Hi everyone! I just wanted to make a quick post noting that the comic will update on 4/3 this weekend instead of tomorrow, 4/2. We are up to our ears preparing for the Pittsburgh Indy Comix Expo tomorrow, and I’d rather not rush a comic page in before I try to get to bed early. We have to be on the road by 5 am tomorrow, ugh! If you’re in the Pittsburgh area, please stop in and see us! We will have books and prints, and there are tons of workshops and events going on all day. Best of all, admission is free!
Thanks for reading, and have a great weekend!
Hey there! Due to a slight miscalculation of inventory on our part, we’re not going to be at Buffalo Comicon this year since it would be kinda silly to have a table without any books to put on it! (On the plus side, that means we’ve sold a whole bunch of books!)
We are working on plans for other events later this year and in early 2016 which we plan to be at, and will be publishing an updated schedule in the very near future.
Sorry for the sudden switcheroo, but we’ll catch you sometime in the near future, Buffalo!
So if you read my last news post, you’ll know that I’ve been working like crazy lately on uh. A lot of things. This is still the case.
I wanted to have Follower live and updating last fall (oops) and due to my real job, I fell way behind on making pages for it. I’m currently working to catch up on them, which will hopefully be a bit quicker and easier when my shiny new tablet arrives sometime next week (?) to replace my 10-year-old Wacom. She lived a good life and traveled basically everywhere with me, which is certainly a testament to how sturdy the old Graphires were, but I’m starting to feel the strain in my wrist from working so much on such a small device. Doing Messenger on paper has basically spoiled me, since I’m free to draw big sweeping lines without worrying about an edge. After some research I decided to invest in one of these 10×6″ Huion tablets. Word is they perform just as well as some of the more recent Intuos tablets (which are kinda spendy if you have a budget of essentially nothing like me) and are nearly double the size of my current device, so it seems worth a shot. I’ll definitely be posting up with some kind of review once I get it, but I have pretty high hopes for it.
Now that I’ve gotten waaay off topic, basically, I’m planning to only post new Messenger pages on Saturdays until I get Follower launched. How long will this be? Probably a month or two on the short side, maybe a bit longer. The bonus is, once it’s started, I’ll have nearly a year’s worth of buffer pages for Follower which will leave me free to work on the next issue and new Messenger pages at the same time.
tl;dr Messenger is now updating only on Saturdays for a while, Follower is coming (hopefully) sooner than never.
Thanks for reading! And don’t forget to vote for Messenger to follow the new short story I’ve been posting!
