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!

Follower Chapter Seven is Finished! (here’s how to read it early)

Chapter Seven is now complete! You can read it early by becoming a member of the Chio Club. All you have to do is pledge the amount of your choice through one of the sites linked on our Support page (including Patreon, Ko-Fi, or Gumroad) and you’ll get instant early access to the next 6 pages of the comic. You’ll also get early access to Chapter Eight as we work on it! Chapter Eight will begin in early 2022. Follower will remain on a bi-weekly schedule for the remainder of Chapter Seven, with Sketch Wednesday happening in between. Anyone can vote for the next Sketch Wednesday art! 

As another option to read the ending of Chapter Seven early, you can also buy or rent access to the entire chapter through Dillyhub! This is a new option we are testing, and to help it succeed if you join our Discord this weekend (7/29-7/31) and are one of the first three people to ask nicely, I’ll send you a code worth 10 Dillyhub coins, or in other words, enough coins to access all of Chapter Seven!

Thank you for continuing to read and support our work. The past few months (and year, let’s be honest) have been exceptionally hard so I am extra proud to have finished this chapter. I hope you enjoy it, and all that’s to come!

Follower featured on The Duck Webcomics (and other places to read the comic)

Follower was included as a featured comic on The Duck, one of the mirror sites where the comic updates with “rerun” pages every day! The Duck (formerly DrunkDuck) is a long-running webcomics community where tons of comics you probably know got their start, and where you can find completely new stuff to read. You can read Follower on The Duck, although it’s currently behind the main site. Thanks again to The Duck for featuring our comic! It means a lot to both of us!

Where else can you find Follower on the internet?

Follower also updates on Comicfury and Webtoons!

Subscribing to Follower on any of these sites helps us reach new audiences and readers by showing the ever-important algorithm that people actually like the comic, especially on Webtoons. You also get the added bonus of notifications when a new page goes live!

And if you’d rather cut right to the chase, you can always get personal comic updates by signing up for our email updates or using RSS!

Follower on Amazon

Follower issue 1 is now available for pre-order on Amazon’s Kindle Store as an ebook! The following issues will be coming up soon — there have been some minor technical issues getting them on the store. The pre-order price of $2.99 is only available during the pre-order period and for the first few days on the store, so if Kindle is your e-reader of choice, now’s your chance to get a discount copy of Follower!

If you pre-order now, the book will automatically be delivered to your device on April 1, 2021. It’s available in all international Kindle Stores, too. Pre-ordering helps us by bumping us up in the rankings a bit, and helps Follower find more new readers! (One of our main goals in adding Follower to Amazon!)

This digital version includes all of chapter one, along with the side story, “The Setup,” which isn’t available online. If you’ve already purchased a copy of issue 1 from another online shop, the contents of this book will be the same.
