MOST RECENT [NOVEMBER] NEWS
AND PRODUCTION NOTICES:


Since I got a lot of people asking, our baby daughter Aleksandra was born a few weeks ago!



It took a lot longer than I expected to get settled in, but I think I'm getting back in to it. Since my wife was out of commission for some months, I had to pick up the extra work until she got better.


In the mean time, some interesting things happened:


1. As of this week, we are finally producing the mug sublimation ourselves with 100% quality control! : )



Nikkita has been working on getting these right, and they look awesome.
Click me to get your own home-made mug in our shop.


2. As of November 10th, the French edition of the RA books went on sale:



It was combined in to 1, beautiful hard cover book available for 26 euros through the Lapin shop.


3. I started streaming prior to my daughter's birth, but will be streaming once or twice a week when we determine how much bandwidth it uses up on our home plan (boo at data caps!). In the meantime, you can add me here and it will notify you when I go online.


4. Patreon perks are being revised to add in some neato things.


5. Audiobook version is being recorded for Patreon audio perk people.


6. RA Book 4 and Dreaminism artbook update is in progress.


7. RA now has a faithful Russian adaptation which can be found on Acomics.


8. RA journals are being properly adapted in to a webcomic format. I know a lot of people struggled with the long texts and trying to make sense of it, and I'm extremely motivated by the appreciation and positive feedback in making new art for it. It is a lot easier to digest now and many things are now animated!
You can find updated episodes on this website (as heartshroom # in the archive), or here on Webtoons.


9. New website development was put on hold but is back in progress -- we are aiming for January 2018.

Oh wow, you have been reworking the beginning quite a bit! I like that I no longer have to scroll up to see where the journals match with which pictures, though I will miss the longer narratives to read at the bottom. Is there any time estimation as to when new updates will become more regular again, though? I'm always glad to see these little updates while I wait ^^

Congratulations on the baby!

I actually quite like the occasionally very long texts that go along with the comic (often much longer than the images themselves), even though I understand that it would be difficult to reproduce that faithfully in any book format (who ever heard of a comic/novel hybrid? It would almost have made more sense to release two books side-by-side, the comic and the story texts to go with it, and have readers read both of them alternately, one "chapter" at a time).

I notice what you're doing with the Russian version... it's quite impressive, but at the same time, the new beginning to the comic (which I notice you've changed at least twice now, first adding Snippy's journal - currently' #11' - then adding another introduction prior to that one) makes it move slower at the start. Perhaps sometimes the original artistic instinct is best, or at least there might be those who prefer it? I wonder if I would've liked RA as much if I started reading it today and not years ago, and had not had the experience of being first attracted by the absurd but seemingly uncomplicated setup, with simple, short, absurd buddy gags in a mysterious landscape, and then gradually becoming more intrigued with it as things got more and more complex and the commentary on our own world. With the new "expanded special edition" beginning, there's a lot more exposition to wade through right at the start, and a lot of the mysteries that I only figured out much later are introduced very early on. For example, it is now clear almost from the beginning that Pilot is actually sane and not just imagining things, while Snippy is actually the one who often can't see what's going on -- many of Pilot's memories are illustrated in realistic style, rather than cartoony Pilot style, making it clear that they were real events and making it easy to figure out what he's talking about. (originally, this was a major revelation for me about halfway into the comic)

I wonder, is there ever going to be something like a "Star Wars original edition" for RA? (I'm actually not saying I necessarily prefer the original -- but I'm simply not sure. It's undoubtedly a different experience)

I'm also kind of worried that the attempt to adapt the entire comic in the same style as the new beginning will take a very long time, postponing new story progression for quite a while. The Russian translation is 47 pages in already, and it still has not reached page' #5' of the original. Going by that, is the currently 254-page-long comic going to be expanded to over 2000 pages?

I haz a question! I noticed that since 0 and 1 are now split into multiple comics and journals, the audio journal is gone. Will the audio be put back on the new website, or will the only access to it be through Patreon?
