Solo Acoustic Chapter Two

Solo Acoustic Chapter 2 is here! Not only will the formerly single-panel Solo make the transition to FULL PAGES every week with this chapter, Troy and I are going a little extra crazy. We went with that BTTF cover homage because this arc actually takes place during and behind-the-scenes of Sparkshooter Chapter 1. Yes, we're insane. So, check out the cover and come back next Friday as the story picks up at the Battle. We hope you enjoy it!

Solo Acoustic News

Big news here about Chapter Two of Solo Acoustic, the webcomic from Troy Brownfield and Ben Olson. As you may know, Solo is the weekly single-panel sibling of Sparkshooter by Troy and Enkaru. Here, we have a NSFW musical message about the nature of Solo going forward. Enjoy!
