The Firelight Isle by spoonbard The Firelight Isle by spoonbard
Hey all! It's been nearly 4 months since the end of Freakangels, and there's been a strange hole in life every Friday when a new episode used to go up. It's taken a lot of adjustment for me to get used to, but I've been working as fast as I can on a new project!

Today, it's past noon on a Friday and I thought this would be an appropriate time to go live with a new project, The Firelight Isle! This is a promo poster for that very project, starring the two main characters, and one mystery character!

The Firelight Isle is going to be a web-and-print comic like Freakangels, but doesn't yet have the awesome backing of a publisher that allowed me to churn out 6 pages of Freakangels a week! So, I'm going to be working on it one day a week, rain or shine, money or none, and hopefully will have an update each week with my progress. There's much more info available on, so please check it out :) You can also follow along on twitter and facebook, and I'll be putting updates on The Firelight Isle Development Blog until the comic itself is ready to go live. There are already a few entries up with artwork and some details on research!

The last thing to say is that whilst I'm happy to finish this no matter what it takes, it's a big enough project that it will take decades at my current pace. If you like the look of the project, you can back it on IndieGoGo, where I've got a crowd funding campaign, and there are other funding ideas on the website. If anyone has any further ideas, or wants to help out the project in a way I hadn't imagined, please let me know :D

Hope you all enjoy!
