I did some new art of some of our characters in celebration of Issue 2! They’ve been added to the site banner rotation and you’ll get a random one each time you reload the homepage. There’ll be more to come soon.
And with that, Issue 1 comes to a close. I hope you enjoyed reading it as much as I enjoyed working on it!
As stated in the previous update, we’ll be taking next week off to finalize Issue 2 and get it uploaded to the website and ready for launch when we return on November 17. Mark your calendars, because we’ll be back in 2 weeks with more Electric Fencer, with new characters, more intrigue, and more adventure coming your way.
A lot’s happened over the last few weeks and so I decided to treat myself to a little Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl. Great stuff, except for the part where Patrick Bowser-cided me three times in a row and won.
So Issue 1 is coming to a close very soon, and with that, rather than the usual two pages, we have three pages going up next week. I really liked the color job I did on these pages, so here’s hoping you like them too when they go up.
Following that, the comic will take off for a week to finalize the edits on Issue 2 and prepare the cover. Additionally, while the pace for Issue 1 was admittedly all over the place and a bit wonky, Issue 2 is a little more even-keeled and as such, we’ll dial it back to one page a week for the time being as we continue working on content for the site and experimenting with a good format for site updates. We might throw an extra page or two in an update here or there to help with pacing, depending on what’s happening in the story.
For now, April O’Neil has an interview with Old Betsy and the Five Avengers.
Thanks to everyone who stopped by our booth at 3RC Lite! If you’re reading this and came from the convention, welcome! We’re glad to have you here. This weekend, we debuted a new version of Electric Fencer Shorts! at the convention, which featured a new final panel. I’ll have that up on Patreon and Ko-Fi in a few days.
Until next time!
Once again, this weekend I’ll be at 3 Rivers Comicon Lite with things to see and stuff to check out, so if you’re in the area, come by my booth and see what we’re all about and what we’ve got planned!
I made a few cosmetic changes to the site. Picked a few colors I felt worked better for the branding of the series and modified the menu a little bit.
I’ve also been diligently at work on prep for the 3 Rivers Comicon and will have lots to sell and give away. It’s been an exhausting (but also fun and interesting) process and I’m looking forward to seeing where things go with doing cons and the like. It’s also pretty expensive, and I don’t exactly have Renée’s levels of disposable income, so if you’re enjoying Electric Fencer so far, maybe consider supporting us on Patreon or Ko-Fi, or even buying something from us on RedBubble? It’d be super cool if you did :v
Running a webcomic is exhausting business, something I’d completely forgotten about in the several years I haven’t done it.
I’ve done a lot of work since launch both online and off, including adding links to our Patreon, Ko-Fi, Twitter, and RedBubble pages, quite a bit of art for an upcoming announcement, small additions to the cover page for Issue 1 as well as adding it to the page lineup for Issue 1 (I’m really happy with the cover art, so I think it deserves to be seen at full size), and initial work on Issue 3! Yes, believe it or not, we actually have quite a bit of material in the pipeline before we start hurting for content.
If you’re not already a Patreon or Ko-Fi supporter, please consider pledging your support as I’ll be posting some content there very soon, including the very first issue of Electric Fencer Shorts!, which you’ll be able to read in full once it’s up. No drip-feeding of story there. The Shorts! will still feature our heroes, but tell different kinds of stories pertaining to them, whether they’re worldbuilding, character development, or just a really silly joke we wanted to see brought to life. There will be one for every issue and they’re exclusive to Patreon and Ko-Fi supporters, and I hear FOMO really sucks.
Pages 6 and 7 of Issue 1 will be up on Wednesday morning. I’ll see you guys here in a couple of days!
Hello and welcome to Electric Fencer! We’re happy to have you join us on this little journey we’ll be taking with our heroes!
Today is our inaugural update and in celebration, the first five pages of the series will be posted. Admittedly, they’re a little jank compared to the remaining pages, but I promise the rest is worth the wait. That said, we have a Patreon and Ko-Fi set up (see the sidebar to the right) and if we reach $500/month between both of them, I’ll redraw the first 5 pages to bring them in line with the rest of the series stylistically.
That’s it for today. Throughout Issue 1, check back every Wednesday for two new pages as our story unfolds. See you soon!
