End of Volume 1!on July 9, 2011 at 12:00 am
Today’s page marks the end of Chapter 4. That means that VOLUME 1 of My Sister the Freak is DONE! It has been a little over a year since I’ve started this webcomic (my very first comic ever!). It feels SO good to be reaching this milestone. THANK YOU to every single one of you who have visited every week, subscribed, shared and talked about MSTF on the interwebs, and bought books throughout the run so far. I could not produce this story without your support.
Where do we go from here?
I will put together a print version of Issue 4 as soon as possible, so keep an eye out for that to go on sale in the next few weeks.
But also, now that this first story is done (my “pilot episode”, so to speak), I will be collecting chapters 1-4 into one mega collected VOLUME 1 PAPERBACK. It will have the entire story so far plus a giant section (nearly half the book!) of bonus features never before seen in the other print issues, all in a nicely perfect-bound edition. I am still creating artwork and collecting material for this book. It likely won’t be available until fall, but I will be opening up a special pre-order deal soon. Keep an eye out for it if you want to be one of the first to own Volume 1!
The update schedule is going to go on a little break. In a few weeks, I’ll start up again by sharing a bunch of guest art that I’ve collected (which will also be in the paperback book). I will post a different artist at least once a week for a month or two.
During this time, I will be hard at work on writing Volume 2. I am hoping to make the next MSTF story bigger and better than the first volume. I am going to try to really hammer out a solid story and get a good buffer of pages done before I relaunch, so I am unsure as of yet when the comic will be back to its standard page-a-week schedule, but I will keep the site updated with news and extras until then.
In the meantime, I hope you enjoy the upcoming books and continue to share My Sister the Freak with your friends and others who may enjoy it. :)
Many many thanks!
