Such updates will be automatic with the cover artist to be announced and determined later.
Following this release, a Spanish, Russian, and French translation of Issue One will be announced on a later date as well as upcoming news on the second novel’s (WRATH OF THE ROYALS) standing and the plan to release the third comic will also be announced.
Words from the creator of Yscariot:
To keep these works coming faster, we need your support. For most of the the last and past year, I have been the sole source of building the story, but I can’t do it alone. Yscariot is heavily dependent on you, our current and prospect supporters and followers to create the next new superhero for a new age. Whether or not this story or comic is for you, there are always people who may be interested in this story, so please let them know about Project Yscariot! It may be a 20-year old pre-planned project all saved up as notes and data on paper, computer, and even my own mind, but it is still new to the world in its telling. I hope to create an exciting story that has its own life for as long as the world allows it to. Thank you.
After a rocky recovery from the Chinese New Year vacation, the Sphere of Light saga will continue in two weeks! Keep on the look out for more information, and if you have not yet done so, check out the first issue comic on Amazon and GooglePlay!
For no reason stated by Tencent, the leader of the movement was banned indefinitely on their WeChat platform ON HIS BIRTHDAY!
While it definitely made for the worst birthday gift ever, the author of the Yscariot series had a great time celebrating his birthday with delicious Italian food and cake in Shanghai, China.
Back to the banning. A ban on the WeChat platform, which is primarily the main form of communication in China, means a return to the dark ages from a period of 90 days or more. You will not be able to communicate (send/receive messages) along with other things.
Here is the official statement from the author:
To all of my friends in China, if you are reading this, please know that I received the majority of your messages and I want to say thank you so much for the birthday wishes and greetings.
The Yscariot: Issue 01 comic book will probably experience a setback in physical sales due to the WeChat debacle, but I will work to find a way to communicate with you all to work something out.
Sorry for the trouble and hope to catch up with you all again.
After a number of years, the Earth gets an upgraded look. Also, for the first time ever, the Earth is now properly labeled on this site to show where land is located. We’ll fix the labels in time for the comic’s debut over the coming weeks!
