That’s right! Starting on August 3, Messenger will return with new weekly pages! But if you pledge any amount to our Patreon, you can start seeing new pages as early as today! In return, you’ll get your choice of rewards, including a huge backlog of bonus material. Support us on Patreon!
In case you missed it, I’ve also started weekly streams of comic work on Twitch, usually on Mondays and Tuesdays. Follow my channel to get notifications of when I’m live!
I’m planning to start a weekly stream while I work on Messenger pages! Usually this will be Monday nights (eastern time). You can follow me on Twitch to get notified when I go live: https://www.twitch.tv/radiochio
I think I’m going to call it Messenger Mondays, but I haven’t got a clever name for Tuesday yet. Any ideas?
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!
