Toxic Cover
And this marks the end of the bonus origin comic for Shrapnel. Next week we'll be officially starting Chapter 6: Call of the Siren, told from Arrow's perspective. For those who are supporting the Patreon, you'll get to see the pencil versions of the pages a week before the colour pages go live.

Thanks again to all of those who purchased a print copy! I hope you enjoy it!

Toxic 17
Hello everyone!

This marks the end of the bonus chapter for Toxic. I'll be finishing up with the cover image (that I totally should have posted first, oops), then we'll be onto Chapter 6! In the meantime, I'm already working on the Chapter 5 print volume, and I'll keep you updated as it comes along.

As a reminder, the Chapter 4 print volume is now available for sale: www.createspace.com/7197393

Toxic 15
A ray of light through yonder window breaks... 'Tis Chapter 4 and it hath gone to print!

But actually: After a lot of useless customer service, I problem solved the print issues myself and reformatted the book for the 10th time (and I sincerely hope that the printer does not change these specs a 4th time, as I can use my re-re-re-updated template for Chapter 5 which hopefully will make up for lost time). What this means for you fine folk is that the print proof has been ordered for approval. This means that I should receive the proof copy by July 3rd. If all looks good to go, I'll announce the comic being available for sale shortly after.

In the meantime...Toxic is nearly finished. For those of you supporting on Patreon, you'll get to see some sketches, the cover, and bonus content going into this, as well as determining what kind of bonus content you'd like to see going forward.

Thank you for reading!

Pride Month

Pride Month is here, and what better way to celebrate than by reading a comic book full of gay pirates? I personally can’t think of a better way (aside from actively participating in marches and pride festivities)!

If you’re looking for a comic full of attractive characters, with a mature and well developed story, or even just some steamy hot scenes, look no further!

Weaponry is a Create Your Own Adventure comic book that is currently prepping for its 6th chapter out of 10. Weaponry creatures a unique experience where readers get a say in how the story unfolds! At the end of every chapter readers can cast their vote to help sway the direction of our protagonist’s paths.

And did we mention there’s lots of booty to plunder? ;)

The world of Weaponry also has a diverse cast with POC and even representation for bisexuals, heteroflexible, questioning, and ace spectrum identifying.

Dive in to the submersible world of Uphelios where Weaponry takes place! Help explore and develop characters with the creator and make the story your own.

Below are links to guide you on your path to discovery—or if you feel so inclined—to help support the creator by becoming a Patreon!

Thank you for reading, and have an amazing Pride Month!

Hello, hello, hello!

After a mad-cap pace and gruelling schedule, which may have permanently bloodshot my eyes I am happy to report:

Legend of the Quill is ready for print!

For those of you who read First Born, this is the next book in the Ul-Zaorith world, and the start of an epic high fantasy trilogy!

The book clocks in at just over 440 pages, and is illustrated by yours truly. It will be released at this time only in soft cover. The selling price is only $25 and you can pre-order your copy here: www.astracrompton.com/legendof…

If you're outside of the Victoria area and would still like to order a copy, please send me a message and I can get a shipping estimate for you. I will be basing my initial order numbers off of the Pre-Order interest, so if you want one, now is the time to get in on this great deal! I'll be signing and doing a sketch in each copy for the Pre-Order, and you'll get a limited edition bookmark to go along with it, so please do order a copy!

For those who aren't familiar with Quill:
This is an epic high fantasy, in the tradition of saga stories. If you like books like The Malazan Book of the Fallen, or Lord of the Rings, or The Eternal Champion, you will probably like my book. It does contain some scenes that may be too graphic for young or sensitive readers. Buckle in for magic, sword fights, ancient prophecies and mischievous Demons -- all set in a unique and fresh setting with new races and cultures for you to explore. I've spent 15 years building this world, with history, languages, maps, flora, fauna, gods and magics, so I truly hope you'll take a chance on me and read The Prophet's Tale, Book One: Legend of the Quill.
