Changes to the way I’m posting comics

You may have noticed that single panels from the webcomic are showing, instead of full pages. I’ve found that the blog isn’t a great place to navigate the story, and had already mirrored pages over at Duck webcomics. Now, I think it will be a better experience for readers if they view the comic there. The teaser images may also be shrunk as well, so that they don’t overwhelm the blog so much.

I’ve started exporting the finished pages with greys instead of halftones, and got rid of some of the annoying moire effects that were going on. This is a learning process, and now I know a bit more about Manga Studio’s export settings.

Jiggles and the Black Shaft

Jiggles and the Black Shaft is the 4th book in the Jiggles series. The ebook can be ordered from Amazon and Smashwords. The paperback can also be ordered from certain Amazon stores.

Patreon supporters at the $2.50 level will be getting a copy of the ebook later this month, as well as the usual book from the archives.

The blurb-

Murder, mystery, saucy fun, and maybe even a ghost.

The Jiggleswick Air crew are enjoying a weekend at a country house. They’ve been invited along by a family friend, to help Lord Carstairs solve the mystery of his father’s death. Along the way, they can’t help but get involved in the love lives of the guests and staff.

Ally helps young Eileen and Lord Carstairs take their relationship to the next level. Jiggles meets the gorgeous American Erin, and they both want to bed her old crush Godfrey Hardwicke. And Ginge finds the source of the mysterious moans and groans that haunt the house, in the naughtiest possible way.

But then another death throws everyone into a murder mystery. Is it connected to the death of old Lord Carstairs? What have the mysterious foursome of mystics and exorcists, who have arrived to hunt the ghostly noises, got to do with it? And what part does the secret passage that the staff call the Black Shaft play in proceedings?

Jiggleswick Air investigate in their own, inimitable way.
