Creator & Author Banned from Tencent’s WeChat

Author, Marcus Medina, banned from WeChat for an indefinite about of time.

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.

Happy Birthday, Marcus!

Today, my 33rd birthday!
Currently, I am in Shanghai taking a break from attending masters courses in Chinese History at my university. I’m slowly editing the current 1st novel and looking over the outline before I begin working on other pieces.

Celebrate today by sharing this post and getting the word out about my work!

In celebration of the 18th anniversary of the conception of Yscariot, I am personally revealing the artwork of a character to appear and star in the second chapter in the Yscariot storyline.

She will appear as the antagonist in the second book. What her motives are as far as wanting to kill Yscariot will be a mystery, but until then, we will have to first find out what leads to these events after finishing the first chapter! Stay tuned and thank you for following! Don’t stop supporting my project!

Seventeen Years of Yscariot™!!! New Updates!

YsCardIn 1998, Yscariot started out as “Project H”. After experiencing a few troubles in the previous and following years and playing and reading through a few Japanese game and comic book stories, I took it upon myself to create a story of my own.

The background story on how Yscariot™ was created has already been told time and time again, but it is hard to refrain from telling and Continue reading Seventeen Years of Yscariot™!!! New Updates!

Happy Birthday to Cassandra Lebron from Cassy’s Art. Not only did she create awesome art on the character, Trinity, but she is also working on the cover art for the full novel! I am glad to have her on my team! I just did a quick concept sketch on Yscariot from Verse 18 in the free preview Yscariot: ZETA (disguised as “Justice”).
