And that’s the end.

And so Chapter Seven ends. And Eldora is still alive. For now? Tee hee. The whole debate has been fairly entertaining. Let’s do it again sometime. 😉

The fourth page of the “Gears” minicomic is now available when you vote for Messenger!

As always, previous pages of this minicomic are archived on the forum. You need to be a registered member to view them!

What else is new this week? Not much. I’ve made a few relatively unimportant changes to the site, like making it a 3-column layout to eliminate the clutter in the sidebar. I’ve also started watermarking all the comic pages. Not because I think anyone is necessarily going to steal them, but it’s one of those things I sort of feel like I should have been doing from the beginning. At least they’ll be sort of dated now, and if anyone ever “borrows” one of them, it’ll at least have a link back to where it came from. Whatever. :V

I’ve been doing a mini ad-blitz lately to try and bring more readers to the site. Traffic is definitely up, so if you’re reading this and you’re new, welcome! I hope you’ll stick around. On the other hand, if you’re already a regular reader, maybe you’ll consider passing the comic along to some of your friends? Pointing in the general direction of the Promote page, hint hint. :B

Lastly, on a completely unrelated note, go download this and listen to it. It’s free and free music is good, right? I have been a huge Nine Inch Nails nerd since forever, so I’m finding How to Destroy Angels pretty interesting and I’ve been listening to it all weekend. On top of that, I’m a big fan of the way they’ve started releasing a lot of their new music for free with the option to buy a hard copy, so I’m interested in supporting that if possible. It’s a bit like the way webcomics are distributed, when you think about it – you can read the comic for free online, but occasionally there are books or other extra physical goodies available for a small amount. At any rate, I’d like to see more music available this way someday, so I’m all for that. Vote with your wallet. :V

That’s all for now, comic readers! Thanks for checking in and I’ll see you next Monday for the beginning of Chapter Eight!

New Reader?

New Reader? published on No Comments on New Reader?

Hey there! Did you arrive here by clicking a link banner from some other comic or website? Are you a new reader? I’ve been doing a bunch of advertising lately to try and build up my readership, and I just want to say welcome, and I hope you’ll stick around!

Messenger is a sci-fi/fantasy webcomic that debuted in 2004 and has almost 200 pages in its archive. It follows the stories of a group of survivors in a post-apocalyptic future. If you’re confused about the story so far, you can easily catch up by skimming through the Story Guide or browsing the Cast page.

Messenger updates every Monday, and is currently almost to the end of Chapter Seven, so you’re in a good place to catch up before Chapter Eight begins! There is also a mini-comic which tells a short side story available by voting for Messenger at TopWebComics every week.

If you use Twitter, you can follow comic updates at @radio_chio. You can also follow comic updates via RSS or e-mail subscription.There is also a forum here on the site for discussions, polls, and secret bonuses for registered members!

Thanks for visiting, and I hope you’ll stick around! After nearly six years, I’m finally reaching some major turning points in the story and I’m really excited about where things will go from here. I hope you’ll stay with me for the ride. 🙂
