Hello my friends and welcome to a new year of Void Comics. Glad you could make it^^ Let me start by saying thank you for being here. It means the world to us :)
Now, let me talk a bit about what this year has in store for us. First, we start this new year with our regular update schedule because of course we do. That means Nightfighter on Monday, Psypher on Tuesday, Black Shadow on Wednesday and Replica on Friday. Our Thursday comic Shade is on break due to being done. More issues will come at a later date of course but for now enjoy the five issues we have - the first storyline, if you will.
Both Psypher and Black Shadow will end their current issues soon, however, with Replica right thereafter. And that is good because we have a few small changes in store. I have been teasing a few changes every now and then and now we finally start implementing them, so please take a moment to read what's coming.
First, if you check the top menu you'll see that we changed it a bit. The huge START HERE button is basically what you want to click if you are new in the void.
The menu item called Read Now is where all the new and current comics are available for free for your reading pleasure. This is where most of the updates are happening, really.
Then we have the Buy Now button which will direct you directly to our comiXology page. The comics in this menu item are only available on comiXology for the time being but don't worry, our prices are very reasonable I believe. More titles will follow eventually and none of them will be available on this website. This is for people who want to support the creators - us. You'll get a DRM free download of the high quality comic if you buy one since we believe in fair sharing. You'll also find some of our mainline comics at the service if you want to own them :)
The Web Exclusives are comics we offer you for free. They are completed, which means they will not be updated. This is a bonus thing for the fans who really want to know more about the entire shared universe. These comics, as previously mentioned, are free so you can enjoy them whenever you want without paying a single cent. Of course it may be that our writer has a great idea for one of those comics and wants to continue them - in that case they will be moved to either the Read Now or Buy Now sections. But that is a topic for another time.
Then we have our Shoutbox, basically where you can shout at us for whatever reason. We do prefer not to be yelled at, though ;)
Last but not least is our Videos section, where you can watch all the videos we made for our comics. They are hosted on YouTube so you don't need to worry about payment or registering and whatnot.
Now that we explained what's what, let's get on with the previous topic. Every time an issue of one of our mainline books is completed, it will be uploaded to comiXology. This takes a bit of time, of course and until the comic is available at the service, it will not be updated on our website. That means the wait between issues will be a few weeks. And I understand that you come here and want your comics, thats the whole point of this website after all - I do hope that you understand that we need this time to prepare the next issue. We wouldn't want to run into some publishing or schedule issues due to rushing things. Those of you that are with us for a while now think of Black Shadow and nod in agreement. So I hope you give us this time between issues to ensure you get the best comic possible.
During this time of waiting we will keep the current comics in banner rotation. It's nice for newcomers and those who want to easily re-read a comic. We will also post new blog entries when a book is on break or a new issue arrives. Of course, every time a new title appears in our Buy Now section, we will also inform you.
So I hope you enjoy this new year here in the void. Drop us a line in our Shoutbox, visit us on our social media pages by clicking those nice buttons in the menu bar and support us on comiXology by buying our books or tweeting about us, telling your friends and all that.
See you around^^
