We’re making some alliances here…
Getting ready for November’s update? How about a little pre-game artwork to tide you over until Saturday’s page post? These were both done by a follow webcomic creator, and you can check out more of their online artwork here!
First, I promised this awhile back, and my Patreon backers got a little advance on it:
I’m only giving one more week to vote on this next side story, as we’re currently $7 away from the goal and I know that won’t last long.
Toss in a vote or forever regret missing out on reading more details about a character you like!
Toss me a vote, which story would you most want to read about. Most of these will hit the 12-14 page range.
Plus enjoy a small WIP of the next wallpaper readers helped vote on. This should be done and available for everyone in the next few weeks!
Hello there, sorry to have gone so silent the last few months, well other than the page updates which go up regardless.
I’ve mostly gone quiet because I was working very hard on some things behind the scenes, let’s go over those shall we?
*First the biggest thing, I’ve been working on a small comic side project called End/City, which has been posting via my Patreon page for a few months. As of last night, all 45 pages are fully penciled. Big milestone as that step takes me the longest of any of the comic process. I expect to be done coloring and formatting the whole thing early August.
*Speaking of Patreon, it underwent some much needed touch ups. The biggest is with the roll over August 1st I will be removing the ‘Monthly Merchandise Friend’ level for a temporary period of time. Due to some bad luck and holds ups with June’s items ended up delaying July’s as well, I’ve decided I want to take some time to hoard a nice buffer of items before I start up again. Fear not, for the time being I’ve replaced it with a ‘Monthly Doodle Buddy’ level, that nabs you a digital sketch each month. Request your character, request mine, anything! Please update your pledges before August 1st.
*And to round this out, I’ve started on formatting Asis book two for print later this year. Oo, ah..stay tuned for that.
A few things I should point out across the site.
First, a few weeks ago I shifted my hosting plan into VPS areas, to help combat those ever increasing instances of 500 errors. For the record those were happening when this site was getting too much traffic on a very limited server. With the magic power of a few extra dollars per month, I have given us double the speed and memory power to help keep that from being something that happens as frequently and as long.
That said you still may run into 500 errors here and there over the next few months while I work with my WordPress backend to play nice with the new VPS. These will however be fewer and fair between, as well as something that will return to normal function within a smaller window, usually 10-25 minutes tops.
I’ve also hit a new goal for my Patreon support for this webcomic! With this we will get a full six page update whenever it works into story pacing. What this means is, as long as posting six pages doesn’t result in my posting of a drastically important new scene start, we get six pages each month. I only left that as a pending option since I hate seeing a chapter end, then a big shocking chapter start page ruin the flow for the month. (PS: April will get six pages, promise.) There are two more goal levels to hit, one adds a side story comic that backers will get early access to, and the last removes all ads from the site as long as the Patreon remains at the that goal level.
Also with the Patreon update, I’ve added a level for Monthly Merchandize. Backers of this level will get a physical item sent to them each month, be it a sticker, bookmark, postcard, button, original sketch or other fun items I find I can create. These will feature art and characters from both Asis and any side comics I’m working on at the time you back.
And hey, you guys are awesome, I can’t thank those of you that help support this comic work enough, feel free to vote on a wallpaper I plan to add for everyone as part of the success of the current Patreon goals.
