Oh dang, Libertyger sure is angry at Bearman. This ends chapter 3. The interlude-iary comic should come up in about two weeks but I will see about getting a few filler pieces ready in case.
Socialfist (Basic) is free to download today on Free Comic Book Day! There is a Google Docs link here! As of 2 AM it is only in CBZ format, may be buggy. Leave a comment if it is. I’ll also be posting a PDF later!
The basic version now costs $2
But wait, you want to get the bonus version?
Shit son that is a Paypal button! $5 gets you the CBZ bonus edition! And that is unlimited downloads! (And you will get the PDF when I figure that out!) The bonus edition includes over 15 pages of original content, commentary, bonus art and more!
We will be giving out free digital copies of the Socialfist Basic PDF and CBR/CBZ here on May 5th 2012!
But wait! We will also be giving out digital copies of the brand new Socialfist Bonus PDF CBR/CBZ! Extra pages! Concept art! Sketches! And a bunch of stuff! If you want in on that leave a comment below with your real email below to enter and check back this Saturday, May 5th on Free Comic Book Day to see if you won!
Attention Normal Meat Humans – The First Digital Collection Of Socialfist has been released and unless you help to get the word out, this might be the only collection ever!!!! Which is why for the rest of the week you’ll be able to download free copies of the basic Socialfist collection! Post reviews! Tell your friends! Tell your enemies!
After this week it will be $2 (and will be available as a pdf) with the profits being split between Remus the artist, and I. Remus needs cash money (since he did a great job and wasn’t paid enough) and I need interest for the continuation/relaunch.
But wait, why would you pay for something you got for free in a week? That doesn’t make sense! That is why we will also be releasing a $5 special edition filled with production art, commentary and a lot of other stuff including some pages from the initial series from the other artist that haven’t been seen in years! We are looking at about 60+ pages of content – try getting that at your local comic book store for $5! And all of that money goes directly to the creators. And it should maybe have that super special cameo page from the Kickstarter that happened a while ago!
So I am going to say that Socialfist is over for an indefinite period.
Since I’ve been in college for the past two years, I’ve been unable to make decent money and Remus unfortunately was never able to get a solid amount of money per page. Remus and I talked it out and he needs to make more money and as such will not be able to do Socialfist for now or any time in the near future.
So what does this mean for you?
I’d spent the past five years working on this series with various versions and collaborators. It taught me how to write comics, it got me to read comics and it was filled with a bunch of life lessons in the background.
For now, I am not going to work on Socialfist. Part of it came from losing half of the scripts I had written for the series when I lost my harddrive. I want some time off now from the series.
Changeling will meanwhile continue. The return of the series or any new series will depend on me finding work or a partner to produce the comic.
For the blog here, I am not going to promise anything since there is a new project in the works that the content will probably go to.
For those of you who supported us on Kickstarter, you will obviously still get your books and prizes so don’t worry about that and the books are in progress. This said, we wont be producing a second wave of books.
Thanks for your support over time and sorry about this,
Luke “Koltreg” Herr
