Upload moved to next week and the Store information
Hey guys, I'm supposed to be in Utah right now but I'm not because I'm crazy sick. I'm apparently at that age where I can't go to a convention and NOT get sick. Those of you who found me at Sakura con, it was awesome meeting you.
So the next page goes up next week, totally my fault, sorry guys.
In good news, the store should be up soon. We're switching order fulfillment over to Shark Robot so that I don't have to ship things out of my garage anymore. Those of you who ordered before the store went down, your orders have been processed and just went out.
Sorry again, guys!
Hey guys, I'm having some tech problems and I'm in Seattle right now for Sakuracon so the page is going to have to be pushed back to TUESDAY. So sorry about this but I don't have all the stuff I need with me in Seattle so please bare with me. I know this is probably one of the WORST pages to do this on. Sorry!!!
We're falling apart on you guys. ;_;
Sorry, guys, this week's page has been derailed by an emergency trip to the hospital. Nothing life altering, just one of those things requiring attention.
I dunno what or why it is, but Jayd and I are literally falling apart on you guys in the health department.
Will update you on what's up in a few days.
No page this week! Sorry!
It has been... god it's been a crazy month. I have/had major things going on at the same time and they've just drained me dry.
1. I have a screenplay due next week for school
2. My sister was in town for a week visiting. (Good times! )
3. The 2+ year lawsuit my husband's been involved with just settled today. He works in video games and he and almost 40 of his coworkers were suing Activision for unpaid wages. You can sort of read about it here if you want: http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/thr-esq/call-duty-activision-settles-lawsuit-331815 We can't really say much more about it, but suffice it to say, it's been a tense month leading up to this.
SO. I decided I'm going to take my new narcolepsy medication (oh, btw, I'm trying out new meds too this month, wtf is my life?) and sleep instead of edit/letter tonight. ;_;
BUT. I have the page, so I promise it'll be up bright and early next Thursday. When I'm less insane and more composed.
Sorry guys. ;_; I'm weak sauce this week!!!
Finally! Thursday (the 24th) we'll have the store up and running and ready for you guys to check out! In the store we'll have copies of CHAPTER 1, a really cute SOOT BULL KEYCHAIN, PRINTS, and I'm also going to make SWEETNESS my art book with Adrian Alphona also available because WHY NOT?
Hey guys! I (Christina) will be at Toronto Comic Arts Festival (TCAF) this weekend (May 5th & 6th) with Adrian Alphona selling copies of Chapter 1 of The Fox Sister! Please stop by and say hi if you're around!
Chapter 1 in print!
Hey guys! I just got word that our first few boxes of Chapter 1 are here. I should be picking them up tomorrow!
That's right, we're going to be selling copies of CHAPTER 1 IN PRINT! I'll be at WonderCon (Under Christina Strain, of course) this weekend, selling it there, and in a few weeks we'll also be selling them online. I'm super excited because they're 9" X 11.75" hardcover French Album style books.
I'll post more details tomorrow. I should have some pictures of the actual books to post then too!
I'm so excited!
Getting back on track!
We'll be uploading the new page Friday (Today) which is a day late but the good news is that things are slowly settling down and we should be back on track after this week.
Thank you guys so much for your patience. Things have been a little rough on the personal side of things and we seriously appreciate the understanding. Thank you!!
Family Emergency - Sorry again. :(
Sorry guys, sometimes the personal life has to come first.
In the meantime I'm going to be updating a few things on the site. I'm planning on making the pages larger and making several adjustments to the type so that hopefully things will be ready to go on the 1st when we put the new page up.
Sorry again, guys, thank you so much for all of your patience.
A word from the artist...
The crack I was smoking was a strain called "Christina's genius," by the way.
(hohoho see what I did there)
For serious though, I feel incredibly lucky to have met Christina and to be working on such a great project with her. She approached me in the Right Place, Right Time, and the Right Way--I usually have to turn down comic pitches from strangers because I normally don't have the time from my other projects, but for Christina's story I was willing to make it work.
I'm so glad I did! I've been learning so much because it is so different than what I usually dream up. "The Fox Sister" has been nothing but an incredible joy to work on. It's a type of story I've been wanting to see told and I'm a bit in a daze that I'm lucky enough to get to tell it! I fell absolutely in love with it, and I hope you guys love it just as much.
You probably won't see my commentary very much around the place, because this is her story and also I am normally too busy drooling over my desk from overwork, but I just want to say thank you all so much for the amazing support this comic has achieved already! I will continue to work hard and deliver
Oh, also! Since I didn't see Christina mention it in the last news post, I am mirroring the comic pages over on DeviantArt: http://foxsistercomic.deviantart.com/
Don't forget there is a twitter and an RSS feed for the comic! They have very shiny icons for you to click on at the top of the page.
Thank you! Please enjoy!
And so it begins!
So my friend Jen and I were talking a few months ago and she happened to mention that she and Jayd were friends. I was like... Oh... That girl? Psh... she's "pretty good..." and by "pretty good," I mean, "holy crap, that girl is incredible, I am SUCH A FAN." After much internal struggling, I decided to ask for her email address to see if she possibly wanted to do a webcomic with me. The following is an actual excerpt from the email:
"So yeah! Just let me know if you like it/hate it (in regards to a script I attached) and if you maybe want to talk more/punch me in the face? Win win either way, really! Right!? "
I don't know what crack Jayd was smoking, but she actually wrote me back and told me she was interested.
And I am the luckiest person alive because she has been nothing but a dream to work with.
And so... here we are! Showing you our Korean Supernatural thriller/dram-edy story. I've been asked the premise and while I think you guys will catch onto the full scope of the story in the next few pages but I'll go ahead and fill in a few blanks. Basically the majority of the story jumps forward 8 years (starting next upload) and it's really all about Yun Hee hunting down the Kumiho, which has taken on the appearance of her sister, Sun Hee. Revenge story!
Oh, and there's a white guy named Alex who gets caught up in all of it.
Two more notes~ Most of you have probably noticed, we're still working on the site! Eep! Sorry about that and please watch for further improvements in the weeks to come! ANNNND updates will be every Thursday. The goal is to upload 1-2 pages a week, so keep an eye out on Thursdays for updates!
