Pre-launch comic art dump and comic info!

Hello readers,

Yes, soon Astray3 chapter 4 will begin! In the wee hours of Monday morning, a fresh new page will be posted! So, let’s update a few things.

There are a few changes to how pages and translated versions will be posted for 2020. There will no longer be a waiting period for translations. When a new A3 page posts, it will be followed shortly by the decoded version. ( This will last until no longer necessary. ) Thus, the reading order for chapter four will be the original page, translated page, next alien lingo page and so on. As much as I enjoy my vision of creating an immersive foreign world, I get that it can be annoying to folks who just want to read the work. How this will affect the future printed versions? I don’t know yet.

New pages should role out consistently for the next couple of months. I do, sadly, predict a lot of irregularities in posting. Most of you already know that last year I started attending conventions and art events to promote the comic and work. For 2020, I’m pushing to attend triple the amount of events. ( Almost a convention a month; sometimes more. ) Obviously, this means more time away from the drawing table. This will result in some short months. But, I will try to keep them rolling out.

What else can you expect from me in 2020? There will be another art book about mid-year covering part of 2019 and 2020. Also, look for new merch items in the Astray3 store. I will be creating a ton of new stuff for my con booth. On that note, If you use Patreon, please consider supporting Astray3. I’m too busy to put exclusives there. However, I do provide subscribers with discount codes for merch releases…and sometimes physical freebies. Alternately, consider buying some books from the Astray3 store. Any support is much appreciated.

And that is all for now! Look for a new comic post soon!

All the best,


Now, let’s post some art!

Astray3 returns on January 20th! and some art!

Hello, Astray3 faithful!

Yes, the fourth chapter will begin soon! There is a longer post and year-end retrospective on the Patreon page if you are so inclined to read it.

Page posting will largely follow the previous chapter. The main update will post on Monday with the translation following on Saturday. ( If necessary…wink…wink. )

I have a fair number of pages prepared as an update buffer. This should provide about three months of consistent updates. However, I have an aggressive convention/event schedule planned for 2020. That means loads of crucial art time spent traveling and schilling books. I will strive for at least one page a week, but we will probably have to settle for two to three pages a month. Sigh…C’est La Vie.

No need to end on a downer though. Astray3 is back! This will be the biggest chapter yet; along with an epilogue to round out the first part of the new adventure! Be back soon with more art and comics!

All the best,


P.S. Have a bonus crab girl to celebrate!
