Depression set in pretty hard about 10 minutes after I graduated and realized the job-hunt was going to be eternal. That sapped a good deal of my creative energy, but I’m better now, and I’m getting back in the creative trenches. (I never stopped my part of making these comics, but Zach carried a massive creative load for the last year or so while I was basically going through the motions and letting myself disappear into lettering and other technically creative, but automatic tasks.)
This is an old story of mine, and you may have seen the cover art before from my attempt to launch it on Amazon a year or so back. I’m not very happy with how Amazon has handled my stuff in the past, so I am re-launching the story on Gumroad.
If you’re a $3 Patron for Ramen Empire, you already have access to this, and I adore you for your support.
If you’ve missed the blog posts (which would be quite easy, since I borked some of the CSS last month and haven’t quite fixed everything), you might also have missed that there’s some nifty rewards over on Patreon, which includes a paper mini of Candor, her character sheet, and a podcast where Zach and I bicker about intelligently discuss alignment. Give those a look while I’m back here trying to make my wordpress do my bidding.
I’ve got ideas for making future podcasts better, but Zach and I just wanted to talk to everybody kind of off the cuff.
We have some cool stuff up on Patreon right now, and it’s for Thieves Can’t, but I want my Ramen Empire readers to have it, because I suspect they might care about both IPs equally. If you’re supporting us at the $3 level on the Ramen Empire Patreon, here is a reward dump from the Thieves Can’t patreon page.
We’ve also put up her character sheet, for people who are curious about the stats behind the character. This might also help people who are playing the “which Ramen Empire character is playing which TC character” game. It might not, though. Zach said I have to stop helping.
And last and probably least, our Thieves Can’t Podcast, wherein we talk about Candor’s alignment, why Zach is chaotic evil, and the Mousefolk Homebrew.
Hey, since you scrolled this far down, check out our new shirt. It’s for the Thieves Can’t comic, but some Ramen Empire shirts will be coming fairly soon. Zach wanted to draw cute goblins, though, because cute goblins make everything way, way less stressful.
Shirt not your cuppa? Still want to show some support for the comic? Then consider a voluntary subscription over on our Ramen Empire Patreon. You’ll get access to the occasional book, podcast, and bonus art. It also helps us keep the lights on. Drawing in the dark stinks, so think it over!
