SpiderForest Sci-Fi Comics

The welcome parade continues for new SpiderForest members! This week's featured comics all have a Sci-Fi theme:

In the science-fantasy comic Retroblade, in the year 3007, a reality crash has wiped out almost everything. The last known survivor, Axel Kepler, is working his way backwards through time, trying to figure out where it all went wrong.

The post-apocalyptic comic The Demon Archives tells the stories of survivors struggling to rebuild civilization. A daunting task, to be sure -- and the demons aren't exactly helping.

In The Ferrin, young Elanor goes for a year of study at an off-world monastery. It's a great opportunity to play with -- er, that is, to study -- the cute winged wolf-like creatures who live there. So fluffy!

Spark of the Day:

The Adventures of Shan Shan
The Adventures of Shan Shan

Shan Shan can see and hear things that shouldn't exist -- and when one of those things attacks him at school, he's offered a chance to become a Guardian. Can he handle the ordeals of becoming a hero, saving the world, and being a teenager?

SpiderForest Ahoy!

Hey, here's some good news: True Magic was recently accepted into the SpiderForest Webcomic Collective! I'm very happy to be part of it. The community seems to be full of super-nice people and features some high-quality comics, so check them out if you're looking for more good stuff to read. ♥

Everyone is welcoming the new members, and this week we're featuring three comics of my favorite type: cute and cheerful!

Xylobone Tomes follows the adventures of a snarky lich and his adorable assistant. They're on a quest for knowledge in what looks to be quite an intriguing world. I love the clean, stylish artwork and character designs.

Random Battles is about a family who's just moved into a peculiar new town. Their daughter's obsession with magical girl anime turns out to be pertinent, since, in this town, magical girls just might be real.

Witchery Etc. also features a girl who is magical: a lively young witch with a headless (yet otherwise perfectly healthy) sidekick. There are also some surprisingly fluffy ogres!

Happy Comic Anniversary!

True Magic has been going for seven years now! (Or twelve, if you count Ye Olden Times before The Great Reboot of '08.)

Thank you so much for reading!

And a world of thanks to the people who support the comic on Patreon! Every dollar makes a huge difference, and True Magic absolutely exists thanks to you. ♥

I want to make the comic's next year even better. Making stories for you guys is the most fulfilling work I can imagine, and I'm going to keep working to improve until I can make it my full-time job for real.

Here's to the next year of True Magic! I hope you'll have as much fun reading it as :D and I have making it. ♥

Northwind Returns!

Northwind, one of my favorite webcomics, just started updating again!

If you enjoy True Magic, I'm pretty sure you'll like Northwind as much as I do. It's a fun urban fantasy adventure with an intriguing story, charming characters, some delightfully silly moments, and... did I mention that it features handsome angels with fabulous hair?

Go check it out, my friends! ♥

Happy September!

This is my favorite time of year. The weather is cooling off, the holidays are getting closer, and True Magic's anniversary is coming up on the 16th. (Also, I'm pretty sure I'll have another cool thing to tell you about next week!)

If you're enjoying the comic, remember that you can help me create much more of it by supporting True Magic on Patreon! The wonderful support we're receiving so far has made it possible for me to keep TM updating steadily, every week, for over a year now -- and with just a small additional boost, I could afford to take comic production to the next level, and start treating TM as my full-time job. More pages for everybody!

In a nutshell, Patreon is similiar to Kickstarter -- except that instead of raising a huge sum for a one-time project (like a print book), patrons pledge a small recurring donation to keep an ongoing project (like this webcomic)... well... ongoing! Ideally, many readers each contribute a tiny amount. With your powers combined, that full-time funding goal is well within reach!

The best part is, you don't even have to wait for us to hit the goal -- the moment you make a pledge of any size, you get the instant, patrons-only reward of seeing the next page (often two or three pages) before anyone else in the world.

No matter what, True Magic will always be free to read right here. Patron support helps me to keep paying my rent while making a lot more free comics for the world to enjoy.

Everyone wins!

As always, thank you for reading! ♥
