New favicon!

JitterbugJive
It's a small update, but I added a favicon to the website so now people can see a recognizable symbol on their browsers. It's the flower on Suzie's favorite shirt over Coach's hair colors (which I know is also the pansexual flag but that's fine too)

While I'm here might as well talk about progress on the comic so far. I've actually finished chapter 8 of the comic and have all of chapter 9 sketched, so it's pretty far ahead right now and I'm excited about that. Even still, I'm going to try my best to keep as far ahead as possible especially since in May I'm going to be really busy training for a new career path to keep me afloat. I have pages currently queued up until July, so things should be fine, but I want to have an even longer queue set up by the time May comes around. I don't know what my work schedule is going to look like once I get a job but I'm going for part time so I have time for my comics.
Rest assured I don't intend to change my update schedule for My Magic Grandpa, it'd take a lot for me to even consider doing that with just how much I want to tell.

Future change to capter format

JitterbugJive
So after doing a handfull of chapters I've come to one very obvious conclusion: 24 pages per chapter is not enough to tell everything I want to tell. There have been multiple instances where I wish I could have had just a few more pages to add a little more depth to the story, and from critique I've gotten the pacing comes off a little rushed at times.
This current episode will be 3 chapters, all 24 pages, but after that all chapters will be either 28 or 32 pages. Already the scripts are looking a lot more plump and complete, and I don't feel like I have to struggle to squish in certain details I was hoping to add at some point. This should make the world just a little more immersive and allow more exploration of the characters.
I'm very excited for where the story is going, while I enjoy this current episode it's the next one that's my favorite, and the one after that really ups the stakes for the rest of the series.

Thanks for reading, I hope you enjoy what's to come!

Minor website fixes

JitterbugJive
So these are just little things that were driving me up the wall but I'm proud of the fixes even if they were minor.
For one thing, there are now very clear 'save/load place' buttons. Originally I didn't even know I HAD those buttons because they were just these super tiny, vague icons of locks that you'd only really know what they meant if you mouse over them, and that's even if you notice them in the first place.
Next, the rating stars. They were originally tiny and gray and hard to see against the yellow background they had, and I knew it'd be even harder for yellow color blind people to see, so I made them a more contrasting rainbow with little white numbers in them to make it very clear what they are for.
There are still a couple of things I'd like to add to the website, like buttons to alternate sites such as twitter and patreon, and these cute little borders I made back when the comic was on smackjeeves, but I'll have to figure those out or get help on them another time. For now, enjoy the little extra tweeks to make the site easier to use.

EDIT: Alt website link buttons added! And tomorrow the borders will hopefully be added as well :3

New Bonus Content Link Added - In Character Q&A!

JitterbugJive
So my patreon has a goal where if active, I will answer some questions in character as Coach and Suzie (And possibly more characters from the series)
I've done quite a few of these already, but I never linked them here. So now on the bonus content page you can find a link to the Q&A and get to know Coach and Suzie a little better outside the comic! Feel free to send them questions, too! Anonymous questions are allowed so you don't need a tumblr account to send asks!
Enjoy!

Affiliates

JitterbugJive
Forgot to announce this earlier but My Magic Grandpa has an affiliates page now! You can find other comics this way!
If anyone wants to affiliate it's simply a matter of link swapping, just PM me if you're interested. Requirements are that the comic is at least 10 pages long, is legible, and isn't pornography.

Looking For Affiliates

JitterbugJive
I don't know if anyone reads the blog entries here but just in case they are, My Magic Grandpa is looking for affiliates! In short, this means that I will link your comic on the mmg website on an affiliates page, and you link back to mine on your comic webpage somewhere.
You can reach out to become an affiliate by sending me an email at discordjive@gmail.com titled 'Affiliate', provide me a link to your comic and a discription of what your comic is about. Also give me a 300x300 or less thumbnail for your comic to be linked from.
My only requirements are that your comic be at least 10 pages long, you are currently updating it, it is rated Young Adult/Teen or under, and is decent reading quality. (If it's hard to read, or just really poor quality in general I can't advertise it)
If for any reason you need to go on a hiatus let me know, otherwise if I see your comic hasn't updated in over a year, I will remove the affiliate link.

Hope this works! Thank you for reading!
 

Coming Next: The Reaper's Cabin

JitterbugJive
Now that I've posted the pilot, I'll be using the rest of the month to upload a bonus story that takes place within the same world. It's about a boy who gets lost in Limbo and meets Death. I'll be uploading 2 pages at a time so that the whole thing can be up by the end of the month. It's 21 pages long.
And then January 1st is when the comic officially launches! To be honest I was hoping I'd have more done ahead of time, but with my job and me going full time recently, I've had hardly any time to really work on the comic. Still, I have enough pages ready now to go through most of January, and I'll try to get more drawn up before then so there's somewhat of a steady update system. It'll update 3 days a week until I catch up with the pages, then it's hard to say what the update schedule will be but I will attempt to get 3 pages done each week if I can help it since this is a long series.
I also have a couple of friends working on the site coding to make it more presentable, it's going to look a little weird for a bit as they tweek bits and pieces of it but we're hoping it'll be ready by January.
Excited to be here, and excited to get this show on the road!
