Cover Drop

Cover of Electric Fencer Issue 3 featuring Elliott, Lee, Lance, and Magnus engaged in battle with several Distortion Beasts. The audience looking on consists of Renée, Ronan, Tarragon, and Jiro surrounded by numerous Silver Legion Hoods. Jiro is holding hashbrowns high above his head while the Hoods are holding rocks to throw at the heroes.

Here’s the cover for Issue 3! I’ve had the Paper Mario series and JRPGs in general on the brain for a while now so I was feeling inspired to make an illustration for Electric Fencer in a similar vein. I was originally planning on adding the HUD elements as I’m a big fan of mockups, but the cover itself was already pretty ambitious and I later felt all of the added bits and bobs of the battle HUD would ultimately clutter the cover, so I decided against it. It’s a little bit of a shame because I had a few things I wanted to do with it, but ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Story Content Done

Actual story work on Issue 3 has been completed and all that’s left to work on is the cover. Here’s a little something to give you an idea of how I’m going to approach it. Really looking forward to seeing how the final product will turn out 👀

Once the cover has been updated, the placeholder image for it in the bookshelf will be replaced accordingly.

Also, with regards to posting times for the comic going forward, we’re considering having the comic show up later in the day as opposed to early morning. Maybe around 5:00 EST/GMT-5?

October 4, 2023

That’s the date. Issue 3 will launch on October 4, 2023.

I’m currently touching up the last page of the issue. I’ve got a few other bits of things to prep for the new pages, plus some other obligations to handle, so it’ll still be a while. It took a year and quite a few revisions, but I’m proud of what I’ve been able to put out.
