Well, after… five years? Chapter 1 is finally complete! Here we finally get to see what the new vampires look like without their masks. And now you know why they decide to target Ferrah.
There will be a little break here, one week between this issue and the next one starting up so that we can rebuild a bit of backlog to ensure the next chapter continues on-time and on schedule.
There was a question regarding if Shifters would ever update more than once a week. My response to that question is in the forums. I think I will be going ahead with putting up the tipjar, and for every 50$ we get in September, we will add one additional page into the October schedule (we need to plan these things in advance so it has to be for a month in advance) So you can expect some minor tweeks to the website soon to track how much has been donated.
The kinsmir t-shirts are also still available from the store, and I’ll be hopefully getting some more things up into it, like buttons and prints, soon here, as well getting the first Shifters book printed. (*fingers crossed*)
Another exciting thing is that we just recorded our first podcast! I will be posting it later this week in its own section (MORE website renos…). We are currently trying to schedule them every 2 weeks, but if there’s the demand, we may go higher. In the spirit of that, make sure to post your questions to the forum thread!
Don’t forget to like our facebook page, and fave us on Inkoutbreak if you happen to be on it!
Cos & Effect was pretty awesome, I met a lot of great people. I hope some of them found their way here. 🙂 Shifters is also now in Inkoutbreak. If you haven’t checked out this new way to find/read comics, its pretty neat.
Oh so close, only one more page before the chapter is FINISHED! And nearly 3 months of regular updates! Huzzah!
Ferrah is still oblivious to the fact that Kat has bigger problems than what is going on at the dance. And really, her skin watch is that cool.
Don’t forget the Kinsmir shirts are on sale in the store! And also don’t forget to favorite Shifters Facebook page!
More exposition, quazi world stuff. Cos & Effect is now over, and was pretty good for me. I sold a LOT of buttons. XD I’ll be getting more stuff up at the store soon.
Only a few pages left in the chapter! Don’t forget to like Shifters on facebook.
We are up to page 29! Exciting! Its almost the end of the chapter! Woo! And we haven’t missed a day yet since launch. Come close a few times… but we managed to get it up!
A little world exposition in this page, subtle, but present. More will be explained later but we’ve learned a lot in a single page, so much more than the whole CHAPTER in the last story. whoo for better story telling skills.
I now have a store! The first major item? A bitchin Shifters shirt based of Ferrah’s kinsmir form!
A closer look at the design on the shirt can be found here. The only color is grey right now, but if you order one this week, you will probably get it faster than later because I’m just placing an order for Cos & Effect and its easy to throw a few more shirts in that order if I know they are bought.
I will be selling the cool shirts, comics, jewelry, and more at Cos & Effect this weekend August 13-14 in the Artist alley at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver! If you are in Vancouver, BC this coming weekend come and check it out! A cosplay extravaganza!
Its August, that makes two months of steady Monday updates for everyone. How’s them apples?
In this page we get a little bit of info about Ferrah’s super shiny cyber watch. A biomonitor, for those who don’t know is a little bit of cyberware that monitors your vital signs. It could tell you if you have a fever or if you are fighting an infection, or if you’re blood alcohol level is too high, if you’ve been drugged… all sorts of uses.
Also, as a fun factoid. It is Illegal to be barefoot on the Vancouver Skytrain. You can be kicked off for ‘inappropriate footwear’. That’s where I got the idea that it is also illegal in Shade City and you will be kicked off the tram unless you put on some shoes. Tough beans for a Shifter that’s lost their footwear.
Ferrah’s mom will be playing a bit larger of a roll in the new comic, so you can see she cares about her daughter, taking her to the spa for her birthday. If you’ve never been to the spa, I can’t recommend at least one visit enough. Especially the pedicures. Oh my GOD. *melts*
I will be at Cos & Effect on August 13 & 14th this month at UBC in Vancouver. Come by and support meh!
Don’t forget to like Shifters on Facebook for updates and special notices.
It’s Monday! You know what that means.
Back to Ferrah and Kat. Did you remember that Kat’s real name is Alice? Kudos if you remembered. Isn’t it amazing how people can spin events to sound completely normal? And there’s Ferrah giving Kat shit about standing up to bullies…
Minicomi didn’t turn out as well as I’d hoped. But I’ve still got two cons to go. My next con is Cos & Effect, in Vancouver. I’m working on doing some very cool shirts right now, I’ll be posting them for preorder soon for interested people.
Don’t forget to favorite Shifters Facebook page!
Another Monday, another page!
Karma is pretty ticked. Unfortunately his minions aren’t particularly obedient, at least the girl isn’t. We’ll be seeing their faces eventually here. But I think the page largely speaks for itself. Karma isn’t quite as powerless as his newest minion thinks, his powers are just… subtle.
Don’t forget, if you are in Vancouver, BC this weekend (July 23) is MINICOMI! Mad-Cheshire and I will be there selling our wares. Minicomi is at UBC’s Student Union building and is from 10am-5pm. Come and check it out!
Also, don’t forget we have a facebook page you should like if you haven’t already.
Another wonderfully colored page, on time, woot. That’s now six weeks of updates solid. 🙂 Yes, I’m still counting. XD
Kat knows that the vampires are still hot on her heels and gets herself and Ferrah onto the tramp without Ferrah realizing that anything is wrong. Is she good or what?
Doesn’t stop her from throwing Karma a bit of attitude though.
The Tram system of Shade City is like a super cracked up version of the Skytrain in Vancouver, if you’ve ever seen it. Least that’s what I imagine it to be like.
Don’t forget, if you happen to be in Vancouver, BC round July 23, Minicomi! is going on and both Mad Cheshire and I will be there! Its a free event at UBC, so do stop by! Doors open at 10am. I’ll be selling comics, jewelry, artist cards, commissions, buttons and maybe T-shirts, not sure yet if I can get those done in time. We’ll see! Please come out and show your support!
I will also hopefully be getting a store for Shifters (and other) stuff online soon. There will (hopefully) both downloadable digital content and real physical products. Very exciting times!
Don’t forget we are also still looking for questions for the Shifters Podcast! Please post your questions in this thread in the forums.
Another Monday, another page! Moving closer and closer to the end of the chapter. In this version of the comic, its a little more evident that Ferrah is a bit boycrazy. This aspect of her personality comes from years of having boycrazy female friends. A tribute to women and their mancrush obsessions. Huzzah.
The costume contest is closed and the judges are judging. Stay tuned for the results!
Mysti (Mad-Chesire, our official colorist) and myself are looking to start a Shifters podcast, but we need QUESTIONS for the podcast from you, our wonderful readers. We’ve got a thread in the forums, which we’d ask that you post there so we can keep them all in one place. We need lots of questions about the world, or characters, or stories, or races, etc, so don’t be shy.
Don’t forget we also have a facebook page for notifications of contests and updates, so make sure you ‘like’ it!
Also don’t forget, both Mad Cheshire and Myself will be at Minicomi! It is from 10am -5pm at the University of British Columbia’s Student Union building here in Vancouver, BC, Canada. So if you happen to be in the area, come by and check out our booths! Its FREE to attend! And there will be a free concert around 7pm too.
And another update! Woo!
We’ve been kicking around the idea of a Shifters Podcast, but we’d like some input as to what sort of stuff you guys would like to hear on the podcast. We kinda thought it would be cool to take a shifters related subject or question and talk about it for about half an hour to an hour depending. But if there are other things you guys are interested in hearing about, please post your ideas in the forum.
Also! The costume contest ends this week! If you’ve been thinking about entering, now is the time! The thread to post your entry is here. Contest closes June 30!
