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!

That’s right! I have been doing too much lately and little of it had to do with Yscariot! I must apologize for the long delays! Working on this alone means I had a lot of juggling to do. Classes and seminars are done, but to enjoy the time off and complete the thesis in peace, a man such as myself need funds, and then those funds will be used to go on vacation. Yes, every man [and woman] needs a little pampering, so go for it.
The Special Edition eBook of Yscariot: Sphere of Light has been removed from the KindleUnlimited program for reasons unknown. This could possibly be due to the concept of introducing new content [hopefully] every season. Regardless of the reason, this works in our favor as we originally looked to pull the eBook from the program to track data easier.
