Sparkler Issue #020
It’s almost spring, Sparkler fans, even if it doesn't much feel like it on the East Coast. (And we just had a freak hailstorm out here on the West Coast!) So here’s a fresh, exciting new issue for all of you to enjoy!
March brings us a fabulous new installment of Windrose along with the second chapter of our charming new audio drama, The Cat Lover’s Circumstances. Plus, things get steamy in Tokyo Demons, the revolution in Dusk in Kalevia comes to a head, and two young men work through a rough patch in their friendship in the fantastic short story “Shut In Shut Out,” from Lianne Sentar and Grey Is... webcomic artist dee Juusan! And our Member Exclusive bonus of the month will be a special Skyglass side story--look forward to it!
Anyway, I’ve always felt that March is a month of transitions and new beginnings. It’s been two months since we went paywall-free on the Sparkler archive, and in that time we’ve continued to think about ways to further improve your Sparkler experience (TM!).
The most obvious change is a simple tweak to our non-paywall release schedule--for comics, we’ll be updating alternating series daily. So from now on: on Tuesday and Thursday, one new page of Windrose and two new pages of Witch's Quarry shall emerge from behind the paywall, and Mon/Wed/Fri, two new pages of "Shut In Shut Out" will be released. We'll be overhauling our series pages over the course of the month to make each individual series easier to track in our new system. And on that note...we're close to some very big surprises in the comics department that should start to roll out this month, so stay tuned!
We hope you have as much fun with our content this month as we’ve had putting it all together!
