Friday update! Bam!
And that’s the end of our third story! I hope you enjoyed this rather goofy tale, and if you did, I hope you’d consider buying one of the books in the shop, or perhaps dropping a donation into the collection tin, which also gets you a sketchbook pdf! Neat, huh? Go to the site to do such things!
So! What’s next? Well, for the next few weeks, we’re going to be running a slightly-odd version of Puss in Boots that I did for the Cautionary Fables and Fairy Tales anthology! It’ll be the only time you can see it online, and I’ll be taking it down when it’s done, so it’s very fancy and exclusive, oh yes. The reason I’m doing this is so I can take a bit of time to get Darken Vol 1 finished, which I’ve had hanging over my head for two years or so, and I need to get finished so as not to hold up the awesome folk who preordered it for even longer. I want to get it done before I start work on assembling the third Widdershins book, which will probably get a Kickstarter in the summer.
So, you’ve got Monday Wednesday Friday updates of Puss in Boots throughout June, and on July 3rd, the next Widdershins story, Piece of Cake, will begin! No prizes for guessing a thing or two from the title, but I think you’ll find it somewhat.. different, all the same. Hopefully this meets with your satisfaction! Reblogs, as ever, very much appreciated!
Support the comic, buy some neat swag!
Do you live in range of London? Are you hankering for something to do this weekend? Well no more! MCM Expo is in town this weekend, and I’ve saved you tons of time and searching by marking down on this here map which tables you absolutely need to be stopping at!
Find Curia Regis in the Artists Alley (previously Comic Village) on table J3, Kate’s ever-amusing Widdershins at J4, Gunnerkrigg Court at G2, and Claude’s Gronk Comics at B9!
It’s all very exciting, so come on down!
(PS: thank you to the lovely person who blew up the map into something I could mark up!)
Guys, please watch your sources on stuff. This piece is getting reblogged all over the place with various random sources. It actually belongs to Kate Beaton, and she’s mentioned that someone’s chucked a random tagline over it. Not cool.
edit - that said I don’t actually know how to edit the original source someone stuck on here.
MCM london is fast approaching (25/26 of this month - aka: NEXT WEEKEND), and I’m almost set.
I will have the full colour Issue 2 of Curia Regis with me (along with the more demure black and white Issue 1) - this will be the first time that it’s being sold in London, so if you weren’t lucky enough (#vain) to pick it up at Thoughtbubble in November and live in range of London, swing on by! If you don’t live in the UK (poor/lucky thing, delete as required), remember that curia regis does have a shop (http://whatido.bigcartel.com/)
Also for sale will be the A3 print of the Library, which isn’t for sale online because shipping is a terrible thing.
Now, back to it, for I still need to finish the next two monday’s worth of updates, and finish drawing the table display. You know, after I get home from work.
Curia Regis has updated. There have also been some minor site changes, and as the website appears to be having trouble handling text wrapping, I’ll have to post it here for now:
As you can see, the weekend has resulted in a few changes around the site. We’ve decided to include ads to the site. I’m not really sure how I feel about this, but frankly if it helps pay for my print runs and hosting in any small way, then that’s probably a good thing. If you’re running adblock on your browser, please white list Curia Regis and your other favourite webcomics. It really helps us! I’ll try to keep the ads that appear relatively unobtrusive in return.
The other new addition is the ‘donate’ button. I’m currently reprinting Issues 1 and 2, as I’ve got less than five issues left of each, and any spare pennies would be much appreciated. I’ll be providing small incentives on a monthly basis. Currently, I’m appealing to you book lovers out there! If you’d like a library of your very own to grace your desktop, donate over £1 and input your screen resolution when paypal asks for it. I will then send it to you as swiftly as I can!
As always, thanks so much for your continued reading of Curia Regis.
As many of my female peers are doing at the moment, I’m reading a book by Facebook’s Sheryl Sandberg called Lean In. The first chapter asks: What would you do if you weren’t afraid?
My answer? I’d write this blog.
Hello. My name is Meagan Marie, and I’m a person. I’ve decided I’m going to…
