On Sale: Follower on Kindle

All 3 Follower comics are now available on Kindle! Each comic includes the entire chapter, as well as a bonus story. Issue 3 also includes remastered art currently unavailable on the website. Each issue is currently $2.99, but only through April 13! Check out the entire series on Amazon.

If you’ve read the comics from another source, like in print or from one of our digital shops like Gumroad or itch.io, you can still leave a review on Amazon which will help us find more new readers. 

If you’re on Goodreads, Follower is also now listed there, too, so you can add it to your lists.

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.

Interview on Ink, Sweat & Tears

Follower is a story that appears on the surface to be all gloom and doom and military dystopia, but at its heart it’s a story about learning to not always accept the world as it’s given, and the importance of trusting yourself, and finding those around you who you can trust just as closely.

Bug & Delade

Bug and Delade were interviewed this week for Ink, Sweat & Tears, a website dedicated to news about small artists, writers, and creative folks. Check out the interview here!

Kickstarting NOW! Dia Enamel Pins!

To kick off the new year, we decided to participate in Kickstarter’s Make 100 Project this month! We’re Kickstarting a limited edition enamel pin featuring Dia, and we’ve got 30 days to fund it. After 2020, Dia seemed like the right character to feature because she’s got the right attitude to lead us into the new year.

The pins themselves will be 1.5 inch soft enamel pins. Soft enamel pins are a high-quality enamel pin made with die struck (raised) metal and recessed enamel. I’m working with a well-established company that specializes in making these types of pins.

The final product may vary slightly in color or metal finish. This is a pretty good look at what it’ll be like, though!

In addition to pins, we’re also including a matching holographic Dia sticker at certain pledge levels! Other rewards include digital comic downloads. There’s something for everybody, and every pledge gets us closer to making this project real!

Check out our project on Kickstarter and get your very own Dia to wear, or pin on your pinboard, or stick on your bag!

Friday Night Doodle Zone!

We spent most of this evening with our cat, Milo, at the emergency vet. He was in a lot of pain and having what seemed to be a urinary blockage. Ouch. Double ouch happened when we got the bill, but our boy is worth it.

To help defray some of the costs of this evening’s excitement, Bug will be doing a Friday Night Doodle Zone stream on Twitch, with pay-what-you-want doodles going on from 6 to 8 PM eastern time! The end result for your doodle request depends on how much you chip in, so this could be either awesome or hilarious! Come join in!

If you can’t make the stream but still want to help, you can chip in to our Ko-Fi and you’ll get a thank you doodle in return.

Here’s the good boy in question, snuggling deep into a fluffy blanket. We’d take a current picture, but he’s pretty drugged up and that might be undignified. We’re just glad he’s going to be okay. <3
