News of special anniversary comics and prints will be announced very soon!
Has it really been that long? Blimey - time flies!! Happy birthday, Chloe!
Would you fancy being a patron of my work?
Here’s a fascinating new offering from the web…Patreon! A friend pointed this site out to me and I was taken back by it’s simple wonderfulness, and thought what-the-hey…you don’t know if you don’t try, right?
Have you ever felt you wanted to support an artist in their work somehow? Not just by buying their work on release, but by really becoming a patron? A supporter? Well, Patreon makes that possible! It’s different to kickstarter and similar sites as, instead of funding one final goal, you can support a creator’s works as a whole with pay-per-creation or a small monthly donation, depending on what the creator has set to suit their output. And if the creator hits some set goals, the contributions may well result in more work being made. It’s a nifty setup in an age where so many are moving towards ownership and collaborative funding.
Obviously Malin and I intended to make BREAKS a free-to-view webcomic, and it still is. One page will be added every Monday on breakscomic.com as it has been. However, the patreon page gives you the option to show your support for the work we’re putting in, from as little as $1 a month, and possibly open up new avenues that we couldn’t have considered for free. Extra pages, extra content, more print editions…with funding, who knows?^_^
Again, not supporting doesn’t mean that you can’t read the free webcomic in any way, but if you’ve been following my work for a while, and want to show support, or you’re just keen to show your interest in BREAKS, here’s a fantastic way for you to become a part of it and of course earn yourself many virtua hugs and the warm fuzzies of knowing you’re making art happen! ^_^
UMBRAL #4 ON SALE • UMBRAL VOL 1 NOW AVAILABLE FOR PRE-ORDER
UMBRAL #4: And Black Waters Remain goes on sale this week.
I think it’s safe to say this is my favourite cover so far; say hello to Black Rojyr, pirate ghost and scourge of the underworld.
In this issue, with Dalone down and out, Rascal and Shayim are trapped in the Umbral, and Black Rojyr isn’t the only apparition interested in what Rascal’s got up her sleeve… or rather, in her tunic.
The order code for issue #4 is DEC130601, and you can read a five-page preview on tumblr.
As always, digital readers can buy UMBRAL from Comixology (where you can also Subscribe to the series), or you can get it DRM-free directly from Image Comics. You can also follow our Twitter account for all the latest updates.
And if you’re “tradewaiting” the series, rejoice! Because UMBRAL Book One: Out of the Shadows is now available for pre-order.
Now, we want as many people as possible to read this book, so we’ve gone a little crazy. It will feature all of the first six issues, including the extra-long #1 and Chris’ amazing covers, making it a one hundred and sixty-eight page volume… all for the rather silly cover price of $9.99.
The ISBN (for bookstores) is 978-1607069843, the Diamond order code (for comic stores) is MAR140551, and it will go on sale May 28. Enjoy.
It is Monday, and that means time for another page! And oh my, will this be an interesting one!
Whose ass is getting slapped? Does the fact that Cortland smiles on the page has something to do with it?
Go and read the new page now and find out!
And remember, if you like it, rate, comment and follow! There are a lot of other cool things on Smackjeeves that you can use your registration for, and we thrive on knowing that people read this. Smiles are also a currency you know…
Omg that thumbnail! Hahahahah. Love it!
Yessss, BREAKS has updated. Enjoy! ^_^
