just want to have a journal to link to people who are curios as i just lack the time to answer everybody :)

1 yes sunstone will be sold in printed forrm as a  series of books

2 each chapter will be 1 comic issue

3 i am currently finalizing printing arrangements

4 printed versions will feature improved art and writing, by art i mean obvious tweaks in anatomy , inking and so on, by writing i mean streamlined  while keeping true to the material and  at times better worded... with less typos....

I DIDN'T SAY NO TYPOS!

5 SUNSTONE WILL GENERALLY HAVE ABOUT 22 CHAPTERS

6  you might say it will be a  sort of a 4 big  parts to the story
first is the story of ally and lisa to a certain point, called sunstone
second is a story of alan and anne which will last about till chapter 12. ally and lisa will very much be featured in it vbut the focus will be shifted. subtitle of this one will be mercy
third will be about marion and james subtitled...not sure yet XD
fourth will be unification of all the stories with their respective finales

7 printed comics will feature extra pages unseen till now. by this i don't mean there will be hardcore sex or even more pages of sex (listens for a collective sigh)  extra pages will  be  there to polish out the storytelling and  offer some fun insights

8 AND THIS IS CRUCIAL!


standard strips will keep bein posted here first. and for free as usual.

printed versions are after all merely compilations of what is a webcomic in every sense of the way :)

once all the chapters are finished and books are out,  i will celebrate the end of this journey by giving away the full digital version of the comic.

not the one you have now, i mean the printed  comic version in digital format.
while i know many of you are eager to support this  story by buying the books, i also get that not everyone is able to.

i was there once myself. but i will not see you guys and girls  miss out on this .

so yes, ultimately all of you will see the finished version.


9 will there be hardcover editions?  if the sales numbers justify it. hell if it sells enough i might have a super deluxe leather corset bound editions XD

10 prices on printed books...that one i don't know. it depends on  printer and distribution and other misc costs. i presume it will end up being about 15 usd, but who knows, maybe even less as that end price is often cut down by   comic stores and amazon.  so that part is too early to say for now. i will keep you updated on it

that about sums it up i think.

You are absolutely amazing. As many are, I'm planning to buy the book and also do the download, spread the word, make a banner with tons of cheerleader in Shinez inspired bondage gear (okay maybe not but as close to it as possible!)

Congratulations on all your success!

I'd absolutely love to get my hands on one of these as a birthday present for my best friend... whose birthday is in july. any chance of the prints being sold until then? I know it's lots of work but it would be lovely to know a rough time when it will be released (:

I really admire your work AND enthousiasm on this. It's really really great!

I'm wondering where these comic issues are going to be released and if there's an option to get our hands on it in western Europe. I'm really glad you're offering it up for free in the end anyway, once more showing you do this because you really enjoy doing this, but I believe nothing beats a physical copy of it :D So I really hope to be able to have it here, perhaps even by postage or something, I probably wouldn't mind paying extra for that. If it's possible, of course. Printing the digital copy myself just isn't the same :)

Good luck with everything you encounter in life,
Keep up the good work!
:)

you are taking on a hell of a mission (as is your wife) Im very glad that your popularity with us is enough to justify so much work, though, as an artist, you would probably write these for your self, anyway.

Are you using a Kickstarter for this? Or how will the books be sold and any estimation to what they will cost?

YamiBrooke Featured By Owner Feb 17, 2014
I think Kickstarter would be a great idea. Probably even gain more fans who will want to buy them. Since it's mostly a matter of printing and distribution, you'd just need to estimate how much it would cost total and choose tiers and stretch goals and such. My husband and I have helped back several successful projects and it would put you at less of a risk as you'll have the money to get it done instead of having to make it back. And as for anyone who can't afford to buy the printed form, there's always a $1 option and you could do a downloadable PDF for like $5, or whatever. It still benefits the project and they get a digital version they can read without having to be on deviant art. 

It's something to look into.:) And I for one would be VERY happy to see this come to pass!

You have created, not only great entertainment, but a required texbook for future initiations prior to BDSM play, I think. "Hello. Oh, you like BDSM? Okay, read this...(hands over portable copy)...see you in a week."

I've been following the comic for a while and from the very beginning hoped there would be a print version and/or an app (check out the online comic and app by Daniel Lieske for an example - www.wormworldsaga.com/) with the official version. 

Looking forward to it!

When you finish it i'd love to know. I like the idea of a Hardcover edition but if it's release soft back initially I would probably buy that in hopes to get a hardback when released.

Mnrgh. Suspicious of this Marion chick but it can't all be gold :p 

Actually surprised Lisa and Ally's story is "pausing" so soon but I probably have lost context/ not facing burn out on one pairing. Suupah excited for Anne and Alan. Wondering how you're going to link them all back up again.

Gah how am I going to store it. Any chance there's going to be an awesome master imagine on the side.... please ? :D (I have no clue about the logistics of it. Let me have my other fantasies! :p)

Also Yay! on Ravine in March!
