See that on the right hand side? That lists the most downloaded comics over at ManInSuitComics.com. You guys have no idea how happy I am to see the top three comics in their respective positions.
DARE! 7, coming in at number 3 (currently) has the title character of Jake only appearing in two pages. Some may say that this is why it is so popular. Jake and Co have a very special place in my heart, having been created for a radio serial almost 10 years ago (jeez I’m old) by my friend Philip Wilson and I. True story, I voiced Jake. It was awesome. I’ll put some of them up here some time. Maybe.
Vanessa Sloane 6 was released yesterday (July 23),and has already clocked in over 120 downloads. This has boggled the minds of both Mike and I, and can’t thank everyone enough for giving it a read. Vanessa is a character that I LOVE to write, and will continue to do so until Mike pries her from my cold dead hands. What I really love is that the earlier Vanessa issues have seen a jump in the downloads, meaning you guys are going back and reading them THANKS!
Finally, Squared Circle 1 is sitting up top at 220 downloads. Mike was not too sure how SC was going to do - the web comic failed miserably. But the power of the reboot has propelled it to the top of the MISC charts. So much so Mike and I are currently reposting the original series here, and may have a bit of a surprise in store for you guys a little down the metaphorical track.
Thank you to everyone who is or has downloaded one of our comics, Mike and I do this to share our stories (and get our work out there in hope of getting noticed).
A quick mention that we do have a Patreon page - and a personal favour from me. All funds from the Patreon page (as little as $1 a month) goes directly to Mike. He really does all the heavy lifting on the comic side of things and would love it if you all could support him. Please.
The Patreon page has subscriber only content, and the comics are released there first. You will not be disappointed. I hope. No, you wont.
Thanks again peoples. If you keep downloading our comics, we will keep writing them.
Last Friday we passed 1000 downloads of our comics!
Thank you to everyone who took the time to download and check out our books. You don’t know how much it means to us.
I’d like to remind everyone to subscribe to our Patreon so that we may continue to produce our comics for your enjoyment!
1000 downloads. Awesome.
You guys have no idea what this means to Mike and I. After SCW went largely unnoticed as a web comic, we both doubted that anyone was reading out work. But we kept at it and now Man In Suit Comics is just beginning to gain some traction.
What is wen more exciting is that Squared Circle 1 - the comic starting those from the previously mentioned ill-fated web comic has over 200 of those 1000 downloads.
We can’t say thank you enough you guys! We both hope you continue to read and enjoy our comics, cos we will keep putting them out!
