In the lead up to Messenger’s return this August, I’ve started posting new pages weekly for everyone on Patreon. If you pledge as little as $1, you can check out new stuff as it’s posted. I’ve also been streaming some work on the new pages on Mondays on Twitch – follow Radiochio for stream updates!
In other minor news, I added a new page for anyone who wants a quick refresher on the story so far without re-reading the entire archive. Check out The Story So Far!
You can also join in on the Discord to talk all things Messenger/Follower!
That’s all I’ve got for now. Thanks for reading!
Hello readers! This is a quick update to let you know about some changes to Messenger’s update schedule.
For the past few months, I’ve been dealing on and off with some wrist pain in my drawing hand that’s made completing pages on time pretty difficult. You have probably noticed this in the number of delayed and missed updates for the comic. I’ve attempted to continue drawing despite this issue but it’s becoming clear that I need to get better at giving my wrist a break, and the best way I can see to do that is to alter our update schedule a bit.
For the next 3-6 months, depending on how manageable my wrist pain is, Messenger/Follower will update on a sporadic schedule. I am undecided yet whether this means bi-weekly updates instead of weekly ones, or whether it’ll be a batch of new pages each month. Regardless, there will still be new pages – just fewer of them, temporarily.
This isn’t a change I’m making lightly, but for me it’s become a question of getting some comics done versus none at all. I’m planning to slowly work my way back up to a weekly schedule over time, and will come back better and stronger for it.
Thanks for your continued readership and support!
Hi there! Due to some unexpected real-life goings-on, Follower & Messenger have gotten a little off track! I sat down with my planning notes and a list of everything I need to finish for various upcoming deadlines and made a plan.
The short of it is, Messenger will resume regular updates on August 6, 2016.
The long version is, I have a host of deadlines for small (but exciting!) anthology projects coming up quickly, and I want to knock those out of the way so I can focus on regular comics again. Patreon reward art is a priority of course, and Patreon backers will also continue to get in-progress comic updates as I work through all this stuff.
In the meantime, if you’d like to contribute any kind of fan art or fiction in this unplanned break, I’d love to show it off here on the site. Link me to wherever you’ve posted it, or send me a note at: bug at messenger-comic dot com.
Thank you very much for your patience while I sort through all this stuff, and we’ll be back and better than ever in just a couple of weeks!
