Happy Holidays!

Hey everyone! It’s that time of year, and we just wanted to wish all of our readers a wonderful holiday/winter season! Wherever you are, and whatever you do (or don’t) celebrate, we hope that you’re safe, well, and having a fun and relaxing time. We’ve decided to take this week off from comic updates so we can have a small break and enjoy the holidays ourselves, but we’ve also got a few presents and surprises for you!

As a tiny gift to you, I’ve uploaded a holiday-themed wallpaper featuring Chios from Follower and Messenger! Thanks for reading our comics this year. We hope you’ll stick with us into 2016! EDIT:This artwork was also included in a totally FREE book with pieces from over 40 webcomic artists, which you can download from Gumroad!

Lastly, if you’re one of our Patreon backers, please log in and check our latest updates! We’ve posted a very special gift for you as well, but it’ll expire on the last day of the month, so be sure to hurry!

Thank you again for your readership and support, and have a wonderful and happy season!

Since today’s page is now live, I’ve added a version of Dr. Calway’s phone wallpaper to the downloads page! It’s large enough to be used as a background on just about any smartphone or tablet.

For the first time in forever and a half, there’s a new vote incentive image! Give Follower a vote and check it out.

Follower was featured this week on Prettycoolwebcomics, a tumblog that does quick features and reviews on. Well. Pretty cool webcomics! We were thrilled to hear such positive words about our work, and we hope you’ll check out PCW and give them a follow/reblog. Here’s a quote:

A pitfall of a lot of prequel works is that they focus on the “how we got here” without actually trying to tell a story on its own; it’s one of the big reasons why those Star Wars prequels were such a big mess. But while I haven’t had the chance to read Messenger yet, Follower appears to be a solid tale in its own merits, and even if the story might have a foregone conclusion there’s an entirely new cast to help the reader see a full story and character arcs in their own right.

Please check out the rest of the post over here on Prettycoolwebcomics!

This week, we also created a new page for brand-new readers, called (unremarkably) New Readers. There are some cute illustrations to walk you through the basics of the story, and it might be an ideal link to send to friends you want to share the comic with! (Hint, hint.) 

Patreon reward: Dia diiiiive!

There were also several updates for Patreon subscribers this week! For ALL patrons, the February sketchbook PDF is now up for download! This month’s sketchbook is all about what survived on the wasteland, and what life is like there. It was a fun opportunity to try out some new painting techniques, and I’m excited to share it with you.

For $2+ patrons, the new wallpaper image is available – you can see a small snippet above! It features Dia performing a DIA DIIIIIIIIIIVE~

Lastly, one of the things Delade and I are plotting/planning/theorizing is the possibility of a mini podcast type recording, after the end of Chapter 2, which is coming up faster than either of us can believe! We were hoping to take questions about the story, how we make the comic, or pretty much anything you feel like listening to us talk at length about. It’s still just an idea, but if you have any questions or suggestions for what you’d like to hear, give a reply!

Don’t forget, we’ll be appearing this weekend at FubukiCon in Amherst, NY at Daemen College. If you’re in the area, please stop by and say hello! We will have books, buttons, sketches, and other stuff.

Thank you for reading and for your continued support! See you next week for the latest!
