Soapboxes, Charity, and Geekery

I got on my soapbox earlier this week and attempted a motivational thing for both artists and readers alike. You should read it. Mayhaps, it will make your day brighter!
Star Cross'd Destiny is super stoked to be participating in Comics Creators for Freedom this year. Please check the site out and donate if you can. This year's theme was awkward school photos, so by decision of SCD's Twitter followers, our favorite little raincloud will be posing as her 9 year-old self. All the proceeds of this campaign go to benefit Love146, a charitable organization whose goal is to end child trafficking and exploitation.
This page took nearly a month to complete between the amount of panels, interface inlays, and details. I'm super happy with it though. Miah's tech was so fun to illustrate and color it bordered on guilty pleasure. That said-
The vote incentive will update often with full shots of Miah's tech interface showing some cool insight into the oncoming storm that is the Betaverse in the form of super geeky stat cards. Check back often! But there will be no page next week because TURKEY. So y'all eat stuff, and I'll see you in December.
Last, but most certainly not least - if you love kitties as much as I do, y'all need to head over to Paul's, from Gallant Adventures, IndieGoGo campaign and share some love for their sweet pea Biscuit. My cats are my kids, so I know how scary something like this is - especially after almost losing my buddy Angus last year. Spread the love because kitties! And I know they would really appreciate any and all help. :)

A new scene opens as the Alphaverse heads over to the bar (one which kind of resembles Checkpoint Charlies in good ol' Nola) to find out what tomfoolery looms before them. Cameos galore, with Absinthe Junk on stage (of course), and our good buddy J. from Two Lumps and Failure to Fire getting robbed of some sweet whiskey drinks. Fun times indeed.
I did some more work on the SCD OST Volume Beta tracks this past week and got the beginnings of the opening number, Fais Do-Do. Creepy creole lullabies and epic orchestras - this one should be a sweet one to finish. Check it out!
The vote incentive is some very shiny and electric wallpaper of Juno. Be sure to grab it while you can!
Book 2 Printing and GMX!

I posted this on the ol' Tumblspace yesterday as a sort of definitive answer to whether there will be a print edition of Volume 2.
I went back and forth on it a lot, but ultimately decided after nearly a year of consistent updates and staring down the last ten pages of Volume 2 that even I would like to have it in print. This portion of SCD overcame the most shit, survived moves, hard drive crashes, shitty ex-boyfriend dramas, and more giant life changes than I can count. It shouldn't have made it out on the other side, but here we are. So why not celebrate it and toast the beginning of Volume 3? I'd love to.
So here's what's gonna happen. We're going to Kickstart it. Much like the Absinthe Junk campaign, you'll get a chance to preorder Volume 2 (in full smashing color, I might add) along with a slew of other neat stuff.
So yeah! It's coming! I'm not quite sure when, especially with the holidays looming - but I'll keep you all posted. I truly hope it all works out - it'll prove that anything can be overcome and I'm kinda psyched to really get in that mindset.
NASHVILLE! I'll be in you this weekend for Geek Media Expo Volume 5! I'll be exhibiting the in the Artist Alley and giving my super fun panel on making comic books Sunday at 10am. I will also be performing with the eclectic funk extravaganza, JonesWorld, Saturday night. So many things! Come. Join me.
The Great Migration
Subscribe to RSS
The SCD site is going to be going through the great migration in the next few weeks. We may experience some turbulence and possibly explode. Hopefully not! The amazing server and host we've had for the last near decade is finally shutting down, so we must take our conspiring elsewhere. I rarely ask, because I typically find it in poor form, but f you enjoy the comic, please consider donating. Any little bit is a huge help and we've stayed online for ten years with the incredible support of our readers. The next few months are gonna be rough though, as we adjust to a new home, with new rules and regulations. So yeah, if you dig it, drop some change in the tip jar. I definitely appreciate everyone who's donated here recently - all those donations are going to help offset the new hosting costs. You rule, friends. Let's keep ruling!
Last week we saw the rude awakening of Miah's true parentage, aligning him with fateful allegience to the Alphaverse. A useful allie? Great knowledge of the incoming enemy? Time will tell on that. Post-prison Juno continues to be a delightful idiot - I love the way her brain works when she's not being an asshole. Ha!
Site updates have been made! The store is back. Check it out. Help me see if it's broken. Fair warning - anything ordered in the next couple weeks will take a hot minute to ship while my husband and I move across the country and junk. I also added some wallpapers to the xtras section, updated the archives, and did some other general tidying up.
