(Coron, I don’t think land masses quite work like that…)
That’s a wrap, readers! Book 2, Sand and Sieve, is done. And trust me, shit’s about to get crazy.
So the book is done, and that means what? That means a hiatus for comic updates for a while. I’ve got to hammer a lot of details out for the next book, draw a lot of concept, finalize the script, and stuff. I also plan on kicking my redo queue for the previous book into high gear and have printed copies available before updating again. Preferably, I’d even like to have Sand and Sieve readied for print before posting new material too, but that’s tentative. That could extend my hiatus for another month on top of the two-ish I’m planning on dedicating to this other stuff.
There’s also something else I’m going to be trying when I come back, and that’s taking advantage of a Patreon account. Please check it out, let me know what you think, and by all means– subscribe if want! I mean, not to put a damper on anything, but this stuff ain’t free to make, and each page takes me anywhere from 5-7 hours to draw from start to finish. Pages 96 and 97 up there? They took me 8 hours just to color the both of them. So if you want to help support me and this stuff I’m making, even that $1/mo for the extra goodies would be greatly appreciated.
I don’t want to be a shill either, so I’m laying this out on the line too: if you like Aquapunk, please spread the word! Share my updates on FB, twitter, tumblr, wherever you and your friends hang out. The boost in morale I get every time I hear from a new reader is an amazing feeling. It sure as heck is better than radio silence, I’m sure you can imagine. :P
Anyways, I’m not going anywhere; feel free to comment or hit me up at any of those little social networking links on the sidebar over there (and I’m especially chatty on tumblr). I will start to post stuff to the patreon account sooner rather than later, even though I won’t be making a big push for it until I start posting book 3. If you have any questions regarding that, feel free to ask in the comments here.
So stick around guys, and stay tuned for The Centipede in October!
