Faeries and Ents' update blog!
Hit that follow button on kickstarter now! https://bit.ly/LOCV1TPB
The Life On Cora series is coming back to crowdfunding in January, now combining all five stories into one neat paperback! This all ages comic series has been a fan-favorite since Atzi and The Ritual came out in 2018 and has been growing strong with four more unique and fantastical adventures since.
As older fans of the series will know, the world of Cora is a strange one. A bright blue core gives off pulsating light to create a day and night cycle for continents that orbit it like planets to a sun. And with a single gigantic cloud to give water to this strange place, the creatures on it are sure to be just as weird.
Now you can read all these stories in one 150+ page trade paperback, coming in hard- and softcover. It will contain all five issues released so far:
- Atzi and the Ritual (Minerrale, 2018)
- A Flying Toskr (Minerrale, 2020)
- Oktaz Climbs (Martin Fisher, 2020)
- Inner Talents (Kimberley Kovac, 2021)
- Tiny Travels (Martin Fisher, 2022)
As well as a ton of additions, concepts, and extra material never seen before.
Each story can be read separately and further builds on the foundation laid by the previous entry in the series. The entire series has been drawn by series creator Mike Jimmy de Bruin, and colored by Eristeine.
Eristeine also shows her skills as a standalone artist for this volume, creating the softcover variant that will be available during the kickstarter and later on our website.
The hardcover will feature a cover by Jaden Lanning, who at her young age definitely will be going places with her art. These will be limited to only 50 printed copies, and will be numbered, and signed by Mike Jimmy as well as contain a full sketch by him on the inside cover.
Of course all separate issues are available as well, together with all other books and series Faeries and Ents has published since they started in 2018. From anthologies like My Cup Of Tea and Over A Coffee, to self-standing series like The Sin Killer and The Radiant Sight, Faeries and Ents has something for everyone.
So be sure to head on over to https://bit.ly/LOCV1TPB and be sure to sign up for the kickstarter. It will go live on January 23rd with a launch party on indiecomicsnetwork.com , and the first 24 hours you will be able to get a limited offer bookmark with your order!
The world is upside down but MAN we're busy!
What's been happening with Faeries and Ents? Well... Plenty!
First of all, we're PROUD to present to you our TWO NEW SERIES!
The Radiant Sight
By Martin Fisher and Rokka15
A Korean drama inspired romance about Bit-Na, a girl from the slums who finds a magical dress that makes her irresistible to everyone around them.
Will she find love through this magical dress, or will it be her downfall...?
Check it out now on Indiegogo!
The Sin Killer
by MarV Vasconcelos
The power to bring back the dead, in the hands of someone with a very clear sense of judgment. John owns the cemetery with his undead companions Michael the doberman and Gabriel the raven, you wish you had never committed any crimes when encountering them...
He will be your judge, jury, and executioner.
Be sure to check them both out in the store and pick them up!
Now for the stuff that's happened!
We finished and fulfilled Life On Cora #4 - Inner Talents!
Again the Life On Cora team is back, with Kimberly Kovac creating the story, Mike Jimmy de Bruin being back for the pencils and inks, and Eristeine returning to do the colors!
In this issue we follow the Misyus, an underwater creature not unlike the Natl and Töskr from Life On Cora #1 and #2, but with a society and way of life completely different!
Their Inner Talents Ritual determines everything for an individual... But what if you want to be something other than what you're naturally good at? Follow Calais in this beautiful story to find out!
Been busy, very busy!
While Life On Cora #3 is still a few days on Indiegogo, the proof prints have come in 2 days ago! We've also worked on Life On Cora #4 quite a bit, and it's looking fiiiiiiine!
Working with both Kimberley Kovac and Martin Fisher as the writers for these comics is a wonderful experience that I cannot emphasize enough.
Seeing colored pages come in from Eristeine is always a delight. This series is going a completely different level of quality thanks to them and I'm proud to have them on our team!
Check out the Indiegogo campaign here: https://igg.me/at/lifeoncora3/x/23366240#/
It has also been opened up for preorders on the website!
The radiant sight is a new series coming soon to Faeries and Ents! And we're proud to present it!
The first pages are currently in production by our new resident artist Arch and they're coming along nicely. The series follows Kumiko, a young woman from a lower class who finds a magical dress which, when worn, makes the wearer irresistible to everyone around them.
Will she use it for her own gain, or to make a difference for the masses that occupy the slums with her?
.Things are quiet because there's so much going on behind the scenes. Buuuut here's a quick sum up:
- Life On Cora #3 is coming along FAST! Keep an eye out!
- Life On Cora #3 will be colored by the wonderful Eristeine, who did the visuals for Yo-Ho A Pirate's Adventure by Minerrale.
- Lortia has been hired to help create a boardgame, that's right! It's only in the planning phase, but we're working on that too!
