Volume 3 hits the digital shelves, complete with new Cool Fantasy Map published on 2 Comments on Volume 3 hits the digital shelves, complete with new Cool Fantasy Map

The ebook of Leif & Thorn Volume 3: Creeping Vines is now available! Readers who preordered it through Kickstarter got the first crack, but anyone who missed the campaign can finally buy it on Gumroad.

Volume 3 cover

The ebooks of Volumes 1 and 2 are available in the same store — along with the paperback versions, if you’re into those. (The printing of Volume 3 is in progress as we speak.)

Along with song lyrics, fancy recolored strips, and a bunch of exclusive bonus sketches, this is the volume where I had a new map done.

Advertising Your Webcomic On Twitter (a how-to and a case study)

Advertising Your Webcomic On Twitter (a how-to and a case study) published on 5 Comments on Advertising Your Webcomic On Twitter (a how-to and a case study)

I couldn’t find anyone to talk with about webcomic advertising on Twitter…so I went out and did my own. Here’s how it went.

(This is part of the “how do I webcomic?” series, with useful information on all kinds of comicking-related topics.)

Done a couple months before the Leif & Thorn Volume 3 Kickstarter, because I wanted to see if it was a promising way to advertise the book.

Not going to describe all the step-by-step setup, because there are a lot of generic “how to run a Twitter ad campaign” guides out there already. But I’ll start with some general notes about Stuff I Did, then move on to Useful Tips I Learned.

A wave of low-key website upgrades

A wave of low-key website upgrades published on 7 Comments on A wave of low-key website upgrades

I’ve been rolling out a bunch of small-but-useful updates to the Leif & Thorn site lately, and wanted to show them off a bit!

Sorted by volume

As the print volumes build up, I got to thinking there should be an obvious way to jump between them in the digital archives.

…yes, you can do it on the Archive page, but I wanted something even more obvious. For the potential reader who picked up a paperback first, and is visiting the URL on the back for the first time.

So now those jumps are in the row of links above each comic!

Because servers would rather have browsers ask for “one large image” than “lots and lots of tiny images”, the base image looks like this:

If you got to make a live-action adaptation of Leif & Thorn, who would you cast?

If you got to make a live-action adaptation of Leif & Thorn, who would you cast? published on 6 Comments on If you got to make a live-action adaptation of Leif & Thorn, who would you cast?

Pretend for a minute that your budget is unlimited, the reach of your casting call is global, anyone you pick will have no trouble learning whatever language(s) we film in…oh, and the set/crew will magically stay COVID-19-free. It’s a fantasy, okay, we do what we want.

Which actors would you cast to play the Leif & Thorn characters?

Who plays Leif? How about Thorn? The knights? The servants? The magical girls? Your favorite secondary character?

The Leif & Thorn wiki is back up, and sparklier than ever

The Leif & Thorn wiki is back up, and sparklier than ever published on No Comments on The Leif & Thorn wiki is back up, and sparklier than ever

After some serious code finagling, Crystalpedia is functional again!

In some ways it’s more functional than before. I decided to roll up my sleeves and edit the main template PHP — I’d been nervous about touching it, so I kept relying on plugins that splice in bits of code you have to upload in separate little files. Pretty sure an outdated plugin was part of why the site broke in the first place.
