Stuff to Listen to! (Update: With Audition Information!

Stuff to Listen to! (Update: With Audition Information! published on No Comments on Stuff to Listen to! (Update: With Audition Information!

Open your ears! We have a couple of new comic-related audio things for your listening enjoyment!

The first comes from Jacinto and a few Follower readers, who surprised us recently with the beginnings of a Follower radio play! They’ve done the first bit of Chapter One, and we hope they’ll keep going because it’s a really good start!

The radio play is also currently seeking auditions for more characters, so they can continue making more episodes! If you’re interested in voicing a Follower character, here’s what you need to know:

Anyone interested should record dialogue from at least three consecutive pages of the comic that have the character speaking in every one (I will make exceptions for characters that haven’t had that much dialogue yet, like Wolzarski) Other characters lines can be played by another person, by text-to-speech software, or just omitted.

Submissions can either be shared with via Google Drive, or uploaded to a site like Youtube or Soundcloud and linked to us with this form. Any file format will be accepted. Final date to submit TBD.

Also, I am opening up auditions for everyone except Richart (Since you liked Richart, and the actor has expressed a lot of enthusiasm for continuing the part, I’m going to keep him). Depending on how everything goes, I’m hoping to have a full episode recorded by the end of February.

Delade and I are both really excited about this, and really hope to see it continue, so please submit an audition if you think you can pull off a good Captain Bash or a perfect Dia!

Secondly, the first episode of our kinda-sorta-whenever Q&A podcast, Chio Chat, is now up! You can download or listen to it on, our new project/portfolio hub site!

Patreon First Milestone Reward – for everyone!

Patreon First Milestone Reward – for everyone! published on No Comments on Patreon First Milestone Reward – for everyone!

The Messenger & Follower Patreon is doing stupendously well so far! In a little over a month, we’ve managed to break through three milestone goals, which will enable me to do more with the comics! As a reward for accomplishing the first goal, I’ve created a brand new Chio-themed wallpaper that’s available for everyone, not just patrons! Thanks so much to everyone who’s supported us, whether it’s by supporting our Patreon, sharing a link to our comics with friends, or simply reading the comic each week. It really means a lot. Please feel free to download this wallpaper, and enjoy some desktop Chios!

If you want to help support Messenger and Follower, but are unable to back our Patreon campaign, that’s ok! There are still some other ways you can help support the comics for free:

  • Click the little “Follow” button on the top of our Patreon page to follow our updates. Apparently this also helps our rankings on Patreon and boosts our posts and updates a little higher in the list, so people are more likely to see them!
  • Retweet our comic updates and links on Twitter! (Or reblog our updates on Tumblr!)
  • Read Follower using Comic Chameleon, a free iOS app!
  • Or just share the comic with your friends!

As always, we appreciate your continued readership, and look forward to creating more new stuff for you to enjoy. Thank you!

Collecting Chios

Collecting Chios published on

First off, thanks to SJRM for the Canyon Chio art I’m featuring this week. I am just sorry it took me as long to get it posted.

Although Messenger has been on an unplanned break for some time, I am planning to begin posting pages again on the week of July 16th, along with the start of Chapter 2 of Follower! Things have been sort of challenging in real life with my job — it’s really hard most days to work on creative work all day, and then come home and have any energy left to put into comics, so that’s part of the reason I’m taking this break. I am doing my best, though! Working on Messenger and Follower is really important to me personally, so I have no intention of giving up until the end. It’s time for me to collect my Chios and get rolling on new comics again.

If you’re not caught up on Follower, the next two weeks would be a great time to check out the archive!

Thanks for reading, and as always, thanks for your continued support!
