All about that minimum

Check out that …um…gun

Hey everyone! We’ve been extremely busy pumping out Issue 2 which is available digitally here and here! And as always once we’ve crossed the 500 units sold threshold we’ll release the Uncensored version digitally. For those waiting on a physical copy, we’re a bi-monthly release from AP, but you can check us out at your local comic shop come August! Head down and pre-order today! Check us out in August!

And now, for the news and updates!

Physical Copies:
There have been a few questions in regards to whether or not the AP releases will be uncensored. The answer to that is simply: Not at this time. If the censored release is a big enough of a hit, then yeah we’ll go ahead and release the uncensored version in one nice large volume (maybe 2). And I’ll go ahead and say if this is a HUGE success we’ll release future editions of the comic uncensored for everyone. But just in case that people aren’t aware, the decision to keep the comic censored for store release, was so that we could actually be stocked onto shelves and not hidden away in the adults only sections. Some comic shops don’t even have these areas, so keeping that in mind, keeping the book censored gives us a wider release. Meanwhile Uncensored release will be exclusive to Patreon until further release.

Store front!
So, um, I guess there’s some confusion as to this website being the storefront from which to purchase copies of RAGS. While we’re unsure of how that was misconstrued, we’d like to apologize for the confusion. The places to purchase (digitally) are our Shopify store: New Age Ninja Corps, or Comix Central. There may be a Comixology release sometime soon, depending on whether or not they kick back our PDFs again.

General News:
With issue 2 down, we have about 4 more to go! Issue 2 will be the last comic that’ll be placed here on the website so enjoy it for free while its still going. Also, the image above was created by: https://twitter.com/Azriel29665397 go check her out on twitter, or her merchandise store here  She’s open for commissions and we like her art. Just check out that gat!

Anyway that’s it for the updates. We’ll try and keep up but with everything else, us continuing to move forward all depends on our level of success.

From Garageband to Pro-Skaters?

So I’m sure you’ve heard the news like half a dozen times we’ve been picked up by Antarctic Press!

Rags-sample

OMG we’re going to have a barcode!

So what does this mean for us going forward? Well the best news is that our deadlines have significantly been shifted to the right and we’ll probably have to significantly cut or alter some content as, and let’s be honest and real here, some of the heavier shit we planned on doing probably won’t fit for retail and we’d rather adjust fire now than get shit for it. This mainly is going to affect the final issue and how that ending plays out, but I have a plan to ensure that the same themes plays at the end. You’ll see what I mean later on.

Now then the good news. For now, we’re reworking our patreon rewards and goals so that they’re now more in line to what we want to get to. I may now actually consider a kickstarter or an indiegogo campaign to help get us in the right spot.

For Patreons, though, I still will stick to my guns that this will be the only area to which you’ll be able to receive both Uncensored copies of the work and variant covers. And instead of doing the big budget thing, I’m fully committed to utilizing smaller artists that have amazing talents.

People such as: Mistah Mahvel!

Mistah Mahvel Venomized Regina Variant

and rags_FinalSashiand maybe even SETonx . Even maybe some special guest artists on some issues. But who’s to say?

But more importantly, we’ve welcomed Capucine Drapala on board as our colorist. Check their work out here

Capucine Colors

Capucine colours are gnarly!

Anyhoo, that’s all the announcements for now I think. We’ll get back to work and stuff. Take care battles!

*PATREON UPDATES*

Patreon

Alright battles, I’m doing the last of the shipping orders today so if I don’t have your address on file, please update your Patreon information so that I can snag that.

This is to ensure that I can do all the orders in one shot, rather than the back and forths.

International Shipments I’m taking care of today. So PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE Update your shipping addresses. So when the next round happens this goes out much more smoothly =)

Also this is so I can start shipping out SWAG Items to everyone.
Thanks fams!

Proofs-copies, Ninjas and an update.

Proofs.jpg

Good morning everyone! Quick update. Just got the proof copy for the Censored Version of Rags yesterday. Once we finish going through it to see what issues and corrections that need to be made, we’ll be doing a give-away contest. As always, it’ll involve an Easter Egg hunt.

On the Patreon side of the house we’re continuing to work on releasing more of Regina’s back story  through these little “time captures”. I know that folks want to find out more about Regina during her time in the Marine Corps and the incidents that sent her on her downward spiral but I don’t think doing that now is as important as solidifying and ensuring that the main story gets told the right way. Don’t get me wrong we’re excited that people are interested and want to know more about our heroine. I will say though, that the information is out there. We’ve laid out that groundwork before-hand, ensuring that we had a solid back-story before we moved forward on anything.

SHAMELESS PLUG TIME!

So entering into the indie comics world I stumbled across this titacular piece of artwork from Impacto! Comics. Red Ninja Momiji is a Ninja Mercenary for Hire that is tasked with escorting a young girl to an airplane. Of course this doesn’t go smoothly and pretty soon there’s action-set-piece after wonderfully drawn action-set-piece. Go check it out over here, and ensure you leave those guys a review.

Follow the Momiji team here on twitter

Alright guys that’s all for now! Remember, we can’t do this all without your support! Share with friends, leave reviews! These are more important to creators than currency. It lets us know how well we’re doing.

Happy Regina is best Regina

Physical Copies, Moving Forward and a New Face.

Hey Battles!
Well, here we are! Getting things in motion and in full swing. Apologies for not updating the site with blog posts more often, but I’m trying to rectify that. So, just a few things here to keep everyone updated on whats going on with us.

Digital Copies: Digital Copies of Rags #1 are available here: Censored and Uncensored. As always you can just come visit the site and chill here until the the pages are finished releasing if you don’t wish to spend any shekels.

Physical Copies: I should be getting my Proofs this week. Shortly after I’ll be getting these out to Patreons and after that, Physicals will be made available on Indy Planet….for now.

Issue #2: After a short break we’re back out onto starting production on issue #2. We’ll be getting some sketch-work done here shortly and starting the process once again. So keep an eye out on Twitter because that’s typically where we hang out and post our progress, though we’ll start utilizing this site more moving forward.

New Face: So as everyone knows Regina is based off of Liz Finnegan’s face. While we had a few pictures to go off of, we really didn’t have the angles right and while Regina did look unique, we still wanted to get a closer resemblance to Liz, so while its with a heavy heart we retire Regina Chan 2.0, its with great pleasure we give to you, Regina v3.0f

Secondly, and possible the most important! We actually were honored to be given the opportunity to meet up with the real Regina Ragowski: Liz Finnegan and we have photo evidence of said encounter!

Anyway look forward to more thing coming down the line. Though it seems that we’ll probably not do the Justin Beiber arc as planned, but that also all depends on final numbers and whatnot. I’ll still have to find the time to locate a publisher, but with work, school and everything else going on, I’m unsure of how I’ll go about doing that.
Rags_Prologue_Comicoftheyear_CropAlso if you didn’t know, the Prologue / Teaser won Comic of the Year overall at Comixcentral. Great shit for us! Anyway catch you guys later and I’ll try to update more as things happen and come along. Peaces!
