Ask a Chio Chio Club News Patreon

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!

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!

All current Patreon supporters can grab a copy of the wallpaper-sized art from this week’s Twitch streams! It features Dr. Tolio hard at work on his comedy, er, career. (A reference to Joke Night With Tolio, the terrible shorts in between Follower chapters!)
