Ask a Chio: What if you were a chio?

I would not be a very good Chio. 

Chios are from Messenger and Follower. I, however, am a human.

But, if you want to be a Chio, you can be! Join the Create a Chio project and commission your very own Chio who will cameo in the upcoming chapter eight of Follower!

Or, Ask a Chio will be reopening today for Chio Club members on a limited time basis! Pledge at the $5 or above level by February 5, 2022 and you’ll get to ask your very own Chio question! Find out more in this post on Follower’s blog.

Ask a Chio Returns!

This week’s update ends Follower Chapter Seven! Thank you for reading all this way with us! Before we start Chapter Eight, we’ll be taking a short two-week break to make sure everything is ready for the next chapter. But that doesn’t mean there won’t be anything here to see!

Before we begin the new chapter, we wanted to try something different… To fill in the gap between chapters, we’re offering a limited round of Ask a Chio Q&A spots! Whether you’re supporting us via Patreon, Ko-Fi, or Gumroad, all Chio Club members who are pledging $5 or more as of January 23 will be eligible to Ask a Chio anything, and get a guaranteed answer! 

What’s Ask a Chio? It used to be an ask blog I ran on Tumblr for a couple of years, before it became challenging to balance with regular comic work. But I think it would be fun to try and bring it back on a limited basis. I’ve slowly been adding Ask a Chio answers to Radiochio.com for fun, and it would be great to have some new answers to add to the classic ones. 

What can you ask a Chio? Nearly anything, so long as it’s SFW. Just bear in mind that Chios’ knowledge of the world is limited to certain areas, so you might get interesting answers… You can direct a question to a particular Chio, or you can just ask a general question and see who shows up to answer it. 

Again, thank you for continuing to read and support our comic! Hopefully we’ll see what kinds of things the Chios get asked!

Ask a Chio: Are chios kangaroo people?

Surprisingly, no! Chios are a genetically engineered species of creatures built from combined human and animal DNA.

Although, if you ask some of the Chios themselves, they might relate their creation myth to you instead.

What we do know for sure, is that they’re kind of cute.

ited time basis! Pledge at the $5 or above level by February 5, 2022 and you’ll get to ask your very own Chio question! Find out more in this post on Follower’s blog.

Create or Ask a Chio!

Follower just wrapped up Chapter Seven this week, and Chapter Eight will begin on February 9! In the meantime, early pages and work-in-progress will be available for Chio Club members.

There are also a couple of new rewards for joining the Chio Club! You can Create a Chio that will appear in Chapter Eight, or you can Ask a Chio Anything!

Join the Chio Club at the $5 (or more) level between January 23 and February 5 to get a guaranteed Ask a Chio Answer! What’s Ask a Chio? It’s an old blog where folks could ask questions of the Chio cast of Messenger and Follower, and sometimes they’d get answers. Right now, this is the only way to ask a Chio and get an answer!

When you join the Chio Club at the $50 ore more level, you’ll get your very own custom-designed Chio who will appear in Chapter Eight! The base price for a cameo Chio is $50 for a single-page appearance, but for $150 your character will appear on at least 3 pages with the possibility of a speaking part. (Speaking parts are limited.) These commissions will close near the end of February to ensure there is time to design the character and get them into the comic!

For more details and terms, check out the commissions page on our Ko-Fi!

When you become a Vloxen geneticist, you’ll also get special access to the Cottontail Base section of our Discord so you can discuss your upcoming cameo Chios in secret! You can also hang out in the regular parts of our Discord over here!

Join the Chio Club!

No matter where you join the Chio Club, your support helps keep the comics online and updating. (And it keeps the creators alive!

Ask a Chio: Does a Chio have an afterlife? (since it was made by science n’ stuff)

Interesting question! Chios don’t have any really specific spiritual beliefs, but rather each individual tends to form their own beliefs and conclusions. Some believe in an afterlife, some don’t. 

As to whether there’s an actual afterlife for Chios, well, that’s about as easy to confirm as it is for humans! I guess we’ll have to wait and see.

Eldora is from Messenger, and Chios are featured in both Messenger and Follower!

Ask a Chio will be reopening soon for Chio Club members on a limited time basis! Pledge at the $5 or above level by February 5, 2022 and you’ll get to ask your very own Chio question! Find out more in this post on Follower’s blog.

Ask a Chio: Hello there fellow chio! (…)

Hello there fellow chio! As you can clearly see, I am a chio just like you and certainly not a human in a chio suit. So, how about we talk about normal chio things?

Chios are very giving!

They are from the comics Messenger and Follower!

Art vs. Artist 2021

I don’t usually do these because I either miss the fact that the hashtag is going on, or I start having doubts about posting pictures of my own face online, but then I decided that it was acceptable to use a self portrait I did recently, so I did that instead.

2021 was a terrible year for existing, but somehow it turned out to be a decent year for art. I made a lot more stuff than I expected to, and a significant portion of it was comics. I learned some new techniques and improved on others, and that’s about all you can ask for as an artist.

To help me keep making more new art in 2022, or to get some custom art of your own, join the Chio Club! I’m also available for one-off commissioned art, and you can find out more about that on my Ko-Fi page.
