Hi everyone, first of all thanks once again for taking time out to read R:ILPERSONA. We're at the midway point of the first storyline, the "Identity Negotiation" Arc, and again the feedback we've received has been great! Rest assured, we'll keep coming out with weekly installments of the series every Wednesday from now until the foreseeable future. I just want to take a second to say that aside from here on ilpersona.com, you can also check out the series on:
And we're still checking out other formats that are friendly to mobile readers so that we can make sure that if you have a preferred webcomic site or platform that you'd like to see R:ILPERSONA published on, we'll make that happen ASAP. If you have any suggestions, please feel free to contact us at email@example.com and we'll check it out for sure.
Since we started publishing R:ILPERSONA in June of this year we've had the chance to connect with so many different people, from readers, other creators/artists and it has been pretty cool. I'd like to highlight two awesome cool pieces of art done by members of the Tapastic community(and you should really join, especially if you're a fellow creator or you just like to read indie comics):
-The first volume has been getting advanced reviews! Check them out here and here, special thanks to Jeff from Fanboys Inc and Ian from comicbooked.com for the review! Very positive, and constructive critiques from both and I appreciate that and the fact that they enjoyed the story.
-The next episode, "Black Magic Woman"(Publish date is 9/9/2015), is the 2nd part of the Identity Negotiation storyline and will conclude the first volume of the series. It will run from September until January, and once it concludes the first volume will be available for sale in print and digital formats, and I'll have more information about that in the coming weeks, but I can tell you that Volume 1 will go on sale the same day that Episode 3 begins, starting the 2nd story arc of the series.
-We've made a few updates to the website, the characters page has been changed with new character updates that reflect the start of the 2nd episode. Also, we've updated the website logo with an awesome illustration by one of my favorite artists to work with, Chanos. You'll see more artwork from Chanos as he is a regular contributor to R:ILPERSONA and has been for the last 3 years while the series was in development. Speaking of which, I'd also like to shout out the talented 7AHO for his contributions as well to our promotional images. It's a pleasure to work with so many talented people.
-You may have noticed but at the end of last week's installment there was a character profile (or what I like to call a "Secret File"). I'll be adding those in every now and then as the series progresses to give more information about what occurs in an episode or some more information about a particular character. So far the feedback for that has been pretty good so I'll keep adding them ;D
Well, that's it for this time. Oh, and if you are on twitter we participate in #webcomicchat(saturdays) and #comictalk(sundays) each week. Check them out if you can, lots of good interaction with tons of talented people. Until next time, take it easy and thanks for reading R:ILPERSONA each week!
