Hey there! We’re planning to do a mini-podcast where we answer your questions about Chios, comics, and everything! Since making comics is a joint effort for us, we thought it might be simpler and more fun to answer reader questions in the form of an audio podcast so you get both of our points of view. If all goes well, we’re hoping to do these once a chapter or so.
Ask your questions using this form, and be sure to watch for Chio Chat!
So in case you missed it, Chapter Twelve concluded last weekend with a double update!
Chapter Thirteen will begin next weekend. I am in the process of revising and finalizing the script, along with Delade’s help, since I want to be sure it’s just right before I get to work, and that everything jives along with what we have planned for Follower correctly.
Working on two comics in completely different media has been a very interesting learning experience, and I’m trying to figure out the best way to keep everything updated on a regular schedule. I am considering updating Messenger in the future not on a weekly basis, but in batches of pages every few weeks as I complete them. The process kind of lends itself well to working on several pages together, rather than doing just one at a time. This also seems like it might be a more satisfying reading experience, too! If you have any input, don’t hesitate to leave a comment!
We are currently working on our fall plans for convention appearances. So far our only solid plan is Buffalo Comicon in October, pending more information from the organizers. If you would like to help us have more flexibility in the conventions we’re able to attend, consider supporting our Patreon for rewards and extras, or chip in a one-time tip via Square Cash!
As always, thank you for your continued readership and support! See you next Saturday for the start of Chapter Thirteen!
We will be at UBCon this weekend in Amherst, NY! Please stop by and see us in the Artist’s Alley. We will have books, mini comics, prints, buttons, and other stuff! Hope to see you there!
We are excited to announce (for real this time) that we will be making our first ever convention appearance at Fubuki-Con, a small anime convention taking place at Daemen College in Amherst New York from Saturday, March 14th to Sunday, March 15th! Delade and I will be in the Artist’s Alley with as much Follower and Messenger stuff as we can carry! I’m planning on doing quick commissions on the spot, and will hopefully have some other minicomics and zines for purchase as well.
Keep a lookout for our fancy table banner:
If you’ll be in the area during the weekend, please stop by! We’d love to meet you! (And maybe trade Pokemon!)
We are still waiting for more information, but this may be just the first of a few appearances we’ll be making this year!
The January Sketchbook is now up, and so is the February Wallpaper-of-the-Month Club wallpaper! It features Dr. Calway and Dr. Wolzarski doing science, when something unexpected happens. I have also been posting other goodies for patrons, including more process videos about how Follower gets made, as well as the January sketchbook, featuring scenes from life in the Chio Village!
Patreon support helps me keep making the comic while still being able to eat, and you get cool rewards in exchange! Please consider contributing if you enjoy reading Follower.
