So this has been a long time in the making, but HOME is back. So what the hell is HOME? Let’s talk about it.

WHAT IS HOME?

Home is a brand new comic I’ll be launching starting NOW. The cover is free for all. The guts will be subscriber only.

UH OH! NEW COMIC WHAT ABOUT THE DOJO?

The Dojo will ALWAYS BE FREE and ALWAYS BE MY TOP PRIORITY!

OK. PHEW. WHAT’S HOME ABOUT?

HOME is about 1, 2, 3, and 4 (yes that’s their names) braving the dangers of space to make their way home. It is a wordless, silent comic.

FORMAT? RELEASE SCHEDULE?

The comic will be black and white. It will also be wordless. Home is a silent comic. It will release 1 page per week. The current aim is for it to be told in done in one issue format. No long dojo style arcs…. although there is the over all arc that the crew is heading home. If you remember HOME was previously intended to be all ages.. it is MOST DEFINITELY NOT now. The audience is intended to be mature, just like with Raven’s Dojo.

HOW WILL I READ IT?

Home will be available via Patreon (which I’ll be making active very soon) and also Ravenperez.com (which I’ll be making active very soon). It is also my intent to make issues of Home available for sale digitally and via print upon completion of an issue.

WHY NOW?

When I made the dojo black and white my very first goal was to try and see if I could do a book a year with the dojo. I found out I certainly can. My new goal is to see if I can keep that pace and take on these 1 page a week side comics like Home. They help the dojo in that they generate excitement for ‘new projects’ and also give me something cheaper to sell (than a full book). Additionally they make an easier point of entry for a new reader who might be intimidated by the dojo’s higher page count. For example it might be easier for them to pick up a single issue of Home than staring down the barrel of hundreds of pages of Raven’s Dojo. Additionally Raven’s Dojo book 1 was created in 2008.. so it would create a more recent point of entry for the level of work I’m currently operating at.

YOU MENTIONED SIDE COMICS?

The Dojo is intended to remain my primary focus. Home is intended to be one of several shorter projects I intend to complete on the side. So while I may do several issues of Home in a row, I may just as likely do a single issue of Home and then move on to a new, unrelated side comic. Some side comics may feature stories I intend never to return to. It’s really up in the air. The consistent theme is that they will be shorter projects that tend to avoid long arcs and stand on their own.

CAN YOU TELL ME MORE ABOUT THE PATREON AND RAVEN PEREZ.COM ? 

More info is coming on that SUPER soon. Just gotta get the last lil bits in place.

 

I’m excited for this next step! It was meant to happen AGES ago, but here we are. Ah well. No time like the present! At any rate all it REALLY means is more comics from me for you. However you choose to consume them. If you’re there weekly as a subscriber or if you just wait for the digital issues or even if you only read the dojo and skip the subscriber comic—I’m excited to be bringing some of these long cooking side comics to you!
