So I’ve decided to make a small change to how I post my creator owned work online. Starting next Monday my Patreon backers will see all new F.O.E. pages and any travel writing I do a week before I put them up anywhere else. The comic will still be free online, but I wanted to give a little something extra to anyone who chooses to support my creator owned work. Patreon reward plans start at just $1 a month. My income is 100% based on freelancing for clients and that pays my bills, but projects like F.O.E. and The Illustrious Gentlemen take up time that I could be spending on client focused work or family, so I think it’s fair to offer something special to people who want to help support my work. If you’re interested, please take a few minutes and look it over. Shares of this post are greatly appreciated. https://www.patreon.com/ryancody
I printed up a very small run of Fata Obstant Expeditions #1 for my upcoming shows but I’ll sell a small handful here for those fans who REALLY want a print edition. It’s 20 pages, full color, and will cost $12 shipped. (U.S. Only). Included in that price you’ll also get a small, 5×7 head sketch of any character of your choice (no need for it be from FOE). I’m limiting this to only 6 copies initially. You can paypal me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I had a great time this past weekend at Cab Comics & The State Bar in Flagstaff. You can see some pics I posted over at azcomicminiexpo.com
Chapter 1 of Fata Obstant Expeditions wraps up next Monday. If you like to read comics as a whole instead of page by page, you can now pre-order the digital first issue as a high quality PDF. It will be available on Wednesday September 7th. Also, for fans of F.O.E. who want to support it more fully, I’ve created a Patreon page as well. There are options for behind the scenes process pieces, sketches & original art. Please, as always share this far and wide if possible, and I’ll keep chugging away at this fun little project. Chapter 2 starts September 12th.
I’ve just added the pages for F.O.E. up here on the site, so you can read the comic right here, or at your favorite site. As always, the original pages are available here. My other new project, alongside Scott Godlewski, The Illustrious Gentlemen podcast now has 4 episodes up (plus 2 bonus mini-sodes), and you can listen at iTunes, Stitcher, Soundcloud or right there on the blog.
