First of all I’d like to say thank you to everyone for their patience of late. Fera updates have been delayed recently due to a family emergency/funeral but will be returning to update weekly again this week as I get back on top of everything. It’s been a difficult few weeks and both myself and Donna appreciate all of the support that friends, and indeed readers have given us.
Work is still on-going to complete Fera issue #3, as well as working on updating the artwork for Fera issue #1 which will be combined with the other two issues (plus extras) to form the first definitive Fera trade paperback. Our other projects are coming along nicely too, although my time is spread rather thinly at the moment as I need to prioritise my paid/freelance work, whilst juggling upcoming conventions etc.
As a result of the current situation I have not yet been able to get reprints made of Fera issue #2 and The Editors issue #1 in time for Newcastle Film and Comic Con in March, and I don’t currently have the funds to do so. I still have 10 copies of Fera issue #2 in stock (not counting the ones that were water damaged at my last convention in 2013), so it’s very possible that they’ll join The Editors issue #1 in being out of stock very quickly at NFCC.
Due to my current financial situation I will need to prioritise my paid/freelance work over working on comics more than usual (as much as I wish that wasn’t the case). But there is a way that you guys can help shift that in the other direction – so that I can produce more comics, and art content for you guys to enjoy! In fact there are a few ways, and some may even help me get new print runs of the books out faster too…
There are a few things mentioned in the “Books, Commissions, Prints, and more!” section below if you’re interested in buying comics, t-shirts, or having me sketch a butt for you (or whatever) but for this news post I want to talk to you about Patreon.
