Cloudy Cuckoo Cosmail Comic 1

Wow, wow, wow! Here it is after I kept saying I’d upload it and then not! The first ever Cloudy Cuckoo Cosmail comic! Top is asked the most crucious… cruciul… crucial? Crucial. The most crucial question of all, and then we get some advertisement in for everyone’s favorite pizza place! I can’t thank Jameshark enough for bringing Top to life, or at least still life. Still, look at that ball, they’re so bouncy they’re just full of life.

At some point I’d like to make this a regular thing, but I need to get more patrons before that can happen. Consider it! A new chapter every month, weekly updates on what I’m working on… words! Either way, thanks for reading.

I’m planning on making a dedicated page for comics on this website, both for Cosmail and other CCC comics that might crop up over time, as well as just a place to list the Pokemon Moon comic and other such things.

New! Wandering Fortunes Chapter 26: Sea Spectrum

The newest Wandering Fortunes chapter is up! We’re all on a boat! Boat adventures! We’re going fishing, and it’s going to be great, and we’re definitely not going to get eaten by a sea monster!

Also, Ropak struggles with guilt.

This month has been weird. There hasn’t been a new Odemon (and this chapter is a day late) because my laptop has been sent for repairs. I hope to have it this week but Best Buy actually has it repaired right now and it’s just apparently taking them a whole week to run diagnostics and sheesh.

Also I’d mentioned a comic for June but that’s late too, but it’s going to release this weekend.

New Profile for the Salenth Kingdom

I’ve put up the profile for the Salenth Kingdom, one of two major scalago kingdoms on Derantu and the setting for the second half of Wandering Fortunes. It’s a pretty nice place, actually!

New! Wandering Fortunes Chapter 25: Top Chef

Top is a chef in the new Wandering Fortunes chapter! Top had some plans earlier, and now those plans come to fruition… or should I say, pizzaion? No because I don’t even know how to pronounce that.

Wandering Fortunes Chapter 25: Top Chef

Top’s opened up T’s own restaurant, and though business is slow, when T gets a customer things just might blow up in T’s face if T isn’t careful! Will Top’s friends make sure Top’s new restaurant doesn’t get closed down?

By the way I’m experimenting with using pronouns based on people’s names, *name*ly just using the first letter of their name. I dunno how it’ll go but it’s gotta be better than forcing discussions about gender…

Princess Serani profile is up, and an announcement about old chapters

The princess of the Salenth Kingdom, Serani, gets her own profile page! She’s headstrong and not going to take anything from anyone and the gossip corner has all sorts of rumors about her and also the protagonist of Wandering Fortunes maybe wants to give her a smooch

ANYWAY, I’ve taken down old in-progress chapters for Slubes and Darmenzi. They’re old and I dunno that I want them public. They’re each *one dollar* as an ebook so it’s not a big deal. The previews of the final book are still up, though. It’s just that I’ve improved so much since these in-progress chapters I want to look forward. I don’t know if I’ll do this regularly, like every book’s serial release will eventually be made unavailable, maybe at some point they’ll be so good that I won’t even mind them being up. And at some point maybe Slubes and Darmenzi will just become free ebooks all the time. Who knows what the future holds!

However if I do hide unfinished Wandering Fortunes chapters they’ll still be available for patrons on Patreon. Slubes and Darmenzi would be too but I wasn’t posting chapters directly into Patreon back then it seems so those are just links to pages that don’t exist now. Anyway, speaking of Patreon, I’m gonna post another new profile on there today if you’re interested, and of course the next chapter is already available for patrons, so check it out if you have an interest in reading things and then reading more things!

Cloudy Cuckoo Cosmail accepting submissions!

So for a while now I’ve had a goal on my Patreon where I start “Cloudy Cuckoo Cosmail” which would be a comic series where people (like you!) send emails to characters in the Cloudy Cuckoo Cosmos and they get answered in a little comic story. For various reasons I’ve changed that to “regularly update” and am going ahead with this crazy thing. This will not be drawn by me, but by a talented artist, possibly rotated.

You can send a message to any character from the Cloudy Cuckoo Cosmos and I’ll choose one for each comic. (There’s a list of major characters here, but I’ll accept messages to even the most minor of characters.) You can ask a character something specific to them or a story they appeared in, something generic (like Top’s favorite brand of chips or whatever), or you don’t even have to ask a question, I dunno, do what you want, I’m not asking the questions here. Other characters may appear as well depending on the message, so feel free to ask about other characters in your email! Plus some of them don’t even have internet access, so like, I’m gonna have to reroute any emails Numer gets to Zeth and have him deliver them…

I would prefer receiving the emails at my actual email, dutholec at cloudycuckoocosmos.com, for ease of keeping track, but I’ll consider ones sent in the comments or on Mastodon or Twitter or Patreon or wherever! Just format it how it would look as an actual email so it can appear as such in the comic. Also, have fun with it, because that’s my goal regardless.

Wandering Fortunes Chapter 24 is up!

Wandering Fortunes Chapter 24: I Love a Parade!

Wait. There’s a love plot?

If you want to see where this is going sooner than next month, you can take a look at my Patreon! Patrons can see chapters a month early, as well as extra regular updates. You can also give to my Ko-fi for an early chapter or a signed copy of a book!

April Fool’s!

I mean obviously it was April Fool’s day, I wasn’t really going to start writing horror, I’d done this before, but still, it was interesting writing in the horror genre for this story!

A bit of backstory on it: I’d originally thought of the idea of having a Slenderman-type character be elected president back when I’d watched Marble Hornets (years ago before it’d been even close to finishing) because the idea of a tall, thin, gaunt fellow in a suit just kind of… made me think of Abraham Lincoln? The honesty part reflects that. But when I started researching Slenderman I discovered that the original mythos for it suggested that Slenderman captured large groups of children, forcing towns to give them up, and I went

wait a minute

There was something in the news not too long ago about children being forcibly removed from their families, WASN’T THERE???

So it ended up having more related to current events than I’d originally planned. But when pieces fall into place I’m not gonna take them out.

Anyway, the main character is trans.

I’ve decided to change genres. A new story is enclosed.

I know it’s a bit sudden, but I’ve grown weary of the humor. I think it’s time for a change. I know it’s the middle of a story, but I’ve written a new one for this, as I am going to start writing horror stories now. Also, maybe political ones, I’m not sure yet. Let me know what you think.

New Species Profile up for Kanhase

Introduced in the most recent chapter, kanhases can be found all throughout Derantu but vary widely throughout. Check out the profile! And check out the new Pokemon Moon comic coming sometime within the next week unless I forget but I definitely won’t.

(A new profile will be going up soon early for Patreon backers, but because the middle of the month snuck up on me I… haven’t written it yet. I need to get on that.)
