As you all probably know already, the Coronavirus scare is taking a toll on the convention and live event circuit. This resulted in the cancellation/postponement of next week’s Planet Comicon in Kansas City. A large event I was counting on to recoup some production costs. To compensate, I’m promoting a sale on the Astray3 Big Cartel shop.
All purchases will come with bonus goodies! Either a free cover print or mini-print with your order! Get them while supplies last!
Indeed, there is now an Astray3 store! ( I’ve been promising one for long enough! ) You can buy all my current books there. More products and services will be added soon. Also, if you are a current, or former, Patreon contributor, check your messages for special discount codes on book purchases. ( And if you aren’t a member already, sign-up for future discount opportunities. )
Sorry folks, no comic update this week. Things got out of hand over the weekend and I wasn’t able to work on the next A3. Seems I have an underground water leak that needs to be addressed soon. Return next Monday as a new phase of chapter four begins! Familiar faces, friend and foe, will be returning.
This is a late update for what to expect in the upcoming weeks. ( And posting the final designs for the D&D sticker design run. )
Expect some more delays in comic posts. Things are about to start picking up and there is a big scene change coming. This will involve some design work that will stall page production. I’m optimistic that we won’t go weeks without updates. I can’t guaranteed it though.
That time has arrived, the time when comic updates will become irregular. Fortunately, updates should still appear weekly. They’ll post as soon as I deem them ready for release. This is a result of production complications and just plain ole not enough time in the day. I will endeavor to keep you up to date on when the new pages will drop.
In the meantime, enjoy the latest two additions to my upcoming saucy D&D sticker series. I have three more planned. Look for those in the coming two weeks.
Comic update will be late this week. I took too long with the art and the lettering has yet to be completed. Look for the update to drop on Tuesday. This will probably be the pattern for the near future. There will be a comic update each week, but they’ll drop on the day they are finished.
I hope everyone is staying safe and healthy out there. I’m working from home and trying to stay as isolated as I can. But, the crummy weather here in the Ozarks is really dampening the mood. ( Ha…DAMP… ) Well, that’s a minor complaint compared to what some people are going through right now. If you have the means, I’d like to encourage you to look toward artists and small businesses that could use help right now. I personally know artists who depend on conventions to literally pay the bills. The closures of those events have left them in a terrible bind. So, please, if you can, maybe search out their etsy or other stores to purchase a little something. I’m sure it’ll give you that warm and fuzzy charitable feeling. ( A selfish reminder, there is a sale going on at the Astray3 shop. All purchases will get some nifty bonus surprises. It might be stickers! It might be prints! It might even be bonus comics! Who knows? )
Ok, I’m not done with selfish reminders. Astray3 does have a Patreon page! ( Doesn’t everybody nowadays. ) If you can throw a couple dollars toward the production of Astray3 each month it would be greatly appreciated. The Patreon page usually updates before the home page and I even write some extra bonus commentary on the comic page and art updates. Also, I drop discounts or free shipping codes there for the patrons when new products are released. Ok…I’m finished for real now.
