Sketch Wednesday: Victoruvian Victor

Sketch Wednesday: Victoruvian Victor published on No Comments on Sketch Wednesday: Victoruvian Victor

It’s Sketch Wednesday again! This week’s vote landed on everyone’s favorite hologram, Victor! So I gave it a sketchy spin and turned him into Victoruvian Victor. What do you think?

This week, instead of posting a poll to pick a character, I’m opening up to suggestions in the comments! Leave a comment with which character you’d like to see in the next Sketch Wednesday!

Since it’s the start of a new month it would be super helpful if you gave us a vote on TWC! It would be amazing to get back into the top 100!! And you get a look at the next page, so, bonus.

P.S. If you enjoy Follower and our other content, please check out our current goal to get to $100/month in support! Here’s a post explaining what we’re trying to do! (Plus if the counter at the top of the page moves up, who knows what Dia will do next…)

Off-week News Bits!

Off-week News Bits! published on No Comments on Off-week News Bits!

Hey there! It’s another Follower break week, but I’ve still got a few things to share with you.

In addition to our email updates, I’m testing out some mirror sites to try and find more new readers. That means Follower is updating in “reruns” on ComicFury and The Duck, in addition to Webtoons! If you use any of those sites, feel free to give us a follow and a rating!

If you’d like to get a peek at what’s coming next week for Follower, please give us a vote on TopWebComics! You can vote for us once per day, and it helps us find new readers by moving our banner toward the front page of TWC, a place where people are specifically looking for comics to read!

Lastly, if you’re looking for a place to theorize about what’s to come, join our Discord! We’re always happy to see a new face in the group.

Thanks for reading, and see you back here on June 23 with a new page!

2013 Ursa Major Awards Nominations

2013 Ursa Major Awards Nominations published on

The nominations for the 2013 Ursa Major Awards are now open, and this year I’m hoping to see Messenger and Follower nominated in either of the Best Graphic Story or Best Other Literary Work categories! The Ursa Major Awards are, as written on their site:

More formally known as the Annual Anthropomorphic Literature and Arts Award, the Ursa Major Award is presented annually for excellence in the furry arts. It is intended as Anthropomorphic (a.k.a. Furry) Fandom’s equivalent of the Hugo Award® presented by the World Science Fiction Society, mystery fandom’s Anthony Award, horror fandom’s Bram Stoker Award, and so forth. Anyone may nominate and vote for candidates for the Awards. These Awards are decided by the fans, not by a committee.

I feel that both Messenger and especially Follower qualify for these awards due to the Chio storylines in both comics. Although I don’t identify as someone in the furry fandom, I know a lot of my readers do — and being nominated could help the comics reach a new audience. While I don’t think I stand much of a chance competing against some really big webcomics as have been nominated (and won) in the past, even being nominated would be a huge honor, and help both Messenger and Follower become more known. Seeing Follower nominated would be a huge boost for us since the comic is so new.

How can you help? Visit the Ursa Major Awards site and click “nominations page,” and then either enroll to register or login if you’ve registered before. Then, add Messenger and Follower under Best Graphic Story and/or Best Other Literary Work. For clarity, you may want to submit the comics both by name with their URL, so there is no confusion – for example, “Follower – https://follower.messenger-comic.com”. Submit the form, and you’re done! It’s easy. You can (and should!) nominate other comics and media you enjoy for the other categories, as well. You can even nominate multiple things for the same category, if you like.

What’s next? The nomination period is open through February 28th. After that, if the comics were successfully nominated, you can then start voting for real on them!

If we can make it into the nominations category, I’ll come up with some kind of small reward comic. If we can get even further than that, I’ll have to think of something bigger!

As always, I appreciate your ongoing support. Thanks for reading my comics!
