Hey everyone!

We just reached our first Patreon milestone and that is amazing! We're so proud to have wonderful supporters like you and Aikonia would not be able to continue without all your support! Even those of you that could not become patrons but helped by spreading the word or leaving supportive comments. You're all so amazing and we are so grateful.

Okay, sorry, enough of that sappy stuff. On to the real news! Now that we've reached our first milestone, we're going to start a new series of journal entries! It will take a bit of time for us to build a buffer of pages, but you should expect them to start showing up on the Aikonia site in late February or early March.

Keep in mind that our $4+ patrons will get to see the journal entries way in advance, as we'll be posting pages on Patreon as soon as they are complete, rather than when we have a large enough buffer of them.

Again, thank you all so much for your support!
The Aikonia Patreon has been up and running for just about two months now and we’re looking for some feedback.

When we ran our initial survey for the Patreon, the response was overwhelming positive. However, that swell of support hasn't exactly been reflected in the actual amount of patrons supporting Aikonia. We want to know why there is this discrepancy. If there are things we can improve or change, we want to know what those things are to better serve you, our readers.

Thanks to your feedback and suggestions, we have decided that launching an Aikonia Patreon is the best thing for the comic going forward. By joining Patreon and becoming our patron, you can contribute as much or as little as you like on a month-by-month basis.

Don't worry if you feel like you can't contribute; Aikonia will always be free to read online. Forever and ever. We promise.

The money we raise through Patreon will go to making our lives a little easier as we work on the comic. As it stands now, we are increasingly having difficultly meeting our weekly deadline and having a small financial cushion from Patreon will allow us to focus more time on the project. We'll also be using the funds to pay for server costs and other miscellany we need to keep the comic afloat.

We hope you're all excited as we are about this new opportunity for Aikonia. Spread the word and let's all work towards making Aikonia the very best that it can be!
Hello everyone!

We’re considering running a Patreon to help support Aikonia. Please take a moment to fill out this survey to help us determine where to go from here:

Thank you so much!

Aikonia has reached yet another huge milestone! Chapter Five has come to an end and as we finish preparations for Chapter Six, we want to share some really exciting changes we’ve made to the comic and the Aikonia team.

Our first announcement is a big one: Timothy Ian Hely will no longer be writing the scripts for Aikonia. Tim’s been with us since the comic first began back in August of 2010 and we are very sorry to see him go. We look forward to seeing more things from Tim in the future and we wish him the best of luck.

Replacing Tim in the role of writer will be Corina Dransutavicius. Corina has been working with MADSOFT Games as a writer since 2011 on projects such as Project: Velyria, Me and My Dinosaur, and Marill’s Journal Entries. You can follow Corina’s personal Twitter account here.

On the art side of things, we are making a few changes. Ira Gladkova will be shifting their role slightly, focusing on the comic’s lineart and panelling. The style of comic will also be changed to better reflect Ira’s preferred style. You can check out Ira’s tumblr and twitter accounts here.

We’re also very happy to announce that Karina Weber will joining the team as our new colourist. She has previously worked with MADSOFT Games as an illustrator for Project: Velyria, Avillum, and Marill’s Journal Entries. You can follow Karina’s personal art blog here.

We want to emphasize that the changes to the art team were not made in reaction to the recent spate of criticisms in the Aikonia comic comments section. These changes were proposed way, way back at the start of Chapter Five as a way to alleviate the stress of churning out a complete comic page week after week. We want to be clear: We stand by Ira and their work and will continue to do so.

Finally, Marill’s Journal Entries ended last week. We would like to hear your feedback on the project. Would you like to see more journal entries focusing on different characters? Or would you like to see something different altogether posted on Thursdays?

Let us know your thoughts in the comments below and stay tuned for the first page of Chapter Six due out on June 29th.
