Hey everyone!

We noticed an uptick in page views this week! We're glad our readers are returning - Thank you so much for continuing to read Aikonia!

Our numbers aren't what they used to be before the hiatus yet, but we think that this is mostly because not all of our previous readers are aware that Aikonia is back yet. Please help us spread the word by sharing Aikonia on social media and with your friends!

And, of course, don't forget that you can join us on Discord to chat and give us your feedback! :)

Hey everyone!

Sorry we took so long, but the page is finally shaded properly and is now available for your viewing pleasure!

This page marks the end of Chapter 6. We have some really big plans for Chapter 7 and we can't wait to share them with you!

For Patrons: Thank you all so much for your support! While we take some time to build a buffer of pages for Chapter 7, we plan on keeping you updated with exclusive content. Here are a few things we have planned for you:

  • - The series of new journal entries is starting up next week, exclusively on Patreon!
  • - We'll be posting previews of Chapter 7 as we build the buffer
  • - We'll be sharing more bonus content like art timelapses


And don't forget that we're always available to chat on Slack! We'll be posting a few things there and answering some of your questions too! If you're not a patron and would like early access to all these goodies, as well as the new journal entry series, please consider supporting us by becoming a patron on Patreon!

Thank you all and have a wonderful November!

Hey everyone!
Sorry for the delay on today's page. Karina couldn't get the shaded/final version of the page done on time, so we decided to just post the flats in the meantime.

You can expect an update with the full-coloured version soon!

Have a wonderful week :)

Hey everyone!

So, this week's page is late again. Although I'd like to mention that Page 42 will mark the end of Chapter 6! We'll be posting the page on Patreon as soon as it's done and the page should be up on the Aikonia website next Monday. I'll try to post some other stuff on Patreon in the meantime though.

After Chapter 6 is over, we'll be taking a very short break to focus on building a buffer for Chapter 7 and we'll start posting the new journal entry series on Patreon as well! We're very excited about the new Journal story and we can't wait to share it with all of you! :)

Have a wonderful week!

Hey everyone!

So, you've probably noticed that today's page isn't up yet. We'll have a few goodies up on Patreon this week to make up for that! We're not sure if this week's page will be up tomorrow or the next week, so just stay tuned until then!

We're launching VRNinja on Steam tomorrow, so that's been keeping us pretty busy!

Thank you for your patience! And don't forget, if you're a patron, you can chat with us on the patron-exclusive Slack whenever you want! Have a wonderful week :)

Hey everyone!

So, Karina has been recording herself working on this page and we've turned that footage into three timelapse videos. The first one is the sketching of the page and was posted for $4+ patrons on Patreon.

The second timelapse video is the inking and was posted for $7+ patrons right here.

And the last one will be available to all patrons some time tomorrow.

I also thought I'd share that MADSOFT Games released VRNinja on the Oculus Store for Oculus Rift last Friday! You can check out the game right here!

Have a wonderful week!

Hey everyone!

Just wanted to post a quick blurb entry mentioning that this week's page is a little late! Karina is finishing up the colours/shading right now but it will probably be too late to post it by the time she's done tonight. So I'll be uploading the page tomorrow morning instead!

I did post an incomplete version of the page (flats) on Patreon though, in case you want to check that out in the mean time!

Hey everyone!

Just thought I'd post a quick reminder that we have an active Patreon and that we rely on that to keep the webcomic going!

If you enjoy reading Aikonia, you should consider supporting us on Patreon! You'll get early access to pages, bonus content, exclusive updates, and you'll be helping us keep this comic alive! Not only that but you'll also get access to the exclusive Slack team that gives all our Patrons a direct line of communication with us! We've been sharing behind-the-scenes stuff, answering questions, and just having regular discussions on there. Getting to know our supporters has been great and I really hope we can get more people on there! All it takes is $1 on Patreon!

Thank you and enjoy this week's page!

Hello, everyone!

There's a bit of a delay on the page that was going to go up today on account that I did not have access to my computer most of the day yesterday and couldn't complete the shading on time. The page is very action-oriented, so there are lots of individual panels that need my attention.

Hang in there; the fully coloured page should be going up on the site tomorrow, rather than today.

Hey everyone!

Sorry for the slight delay on posting that page. As you can see, lots of detail there, so it took a tiny bit longer than expected. But we did post the sketch on Patreon a few days ago as a preview!

And, speaking of Patreon, we actually lost a few patrons due to our recent unexpected hiatus, which is totally understandable! But I thought I'd post a little reminder about it since we were planning on starting to post the new journal entry series (which Corina and Karina have been working on really hard!) soon and we've gone below the "New Journal Series" milestone by just $2. I was hoping we could get one or more new patrons to help us pass that milestone again! If you have any questions regarding Patreon, please don't hesitate to ask us! You can post in the comments, tweet at us, or email us directly at hello@aikoniacomic.com

Also! If you'd like to support us but can't become a patron (which is okay, don't feel bad!), you can totally still help us out by subscribing to Aikonia on Webtoons! We found out that if we have over 5,000 subscribers on there, Webtoons themselves will pledge $100 to our Patreon!

Thank you all so much for your support so far! Have a wonderful week :)

So, as Karina stated in her previous blurb entry, she can't really work on any new pages due to her current life situation. We're very understanding of that and did not want to add more pressure on top of what she is currently going through.

I've noticed, however, that some of our readers do not feel the same way as we do towards this. Aikonia is supposed to be a fun project, to tell a story that we want to tell, and if some of you are going to turn it into a burden by bashing us and writing negative comments and not appreciating the fact that we're already doing our best, then please, simply stop coming to this website.

Karina is already going through a lot and some of you's attitude is definitely not helping her get through it.

To those of you who have been requesting I keep you all updated and in the loop, here's what I have to say: "Karina is dealing with a lot, there is literally nothing I can do until she can work on new pages."

What else is there to communicate? Do I have to write a new blurb entry with this sentence every single day? I assumed that this was implied and that not having to repeat the same statement on a weekly basis wouldn't count as "lack of communication". There is no point in writing more blurb entries stating the exact same fact over and over, so if you'd like an update when there is nothing new to update you on, then please, just read the quoted statement again as if I had just posted it.

To everyone else: thank you for your patience and support. We're really hoping to have Aikonia back up and running soon.
