Hey, guys! We're here with more news on Off*Beat, Jen Lee Quick, and Sparkler Monthly!
First of all, we've been running a Kickstarter to help Sparkler Monthly run for another year, and our first Stretch Goal is that elusive Off*Beat Audio Drama--a project we've wanted to do for two years now! We're in the last few days of the Kickstarter, so any signal-boosting is appreciated. In addition, Jen Lee Quick is doing specialty commissions/original art tiers at $180 for that Kickstarter, and four of the five slots have already sold...so this is your last chance to grab one! Check it out. :3
If you didn't hear, Sparkler's back chapters went free-to-read last year, which means that every chapter of Off*Beat--from Chapter 1 to the Epilogue--can now be read online totally free. So it's easier than ever to share this great story with your friends. <3
In addition, did you know that Jen did a new chapter of Off*Beat back in June?! True story! :D It's a deleted chapter from Volume 3 that she went back to draw, and it includes some great moments (including a squee-worthy dream sequence filled with school uniforms!!). Read online here, or download below:
In other Jen news, she finished Volume 1 of her Wild West suspense/horror series Gatesmith a few months ago (ebook and paperback coming soon!), and now she's returning to her LGBT+ fantasy Witch's Quarry!
Some of you guys probably remember this webcomic--Jen worked on it between Volumes 2 and 3 of Off*Beat, while TOKYOPOP still had the rights. We're happy to say that we're re-releasing Witch's Quarry in a revised, all-color edition, and Jen's going to do new pages...starting in Issue 25 of Sparkler on August 11th! We've already started releasing the back chapters with new colors and text, so you can check that out now! And we hope we'll see you in August for the new pages as well, because this comic freaking rocks. :)
