Hey, it’s been one year since I uploaded Page One of Tangled River! Anyone out there who’s been reading since the beginning? I thought this would be a good time to fill you in on what’s going on with the comic.

I’ve managed to keep on schedule- 52 Wednesday updates. When I started I had a 15 page head-start, which has since dwindled down to 5, which is okay- no need for me to stress out too much. I’m pretty sure I can keep up with a page a week, and though I’d like to someday get that up to twice a week, I know at this point I couldn’t manage that without a decrease in quality.

Those of you who have been following TR for awhile have probably noticed that the story has been unfolding at a pretty leisurely pace. We’re reaching the point in the story now where things are coming more into focus, and the direction of the plot is more easily discernable. Thanks for hanging in there.

It’s way too early for me to start thinking about printing some kind of Tangled River collection, though I would love to do it someday. First, I would have to get the readership way up. I’m happy with following I have now, but it’s nowhere near large enough to attempt a Kickstarter or some other way of financing a big print project. The Project Wonderful ads I’ve been running have been a big help in finding new readers, but I can’t afford to invest too much in that. I’m prepared to be patient, I’m focusing on finishing a big enough chunk of the story to fill out a reprint volume- which will take at least another year.

This year I’ve managed to get a couple of reviews in the web press- a feature spotlight on The Duck Webcomics http://theduckwebcomics.com/news/2015/aug/31/featured-comic-tangled-river/
and a review on Best Webcomics
http://best-webcomics.com/tangled-river/

If any of you out there can help get Tangled River some notice, I’d really appreciate it. Also, thanks to everyone who’s written comments and/or voted for TR in on TopWebcomics (link at the top of the page).

Anyway, I’m dedicated to improving the comic, staying on schedule, and hopefully keeping readers happy. On to Year Two!

I've noticed some other webcomics get other artists to recommend them in their comments. I've taken on new comics that way. Also by the ads. But another way is to invite other webcomics artists to do a non-canon page for you in order to build up your buffer. Those other artists then bring traffic to YOU that way (and of course, back to them).

You could also invite fan art of your characters.
