Created by Ray Chou

A threat looms over the town of Shoddai in the third issue of Glow, a coming of age story set in a world ruined by magic.

Latest Updates from Our Project:

Shipping Complete! Next Campaign, Social Media, Etc.
9 days ago – Wed, Sep 11, 2019 at 11:12:23 PM

Hey Everyone,

We're happy to announce that as of today we are essentially done with shipping! 

All packages have gone out. The only exception is for the four of you who ordered a Glow #3 Variant Poster. Those are currently being printed and will ship next week - the rest of your rewards should have gone out in another package, though! 

Please let us know if you have not received your package yet. We'll be sure to address any and all concerns headed our way.

Glow #4 

Thank you all for your continued support for Glow. We really appreciate it and without you could not continue making the comic. 

Kindness is a weapon.

Behind the scenes, we're lettering the next issue. Glow will return either in early December or shortly after the new year! But for now, our attention is shifting towards our other series, Skies of Fire... 

Next Campaign: Skies of Fire #6

Now that we've wrapped this campaign we are moving on towards Skies of Fire #6! Our launch date for Skies of Fire #6 is October 1st, 2019. We'll be running a ramp-up campaign via BackerKit's new Launch mailing list, so expect a preview and complimentary access to the Skies of Fire digital collection in the upcoming weeks. 

We're excited to launch this next issue and hope you'll join us in continuing the adventure! 

Social Media Consolidation

Recently Vince and I have been consolidating our social media presence. What we're trying to do is to reduce it all down to one account per platform, across Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter. 

We're in contact with the various platforms about moving things around and will be working on it this week. Stay tuned for more details!

Friends & Collaborators' Kickstarters

Finally, we have a pair of Kickstarters we want to mention today! One from a longtime fan and one from a collaborator!

Notes Volume 1

Longtime supporter Abrian Curington has a new illustration project detailing her year sailing with the Schmidt Ocean Institute aboard the R/V Falkor, as their Artist-in-Residence! Abrian is a fellow mythopoeian who loves to create fictional worlds including fun details like cartography and creature illustration. For her latest project, she took her worldbuilding skills to the real world, and in the grand tradition of great explorers like Darwin and Cameron, illustrated her observations and findings along the way! If the project sounds like your cup of tea please check it out! 

Adrenaline: Near Future

Skies of Fire RPG designer extraordinaire Eric Brunsell is self-publishing ADRENALINE: NEAR FUTURE, a forged in the dark system that allows you to recreate thrilling heists like those you see from Oceans 11 and The Italian Job! Eric is an awesome designer who loves creating frameworks for shared narrative experiences. If you love tabletop RPGs, give ADRENALINE a gander! 


--------------

Alright folks, that's it for this update, which basically wraps up the campaign! Again, the best way to reach us is by messaging directly on Kickstarter. We're happy to address any and all issues you may have, we just ask you give us a little bit of time to do so. 

Thank you all and see you next time! 

- Ray and Vince 

Shipping Update
28 days ago – Sat, Aug 24, 2019 at 12:18:01 AM

Hey Folks,

An overall shipping update this week! Here's where we stand:

What's Shipped:

The majority of the Americas, Asia, and Australia have been shipped. If you haven't received your package and you're a US or Canada based backer please give it another 7-10 days before messaging us directly. We promise we'll look into and address any shipping issues, but please please give the books some time to ship before hitting us up.

What Needs to be Shipped:

Europe and some NA orders still need to go out. 

Specifically, for the NA orders we are waiting on a batch of new T-Shirts in sizes XL-XXL to be printed. Orders with those shirt sizes are most likely going to be shipped out first week of September. 

Europe is gearing up to ship next week. Vince is gathering up supplies - magazine sized bags and boards are surprisingly hard to source in the UK. Some merchandise also needs to be shipped from our USA HQ to our London based one. All in all, we estimate finishing shipping to Europe the first week of September (two weeks)

Digital Downloads

If you're still looking for the download link for the digital issues, please check the Backer Only updates #10 and #8. 

For those of you who purchased Skies of Fire as a digital add-on, please check your emails for a download link and password. If you can't find it please message me directly on Kickstarter! 

Similarly, those of you who purchased digital art prints or posters should have received a direct download link from BackerKit via email. If you don't see or can't find this email please message me directly! 

Updated Red Star Concepts

Here are some updated concepts for the Red Star Raiders and Raptors:

Red Star Raptor designed by Giulia Frontoni

Red Star Raiders designed by Anny Maulina

Currently Working On:

In addition to fulfillment and the designs above, Mythopoeia is currently working on the following:

  • Lettering Revisions v4 for Skies of Fire #7. We are planning on releasing the issue next month.
  • Codex and Variant Covers for Skies of Fire #7. Due to some personal life events, we had to find a new codex artist for the next issue. We're on track though and are excited to announce our new artist soon!
  •  Glow #4 Color Pass v3. The next issue is looking really good. Only a couple of pages of revisions now. We can't wait to show you soon...
  • Glow #5-8 Outline / First Draft.  We have quite a detailed outline for the next arch of Glow, and our next  writing assignment is to go to draft so we can start linework production again.
  • Social Media Consolidation / Website Redesign. Vince and I have also talked about consolidating our scattered social media presence so we have one centralized place to update our fans. We also want to update our website which we haven't done in a couple of years. If only we had more time... 

--------------------

That's it for now. Thanks folks! Questions, comments, please message us directly! 

Cheers,

Ray and Vince

Shipping Underway!
about 1 month ago – Wed, Aug 14, 2019 at 08:19:37 PM

Hello Everyone,

I'm happy to announce that as of today shipping is underway! We have inventory on both continents and have begun batch shipping as many as we can.  I started shipping NA and Vince will start shipping Europe soon as well. 

 ARCANE SALLY & MR. STEAM

In the meantime, I want to give a shout out to the team behind Arcane Sally & Mr. Steam. I met the creator David Alton Hedges at SDCC last week. His series Arcane Sally  & Mr. Steam is a wonderfully styled and written steampunk pulp adventure. Their latest issue needs a little push to get over the finish line ($400 left with 20 hours to go) so please check it out if it sounds like your cup of tea

-----------------------

Thank you for your patience everyone! Please let us know if you do have any questions or comments. I'm checking Kickstarter roughly every time I work on the campaign, which is at least once a week but will be more the next two as we continue shipping orders! 

Cheers,

Ray
