What’s Morgan listening for? Oh! She wants your questions for Jen Quick. :-)
This month’s member exclusive is going to be a podcast with Jen, talking about finishing Off*Beat and starting up Gatesmith! We’ll be recording it next weekend (September 6th-ish), so please send us your questions for Jen via social media (through tumblr here, or via twitter or Facebook) so we can work them into the episode!
Gatesmith chapter 2 “The Other Red Meat” cover sketch.
Every now and then I pencil something legible.
Gatesmith is my new comic published online with Sparkler Monthly.
Sort of belated update? It’s our girliest cover yet, courtesy of the fabulous Jamie Lynn Lano, who I got to meet at San Diego Comicon last week!
Anyway, Sparkler Year 2, Issue 1 launches August 4th—as of this month, we are switching from weekly Friday updates to one monthly update (just like a real magazine!), on the first Monday of the month—so you’ll get all your regular Sparkler goodness then. Including the first chapter of Jen Quick’s new series!!
In the meantime, we hope you enjoy (and share!) a special Year 1 sampler issue, compiling the FREE first chapters of all our multi-part series. You can read them all on the site here, or download a PDF of all of them here! 300-plus pages of original, girl-oriented comics and prose, all for you!
Thanks for an amazing first year!
<3 The Sparkler Team
What a cool thing! All the first chapters of every multi-part series that ran in Sparkler the first year! FREE! Happy anniversary, Sparkler Monthly!
BTW, for what it’s worth, the first chapter of our series are *always* free. We’re mixing things up a bit in Year 2 to hopefully make our content more accessible/new-reader-friendly, but yeah, if you’re ever curious about a series of ours, the first chapter is up there on the site for you to try out! ^_^
Off*Beat vol. 3 has arrived! All those boxes are the long-awaited print editions. :-) Get yours while they’re hot!
We offer the single volume, if you’ve already bought the previous two, or a special three-volume set, if you’ve maybe got the TOKYOPOP versions of volumes 1 & 2, but feel the need (and rightly so) to have all the spines line up prettily on your shelf. Either option comes in the regular or deluxe edition, the latter of which includes buttons, a key chain, and a postcard! *squee*!!
Wow it’s been a long time since I’ve posted anything here.
Needless to say it’s been a busy year!
I still can’t believe that Off*beat is wrapped up and I’m leaping head first into my new story for Sparkler Monthly.
Here’s a work in progress for the launch just a week away!
Another preview is at Sparkler.
Hope you will give it a read :) I’m super excited!Gatesmith WIP

Finally getting a moment to scan pages and attempt to catch up on some of my favorite websites!
It looks like the smackjeeves voting has gone up and they are showcases the online comics in three waves. Lots of interesting and good comics to take a look at! Witch’s Quarry got a new nominations as well so I believe it will be up for the next round of voting. If you’re bored and looking for some interesting webcomics, I highly recommend taking a lil look around. Lots of hard work went into these comics that made the cut! The set up is a bit different so also check out the thread about voting.
And here’s a pic of the little Charles. He’s still kicking and punching me at every opportunity XD
