Do these folk look familiar? We last saw the Robber Boss (or “Pirate King,” as Pakku would probably call him) on this page. Actually, you can make out the young lady there as well, in the background on the left. She just featured more prominently on this page so if you were curious what all the fuss was about…well, now you know. 🙂

TIME SENSITIVE ANNOUNCEMENT!! One of my good webcomic buddies, the talented Mr. Heimpel of Ignition Zero is 30 hours and $400 away from their Volume One Kickstarter Stretch goal! Please support him! I’d love to see those lovely natural media pages on snazzy, watercolor paper!

To all comic creators interested in the SpiderForest community, we are open for auditions during the month of July! The Guidelines are here! It’s a great little community that I’ve already learned quite a bit from, and many of my current readers were introduced to my story through generous links from fellow SF members. If you are curious, but have questions, just email me!

Speaking of SF…As part of the Spider Forest community, we’re doing weekly features. This week’s comic is THE CYANTIAN CHRONICLES – Welcome to Cyantia, a lush, unspoiled world inhabited by the Cyantians: immigrants who were stranded on the world by a race of ancient creatures in search of a cure for a disease that eventually wiped them out. Life goes on and generations have been born on this world, going through the normal cycles of conflict and peace to this day. But that is about to change.


Children visit this site. Moderate your language accordingly.

“Auditions” Love it…going to have to start referring to application season as “auditions” from here on in…LMAO!

Getting some back fill on the things that happened so quickly in the previous chapter.

You missed a text box, Robin. 🙂

Love the expression on the woman’s face though!


Fixed. Thank you.

I don’t know what you fixed, but in the fourth text box I still see “coud” instead of “could”. Just in case that is a second typo. (Because they travel in pairs. Or something.)

It’s interesting to see how much your art has improved since just that first page you link to with the Robber Boss! Lookin’ good, Robin.

I am definitely interested in applying to SF, I think. I’ve been wanting to get of ComicFury almost since I set up there, haha, and the community aspect sounds great! Thanks for the tip.

I know!! Isn’t it crazy how much can change in a relatively short time?? That wasn’t even that long ago!

The SF community is very welcoming and friendly. It’s very much a you-get-out-what-you-put-in kind of place, but the forum-folk are always willing to share knowledge and experiences. I’ve also gained a lot of great readers through SF members, and a lot of our work is in similar veins, so the cross-over is high. It could be a good fit! Can’t hurt to try!

I guess I’m a little unclear about what Spider Forest does/is. I love what I’m reading about the community aspect and I’d like to submit my comic for review, but I also like my CMS and having complete control over my HTML/CSS and templates. (I’m a web designer by trade!) Is there room for me to get fiddly with my design in the SF interface?

Spider Forest is a community and link exchange. While they DO provide hosting, you can also have your own independent site. That means you can have as much control over your design as you choose, depending on who you go with. For example, I am self-hosted. I have 100% control over my design, as long as I have the small rotating ad bar at the top of the site. You could also have a free site on SmackJeeves, The Duck, ComicDish, etc. OR you could apply to have your work hosted on SF. I don’t know the restrictions that might exist for the SF interface, but if you want to get into the nitty-gritty of that, I would contact RanJado, the Spiderforest admin & founder.

Jeez! You’d think those passengers behind him would grab him and wrestle him to the ground. I agree about the expressions. Good all round.

And thanks for the link to the reminder page. That was helpful. <3

That’s one of the things I’ve always found fascinating about group dynamics. Get a crowd of about five or more, and suddenly everybody is waiting for somebody else to do something.

I remember a quote I really liked which was, to paraphrase, “What makes a hero is not courage, but the will to act.” Wish I could remember where that was from!
