Hey there! It’s another off-week update. Follower’s next update will be on July 7. Until then, here’s what’s up!
Items in my Society6 shop are currently on sale. This includes all kinds of stuff including shirts, stickers, mugs, phone cases, bags, and a lot more.
I’ve been doing some behind-the-scenes work on Follower-related stuff, and more and more it seems like time to make some upgrades to the website. You may have noticed that since chapter 7 started, I’ve been uploading pages at a much larger size and higher quality. I’d love to be able to make the time to go back and do the same for older pages, but it’s a time consuming process that will take at least a few hours over a month or so to complete.
In order to make this possible, I’ve set a Patreon goal of $100 to essentially buy my time away from other tasks so I can focus on making changes and updates to the site. We’re already past 25% of the way to that goal, so if you’d like to read the comic at higher quality, please consider pledging! There are a bunch of different rewards, but the best one in my opinion is early access to new pages and works in progress. That way you can see what’s coming up in the story before anyone else!
It’s a non-update week this week, so I just thought I’d post a reminder so no one thinks we’ve given up on Follower! Dia wouldn’t allow it. Anyway. Follower will update next week on June 9th, and you can get early access to upcoming pages by becoming a Chio Club member through Patreon or Gumroad! Your support helps keep the comic going, especially right now when we are in a crunch to find a new place to live.
If you’d like a quicker way to get comic updates, you can have them delivered directly to your email when you sign up for our newsletter, and if you join the Radio Chio Newsletter you’ll also get bonus freebies each month! This month’s is a cute wallpaper download featuring Dia.
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.
