Saints'Quarter

Latest Comic:
Hostile
Hostile

Lucas Wen prides himself on being the most practical and realistic person you’ll ever meet. Which is why it’s a bit of a shock when he finds out not only that his cousin Robin is a witch, but he’s just taken a job in the most supernaturally saturated neighborhood in New York City. Meanwhile, Roe, a young woman with a suitcase full of odd weapons and perhaps a few too many secrets, thinks things are finally going her way again when she finds a place to live other than her cousin’s couch in the form of Robin’s spare room. Before either of them can get both feet under them again, the sudden disappearance of Robin’s girlfriend, Penelope, shakes them all. Lucas, despite his best attempts to adjust to his new fantastical reality, finds that there’s really only so much that even the most practical mind can take, and Roe fears whether their new troubles are something that followed her to the ‘Quarter, or were already there.

No Page This Week

Hey guys!

Sorry for the lack of page this week, but I was unable to get page 18 finished in time to post.
With a few commissions I need to catch up on and inventory season at the store, I’m a bit at a loss for time enough to devote to comics for a few days. New pages will resume, however, next Tuesday.

In the meanwhile, you can keep up with work in progress looks at pages on Patreon, as well as get access to pages as finished rather than having to wait until Tuesdays for new SQ content.

On the main website, http://saintsquarter.com , you'll notice that the first thirteen pages are quite different in appearance than they were once upon a time. I’ve been working on gradually revamping the artwork for the first episode so that it has a more consistent visual style within itself. I’m not completely redrawing the pages*, the bones of where everything started are still there, I’m just touching a few things up here and there so that everything reads more smoothly. The progression of art will still be noticeable in places.

*You may notice already, though, on pages like 12 and 13, that some changes are a bit more intensive than cleaned up line art, ironed out dialogue, and altered text/balloon style. That’s because after going back through for the revamp, I’ve made some minor changes to some scenes that require the additional panel here and there. Later in act two, there will also be a couple NEW pages added. It will be a while yet, though, before they are complete and available online. They don’t alter the story, though, so don’t worry about having missed something.

If you’re curious about the progress of the new versions of old pages, all edited pages are available first on Patreon as I will only be making them available on the site on a scene by scene basis.

For the time being, I'm going to leave Smackjeeves with the original artwork. I may update it in the future, but for now it'll be available only on Patreon, the main website, and potentially Tapas once I make up my mind about that.

Sorry again for the delay. Thanks for your patience and thanks so much for reading!

Oops! [not an April Fools thing I swear]

Hey guys!
I wanted to apologize anyway for any mix-up page-wise in the current scene.
I accidentally misscheduled page 13 under March 10th instead of April [because I don't pay attention...] so it was up for a few hours long before it should have been. Out of order, too...

So my apologies for anyone who can no longer see the page or was confused about the jump in conversation. Page 12 will be going up here on Tuesday with 13 available on the site
HTTP://SAINTSQUARTER.COM
on the same day, here on the 10th.

Happy Easter!
Or Passover!
Or week late Ostara...

Have a good weekend~

Patreon Access!

Hey guys!
Little Patreon related announcement today:

If you haven't noticed yet in the author comments on every page, I am on Patreon.
Patrons who pledge a certain amount every month get different types of rewards depending on the tier they sign up for, including access to comic pages as I finish them starting at $5 USD.

As of today, Smackjeeves reader patrons now have this access directly through the comic site! This means that you can see the new pages right at http://saintsquarter.smackjeeves.com rather than only in the Patron Feed itself!

Saints'Quarter pages will be available anywhere from days to weeks early, depending on how much time I have between work to devote to new content!

This is great for you guys AND me, not only because your support would help me have more time to work on pages, but because I am so excited to get deeper into this world and share it with you. I am so impatient to get to some scenes, it's unreal.
So if you'd like to be able to read ahead, drop on by and pledge!
http://patreon.com/LotMinx

ALSO: If you pledge before the end of today, March 31st, 2017, you can even be entered into a raffle for personalized artwork AND a cameo in the comic!
(HALF of this episode takes place on Halloween, the possibilities are... If not endless, certainly way out there!)

Spring Special!

It's finally Spring!
There's still snow on the ground outside here and it's cold as balls, but it's SPRING!

In favor of, I've decided to offer a bit of a special reward:
Get a cameo (yourself or a character of yours) in Saints'Quarter by pledging ANY AMOUNT on Patreon!
Usually, cameos are reserved for patrons who pledge $10 or more, but if you pledge before April 1st you can get one!
Pledges start at $1USD!!

That's not all, either!
When you pledge before the end of March, you will ALSO be entered into a raffle in which you can win a full color bust of any character you choose. Yourself, your OC, a character you love from your favorite series--ANY character!

Names will be drawn and announced on the 1st! That's in 12 days!
So go pledge, take a look at all the extra sketches available for patrons, vote on April's wallpaper, and wait for the winner!

Enter the raffle here: http://www.patreon.com/LotMinx

Happy Ostara!

I'm Moving!

Hey guys!
I might have mentioned it on page once or twice by now, but
I'm moving!

Next week I'm flying up to New York and getting set up in my first new situation for February. I won't be in a more permanent place until March, so page updates MIGHT be a day or two late here and there. I will still be working on pages in the meanwhile, though.
But if there's any issue with updates over the next few weeks, this is why.
If you'd like to keep ahead of pages, patrons get to see them as I finish them. There's also WIP images and development sketches for this and other projects.
http://patreon.com/LotMinx

That is it for now. I'll keep you guys updated on the move if anything else comes up that might upset comic schedules.
Have a good weekend!
