Hey, everyone! It’s been a SUPER LONG TIME COMING, but I’m here to say that Third Kingdom is finally about to premier online! My original plan was that we would finish the entire first chapter before we start publishing online, but even though we’re actually pretty close to that goal, we've decided to publish now, and here’s why:
This comic has taken us both a lot of time and effort. We've each put so much work into it, even though Tae’s got a lot of projects going on and I've been trying to balance university with comicking. Not to mention, a LOT has happened in both of our lives since we've begun this endeavor, but we persevered. We both still have a lot to learn (but Tae is awesome) and we hope you’ll be there to watch us grow.
More about 3K’s online release:
Third Kingdom will premier simultaneously on a few different sites exactly one week from today, on 2/18/15. After that, the comic will update every Wednesday! Patrons will get two pages every week as thanks for their support, along with access to concept work that’s already uploaded to our Patreon
Sites that Third Kingdom will be hosted on for now:
On my dA! Here’s a link to the folder
Tapastic (Page formats may be altered slightly to better suit Tapastic’s layout)
Eventually I’d love to get us our own website, but that will only be possible with the help of future Patrons!
Fear not, friend! I will explain.
Tae and I are making a comic called Third Kingdom (also known as 3K. By who…? By me…) 3K is a faux medieval story. Note the “faux”! We did this for fun, so our idea of “medieval” is not always accurate, not to mention that the characters live in a fictional land that wouldn't entirely follow the same historical path of our world. 3K starts with the story of a knight named Hugh and his encounter with a group of rebels, led by a man named Jarin. This is a story written by me, areyoshi, so if you’re not that keen on men kissin’ men, you might wanna back out now. The story is heavy on plot, but really, I’d rather you not be here if you have some weird hang up about people falling in love.
“I’ve read this whole thing, but actually I don’t know who you or Tae are…”
Call me AY! Or areyoshi, or whatever! I used to go by alexyoshida, maybe you know me that way? I am the creator of a webcomic that’s been running since 2009, known as Optical Disarray. It follows the story of two unfortunate, dysfunctional men named Jesse and Eliot. They have anti-climactic adventures with a magical fox named Kai. If you want, you can read that here
I’m the original creator of Third Kingdom, and I wrote the script! I also draw the comic and do the lettering.
Tae is… Tae is awesome! Tae has like, 5 gazillion comics, and yet he still finds time to help me out and be a really awesome friend, oh my gosh. I love Tae, and you should too. Tae’s biggest projects right now are Bad Luck, Inspirit, and Haunted. Bad Luck and Inspirit take place in the same (occasionally supernatural) world, and Haunted is about a Maltese tiger girl who sees ghosts. You can read all of Tae’s comics here
Tae does the colors for 3K, and he’s become something of a co-creator since we've begun. He’s responsible for a lot of the side characters you’ll meet in the story.
“I READ ALL OF THAT! What now?”
Now you can get hyped for 3K’s premier next Wednesday! Please feel free to visit our Patreon and have a look around