- We're part of an artbox, with tons of little goodies from all kinds of folks. This is going to be a good one
I'm going to try and keep people updated more in the coming months as we're going strong and steady, but through it all you often forget the blog you promised you'd keep up. Sorry guys!
July 28th, 2020
Busy days at FaE! Talk about tons of things happening!
M.A.R.C., while being given back to the original creators, has been a bit quiet, on the updates, but it's close to completion and shipping. We're sorry it has taken longer than intended but we promise to everyone who backed that it's coming for sure. I have spoken with Hario in the background, and it's still rolling. The comic has been printed, and the goodies are coming in.
It should be shipped out soon.
My Cup Of Tea got our thumbs up for the printer yesterday. after some minor proof issues! In a few weeks we'll be getting another load of boxes! It's so exciting we're almost exploding!! So many epic goodies, and so much pride we're feeling for everyone involved making this happen!
For Life On Cora, Lortia has been looking for a new writer... And he found TWO of them!
Introducing Kimberly Kovac and Martin Fisher. Their input on the world, the creatures, and their creative juices are just incredible, and will definitely get this series some wonderful new places to visit.
Woah! Where did February go?
And March, actually, time flies! First off, we hope you are all safe and healthy inside having to deal with Covid-19, and wish you the best of luck facing this terrible crisis.
With that, it's been busy on this end finishing up Infinite Guardian and Life On Cora. Both have been printed now! And they're beauties if I ever saw one.
You can of course get them in the comic shop on our website. Lortia is super proud of both of them, having spent the last few months working hard to finish them all. Both are available for €2.99 for digital copies, and €4.99+shipping for physical ones.
We also started another big thing! My Cup Of Tea is the next comic anthology we're currently making with SIXTEEN(!!!) creators this time around, it's going to be a blast to see this book come into fruition and see all those wonderful comics all put together in one big album.
Lastly, with all cons in the Netherlands shut down until June 1st, this weekend (28-29 March) we will be attending an online convention! Stay Home Comic Con is organized by many other artists who just couldn't go to comic cons but still wanted the fun of them! Please do check their website as there are nearly 200 fellow creators and artists of all kinds in there! stayhomecomiccon.nl/
Be sure to follow us on Twitch, where Lortia will answer questions, draw life, show off these two new comics, and plenty more! ...Not to mention some extra little things. ;)
I think that's about it, sorry we skipped on February, it's been a huge undertaking getting all these comics done in time.
Stay safe, and we'll see what the next month will bring!
Welcome to the new year!
It's 2020...Happy new year from Faeries and Ents!!!
It's been a busy start of the new year here at FaE. So much going on, so many new things to tell you!
Lortia has been busy finishing up Infinite Guardian chapter 2, and is DONE! Soon we'll be putting this chapter on our website for digital and physical copies, but we're still trying to get the kickstarter to reach its goal. Want to help us out? There's only a few days left and we're at only 25% funded. It's your best chance to get the new chapter together with the old, with discounts even. For higher tiers there's some epic goodies you can get yourself too!
Check it out!
Life On Cora issue 2 is so close to completion it's daunting, but we're getting there! We're slowly looking into getting issue 3 scripted and ready for creation too but we're still juggling some ideas around. Haven't gotten issue 1 yet? You're missing out on these fluffy creatures!
Both comics will be available before March this year, so they're ready and printed for convention season for us!

But before any of that... It's nearly Christmas and the end of the decade! What happened to you in the past ten years that you remember most fondly? Feel free to reply to this email telling us all about it, we'd love to hear it. :)
For us it's definitely starting this company and our webcomics and novels, publishing our own books and comics, and actually see all kinds of hard work come to fruition.
We hope you're in a great place, and if you're not that you will be really soon. Let's make this next decade even more awesome eh?

Life On Cora issue 2 is hard under way too, we're going to do our best to get it all done before the end of February. We're getting there!
That should be all for December, we'll send you another one soon, keep your eyes out for those new releases! ;)
We started a blog... Thing.
So we started a blog... Because apparently some of you lovely folks actually follow what we're doing, weird ain't it?
So what's going on at FaE in December 2019?
Let's start with Flying Words! It's currently being shipped out to us from the printer, and should arrive in the coming days (or, if you read this later, it will be already out), so get yourself a copy if you can! You don't want to miss these 11 writers all neatly packed into one book. We're excited, are you excited? You should be excited.
Second, COMICS! Yes! They're actually coming around again! LOC issue 2, and IG chapter 2 are hard on their way, Lortia is working his butt off for convention season 2020 so both will be available around the end of January. Both are 32 pages long, and he's at 21 pages sketched for both, going for 2 or 3 pages a week on each.
Lastly, we're planning around a new comic anthology for next year, opening pitches in January. Keep an eye out, we're going all out for the next one, can you guess the theme? ;)
Hmm... I think that was it, have a great last month of the year! We'll try and update these blogs at least once a month.
See you later lovelies! <3
