Hey comic readers! It’s Monday again, and that means another new page. So Annabelle is a Messenger. Just how many of these people are there? And why should Aki care? Stay tuned!
Summer is already halfway over (what is this nonsense? where did the time go?) and unfortunately for me, that means that my webhosting bill is coming up a couple of weeks from now. I’ve spent most of the summer in-between freelance jobs and searching for a more permanent job, but that’s all still in the process and I haven’t landed anything just yet. (Though I’m crossing my fingers, for sure.) Though I’ve made a little bit from running advertising on the site, I’m still a decent way off from what I need.
So I propose this: If I round down the cost to $100, and can collect that in donations or commissions by August 13, I will update twice a week for the whole month of September, Mondays and Wednesdays. Also, if you donate $10 or more, I’ll draw a digital sketch for you of the character of your choice, so it’s kind of like a dirt cheap commission. I’m currently working on a new donation wallpaper that will be up in the next few days, and anyone who donates any amount will receive that, at least. I hate having to do something like this but I’m straight up out of options at this point. :/
If you can’t help out by donating, you can always help out by putting up a flyer, voting, or telling your friends about the comic! (Especially if they’re interested in cheap commissions!) Hopefully I’ll be able to get my hosting taken care of, but if not I’ll try to find some other way to keep the comic online. The domain name is paid up through January, at least, so messenger-comic.com will always link to wherever the comic happens to wind up. I’m hoping to avoid moving everything, especially after all the work I’ve put into the site lately, but I’ll just have to cross my fingers on this one.
Webcomic Book Club
In other notes, I’m participating in a “Webcomic Book Club” that’s been set up by some of the members of the Palace in the Sky Collective, which I am a part of. We’re taking reading through participants’ archives and writing about what we’ve read every two weeks or so to spread the word about all our comics as a group effort. I’m planning to post my notes with my regular updates for the next few weeks as we roll along, and at some point Messenger will be up for reading as well. This week’s comic is Footloose by Alice Nuttall and Emily Brady. Footloose is a fantasy webcomic with a little bit of a twist on the typical kinds of characters and scenarios you see in most fantasy stories.
