Meanwhile, we've got 4 more new SpiderForest members to share!
Earth in a Pocket: Anthropologist-turned-astronaut Halisi Mwangi’s lifelong mission is to bring the past to the stars. One unexpected malfunction later, however, and Halisi is space-shipwrecked on a strange alien world. As she struggles to survive and find a way back home, she finds herself with a new mission: to teach the local alien denizens about humanity, armed with only the contents of her pockets.
Faction:In the game of MUlate, players are sorted into Factions and must fight for domination. Emma Martina – a well known sponsored player – has played MUlate since it first launched, but with her Faction on the brink of elimination and mounting pressure from her sponsors, she begins to wonder how long she has before she’s out of a job.
Temerity: Taeru is a very serious genetically enhanced super-soldier. Naia is a less serious sugar-addicted mercenary. Together they’re the best work-for-hire duo in the galaxy. In an intergalactic world of mechas, brain hacking, and terrible pun t-shirts, Taeru and Naia spend their days performing daring missions for their clients and fighting their own personal demons. Now they’re embarking on the most dangerous mission yet: taking down the organization that created Taeru—and attempting to keep their partnership strictly professional.
Gifts of Wandering Ice: “Gifts of wandering ice” is a sci-fi comic about ancient things people find in melting icebergs. These things, the “ice gifts”, can be anything from frozen ancient trash to valuable technology and even living creatures. Studying ice gifts is dangerous but it’s the only way to restore the forgotten history of humanity.
In other news, here's some more promos for new SpiderForest members!
Black Shallows: Hadian’s world is sinking into the sea. As ever increasing amounts of land fall into the water, blame is cast on a hidden and secretive group of people whose strange ability to travel through dirt and time may be causing the devastating collapses. Hadian is one of them.
Interritus: Centuries ago, the survivors of a chemical apocalypse emerged in a world affected by radiations. Decades of gruesome war between the fire and water nations culminate in a reluctant treaty, as now both sides have a common enemy - swarms of spectre demons that destroy and take away lives regardless of power or faction.
Ten Earth Shattering Blows: Lady Landabella Trastan, a noblewoman from the rich city of Vezenia, travels across the desert with a skimpy escort. Her quest: to kill the “evil witch” that resides in the fortress of Saltfall. Her motives: unknown. What is certain is that she hugely underestimates the task. Caught between ruthless slavers and lizard-riding riders, she soon discovers that the authority of her noble status is worth nothing in a lawless, unforgiving land.
Broken: Broken is about a fairie general and his army struggling to protect their city-state after an alchemical anomaly brought eldritch monsters into their dimension.
The SpiderForest collective accepted some new members in August and I'm helping promote them over the next 4 weeks! Expect 4 new comics each week!
Northwind: Angels Tiel and Iax accidentally release the Northwind, which results in their banishment to Earth. Watch as they hilariously learn to fit in with humans, dodge the Northwind, and discover a potentially earth-shattering demon plot.
The Stoop-Gallants: When Ru drunkenly discovers his necromantic powers one night, his life is irreversibly changed and he embarks on a quest to get rid of his desiccated new companion, meeting a colorful cast of knights, wizards and scholars with mysterious cheese allergies.
Flaky Pastry: Follow the unlikely adventures of three room mates: Marelle, Nitrine and Zintiel. Silliness and situational comedy, with a healthy dose of adventure, action, romance and outright craziness.
Ingress Adventuring Co.: Saving the world is a pretty big deal, but what do you do when no one needs you anymore? Do you become a magic professor? Do you study a convoluted thesis that no one understands? Maybe you relive the glory days by starting up a one-man adventuring party to gather mystical artifacts for people who may or may not pay you.
Or, if you're Toivo Kissa, you do all of those things.
We're buying a house and moving in early August and the stress is causing my chronic pain symptoms to flare up and I just need to make sure I'm taking care of myself right now.
I'll resume updates again after FlameCon!
Again, I'm so sorry, but I need to prioritize my health right now so I can do my best on this comic!
