ve also created a little “vtuber” avatar to hang out and talk while I work. You can pop in and ask questions or just chat! I’d be glad for the company. Check out my Twitch for schedule stuff and subscribe while you’re there!
Thanks for reading! Look forward to the new page in the next couple of days!
